Hello, my name is Samantha and I am addicted to babywearing. I don't even know how it ended up like this! Searching swap sites all night long looking for my dream wrap, youtubing videos for new carriers to try, and debating in my head all day about Tula vs. Ergo! All this started with not wanting to be one of those annoying moms with a giant stroller taking up half the sidewalk. I had no idea the world of babywearing would be so engulfing!
Before I got into babywearing, I had seen of Baby Bjorns and other narrow base carriers. I heard they are a pain to get on and can hurt your back after a while. So, I didn't think too much of them. Then one day on Pinterest I saw a pin about how babywearing places your baby's spine and legs in a good position. I did more research and decided to get a carrier for Jack.
|3 days old.I hated the carrier, but loved wearing him.|
|So much fabric!|
|It was love at first wrap.|
|He kept turning his head out of the sun every walk.|
So I did some research on babywearing in the summer and discovered that woven wraps are a lot lighter. I found BabyWearing International Bay Area website and saw my local meeting was the next day! One of the leaders let me try her woven wrap and I instantly fell in love! It was light and cool. Also less stretchy so Jack felt very secure against me. And it was so beautiful! My babywearing friend phrased it best, " We show our children beautiful arts, why not wrap them in it?"
|My first love. This will be my legacy wrap.|

|Our first time wrapping on our own. FWCC.|
|Took me a bit to get the shoulder flip on a kangaroo carry.|
|Rebozo hip carry to pick pumpkins.|
|Back Wrap Cross Carry is better with rainbows!|
|"I don't know why you keep throwing me|
on your back, but it's sure if fun!"
|First time he was on my back, just scooted the hip rebozo back.|
|My first pre-tied Half Jordan's Back Carry, I was SO happy.|
|I was SO excited to have a good ruck, I took this picture |
leaving the meeting right in the middle of Sport Basement!
|Took this about a week ago, he was two seconds|
from a meltdown and I rucked him up quickly.
|There was no room to wrap him in the busy parking |
lot at the Social Security Office, so we did a pre-tie.
