Even before my first child was born, I knew that I wanted to babywear. Once Tee was born, I liked the convenience of wearing her, and we both appreciated the closeness. I still miss the feeling of my baby peacefully sleeping, snuggled up against my chest. It wasn’t until my second came along though, that I truly realized just how essential babywearing would be to my sanity.
From the moment Kay arrived, I was all about the baby wrap. Older sister Tee was two and a half years old at the time and made for mischief. Babywearing was the only way I could care for Kay and still keep Tee from climbing up the outside of the staircase or throwing herself off the top of the refrigerator.
There are so many reasons to wear your baby. Baby wearing encourages bonding, decreases crying, and lets moms and dads get things done. With no buckles, straps, or finicky attachments, a wrap is infinitely adjustable for both mom and baby and simply keeps baby safe and secure whatever else mom has to do. If you have an expecting or new mom on your list this holiday season, get her a baby wrap. Trust me, she’ll thank you for the sanity saver!
HUMAN + MOTHER baby wraps are custom knit in Scarborough, Ontario, Canada from 100% Lenzing Modal, a luxuriously soft, lightweight, and sustainable fabric made from beechwood fiber. Their five neutral colours and one subtle striped pattern are designed to harmoniously complement any outfit. These beautifully simple wraps are suitable for newborns up to about 18 months (7-25 pounds) and make a thoughtful gift for socially-conscious, stylish, and on-the-go parents.
Lenzing Modal may be new to you; it was to me. This baby-safe fabric is made from beechwood fibre harvested from sustainably managed forests in Austria and produced using a patented process that generates little to no waste. That makes it one of the most sustainable and eco-friendly fabrics available and perfect to make baby wraps! The fabric is custom woven and dyed locally, and it won’t pill or stretch out of shape. Since Lenzing Modal is stronger than cotton, it’s ideal for long-term baby wearing.
You have a choice where you spend your money, but some choices are easier than others. HUMAN + MOTHER believes that every woman has the right to safe birth and medical support during pregnancy and the postpartum period, and that’s why they donate $3 from the purchase of every wrap to Midwives for Haiti and Circle of Health International. When you buy a HUMAN + MOTHER baby wrap, you’re not just buying a wrap. You’re also helping to support two organizations that work tirelessly to help reduce the maternal and infant mortality rate in some of the poorest countries around the world.
HUMAN + MOTHER baby wraps are affordably priced at $79.99. Shop for eco-friendly, socially responsible, made in Canada wraps, apparel, and accessories at HUMAN + MOTHER. Connect on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest.
