Austin Powers babywears!?!

Have well meaning relatives or nosy neighbor commented on your new luscious baby carrier or the number of packages arriving on your doorstep?!? Have you felt the need to say in a British accent, “It’s not mine, baby!!!” I think Austin Powers expressed exactly how we feel sometimes when we are asked to justify “needing just one more!”

austin powers meme

Instead of giving into the temptation of giving a  terrible Mike Meyers impression, try one of these phrases instead :

“I’m giving USPS a reason to stay in business” – in regards to the many packages being delivered!

“I am supporting WAHMs” – in regards to why you ordered a new carrier!

“It’s totally different” – in regards to another rainbow carrier!
“I am going to sell the other one” – in regards to a growing stash!

“I like your new hiking/ biking/ sports gear” – in regards why you deserve some new fluff too!

Try a few of these phrases on for size or use your own! If you have gotten creative with your replies, comment here so we can use it next time!

Vice Versa stocking at!



Happy September, PAXfriends! It’s hard to believe that it’s a new month already; where on earth did August go? Let’s celebrate the passage of time with an uber special stocking of especially gorgeous wraps! Here at PAXbaby, we like to have as little drama as possible, so for this stocking, we will be trying something new along with something old!

vice versa cream twill collage

Want to be eligible to purchase a Vice Versa *unicorn* wrap? How about a Vice Versa *cream*???? These beautiful purple & cream weft twill weave Girasols will be available on Wednesday!

To enter, you have until tonight at 8 pm PDT to comment on this blog post. At that time, we will randomly select the winners who will receive an exciting email with a super secret link which will be activated Wednesday at precisely 11 am PDT. You will ONLY be able to access the link and check out for a wrap if you are signed in to your account using the email address that corresponds to your blog comment.

Please note that if you have multiple accounts, now is the time to delete them so you only have one active account. We will not be able to help you with log in issues or technical difficulties on Wednesday, so get your ducks in a row today before the stocking!

Here’s the NEW information, are you ready???

The number of winners who will be contacted with the secret link WILL BE DOUBLE the number of wraps available! This is a REAL stocking, friends, so Vice Versa WILL sell out unless you get there first! PayPal will be disabled, so you’ll have to pay with a debit or credit card, and fingers will need to be fast!

Although unlikely, there is still a possibility that this wrap could oversell! In the event of an oversell, you will be promptly messaged and politely refunded with our apologies.

Our cart software is not able to hold an item until it is paid for! The wrap goes to the first PAXfriend to complete the checkout process – not the first person to cart the wrap.

Only one entry and one wrap may be purchased per household please, and GOOD LUCK!!!!!

We are in the process of transitioning to new cart software, which will help to eliminate many of the extra steps we’ve had to add to our stockings and prevent the disappointments associated with oversells and cart crashes. This process takes hundreds of hours and many months of work to complete, so we thank you for bearing with us and all the necessary fine print in the mean time!

Nurturing a love for books!

Reading with your child is a small investment with a HUGE pay off! Reading the same book over and over teaches directionality and provides comfort, & the repetition of the story leads to deeper assimilation of the content.  So the next time you are ready to pull your hair out from reading that same Sandra Boynton book “just one more time,”  just remember that you are helping your child’s vocabulary, their sense well being, and their love for literature!

Reading a book to your child can take only a few minutes, but cultivating that love of books will be wonderful later. My oldest children are 11, 9 and 7 years old now and will happily spend hours reading to themselves and to their younger siblings! Take the time to read to your child today, and tomorrow you AND your child will be so happy!

A few of our personal favorites are : If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, Policeman Small, The Hungry Caterpillar, and Make Way for Ducklings! What are your family’s top choices of young children books???

#babycate assisted in the sorting of the wrap conversion Tulas. What a helpful baby!

The first dibs will be given to special PAXfriends who have won the right to buy a WC Tula from various PAXplaydate events or oversell debacles, and then PAXbaby’s ISO Angel will be announced to spread the love of babywearing over the rest of the world! Fingers crossed for you; these are SO cute!

Tandem breastfeeding!

PAXfriend Samantha P is proud to be bringing this ray of sunshine to our day today!

Tandem breastfeeding her two children (nearly 3.5 years old and just turned 1) has been her way of giving them a “home base while they explore” the world in a safe environment! Samantha says that “it is also a big lesson in patience for all of us!”

I just love her outlook and the love for her children that you can see in her eyes <3
