Baby Wearing

After attending a "Baby Wearing" workshop at a local baby boutique, I became very interested in slings, wraps and carriers. I quickly learned to make my own carriers, which birthed my boutique 2 by 2 Boutique.

Quick facts about baby wearing:

  • Better for their motor, emotional, and cognitive development

  • Frees up your hands for chores and other children

  • discrete, hands-free nursing is easy

  • Can navigate places a stroller can't and is easily stowed away in your bag

  • Great for cuddling and is fun too!
Here is a great video of stroller vs. wrap from the baby's perspective:
