This little guy was, for the record, the happiest baby I have ever met to date. And his smile was outrageously contagious. With two older sisters he better enjoy it while he can! ;)

How did you first get into babywearing? I wore my first child in a borrowed ergo at about 18 months old while on vacation in Ga.  We were doing lots of hiking and she loved it.  However, my second child was the one that really got me into babywearing.   She was a colicky baby that was only happy being held, especially in the evenings.  She would scream for at least 4 hours a night with little to no relief.  I tried everything; squats, rocking, chiropractor, probiotics, nursing.  Nothing helped!  A friend of mine said, “Try wrapping her.”  She handed me a hybrid stretch Wrapsody Rowan wrap and showed me how to use it.  That night when she started screaming I got the wrap out and once she was wrapped she immediately fell asleep.  This was our routine every evening and it was a totally life saver for me and my sweet baby.

What does babywearing mean to you? Babywearing carries so many different meanings for me.  It means knowing my baby is safe, comfortable and comforted.   It means still being able to be productive while not having to jeopardize any of my baby bonding time.  It also means being able to include my baby/toddler in activities I love that they might not otherwise get to be a part of.  My favorite time to wear is when we are outside of the house allowing my small children to be apart of our adventures.  Babywearing also means being able to keep up with my older child helping her grow and explore while still getting to cherish every minute with my baby.

Stella - Love in Motion - Babywearing Photography

I absolutely love how Jessica lit up when she put her son in her wrap. Her smile widened and her stance grew soft with the embrace. Sometimes you can just see the love radiating from a person; Jessica simply glowed.

How did you get into babywearing? I found babywearing on my own. I worked at the library and the Treasure Coast Babywearers (TCBW) group used to meet there. I never went to a meeting, but I became interested and joined the Facebook group. From there, I bought a Seven Sling and a Moby which I hardly used at all. My now friend Laura works with my husband and she is a leader of TCBW and being friends with her has expanded my knowledge and how often I wear my children.

What does babywearing mean to you? Babywearing means mobility and the ability to keep up with my toddler. It's convenience at the store, the mall, walks with my family and the dog, festivals without the bulky stroller, and walk in the surf at the beach. It's mobile love and lets me be close to my children.

What aspects of Wrapsody wraps do you like the most? I love how thin my Wrapsody wrap is. Especially since we live in Florida! Thin and breathable is key and that is why I specifically chose to purchase my Stella. I wanted an outside-useable wrap and a wrap I chose for looks. Stella happens to fall into both of those categories.
