Recently, a babywearing mama got badly burnt while carrying out an activity she would have often done with her baby strapped to her front. Things could have been much more tragic. This is a good opportunity for us to talk about babywearing and safety.
Introducing your new favourite accessory… a cooling towel! Although these handy devices have been around for a few years, many babywearers still aren’t sure what they do, how they work, or even if they’re worth it. So we thought we’d cover a few of the most frequently asked questions here!
How much do baby carriers cost... and are they really an essential baby item?
Confession… I am a little bit excited to write this wrap review. I wear my Daiesu Tatami wrap all the time, and I have a reasonable selection to choose from. But… you may or may not love this wrap the same way I do. It will depend on your wrappee, preferred carries, and favourite wrapping qualities.
Let’s cut to the chase… newborn inserts are generally best avoided for a number of reasons. Curious as to why? Read on!
Being a baby is easy, right? So why do newborn babies cry so much? Are they ungrateful? Manipulating you? Trying to make your life difficult? And why is babywearing the answer?
There are still plenty of parents (and other members of the public) who think they may be harmful to a baby’s development. So it’s time we did some mythbusting! Here are some of the top babywearing myths I’ve come across recently…
If you’re all like WTH about FWCC, FSOT, and DISO, it’s understandable, and you’re definitely not alone! But don’t worry! If you want to, you’ll be talking the talk in no time at all.
Before I really got into babywearing, I used to wonder… how do I wear my baby through (the Australian!) summer? And what about extreme cold or rain? The good news is that you can wear your baby through just about any weather or temperature! You just need to have the right tools...
If your little one cries as soon as they’re put in the carrier, there are plenty of reasons why this could be happening, and not necessarily because they hate being up!
When I first started babywearing with my newborn, I had two main thoughts: 1) What are all the different types of carrier options available to me? 2) Which one is best for me right now?
Because I was on a budget and just wanted to invest in one (hah!) I did a lot of research. While there are MANY different types of baby carriers from all over the world, six types stood out to me as the most commonly used in Australia.
When you fall down the rabbit hole, you can start to realise that there’s a lot more to woven wraps than you first thought! Not only are there different sizes, patterns, and thicknesses, but you can also buy them in many, many combinations of fibres.
So, you want to learn how to tame your beast? Got a brand new woven wrap that just isn’t quite as smooshy as it could be? You’re in the right place!
Yesterday, I did Kangatraining. Me! Okay, so this won’t seem totally crazy unless you know me personally. Allow me to elaborate…
