Toddler Worthy

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”.

FREE Friday with Wrap Scrap Stash

PAXbaby.com

a Rafflecopter giveaway

PAXbaby.com

Introducing:

Wrap Scrap Stash
(the company ;))

Our FREE FRIDAY giveaway this week is a fabulous assortment of wrap scrap items in ZIG ZAG herringbone, including a camera strap cover, paci clip, key fob and headband!

A little about the mama behind the business:

Alex is a WAHM and full-time home schooler.

After making herself a purse one day out of a Double Rainbow *purpura Romana* woven wrap, she fell in love. After that, she knew that there were so many pretty rainbows out there just waiting for things to be created from them!  She wanted something that she could use on a daily basis not only now, but after her baby wearing days were long over. Alex thought to herself that she surely could not be the only mama out there with that desire, and so Wrap Scrap Stash was created.

Since that first purse, her business has grown more than she ever imagined and she gives her thanks all to her wonderful customers. Recently Alex has been able to branch out from just accessories (purses, headbands, diaper bags, etc) to being able to offer wrap scrap accessories that coordinate with Tula wrap conversion baby carriers.

To ensure the safety of her customers’ children, all of Alex’s handmade items meet CPSC and CPSIA safety requirements and regulations.

Special PAXfriend discount code: 10% off entire in-stock purchase with the code PAX10.

How do I love VV?
Let me count the ways.
I love VV for its warp and weft and weave
Soft brand-new, like you can barely believe
Its stunning jeweltones, the way the colors are so bold.
My love for VV is worth its weight in gold.
Enough to write poems about it every day
And pray the ISO Angels will see fit to send one my way.

The Baby Carrier Industry Alliance needs our support!

There is a lot happening in the small world of the babywearing industry at the moment. New standards are being enacted which will change the way baby carriers are regulated in the US, and ultimately, around the world. The BCIA works tirelessly to provide a voice for businesses, like PAXbaby, and consumers, like YOU, in the creation of this legislation.

The lobbying, the attorneys, traveling to ASTM meetings around the country, representing babywearers and the babywearing industry as a whole does not come cheaply and the BCIA is desperately in need of additional funds so that they can be sure the new standards protect both babywearing and babies!

To learn more about these regulations, please watch this short video:

Understanding Who’s Who in the World of Babywearing Regulations

We are urging all babywearers to consider a direct donation to the BCIA, in the form of membership. Join the BCIA here.

To show our support, in addition to our membership, PAXbaby is hosting an auction through Spot’s Corner, with all funds raised beyond the opening bid going directly to the BCIA.

What are we auctioning, you ask?
