Update: 27 months, 28 lbs and still wearing him daily. Still his safe place, still calms and comforts him, still a necessary parenting tool. I’m confident that I will never regret a single one of these moments. Are you still wearing a toddler? I’d love to hear your toddlerwearing experiences! #littlepoppetalnwick  #toddlerwearing  #kangaroolife 

“And perhaps what made her beautiful was not her appearance or what she achieved, but in her love and in her courage, and her audacity to believe: no matter the darkness around her, light ran wild within her, and that was the way she came alive, and it showed up in everything.”

🌻 We decided to spontaneously climb a peak while wearing a toddler, carrying a turtle bag full of lunch, and in very unsuitable shoes 😅 . The second photo is me scrambling down on my butt while breastfeeding 👶🏻. All in all, a kind of irresponsible idea, and I probably would have said no if I'd risk assessed properly ⛑️ but the Peak District is stunning, and I'm glad we got to see it from high up 😌. . Has anyone used a hiking baby backpack thing? 🎒 We're going to use one in the Dolomites 🏞️ and can't wait to try it out! . @finisterreuk  #finisterre  #gifted  #whomademyclothes 

🌻 2016 vs 2019 👀 Liquid eyeliner used to be my thing... Now the only liquid I seem to come into contact with is the pee down my t-shirt 😅 . I was just looking through my camera roll and came across both of these, and chuckled at the life changes over the past couple of years 🙈 How long till we have a potty-trained child, please? 😬 . Nappy-free time is great for letting babies' skin breathe 🍑 but occasionally you might get soaked. This week it's happened through my trousers, on our bed, and ON MY SLEEP MASK 😑 . . I have no idea when parents usually begin the Elimination Communication method (I heard it's better to start earlier, missed that one!) 🚽 . Has anyone tried Elimination Communication? Any tips or tricks? 🙏 . #pottytraining  #eliminationcommunication  #rookiemama 

🌻 I've finally learned to assertively ask "Is anyone able to give up their seat, please?" when everyone is avoiding eye contact on the tube, like you can't see this large baby strapped to her mother who's too short to reach the hand rail without tiptoeing 😂 . I used to feel so bad, just in case 12 out of the 12 people sat in the carriage have invisible illnesses/are inconspicuously pregnant/have hidden injuries 🤕, but after so many of these situations, I figured the worst that can happen is they say no 🤷🏻‍♀️ . I'd say more often than not (in London), someone does give up their seat - but it sometimes takes 3-4 stops to happen. 🚇 . Parents & caregivers - what do you do? Do you ask for a seat? 👋 Put up with it and sweat and wobble? 😪 . #tfl  #londonunderground  #babyonboard 

Salty air + baby snuggles are good for the soul. ☼⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I also just want to say thank you to everyone for the thoughtful + encouraging messages on my last few posts. It meant so much to me. Each and every one. ☼⁣⁣

Beautiful day exploring our little town! This garden center was absolutely gorgeous and now I’m ready to go buy all the outdoor plants 🤩 I’m so glad to be a #partner  with @healthade  Kombucha because it is absolutely the best (and healthiest) way to quench my thirst while chasing kiddos and hopping around town! Hubs knows every time I go to @target  I come home with at least 5 😆🙌🏼 thank you @statusphere  for including this amazing brand in this month’s box! . . . . . . . #followyourgut  #ihearthealthade  #joinstatus  #littlepoppet  #littlepoppetemilia  #wearallthebabies  #holdthemclose  #closeenoughtokiss  #letthembelittle 

Putting baby in the sling because it’s his happy place✨

Have you noticed that your baby will often only settle in your arms, as you rock them gently? There is a very good reason for this: it is biological and entirely normal behaviour as a baby transitions from womb to world. The contrasts between life inside and in the world are huge and the reassurance of loving arms is vital. Understanding the fourth trimester of a child’s life and how to be responsive is key to building a happy brain and a confident, securely attached child. Don’t be afraid to hold and rock your baby. You belong together. #carryingmatters  #buildahappybrain  #fourthtrimester  #connection  #keepthemclose  #connectionmatters  #carrythecuddle  #buildabetterfuture  #4thtrimester  #holdyourbaby  #babywearingmatters  #babywearingforthewin  #wearallthebabies  #closeenoughtokiss  #infantmentalhealth  #mentalwellness  #perinatalmentalhealth  #mumssupportingmums  #responsiveparenting  #carryingisconnection  #babywearinglove  #babywearingeducator

Yesterday was #nationaldinosaurday  so we celebrated with sensory! Milo is loving his new sensory table as he’s just tall enough to reach in and play. So today we’re raiding the pantry to create new sensory bins for the weekend: any suggestions?

Oh Will, you absolute babe. Hats off to this man who allows me to follow whatever wild and whimsical dreams that pop into my head. For supporting me no matter what and allowing me to always believe in myself. It feels good to always be chasing dreams.

