1,000 Cranes Traveling Wrap

PAXbaby.com

PAXbaby.com

Today we are sharing an amazing story… One of our PAXmommies had the pleasure of hosting this beautiful wrap for two weeks, and brought it to a PAXbaby Playdate where many moms all got to snuggle and love up on it before it was sent on it’s merry way.  PAXmommy Jillian and #babycate were #7 to try it.

1,000 Cranes of Love Around the World.

**taken from the about section on the FB group**

The Background:

I have a very dear friend who is in one of the longest struggles of infertility I have personally witnessed. Every step of the process has seemed to be filled with more obstacles than anyone ever should endure. When she was about 3 years into her struggle, my husband and I made her 1000 cranes in order to help her wish come true (Japanese tradition). When I saw the Artipoppe origami “folded” wraps this winter, I immediately thought that a 1000 cranes wrap is what she needs! I PM’d Anna (owner of Artipoppe) and she said she was planning to release several this year. I put up an ISO immediately asking for mamas help in getting this wrap. They were released on 2/19/2014 and within a couple of hours, a mama offered me the one she had been so lucky to score! It’s 1000 Cranes Dawn.

The Plan:

The plan is to make this gift extra special by having it travel through many lovely mamas (hopefully at least a 1000 babies) who will give it magic mama and baby love. Then I will give it to her when she is ready to receive it (probably not until she is firmly through 1st trimester or later). A journal will travel with the wrap (please see Journal instructions doc). Anyone who wants to send other mementos can send them directly to Anna Meyer ( PM me for my address). If you have other ideas, please also PM us (admins are myself and my SIL Sally Soliman). I want to try to include each and every one of you who have expressed interest. Logistically, we will have a wrap caretaker in each location who will arrange ways for many mamas in the community to participate.

Does this sound like something you would be into?

What an amazing opportunity to help spread the babywearing love, and show someone exactly what the babywearing community is made of!!!!!

Mastitis is no joke

PAXbaby.com

Happy 2 weeks to #babycate and OH NO, I have mastitis!

PAXbaby.com

PAXbaby.com

Mastitis is the pits.  It is such an awful affliction that women have to deal with when dealing with breastfeeding / pumping, and it’s just not fair.  I’m not a whiner about most things, but when it comes to pain, I am such a wimp.  And when it comes to mastitis, I’m such a complainer.  I don’t take it for the team, and I certainly don’t keep mum about it.  My whole family knew exactly how miserable I was, and how much I detest mastitis, and how hot / cold / achy / sad / miserable I felt.

PAXbaby.com

They say that mastitis strikes when the mother has been to active or too stressed, neither of which seems to fit the bill since I haven’t left my own yard for over 4 weeks, nor been back to work yet.  #babycate & I have spent our babymoon cuddling, taking pictures, enjoying long baths, and reading books with her older siblings!  Not fair then for mastitis to strike me down just when I was planning to venture out to the neighborhood park!  How dare mastitis ruin my plans to take #babycate’s first babywearing video!!  And then I realized….  maybe it was exactly those plans that brought on the dreaded boob plague!  Maybe what my body was telling me was that I needed those extra days to rest up!  Even though the birth went amazingly well, and my body is healing so easily, maybe what I needed was to continue to rest, and enjoy these precious moments before getting back in the swing of things!

PAXbaby.com

So although #babycate and I seem to have conquered that mean mastitis bully, thanks to the wonderful advice & help from a multitude of friends, I have cancelled all plans for the next week and a half.  I broke a playdate I was planning with a sweet friend.  I folded up my jeans, and got back out my lounge pants.  I downsized my Thanksgiving plans.  I’m taking it easy in a professional way, and staying here in babymoon mode an extra week!  #babycate’s main goal in life is to restore her breast world back to normal over here, and my goal is to relax, let go of my plans, and be okay with that!  I am so grateful to the PAXmommies who have insisted that I take extra time, and to PAXdaddy who is managing the household, while also renovating our living room!  I am so grateful to be a WAHM, and I’m so grateful to YOU who have helped me be a WAHM.

In that year think of all the new babies that have been snuggled, the new friends that have been made and the new carriers that have been tried!

Babywearing playdates are an awesome way to connect with other babywearers, learn and practice different carries, try new carriers, wraps and slings,  and of course meet some of the PAXmommies & PAXmommy Jillian.
