As a babywearing mom and connected parent, you can easily homeschool kids. Let me explain:
Any good mom is homeschooling before she sends her kids to school, whether she has thought about it that way or not.
You are speaking to, singing to, and playing with your baby.
You are exposing them to colors and shapes and sounds and textures. ‘
You take them on walks and to parks, and shopping and the zoo.
You spend time at the library reading, or pulling books off shelves, or doing baby/toddler library activities.
You point out birds and airplanes overhead. You take them to the beach and help them put their toes in the sand, and in the water.
They get older. You teach them to look both ways and hold your hand before crossing the street.
You still take them to the zoo and the park and the beach and the store. You show them how to choose apples that aren’t bruised. You teach them the names of all the different animals and where in the world they are from.
You read more books. You play hide and seek. You get them art supplies and do crafts or puzzles together. You bake cookies.
All of that is homeschooling.
It is age appropriate exploration. It is child led pursuits and a deepening understanding of the world.
If you do some of those things with your little kid, I can help show you how you can easily homeschool kids by continuing to do these kinds of things as your child gets older year by year and end up with a well educated child who hasn’t had their love of learning dulled and is set up to be able to follow their own dreams as an adult.

There’s plenty of information about wrapping. So much, in fact, that it may be hard for the woven wrap newbie to know where to start. Especially with the specialized wrap lingo. OMG, have you seen the wrap lingo???
The distinctive look of Poppins Carry makes it a favorite for pretty wrap photo shoots, while the double layer of support over baby and the ability to pop baby in and out of it without untying make it a convenient choice for an easy carry on the front or hip.
This is a great way to have a fast poppable carry but with more support so you stay comfortable in this single shoulder carry than you would with a ring sling.
Because it’s so pretty, the “Poppins Finish” is often incorporated into other carries as well:
All my exclusive Girasol wraps – and all of the wraps that Girasol makes – are fair trade items and their manufacture supports amazing skilled artisans.
Here’s what Girasol says about their production with partners in Guatemala:
“GIRASOL stands for more than 30 years of experience in fair trade trade with partners in Guatemala and Mexico. This means that our relations are based on dependable terms of business. The most important part is that we pay our partners always in advance and that they can count on an assured income – also in difficult times.
“Furthermore, it is important to us that above all our partners in Guatemala where an intricate net of people is involved in the production of or wraps and carriers are able to work as independently as possible and are included in all questions regarding the production. Hence we try, for example, to do without plastic parts for the MySol as far as possible parts since these cannot be procured in Guatemala.” Read More

Babywearing Science – If you are curious about wearing your baby, now is the perfect time to get educated on the topic. You see, the first week of October is a nine-day babywearing celebration, mothers from all over the world are taking the time to advocate for the use of slings, wraps, and carriers.
While anecdotal evidence about the practical benefits of wearing babies is both abundant and accessible, it can feel like a challenge to unearth studies that provide hard facts as to whether or not babywearing offers any developmental or health advantages.
As it turns out, though, there is plenty of evidence! You just need to know where to look and be prepared to go beyond the limited number of specific babywearing studies. In actual fact, there are plenty of scientific studies that measure the effects (on mothers and babies) of things like touch stimulation, close physical contact, holding infants upright, and skin-to-skin contact – all things that are naturally promoted when babywearing.
