I’ve been wearing Baby #4 since about a week or so post-partum and I get questions all the time about the carriers I use, where they come from and how to use them as baby-wearing isn’t super widespread here. Baby #4 (and sometimes Baby #3) can often be seen in a Beco BB2, a woven wrap, a stretchy wrap, or a ring sling. Because I was working outside the home with my first three kids, I didn’t get the time to bond with them through baby-wearing. Let me tell you, I. Just. Love. It. I’m so thankful to be able to do that now. It’s also an awesome sight to see my little baby get excited when I unfold a wrap to carry her. I’m so happy that she loves it as much as I do.
I’ve purchased some of my carriers from other mamas who were trading them out or passing them along, but I’ve also purchased some from an online baby wearing shop, PaxBaby.com.
PAX Baby is run by the joyful Jillian Davidsson – who is a mommy to six! She has an online shop, lots of awesome tutorials, and tons of products, carrier rentals, and customization services. I had my Beco BB2 customized by PaxBaby (via Pimp My Carrier) – see the photo to your right – with some darling fabrics to make it truly unique. You can find everything from structured carriers to wraps, ring slings, wrap pieces, jewelry, accessories, carrier customizations and more. If you’re unsure about baby-wearing, you can always email PAX Baby for help and they’ll work with you to figure out which carrier is right for you and your little one(s).
Not only is the shop great, PAX Baby is a family-owned business. Since we also run a small business, supporting others who do is is very important to me. Now, here’s the 411 on the giveaway. Pax Baby just hit 10,000 likes on their FB page. How awesome is that? In honor of their 10,000 likes, they are doing a super cool giveaway.
