I know you love wrapping your baby: the closeness, the connection, and the convenience! AND it’s so pretty! And mastering the different wrap carries is fun and makes you feel a sense of accomplishment!
Naturally, you want to share this amazingness with EVERYBODY. But does everybody want to hear? Are you just turning everybody off of babywearing with your enthusiasm?
Some tips for SHARING YOUR LOVE OF BABYWEARING (without being obnoxious):
AVOID posting excessive studies, articles, or other “proofs” about how great babywearing or wrapping are.
INSTEAD talk about the things you’ve been able to do comfortably and easily thanks to a baby carrier:
AVOID looking like a looney when you suggest that a mom might want to wear her baby AND her 40 lb toddler at the same time. Leave tandem wearing discussions between expert babywearers and keep it tame for the general public.
INSTEAD mention how wrapping your newborn made it so much easier to care for your toddler:
AVOID telling your newly pregnant friend that she’s going to prefer a baby carrier to a bucket seat. Positioning yourself in opposition to what she’s always seen and expected just weakens your credibility.
INSTEAD mention that you personally preferred a wrap because the seat was heavy:
Share super cool wrapping related things when you come across them like this babywearing orchestra:
And mostly, just share about your family having fun like everyone else does on Facebook, and if wrapping is a part of your life, it will show up in your pictures and stories without having to force it.
