Yes, I’m a baby wearing mommy and I love it! I’ve been wearing my baby from when she was was first born till now! I greatly encourage every mommy or daddy to wear their baby! Some great benefits I’ve found from doing this is that it’s great for your little one, it reminds your baby of being in the womb from the moving and being next to mommy! Being born can naturally be stressful for your little one so keeping your baby snugly and close is great for him or her. Doing this, also is a great way to share family bonding and nurturing with Daddy! My husband loves wearing our daughter and never objects!
Baby wearing is also known to decrease crying and fussiness, as well as increase learning. I can attest to this as my little girl is one of the happiest little babies that you’ll ever meet! She is super observant and very smart…already walking at nine months! She watches everything around her. Her needs are met very quickly as well and though she likes being with mommy, she is also very independent. She’s quite a secure, settled, considerate, sociable, cooperative, adaptable, affectionate little girl
Wearing your baby gives you exercise! I lost all my pregnancy weight very quickly after my daughter was born. I did go for a five mile hike about two months after I gave birth (yes, I’m crazy). I’m going to say that wearing my child helped with that along with breastfeeding ( you can also can do this very easily in a sling).
My daughter even now that’s she’s older, loves being in the sling as you can see from my photos. I’m wearing a great sling that I won from Rockin’ Baby Sling.com. These great slings are reversible so we can coordinate with what we are wearing…lol. At least, that’s what I do. They are also easy to clean, just throw it in the wash with everything else.
These are great if you want to take a walk on the beach without your stroller. ( I forgot my sling when we went and the stroller started sinking and was incredibly hard to push…lol) You live you learn! These really are great to take anywhere and they go up to 40lbs. My daughter is only 15lbs right now so we will be using our pouch for quite a bit more time
I recommend you do your research before buying a sling as there are many types and styles to choose from!
Well, as most of you know I’ve been house hunting! I had been looking high and low on the internet only to find this wonderful treasure trove in the Sunday paper! It’s perfect in every way as we don’t have to move out of town and be farther from my husbands work, our church, or my daughter’s doctors. We have filled out an application and will probably be able to move in starting in April. We will have to purchase a Washer and Dryer… we figure Sears is best for that because of the not having to pay all of it off right away as we wouldn’t be able too. I’ll be glad not to have to dry clothes almost 3 whole times anymore with a new dryer which will cut back on our electricity bill. Oh, this duplex also has a garage which will be great for storing things like holiday, older baby things, and my craft supplies. I plan to set up a nice work station for my beading and etc out there. I’ll be relieved with my crafting supplies being out there as my daughter will be getting into more things as she’s started walking already at nine months. The second bedroom will be our home office. I don’t mind our daughter being in the same room as us. My sisters and I growing up didn’t have our own rooms till we were around 4-5 years old so that’s no biggie for us. The square footage may possibly be a little smaller but it’s got more storage areas which is a plus for sure. I’m glad to get away from the unwanted noises, the cigarette smoke, and the disgusting dog piss on my patio. I’m excited! How do you like the floor plan I created up there? LOL
