How true is this for our little world of babywearing????

When did you first fall down the rabbit hole?? The world of babywearing has changed so much in the last few years, it truly is amazing. To think under ten years ago it was actually hard to find a woven wrap locally, and now…. and now there are soooo many amazing beauties at the touch of our finger tips! While spending hours online researching these carriers, we find our friends, our support systems, our “families” and ourselves. The journey through motherhood can be lonely, and overwhelming but oh so rewarding when we finally find our “people”. We PAXmommies fell in love with babywearing years ago, and love where the journey has taken us: babywearing education, doula training, teaching, placenta encapsulation, home birthing, birth photography, natural parenting, Bradley Method training, and SO MANY AMAZING  NEW FRIENDS!

Where has babywearing taken YOU??

Toddler Worthy

PAXbaby.com

PAXbaby_rio_girasol_toddler worthy meme

PAXbaby.com

This is a phrase we hear in the babywearing world quite often…what does toddler worthy mean to you?

We all know that the majority of stretchy wraps (not including JPMBB or Wrapsody) are outgrown at 15lbs, but what about woven wraps? Can your baby be too big, too heavy, too long for a woven wrap?  The answer is kind of up in the air, and really seems to all boils down to personal preference.  If a wrap is tightened carefully, strand by strand, it should be “toddler worthy”.

Where have you worn YOUR babies this Summer???

Camping? Hiking? Traveling?

Some Summer faves around here are:

- A PAXmommy staple: wrap conversion ring slings

- mesh water ring sling or wrap

- thin, shorty for a quick ruck

- Tula for longer hikes

What about YOU??
