Babywearing for Sensory Issues

I discovered babywearing 15 years ago. As a first time parent with a 6 month old and like many first time parents and caregivers, I often found myself unsure if I was doing everything right. When my baby got sick for the first time, a very sweet friend taught me to use a woven wrap […]

Wrapped in Cloth – The (almost) Definitive Guide to Wrapping

Wrapping. Wrapping eluded me in my babywearing career for a VERY long time. With my first kid almost 9 years ago, we could have easily made one of those parody, viral wrapping videos currently floating around Facebook. Only it wouldn’t have been a parody. While we did eventually master front wrapping, back wrapping largely confounded […]
