In the first two weeks of Margot’s precious life, she has spent a good portion of it close to my heart. Whether she’s nursing or I’m carrying her, there’s something intricate and delicate and so special about having her near to me. She spent nearly 10 months inside of me, warm and growing, getting close with her mama. Now that she’s here with us, wrapped up against my chest is her favorite place to be. Her head nuzzled up against me, the sound of my heartbeat close to her listening ears… it’s her happy place.
Babywearing is so important to me. Not only does it strengthen the bond between my new baby and I, it makes life with other littles much easier. If Adair and Ingrid want to go outside, I can strap Baby Marge to my chest and make it happen. If Phil and I want to enjoy a breakfast in town, we don’t have to worry about lugging the carseat in with us. And when it comes to grocery shopping – it’s basically the only way I can do it with all 3 girls along for the ride. Solly Baby is a new-to-me company, started by the lovely Elle Rowley. I have gotten to know Elle a bit over the past few months, and she is just delightful. She, too, just welcomed her third little one to the world. Elle makes and sells the most wonderful wraps that make babywearing so easy. Solly Baby graciously sent me their grey natural stripe wrap and I have used it every single day since we came home from the hospital. It’s so cute, super cozy, and best of all – MJ loves it. She’s snug as a bug when she’s wrapped up close to my heart. All of the Solly Baby wraps are made using American factories, fabric mills, dye houses, and printers. Winning!
(I should also mention that I used a Moby wrap with Addie and couldn’t stand it. It was thick and bulky and wearing it in warm weather was miserable! My Solly Baby Wrap is a million times better!)
