The MySol is a wrap conversion Mei Tai with a fabulous fit for most babywearers! Carry your baby safely, comfortably and ergonomically from birth to toddler in front or on your back. The carrier design is based on traditional Asian baby carriers but has been adapted to modern needs with its adjustable front panel and extra carrying bags.

VV Emeibaby!

Well… I would say this is a winning combination!!! Wouldn’t you???

It is no secret around these parts that the PAXmommies are in love with the Emeibaby, but did you know why??

Not only is it a buckle carrier, but it also has the perfect fit of a woven wrap AND has the ability to grow with your baby! The first hybrid carrier of its kind, and easily the carrier that we recommend the most!

The Emeibaby is one of the TOP soft structured carriers around and here are a few of the top reasons behind that statement:
– you do not need an infant insert in order to carry a newborn
– the Emeibaby’s waist band can cinch down to 25″
– easy to use
– no long piece of fabric to juggle
– grows with your baby (or can be worn with your toddler one day, baby the next)

PLUS, we also are in LOVE with the fact that we are able to have our VERY OWN PAXexclusive Emeibabys now!!
First there was DOUBLE RAINBOW, and now… Vice VERSA!!!!

Newborn Positioning

I’ve been lucky enough to speak with many babywearers in person about the physiologic newborn position, and how to avoid putting a newborn baby into a spread squat, by keeping their knees, hips, and feet all in a near straight parallel vertical lines, with knees above bum.

Je Porte Mon Bebe has provided us with this fantastic illustration of how the physiologic newborn position looks with baby inside a wrap.

physiologic newborn position

With a baby under around 3-4 months, the position in the photo above is what you want to see in any type of carrier. It is possible to achieve this body posture in a ring sling, wrap, or mei tai, but much more difficult in a buckle carrier, which is just one of the reasons why I generally suggest that buckle carriers are best saved for after baby has more torso control and naturally assumes a squat position on his own, when picked up. This developmental milestone typically occurs around 4 months old.

Some time around 4 months, when you lift him to your body in-arms, baby will span your body, and grab onto your torso with his legs spread. This is a good indication that your baby’s pelvis and spine are developmentally ready to be worn in a spread squat position. The position of your baby in a carrier should always mirror a developmentally appropriate position in which you would carry your baby in-arms. 

Je Porte Mon Bebe spread squatThe photo above is a perfect example of the spread squat position with a baby who is developmentally ready. Baby has strong neck and torso control, sits much more upright in the wrap, with less of a curve in the spine, and the pelvis is naturally more open, with the legs easily spanning the mother’s torso. Many babies will gradually shift toward this position as they approach 4 months, and most by 5 months. This baby is likely beginning to push up on hands and knees, and may be doing some “tripod” sitting.

Physical developmental milestones can always help guide us toward the appropriate carriers and positions for a baby. Wearing a carrier which is comfortable for both you and your baby will mean more babywearing, which in turn fosters a more secure bond. That relationship is carried down the road and will benefit you both for years to come, even when your baby is too big for you to lift.

How to choose the best babywearing pic of 2013??

PAXbaby.com

PAXbaby.com

 365 days of wearing your baby (babies) daily…. how does one choose a favorite picture to share from 2013!??!?!

With the invention of the camera phone, it just is SO easy to record all of these special moments in your life! Which also means that there are always a million amazing photos to choose from when making a photo collage of the year. *wink*

Do you have a favorite babywearing photo from 2013?

Do you find that you take a lot of photos of yourself babywearing?

It will be so awesome to look back on these when our babies are grown, and remember the times that we wore them close.
