This cartoon is soooo hilarious and accurate.

Did you hire anyone to assist you after your birth? Which did you find the MOST helpful? Did you hire them for subsequent births, or only the first?
It is so funny how many “THINGS” we think we need with the first baby, then we actually give birth and find out what we reallllly need. Haha!

Diapers. Milk. Sling. Clothes. and HELP!

With your purchase of the Kinderpack, you will receive :

The much anticipated return print, “Wiz Kid” is sure to be any fans favorite! Black background with stars, and white and gold lightning bolts! Paired with black straps and a matching print hoodie hood.

Infant: up to 2 years, 8-35 lbs, starting at 22″ tall

Standard: 8mo-3 yrs 20-40lbs, starting at around 30″ tall

Toddler: 18mo-4+ yrs, 25-45 lbs, starting at around 32″ tall

Preschool: 3-5 years, 35-55 lbs, starting at 38″ tall

Sizes for the adult: 
The Kinderpack is available in 2 sizes, standard or plus size, for a custom fit for you:

 Standard: Size 0-22 (19-20? straps+ 13? of webbing; waistband fit 26"-60")

 Plus size: Size 18 and up (24? straps+ 13? of webbing; waistband fits 26?-60?)- great for large busted women, and tall men.

  *Plus size straps on infant and standard sizes can be used by parents that may not meet the minimum recommended clothing size

Features:

Straps and Waist
The shoulder straps are slightly contoured with an integrated, quick adjust chest strap.

Kinderpack first innovated the “Perfect Fit” strap length adjusters. This feature can shorten the length of the shoulder strap for your “Perfect Fit”. If tightened, you can also loosen them to create more space for nursing.

The shoulder strap is generously padded for optimal comfort and is shaped just enough to avoid the dreaded underarm rub.

The semi curved, 3 part waistband conforms to most body shapes without pushing your pants down (this is a common problem with many other carriers!)

Hood or Sleep Shade
All full panel (non-Koolnit) have a 2 piece lined hood that is aviator shaped. Very cute! The hood features the completely exclusive ‘stuff and snap’ hood design. Simply stuff the hood inside the body when not in use and snap the 2 piece structured headrest together!

This also creates a pocket for soft items such as a diaper. Very convenient! You dont have to choose between a carrier with a headrest or a hood- the Kinderpack has both! The Kinderpack hood also features a buckled hood tie.

*Note: Kinderpacks with Koolnit, or mesh of any kind, have flat, rectangular sleep shades instead of the shaped hood.

Body panel
The 3 piece shaped contoured body is the first of its kind. The curved pieces form a bulbous seat pocket for baby’s bottom that curves in at baby’s back. This exclusive shaping promotes proper support and follows the shape of their little bottoms and backs, making their wearing experience as comfy as it can be. There really is a difference!

Structure
As with all Kindercarry baby carriers, canvas is the main fabric used for straps, body, and internal layers. Our carriers are some of the most supportive and sturdy on the market. All structural components are made from 8 oz Brushed Canvas, and then paired with a fashion print for style. Each Kinderpack has an internal layer of canvas or twill inside the body. Shoulder straps, webbing, and waistband are reinforced with bar tacking internally and X or V box reinforcement you can see on the outside at all joining points. All of these details make for an extremely strong and durable baby carrier.

** Please be advised that soft structured carriers are made to be worn more loosely than mei tais and wraps. This may take a little getting used to if those are the kinds of carriers you are used to wearing. Tightening your straps as far as they go, and then easing back on the buckle slightly, will give you your best fit. Avoid tightening straps too tightly- this will cause neck strain and underarm rub.

*Consult your instruction booklet for more detailed wearing information, as well as tips and tricks.

PAXmommy Mel’s loss

PAXbaby.com

paxbaby_loss_pregnancy_miscarriage_pregnant

PAXbaby.com

“This should be my belly right now. I know five babies was not in our “plan” but now that #5 is no longer here, the pain of the loss runs deep. I never knew how much miscarriage can mess with your hormones, your mind, your heart. I should be prepping tiny diapers and finishing last minute quilts and blankies right now. Instead, I’m packing up the last of Baby #4’s diapers knowing there will never be another little baby here again. If anything, this experience has given me way more empathy to others going through the same thing. “It’s probably for the best.” And “be thankful for the kids you have” are not comforting … The grief is real, whether the baby was planned or not. The hormone fluctuation is real, and can make you feel off the wall. I know it is not my fault but the guilt of having four healthy, easy pregnancies and then a loss, is real. What went wrong with this one? I compare my loss to others, and think, “Ok, you need to suck it up – other people have been through WAY worse.” “At least it wasn’t _____” But, I need to allow myself sadness, time to grieve. My loss was real. It may be different, but it is still real.

I was ok for awhile here, but now that the EDD is looming, the pain is all so fresh again. Thankful that my hormones are no longer a rollercoaster. Thankful for the few friends that “get it”. Thankful for Luc’s sweet snuggles and thankful for jiu jitsu for keeping me sane. I don’t normally post like this but normalizing miscarriage might help someone else reach out. It can be an isolating journey, when no one else feels the pain but you. ????????#babyJett #baby5

PAXmommy Mel lost her Baby #5 this past winter, and today would have been her EDD.

If you are ever feeling alone on this journey, please know that we are here for you. Email us, post on this wall, or comment below that you need a friend. You are not alone, PAXfriends. <3

MySols are here!!!

PAXbaby.com

PAXbaby_girasol_exclusive_mysols_vice versa_suprise_cream_dw_babywearing

PAXbaby.com

The MySol is made from two layers of Girasol wrap fabric that nestles like a second skin around the baby being carried! Worn with either side facing out, the MySol is essentially reversible lengthening its life span and doubling its usability!

The MySol has been designed to grow with the child in order to ensure that babywearers get the most for their money and can use it for as long as possible: the width of the material between the legs may be easily adjusted – ideal for baby’s ergonomic M position with knees higher than bum!  The back of the MySol may be extended so that the carrier will still safely and comfortably fit even after your baby has grown into a toddler! The integrated hood supports your sleeping baby’s head and protects it against the sun; the hood’s width is also adjustable.

Lightly padded shoulder straps and a padded waistband also make the MySol so comfy. Your carrier will include a chest belt as well as a practical hip bag, and a storage bag!!!  Girasol’s My Sol have been lovingly woven and sewn in small workshops in Guatemala, and finished entirely from hand loomed woven wrap fabric!!!

Wear the MySol with love!

http://shop.paxbaby.com/girasol-mysol/

**Girasol has emailed us with some interesting information regarding their design change! On the recommendation of babywearing consultants, the MySol will no longer feature that drawstring but instead offer a different way to cinch the front panel of the carrier. As one of the accessories included with the My Sol, the hip belt has velcro on each end so that it can be used to secure the width of the panel.

Carseat Safety

PAXbaby.com

e

PAXbaby.com

Carry your baby, not your car seat.

Like it, share it, spread the word!

We are not fueling the parent wars; merely shedding light on a common practice.

It’s *never* safe to put a car seat on top of a cart, whether or not it clicks in. The clicking can actually damage your seat, as it wasn’t meant to attach to anything ot
her than its own base, and cause it to fail in an accident. This is specifically detailed in the car seat manuals. Additionally, the seat makes the cart incredibly top heavy and many babies have been injured or killed when carts have tipped over with their seats on top.

If you cannot babywear, try putting the bucket seat directly into the basket of the cart.
