Game changer September 29, 2017 13:36
The baby carrier dilemma... when our daughter was born, we invested in a classic structured baby carrier. We were lucky enough to also be gifted a wrap style carrier. In my mind we were set.
Turns out I was wrong. The wrap style didn't seem to ever leave her feeling comfortable and the structured carrier wasn't a great fit on my body (better for my husband), but also wasn't that usable when she was an infant. Despite these challenges, I never considered investing in another baby carrier. It seemed redundant and wasteful.
Enter my wonderful friend and mother of two. She insisted she wanted to give us a gift of an ergo baby carrier. I refused and explained my already plentiful stable of carriers. She persisted, and one day an ergo baby arrived in the mail.
From day 1 my life changed. My daughter was at peace in the carrier and that meant I was too. I could have her snuggled in, but also maintain the use of my arms. I could do things with two hands again. She almost always fell asleep instantly in it. It had a perfect infant insert and was super comfy on my body. I could go walking and have her be happy. It was AMAZING!!! This single piece of equipment was such a major game changer for us as new parents.
I am eternally grateful for my friends wisdom and persistence, and I want to pass this wisdom on to others. This said, I want you to find the right carrier for you. For me, it's ergo all the way.
California Baby and Angel Hair May 23, 2017 16:28
Does your little one have long but very fine (and easily tangled) hair?
Ours does. And we've been using, and LOVING, California Baby's Calming Hair De-tangler lately. It really is calming and leaves the "angel hair" smelling sweet and easy to manage. But not only is this de-tangler calming, it's also made with organic and sustainably-grown ingredients.
It's so great t to have a product that's wonderful to use but also so committed to being environmentally-friendly and sustainable. It also makes us happy to know that California Baby was founded and is run by a woman - a real inspiration for Piperoos!
