    Recently I wrote a post about the unexpected ways I've found community through my kids. I shared that for me this was not part of my initial plan, that community had happened but was not something I had sought. That was a bit of an oversimplification, though. One particular response to that...

    Beginning even before you find out you're pregnant, parenthood is filled with decisions (which brand of pregnancy test to purchase??). Some simple, some difficult, all important… and although it can be overwhelming, I'm pretty sure there will come a time when our children are making their...

    A picture of a babywearing waitress creating her own 'take your child to work' day went viral and we love the message she is sending to the world. Mamas have to do what they have to do, right? One mom and babywearing waitress was recently asked to work a shift for her boss at the Greenback Drug...

    Sometimes it seems that no matter how hard they try, fathers can't do anything right. Our culture spends much time trying to get fathers to step up to the plate. From giving baths to changing diapers, we want dads to take an equal part in child-rearing duties. This week, John Stamos did just...

    Before I became a mother I constantly said, "My kids will never (fill in the blank)." My husband and I agreed our babies wouldn't take over our lives. We would still go out with friends, have date nights, follow a strict routine, and keep our bed to ourselves. Attachment parenting to me sounded...

    When wearing your baby, it's important to make sure the carrier is comfy for you and for your little. That's why the Tula Free-To-Grow Carrier is one of our favorites! When I started looking at baby carriers, I was not paying attention to the things I should have been paying attention to. Yes...

    A working mother shares her advice for practicing attachment parenting while holding down a full-time job - and staying (somewhat) sane through it all. On the day of my first big promotion, I sat in my office with a clove of garlic stuck up my vagina. I was very pregnant with my first child...

    Dear old, green sling, you've been my good and faithful friend for nearly six years. Before we part for good, I cannot help but walk down memory lane. When you were first given to me, I was excited to wear you, but I really knew very little about how. A dear friend made you with her own hands...

    Babywearing is a lifesaver for parents, especially if you have a high-needs baby or multiple kids. Here are some great choices for newborn babies. As soon as I conceived my first child, I knew I wanted to try babywearing. It made sense, to me, that parents should keep their babies close to...

    When I first came across WildBird Ring Slings on Instagram, my eye was caught by the beautiful colors and stylish, happy-looking mamas wearing their little ones. I knew I had to order one. Of course, I didn't "need" another carrier - I have more than enough (many moms reading this will know...

    While babywearing is all the rage, experts would hardly call it a trend. It's a practice that has been around for years. For thousands of years and across many cultures, babywearing has been practiced not only as a convenience, but as an actual necessity. Carrying babies has been traced back...

    Obviously, we are big fans of babywearing for both moms and dads. Lalabu is too - and they've got a shirt designed just for pops. I wore my son everywhere. I mean everywhere. I loved the two carriers I used exclusively, and when he'd no longer let me wear him, it was a sad day. (In fairness, by...
