The summer sun is finally peeking through the clouds, so let's talk summer babywearing! Particularly, babywearing at the pool, beach and waterpark!
These places are great for babywearing, so you can splash around with your little one and tend to your older children while keeping your baby close.
Several brands make baby carriers that are intended for water use.
These carriers do not absorb water, so they can get drenched without weighing you down, they dry fast and they're made from synthetic fibres that resist breaking down when exposed to chlorine. Many are also made from fabrics that will protect your and your little one from the sun.Read More
Fisher-Price Rock 'n Play infant sleepers are portable, semi-reclining cradles that rock and lull babies into a peaceful sleep. They can also help babies with reflux, who are most comfortable when being held upright or lying on an incline. The only problem? These "sleepers" have never been approved for overnight sleep, despite many using them for this purpose. And now that they've been pulled from the market over safety concerns, they're no longer an option for daytime naps either.
For nighttime sleep, the safest place for babies under a year to sleep is on a firm, flat surface, free of any pillows, blankets or toys, ideally in their parent's bedroom. Many babies, however, just don't find those sleeping arrangements up to their satisfaction and will let you know -- loudly and at 3am!
Read on for my top tips for helping your baby sleep without the help of the Rock n’ PlayRead More
Among all the other benefits of babywearing for you and your little one, one of the most practical benefits is that it allows you to hold your baby close while keeping your hands free. But let's be honest, you can't get as much done with a baby strapped to your chest as you can with a baby NOT strapped to your chest. Especially as your baby gets bigger and more curious to see the world, front carrying can inhibit your range of motion almost as much as carrying baby in arms.
But babies want to be held and sh*t needs to get done, so what's a loving but busy mama to do? Get that baby onto your back!Read More