My plan was to try to carry both today. Big brother on my back in the Wompat tester and Isobel on my front in this rented wrap from @naroteket.  He had a different plan and demanded the stroller 🙄 We didn't fit on the bus because of two prams already on it and had to wait 20 minutes for the next bus 😭 Happy at least for the cool wrap ❤️ #näroteket  #ringslingsbyclaire  #ringslingsbyclaireflint  #babywearing  #babywearingforthewin  #closeenoughtokiss  #keepthemclose  #carryallthebabies  #sjalbebis  #bäranära  #bäraärkärlek  #wrapsize1  #size1wovenwrap 

Forward facing is great for out and about, however, at Kanga we don’t recommend it as it doesn’t follow the TICKS standards of Babywearing.

#SlingDrive  at #TheWrapShow ! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We're excited to announce that we'll be collecting slings for the @magpieprojectuk  on 1 June. This East London charity works with homeless and near homeless women with small children. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To donate: bring any useable wraps, stretchies, ring slings, meh dais, or ergonomic structured carriers along. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ More on The Magpie Project: We can’t solve the housing crisis, but we believe in making mums and children’s lives better during their time in temporary accommodation.  We provide practical support and advice to mothers and children under five in temporary or insecure accommodation in Newham. We believe all children have a right to a secure, safe place to play, healthy food, engaged parents, and access support no matter what their family circumstances. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The team will have a table in the foyer and will be happy to chat about their work. A few mums will also be at the show! You can read more about why slings in our blog, link in bio. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thanks in advance! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thewrapshow  #babywearing  #babycarriers  #babiesloveups  #wovenwraps  #carrythemclose  #wearallthebabies  #babywearingmama  #babywearingofinstagram  #toddlerwearing  #wearallthetoddlers  #carryingisnormal  #wrapnap  #wovenwraplove  #frontwrapcrosscarry  #closeenoughtokiss  #toddlerlife  #babywrap  #parenthood  #London

I remember looking at this photo and cringing at how awful a job I thought I’d done with wearing Elise. She was 5 weeks and 6 days old. We’d taken two trains and a shuttle bus to get to Naidex, Europe’s largest disability convention. Looking back, I’m not sure if I was brave or stupid for doing that journey alone, as a wheelchair user with a newborn. It’s nice to be able to look back and see that actually, I’d done well and it was normal, healthy changes in my brains chemistry making me particularly aware of keeping Elise safe. A year on, and I’m proud of this photo, the new Mum I was and the woman I am now. Here’s to lots more babywearing adventures. 👶🏻 [Image description: A selfie of two white women sitting in their wheelchairs. On the Left is Jo, a woman with long brown hair. She is wearing glasses with red lenses a multicoloured dress and a black jacket. On the right is Tania, a woman with long brown hair. She is wearing glasses with dark green lenses, a black hat and a black, faux leather jacket. Tania is wearing Elise, a newborn baby, in a grey @closeparent  Caboo. The image has a border around it, which consists of a larger, lighter, blurry version of the main photo. To the left of the image are the words ‘Physical changes in a new Mum’s brain.’ Below the image is the text ‘New Mum’ Brain.]

El fular elástico es el más conocido porque es relativamente fácil de poner con el nudo preanudado. Se trata de hacer un nudo primero y una vez anudado poner al bebé dentro. Al ser una tela elástica, es fácil de colocar ya que la tela se estira y se adapta fácilmente. Es el nudo más usado! Y cualquiera puede hacerlo pero es importante que quede bien tensado y seguir ciertas indicaciones para una posición ergonómica y segura. . . 🖥 www.littlemiss.es 📷 @littlemiss_bcn  👶🏻 @bellabailabella  . . . .

✨my first stash shot ✨ 😍 the obsession continues! The other day my mom asked if I was getting paid to take pics wearing my Wildbirds, I laughed and told her I WISH 😂🤪 but in all seriousness, I just love this brand so much I plan on making sure my friends have access to one (even if they have to borrow mine) So for now they’re folded until I can hang and display them really pretty... I feel like I’m missing a mustard or honey yellow and maybe a neutral or crazy design, but my husband wouldn’t agree 🙃💛 • if you’re new to slinging or interested in it, I 1000% recommend the modal fabric especially for new mamas with newborns.

Cafes Aside from the bonding and the obvious benefits that carrying brings for me and my children, it also allowed me to go to a lot of cafes and restaurants. Eating out is a large part of my life, I grew up in pubs and restaurants. I had my first job as a Kitchen Porter at 15 and I was learning how to pull pints not long after. I slowly made my way up from glass collector to general manager and everything in between. So being able to eat out with the babies was important to me. At three days old, eating out was one of the first things we did with Cass and with the help of slings we have continued to do so. I can safely say that going for a coffee is one of Cass’s favourite things to do.

We said bye bye to our woven labels and replaced them with these sweet and simple care tags. We’re looking at alternatives to reduce waste and to get rid of any paper trails including our care cards. They’re so small and will be hidden in the seams behind the rings so you won’t have to worry about any obvious tags on our slings! 🏷🌿🌻

It’s a beautiful day to sling and Sullivan’s Bay fits right in with 75 and sunny 😍😍 #Repost  @todayinursed  with @get_repost  ・・・ Lots of snuggles today. #ColumbusBWing  #ComfyJoeyLife 

"Let them be little cause they're only that way for a while. Give them hope, give them praise, give them love every day. Let them cry, let them giggle, let them sleep in the middle. Oh just let them be little."

