Babywearing, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways…

When you welcome a child into your life, Valentine’s Day tends to take on a whole new meaning. Before kids, it seems to be an exclusive “couples” celebration – more of a romantic holiday.  Add baby and children, and Valentine’s Day turns into a family celebration! (Check out last year’s blog about Valentine’s Day and the Welcomed Third Wheel).

Babywearing is a wonderful practice that can help create more love in our families and deepen the connection with our children. So, in honor of babywearing, shall we profess our love?

I love lists. I truly and seriously LOVE them! This year, I worked with some parents and caregivers to build a nice loooooooooong list of all the reasons why we as babywearers are in love with babywearing.
