2 Carriers to Have as Your Baby Grows

 | May 14, 2019 | Posted by:

Women have been baby wearing for thousands of years, but somehow we Westerners have only jumped on the bandwagon relatively recently.

Here are our two favorites!

K’tan

This is a k’tan and we love it because it’s versatile. It will hold an 8-25 pound baby, and is perfect for those first few months. You can tighten or loosen according to the baby’s growth. There are lots of fun patterns and colors to choose from. You can really let your personality shine through in your choice.

Ergo Original

This Ergo Original is very practical from day one through toddlerhood. You can purchase a newborn insert separately and once they grow you can remove it.

These carriers are the perfect addition to your baby registry. They will save you on days where your baby just wants to be held and on days when you’re out and about with the family.

We love baby wearing and love talking about our favorite styles. Feel free to talk with our midwives at your next visit to discuss any questions you might have.

There are a few guidelines that I try to follow, though, especially for nursing moms. I try to be mindful because that sweet babe has never had to digest his mama’s milk before. Whatever mom eats, baby eats.

Winter is a fabulous time to take food to new parents because it’s soup season. One-pot meals are my fave, and are especially wonderful when taking to another family. Plus, you can load up on veggies and broth that add much-needed nutrients.

Don’t forget to add instructions for baking or heating. Those postpartum hormones are no joke, and every little bit of brain cells we can save our sleep-deprived friends is a help.
