*new* Beco give away

For all of you who wanted to participate in the Beco Gemini video contest, but weren’t able to get your paws on a Beco to use, this contest is FOR YOU!  Submit a video telling us why you need a Beco Baby Carrier or why a Beco Butterfly would be better than the carrier you already have – keep it clean, girls, no sling bashing, please!

Upload your video to YouTube with your title being set up like this:

Beco Baby Carrier, ___ ____  needs a Butterfly!

So Beco’s leading lady’s entry would be:

Beco Baby Carrier, Gabby Caperon needs a Butterfly!

Don’t forget to link your video to the Discussion Group at the Beco FaceBook page!

Good luck, and can’t wait to hear why YOU need a Beco!

Vintage Babywearing

I’m so confused by comments about babywearing being hip, new, and a great invention! Us BWing parents know that babywearing is actually a very old concept and dates back 100s of years! Granted, we babywear with more style and pizazz now, but my dad carried baby me in a brown cord Snugli with an internal insert similar to the one that the Beco Butterfly features now!
In my sea of moving boxes and half unpacked furniture, I can’t find my vintage babywearing photographs, but here is a picture of my friend Karina (the model in the official Alice Beco picture!) being carried in a SPOC (simple piece of cloth) by her big sister, Heidi! SO CUTE!

I haven’t been to the San Diego Wild Animal Park since I was 8 years old. It seemed huge back then, and WOW, when we took the littlies there last weekend, it was STILL huge! I’m not usually a fan of zoos, but I do appreciate the amount of space that these animals had to call their own. My favorite part was coming over a hill and seeing some giraffes and a rhino hanging out like they were on safari! The kids loved it, and we’re so grateful to my brother who hooked us up with annual passes so we can go again – soon!

My vintage Beco 4th Generation has been waiting to be taken to a zoo and I made sure to have my sweet husband take lotsa babywearing pix of us! The batteries died after the first 20 minutes, so we’ll be sure to take more pictures next time!

PAXbaby give away – Adorn Nursing Necklace

The other day, I posted my Beco Butterfly “Priceless” advertisement.  Since then, I have been inundated with comments about the ad, especially about the nursing necklace that I featured!

Kelly at Adorn on Etsy is the creative genius behind these beautiful necklaces designed to give baby something to hold onto while nursing or babywearing!  I can’t tell you how often I have had my hair pulled by my sweet little fella as he rides in my baby carrier or while I’m nursing him.  But these adjustable necklaces solve the problem!  Kelly recommended to me that I wear the pendant in front while breastfeeding, and then swing it around to the back of my neck when Baby #5 is snuggling on my back!

*It’s working great, and I’m so thankful to my friend for my early birthday present that I wanted to share 1 with you so you can be free from the hair pulling pain as well!*

Kelly makes nursing necklaces with vintage beads & interesting shapes for baby to explore tactically, and is creating a line of necklaces to match perfectly with my favorite baby carriers, the Beco Butterfly II and soon the Beco Gemini also!  PAXbaby is gifting a *custom* nursing necklace to one lucky PAXbaby fan, but for those of you who want to drop a little idea to your husband, Kelly’s Etsy shop is Adorn, and she has necklaces in stock now.  Hint, hint, Mother’s Day is right around the corner!

Beco Baby Carrier Meaghan Gibbons

4 month old Olive visited the Montreal Botanical Gardens to see the butterfly exhibit  – which is so appropriate since the baby carrier that Meaghan is wearing is a Beco Butterfly II!  Meaghan is hoping to win a new Beco Gemini carrier to add to her babywearing collection.
