"Babywearing is the way of life." ~Britt Beason, founder of Tropical Babywearing

New parents navigating the world of modern baby gear there is so much information available online and in the giant retail stores, it is hard to know where to start. My husband, Kelly, and I were overwhelmed with the fancy products versus the evidence-based research on safety and necessity in all of these posh items. Babywearing was one of the topics on which to begin intensive research.

When my husband and I first tried babywearing, we simply used the carrier that someone had lent us and figured it out. It was terrible and both of us decided that our arms were more than capable of holding our sweet little love, thinking, “there’s only one of her, right?!”

Fast-forward eight months, I was at my wits’ end and we needed something, my babe and I.  We needed HELP! My daughter was a very attached child, and I was a working mom. I was loosing my mind trying to BE with her during the little time I had with her and still attend to our home. I happened upon a local group of mommies gathering to discuss babywearing, different carriers, and socialize. I met the woman in charge of these meet-ups and I scheduled the consult that was perhaps the most valuable investment I’ve ever made in my family. I made up my mind fairly quickly to work with the purpose of helping to change more lives the way that babywearing changed mine.
