Babywearing | 18 Things Babywearing Helped Me Do This Past Year

September 22, 2016

If you follow me on any of my social media accounts, or read my blog often, you know two things about me. 1. I love hats, and 2., I am obsessed with babywearing. Like. obsessed. I honestly don't know where I would be, or what kind of mother I would be if I didn't have my wraps or carriers. 

The truth is, babywearing has left an imprint on my soul. It's an ethereal experience that has shaped who I am as a woman and mother. It's forever changed me, and for that I am so, so thankful.

Not only has babywearing bettered my experiences with motherhood, but it's also allowed me to do SO much more than I ever thought I could do with a child. If you don't believe me, here are eighteen amazing things babywearing has helped me do in the past year.

1. Help me get my baby to sleep when she was restless/teething/didn't want to sleep alone.

2. Tackle the airport and traveling without a stroller.

3. Go to a Sufjan Stevens concert.

4. Have photos taken for my blog (several times, actually).

5. Go on daily walks in the park, sans stroller, always.

6. Keep my baby near me. Always.

7. Take a trip to the beach with only the things you see in my hands!

8. Wrangle a busy toddler (literally no matter where I go).

9. Visit an orange grove to pick oranges!

10. Go on a mall shopping date with my grandma!

11. Comfort my babe when she wasn't feeling well.

12. Get lots of house cleaning done.

13. Watch my husband form his own bond with our daughter.

14. Tackle Ikea + the grocery store + everywhere else without having to chase my little one or set her in a cart!

15. Breastfeed on the go! (This is a total game-changer you guys).

16. Explore the five-star resort on our vacation!

17. Form a necessary attachment with my baby that will help her succeed now and later in life.

18. Make tons of new mom friends and friends for G to play with!

In twenty years, when I think back on my life and reflect on motherhood, there will be one thing (other than memories of my little babes, of course) that will stand out to me most, and that is wearing my children, keeping them close.

p.s. October 5-10th is International Babywearing Week, and the anniversary of when I started regularly wearing G. Check out your local BWI (babywearing international) chapter for more info on how you can become a babywearing fan too!
