Although I’ve never considered myself fat, the message that I got as an adolescent and young adult was […]

When Action Shots make me cry OR The #NoActionShot Post

Love it or hate it, nothing shows off a carrier like an action shot. Keep your flat and stash shots, babywearers, there is NOTHING like a smiley baby snuggled up in a carrier… in action!   I LOVE action shots so much that I researched how to take the best babywearing selfie and then wrote […]
