2. Wear Your Baby
In a recent blog, our fabulous contributor Sarah Lozanova, who writes a natural parenting blog at RawMama.org, shares the value of baby-wearing. Baby-wearing is something many of us are probably familiar with, even if we didn’t know it had a name. Walking in my Kansas college town’s quaint downtown, I often see men and women decked out with their strapped-on babies. There is a good reason for the trend: Close physical contact is one of the best ways to help babies adjust to life in the world outside the womb, and it helps them become confident, happy toddlers. For the comfort of both caregiver and child, it’s important to choose the right tool for the job–one that balances the baby’s weight and helps protect her. Sarah offers a couple of healthy organic products, and gives a bunch more reasons to consider wearing your baby in her blog.
