Yesterday, I joined The Savannah Slingers for a "Sling Meet" in the beautiful Forsyth Park. (One of the awesome perks of being a WAHM "Working At Home Mom" has definitely been participating in events DURING THE DAY! Whaaat?!)
This is a "baby wearing" group. If that sounds like some sick form of animal/small-human cruelty that PETA would not approve, then you clearly aren't up on your contempo-crunchy mom lingo. Don't sweat. We all start somewhere. (wink)
"Baby Wearing" is basically just tying your baby to your body and hauling it around like a Sherpa... It's like a blue tooth... hands free! I'm a "get it done" kind of girl, and I like to have my hands free, so baby wearing is definitely for me.
The Sav.Slingers get together to swap information, sample the myriad of different slings/wraps/carriers/etc available, and generally geek out about the sweet joys of being a pack horse.
With BabyKawa still inside, I haven't been able to try out my gorgeous orange Moby wrap. My only test subject has been my Shih Tsu... who was none-too-pleased. At the Sling Meet, I stole somebody's beautiful 2 month old daughter and Moby-ied her up good!
She loved it! And sucked a big wet spot onto the wrap. Clearly a mark of approval!
Baby Kawa didn't necessarily like somebody sitting on his butt... but he got over it.
(PS - Look at my hideously swollen feet!! Gaaah!! Dislike.)
I'm excited to get my own little peanut in this do-hicky. We're entering Fall/Winter, so its the perfect time to have five yards of fabric and a miniature furnace tied to my chest. If you're nice and comment on my blog, I'll let you borrow him to keep warm.
