The Babies of Babywearing

Happy International Babywearing Week! I am continuing my celebration of International Babywearing Week with MORE PICTURES!! Yay! You can’t exactly do any babywearing without a baby! (Though I have seen many a stuffed animal or even a dog being worn) So the babies are the main focus this time. As I said before, babies that are close with their moms (or dads) are happy, content babies. It was so interesting to watch each baby interact with his/her mom, react to me taking pictures and to their surroundings. Seven different babies with seven very different personalities, but all loved being worn by their moms!

Demi

I could not get over how beautiful this baby’s eyes were. I love blue eyed babies! Demi’s mom, Mandi says that she loves babywearing because “I love feeling her so close, especially in social situations where there’s a lot of people around. She relaxes immediately in the carrier and so do I.”

Norah

Norah loves when mom bounces her around while wearing her. Her mom, Amanda says that she loves babywearing because it “keeps me hands free and baby comfy”.

Rebecca2

Even though Baby Evan wasn’t feeling 100%, I got a few shots of this sweet boy snuggling his mom. I am partial to this ring sling because I made it, and plus it makes his eyes POP! Rebecca says she loves babywearing because “When nothing else will calm him down, babywearing does!”

Kaylee

Kaylee’s mom Shelby is fairly new to babywearing, but these two fell in love fast with this carrier and how comfy it was for both. Shelby says that she loves babywearing because “we feel closer together”.

Shannon2

I had not seen adorable Zecheriah in quite a few months, but as soon as he saw me he reached out and I got to hold him while his mom got all ready with the carrier. Shannon says she loves babywearing because “It has helped me be close to my little one, but still allow me to be hands free to take care of my other children and get housework completed”

TJ2

Greyson has the most adorable curly hair and beautiful eyes. His mom, TJ says  “I love to wear my baby because they feel safe when they are close. I can nurse and have my hands free!”

Maria2

Baby Jameson cracked me up with his smiles and wiggles! Him mom, Maria, says that she loves babywearing because “Because its the only time My son will cuddle with me”.

It really was amazing how easy it was to get these sweet babies to smile while being held by their moms. If you want to see more babywearing photos check out My Babywearing Project.
