purposefuldoula-I love your site! I should totally get more ambitious and sell mine as opposed to making them for friends and gifting, lol. I encapsulate placentas, make carriers, make waldorf dolls, and sew pretty much whatever,lol, and when my friends have babes I do the whole post partum doula thing, I'm not certified but I have apprenticed with a good friend of mine for eons so I do follow-up support and make them meals, etc....DH teases me that if I ever could get my business-brain in gear I could make a living off it, but I really dislike charging for stuff I love doing, lol....ehhhhh I don't like money. I don't like that I need it....grrr.
Dreary Saturday here and I am so glad the heat is gone for now and won't be back til next week. I greatly dislike hotness. I like 60 degree weather and comfy sweaters always...plus I like baking and baking when it is like 100 is the opposite of a good time, lol....hello solar oven!
tropicana-definitely try and find either a local baby-wearing group or an otherwise crunchy mama group where someone might be willing to let you borrow slings until you figure out which one works best for you. I highly recommend the mei-tai...it is soooo versatile and comfy, and I dunno, just cute,lol...but you have to figure out what you like best! Good luck mama!!
