Well hello again friends. I’m officially a Mom of 2 now. So wild to me. Starting this blog a good 20 years ago (do you remember when we first heard the word “blog” and thinking it was the strangest name ever? Who came up with the name BLOG anyway?). Who has been a longtime reader of mine? Raise your hand in the comment section.
I’ll admit, I was a bit spooked at first, thinking about adding a second child into our family. I knew I always wanted bebs to have a sibling. I am so much more confident this time around. Especially more comfortable wearing my baby (this is the Nesting Days carrier). I think with bebs (my first boy) I was so anxious with him. I was always nervous he’d stop breathing at any moment, and sleep deprived because: first time Momma. Not going to lie, wasn’t looking forward to the newborn stage this time since I thought I knew what to expect. Going from 0-1 kid is HARD, and I thought 1-2 would be nutso. It’s not! This time I’m so much more relaxed, and also not as nervous meaning more sleep & more energy which is making everyone pretty happy in general lol. I’m in a little slice of heaven here, wearing baby boy – this pic (below)he was 6 days old. He’s almost 3 weeks old now.
So a quick little story about the carrier I’m wearing. Nesting Days carriers are made locally in San Francisco, California. Sure just right up the street b’y, wha?
It’s not your typical baby wrap where it’s a ton of fabric and you need to figure out how tie everything together to get your baby to sit in the wrap. This one is “pre-made” so-to-speak. You literally wear it like a t-shirt (stepping into it is the easiest way, actually), and it’s made
As much as I’d love to sit down for hours on end staring at this newborns face, I have a toddler who needs me too (Scott is back at work [from home] as of last week), so I truly do need my two hands free to tend to an infant, a toddler, and make meals. It’s super comfortable, and easy to use. I am wearing either this polka dot one or my marine blue one most of the day so I can pop in the babes at any given moment. The material is an activewear type of material, and washes well (even on the hot cycle when baby spits up on my carrier). I don’t put it in the dryer for very long, about 10 mins. So far, so good!
I’m fully embracing baby-wearing this time around and I’m so happy about it! Thanks to Nesting Days for gifting me (not sponsored – but gifted!) the carrier to try out.
