Our booboo is your YIPPEEEE SKIPPEEE! Natibaby wove our exclusive wrap incorrectly – UH OH!!! You’ve Got a Friend was inspired by the emblems, symbols and colors of the Toy Story cast; this set of wraps has the emblems and the symbols alright but some of the colors are wrong. We asked Nati to send these wraps to us even though they are not perfect because we know how much the PAXlovers wanted more of these! We just know that you can find a way to put these wraps to good use!Available right now in very limited amounts is You’ve Got a Friend blooper. See in this picture an example of how YGaF blooper compares to the original; these are not second quality wraps, simply miscolored, as if the Pixar animated a few shades differently than expected. Starting at $105, these are bargain prices for a perfectly good 100% woven wrap! Shopping begins at 3 pm California time tomorrow, Wednesday June 1st!
**There is no limit on quantity purchased, but please notice the NO RETURNS box on this order! THANK YOU!
*graphic birth story*
Yesterday morning I finished Blaise’s pregnancy with the intense birth of my placenta.
What I endured last Saturday in San Diego was the birthing of our baby’s sac and cord. It was deflated and withered just like the ultrasound had shown, but I had assumed that the large blood clots and small bits of tissue that came out that day as well was all the placenta we would be able to see since development stopped so many weeks earlier. May 21 will be considered to be Blaise’s birthday since her sac was born the day of May’s Blue Moon.
After the PAXplaydate on May 25, I came home in a lot of pain but chalked it up to having had too much activity. Within a few hours I realized that this pain was not just cramping but very real, very intense birthing contractions about 4 minutes apart and spiking with gushes of blood. I let the PAXmoms know I wouldn’t be able to continue working that night, and Aaron helped me out of my bed into the bathroom because I was losing so much blood. For the next 4 hours I labored; this was one of my most challenging births physically, and definitely my hardest mentally, not knowing what exactly to expect and then also understanding that at the end of all the pain, I would not have a precious baby to hold and “make it all better!” Aaron called our midwife and doula at around 2 in the morning, but we ended up having an unassisted home birth of the placenta at 2:30. It seemed as though the placenta continued to grow even when our baby hadn’t been, so it was quite sizable at 14 weeks 6 days old. Our midwife was very concerned about the amount of blood I had lost and afterwards when I was dizzy and feeling nauseous, we decided that “bedrest” through the weekend would be best. Replenishing my body with iron rich foods would help build back up my platelets, so here I am back in bed, processing my full birth experience and grieving the baby that will never be here in my arms.
A wonderful local friend is photographing our placenta and making a print to frame, then it will be buried alongside Blaise’s sac and cord under our beautiful magnolia tree. Over the last few weeks, you have all shown us so much love and support; I appreciate it more than you know. It has been extremely healing for me to be able to share Blaise’s short but powerful life with you, and hearing your lost babies’ stories has helped too! Thank you, friends; much love to each of you as I recover from being ?#?pregnantnotpregnant? <3

Kimberly and her husband Shiloh are the creators of Nil Organic Tea.
As a new mom, Kimberly’s tea-time was also her me-time; but as a breastfeeding mother, she was concerned about the research she had done in regards to the chemicals and artificial ingredients found in most gourmet tea blends. She was determined to keep her me-time, so she began to hand-blend her own teas using all organic, Fair Trade ingredients. They have now created 18 amazing blends, including a carefully crafted line of three special pregnancy blends- Budding Belly for early pregnancy, MaterniTea for late pregnancy, and The Breast Friend for postpartum lactation support. paxbaby