I know I share a lot about my @wildbird  slings, but there's a reason why... They have been one of my favorite things about being a momma. I was able to snuggle my newborn close while figuring out postpartum life. I can walk around the grocery store without worrying about leaving my baby in the cart (or you know... falling over when I whip that sucker around a corner - oops). I can get James to nap just about anywhere, as long as I have a sling and his paci - from church to playdates to the splash pad, they are a LIFESAVER when I'm in a pinch and baby needs to nap. I can cook dinner, clean the house and work out, even when all James wants is to be held. I feel like a rockstar mom when I can use both hands AND look cool while slinging my baby. And best of all? James absolutely loves it too. My heart melts when I see him smile and his face light up when I get a sling out. He instantly snuggles in and lays his head on my chest. Y'all... it doesn't get sweeter than that! So yes, I am a bit obsessed with my slings, but for good reason. Plus, they're pretty and double as decoration, so win, win, win in my book!

To get in the camping mood, I tried on my Nook encompass. It isn't my favorite for front wearing...we will have to see if I end up taking this or a wrap and ring sling into the woods. .. She is a little too small for the Nook even with her legs over the straps (I changed it after this pic). We wore for about 1.5 hrs and I constantly had to check her head and chin position and adjust her. I think I will be using it more next summer as opposed to this one. .. #babywearing  #newborn  #wovenwraps  #Oscha  #Oschaslings  #dailyoscha  #dailywrapping  #momlife  #selfies  #momoffour  #attachmentparenting  #closeenoughtokiss  #selfies  #SSC

"I love you up to the moon," said Little Nutbrown Hare. . "Oh, that's far," said Big Nutbrown Hare. "That is very, very far." Big Nutbrown Hare settled Little Nutbrown Hare into his bed of leaves. . He leaned over and kissed him goodnight. Then he lay down close by and whispered with a smile, "I love you to the moon and back." . . #babywearing  #icarryyoualways  #bärabarn  #selbarn  #integra  #allaboutsjala  #sjala  #closeenoughtokiss  #ourbabywearingdays 

We are leaving for vacation this coming Saturday (Jai is staying home with Grandma and Auntie) and we spent the weekend getting organized and starting to pack. Lists for clothes, lists for pool/beach, lists for Jai (diaper laundry, snack ideas, etc).. lists coming out of our ears. • • I am definitely looking forward to a week with just my wife - sunshine, cocktails, dancing, not sharing our bed with a 2 year old - but I’m really going to miss wearing Jai while I’m gone. Safe to say I’m shoving my toddler in a carrier extra this week to soak in all the snuggles I’ll miss while I’m away. • • What do you miss most about your kids when you are away from them?

Wiggling a leggy toddler into a ring sling is a skill daddy has definitely mastered! 😆 I know I often wax lyrical about ring slings but this is why. It spent most of the day neatly folded up in my bag but when walking round the big city got a bit much, it's quick and easy to use. It was great to see so many sling users out and about in Edinburgh today. Anyone else play spot the sling on a day out? #ringslinglove  #oschaslings  #babywearingdaddy  . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #ringslings  #oscharingsling  #oscha  #whydadsbabywear  #babywearingdad  #wearallthetoddlers  #carryallthetoddlers  #toddlerwearing  #ourbabywearingdays  #brilliantbabywearingbusiness  #slingadventures  #slingforthewin  #carrymeround  #carrythem  #carryingisnormal  #carryingmatters  #keepthemclose  #keepcalmandcarrythem  #holdthemclose  #carryingconnects  #carrythemclose  #closeenoughtokiss  #wearthem  #babywearersofinstagram  #lovebabywearing  #babywearingrocks

Carrying is empowering….we all know how amazing it feels when our hugs can soothe an upset child, or help an overtired baby to finally sleep. But parenting rarely involves doing one thing at a time, and it can sometimes feel overwhelming if you’re having to juggle your baby’s needs with competing priorities. If you’ve a sling or carrier to hand, you can give those hugs pretty much wherever you are, whatever you are doing, whoever else you also need to look after (including yourself). Carrying helps you to keep all those balls in the air, to feel that you can cope, and that really can make you feel amazing. #babyonborders  #carryingmakesadifference  #earlymomentsmatter  . . . . . . . .. #buildahappybrain  #connectionmatters  #responsiveparenting  #itwillbeworthit  #scottishbordersfamilies  #scottishbordersbabies  #scottishborders  #scottishbabybox  #scottishbabyboxsling  #carrythem  #carryingisnormal  #carryingmatters  #keepthemclose  #keepcalmandcarrythem  #holdthemclose  #carryingconnects  #carrythemclose  #closeenoughtokiss  #slingforthewin  #slingingandwinning  #scottishbabywearing  #scottishbabywearers  #scottishbabywearersofinstagram  #slingmagic
