Onya Baby Logo

Babywearing is something near and dear to my heart. I wish I had known about it when my oldest (now 16) was a baby and toddler. I learned about it when I was pregnant with my now two-year old son and knew it was something I wanted to do. I wore him in wraps shortly after he was born and graduated to soft structured carriers as he got older. Now that I have another baby (almost 7 months), I wear her, too. In fact, we've become a babywearing family … [Read more...]

Action Baby Carrier Review and Giveaway

IMG_3847

When my oldest was born I didn't hear or see anything about babywearing. I never knew about it so I never wore him. Fast forward 14 years to when I was pregnant with LA in 2010 and I heard a lot about it. I was curious and read up on it. After some research I knew I wanted to wear LA. Shortly after he was born I wore him in a wrap and loved it. As he got older I used structured carriers but my back often hurt so I didn't do it as much as I … [Read more...]
