One I love
Lir Slings Realt Aodh is now actually mine! It's grey and white, half Irish linen, and is supportive and fairly grippy but not unpleasant to wrap with even new, and getting so nice and soft now that it has been broken in a bit! I think it's the perfect wrap for winter (which should last for several more months around here).
One I want
For a more whimsical take on the deep of winter, I think Natibaby polaria frosty is adorable. Penguins, polar bears, seals, and sled dogs adorn this polar themed wrap in dark blue and off white in a 30/70 wool/cotton blend. (Picture is screenshot from Natibaby site where it is for sale!)
One way to wear it
While exercising! Have you heard of The Babywearing Workout? It's a fitness video designed for exercising while babywearing! I love that it takes the logistics of babywearing into account when designing moves to make sure they are safe for mamas and babies. My son thinks its hilarious to be wrapped up while mama exercises, and I think if I can keep a consistent routine up with it that I can be back into my normal clothing sizes by the time my sister-in-law gets married this summer!
I'll post a full review coming soon, but basically, I really like it and think its definitely worth doing and amazed at the wonderful customer service from Kelli (I had computer issues and she was helpful and sympathetic! This is why I love working with WAHM companies!)
PS: The Babywearing Workout runs fun contests from time to time to motivate people to keep exercising, so be sure to follow them on Facebook so you know when they are coming and can join in! The next one started this week and features dozens of awesome babywearing and general baby care prizes including an Onya baby carrier, and its not too late to join in! You're supposed to exercise 5 days a week for the next 10 weeks with 3 days/week being The Babywearing Workout, so you can count the first three days of this week as your off days or as your cross-training days!
