Baby wearing with your first child is such a sweet experience. You really try to soak in all the benefits of baby wearing while soaking up every last newborn snuggle you can. Baby wearing with your second child is a necessity. God only gave me two hands, which are usually busy with a 2 year old tea party, or keeping said two year old’s fingers out of my newborn’s eye balls. Not only are my hands free, but my newborn’s eye balls are safe, and I still get to soak in all the benefits that baby wearing has to offer.
I’m a baby wrap kind of girl. I don’t know what it is, some people swear by ring slings, or traditional backpack carriers, but I like snugness that a wrap has to offer. I’ve had my fair share of wraps with having two babies and I often find that fabric is too thick, there is just way too much fabric in general, or the fabric doesn’t posses enough elasticity to really feel comfortable. I know, it makes you wonder why I even like wraps, but it’s kind of like car shopping. You’ve got to test drive a few before you really find the one you love, and that’s how I fell in love with Hope Carried.
When Brea approached me about working together, I was a little nervous. Like I said, wraps are tricky, it’s got to be the right one. So, I shopped her sight, and the moment I read the description of her wraps I was sold. She had me at the word “breathable.” If you’ve ever worn a baby wrap you know how much “breathable” needs to be a part of it’s functionality, especially in the summer. In addition to the description, I fell in love with all the rich colors she offered. They were all so beautiful. I went with the Cobalt wrap for Rowan and it is just as beautiful in person as it is in pictures. The color is stunning, and the fabric is nothing short of luxurious. It is so soft, y’all. It is also very lightweight and yes, even breathable. It’s so nice to be able to wear Rowan on a hot day and not worry about overheating him because I crammed him into a super thick fabric.
Providing consumers with a quality wrap is just the beginning of Hope Carried. They also work to provide employment to women who otherwise can’t gain employment due to lack of education or cultural restrictions. Hope Carried teaches these women to help create their high quality baby carriers while allowing them the opportunity to provide for their families. I love shopping and supporting a company that gives back to the community.
