Babywearing Breastfeeding Tip #1

For successful babywearing breastfeeding, first establish a successful breastfeeding relationship. Learning to nurse in your carrier is a complication that need not be added until you and your baby have found a comfortable and workable breastfeeding routine.

Kangaroo Carry is a wonderful carry for a newborn, older baby, or toddler and it can be done with a short or long wrap. Kangaroo can usually be done with a wrap two sizes shorter than the wrap length you need for full length carries like Front Wrap Cross Carry (FWCC). We call this Base – 2.

Guest Post by Kita Wolfe for Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month
When asked about our current pregnancy and why we call her our rainbow baby, I can’t help but wish that I could just walk away sometimes.

A simple “we lost babies before her, she’s our rainbow after the storm!”, is usually how I leave it until they ask more questions.
