Sexiest Dads Alive?

I think these babywearing, dancing dads might just be the very best eye candy I’ve ever come across. Babywearing. Dancing. Choreography. Confidence. Yup, this is awesome. GroovaRoo, a San Diego-based dance studio, has been making waves with videos of their classes where parents dance while babywearing. The classes aren’t just for moms, either. As you can see in the video above, dads have gotten in on the action, too. Is this the next new fitness craze? I don’t know. But {Read More}

Is Your Baby Carrier Hip Healthy?

Safe babywearing is very important to me, so I’m excited to share this guest post from Dr. Charles Price, Pediatric Orthopedist, Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children and Director of The International Hip Dysplasia Institute. He helps explain why “crotch danglers” can be harmful to an infants hip development. The International Hip Dysplasia Institute was established to promote early diagnosis and prevention of  hip dysplasia, the most common abnormality in newborn babies.  Hip dysplasia requires treatment in approximately 2-3/1000 newborns who {Read More}

Random Awesome Chicago Family

Over the weekend, I was in Chicago for the #BBSummit12 blogging conference. While heading to the after party, Sadie and I got a bit mixed up with our directions, but it was TOTALLY worth it because we ran into this cool family. I was so excited to see the guys babywearing while out with their wives, I asked them if I could take a picture and post it on my blog. (I also gave them one of my business cards {Read More}

Babywearing Giveaway: Onya Baby Outback

I may or may not have a bit of a baby carrier addiction. When my new Onya Outback baby carrier arrived in the mail, Jason asked, incredulously, “Just how many carriers do you need?!” My response: “All of them.” Which I think is totally reasonable. I use my carriers all the time –

Boba Makes Babywearing Easy

I love babywearing Levi in my Boba. Well, Bobas, actually, since I have two. Yes, I like them that much. This is my newest addition to my babywearing closet – the 3G Boba in Lila print. As you can see, Levi loves it as much as I do. In fact, I love it so much that even though I don’t really need a diaper bag, I decided I just HAD to order the matching Boba Pack. I couldn’t resist. It {Read More}

A Boy And A Beco Baby Carrier (Giveaway)

Even though my little boy is almost 16 months old, he still loves to be worn in a baby carrier. For me, it’s a no-brainer. Wearing Levi means I don’t have to chase him around, plus it allows me to have my hands free. He’s perfectly content to chill and ride around kangaroo style while I’m out running errands or walking the dogs.

I Hate Strollers

I admit it. I hate strollers. Every time I see a sea of strollers parked somewhere, I shudder. Image courtesy of Steffany813 It’s not because I don’t think they’re useful – they are. Levi loves it when my dad takes him for a walk around the neighborhood in his stroller. Jason liked having it at the State Fair this year so he had someplace to hold all the Sweet Martha’s cookies we bought to bring home. For me, though, I {Read More}

Contest Closed: Red Charlotte #Babywearing Sucking Pads or Stuff Sack

We’re big fans of babywearing at our house. Huge. In fact, I’m not entirely sure when we last used the stroller. Both Jason and I prefer wearing Levi in a carrier wherever we go – grocery store, out walking the dogs, trips to the zoo, etc… I own lots of baby carriers, but right now our favorite style is the soft structure carrier. Levi is still perfectly content to be carried inward facing on the front. I absolutely love leaning {Read More}
