As I reflected on this month’s Sling Diaries theme, I kept coming back to the same thought: babywearing is love.
I can hold my little one close to my heart while I live life, fulfilling her needs without sacrificing my own. And then I realized that it expands even beyond this as a new mother of two. Now, not only can I care for both myself and my baby by wearing her close, but freeing up my hands allows me to continue caring for my older daughter, Poppy, as well.
Adjusting to life with two has been tricky the last 7 weeks and we’ve tried to be constantly aware of how this new addition is affecting our firstborn. While babywearing can’t solve all of our adjustment issues (if only!), it has allowed Poppy and I to carry on with some of our most beloved normal routines in almost normal ways.
If that isn’t love, then I don’t know what is.
Walks with friends.

Checking out new stories at the library.
Fun at the tot lot.
