Babywearing & You
Babies are born to be worn; babywearing is a biologically normal tool that mothers have been using for hundreds of years. The art has traditionally been passed down generations to generation, friend-to-friend, woman-to-woman.
In recent history, especially in our Western culture, this art has been lost. I knew when I was pregnant I would need to keep my son close, in order for both of us to thrive as we navigated our new journey when he came earth-side. In 2013 he was born and we started wearing.
Since then I have gained much knowledge about babywearing. I established the Rochester and Southeastern Minnesota Babywearers; an active group on Facebook of mothers and caregivers that carry their little ones. With the help of my additional administrators we coordinate monthly meet ups and offer a local lending library that includes a variety of carrier types and brands.
