Reason of the Day to Babywear!

Because the grow up too fast!!!

I never understood how 'adults' always said this until I had my little E. Soon, she will be to big to hold, carry, sit on my lap etc. So I am going to maximize our cuddle and close time while I can! And you should too. Enjoy your little ones while they are - well - little!

Please follow us to recieve all updates, and let us know if you are interested in borrowing/trying any carriers, or need any help!

Happy Babywearing!!

Hi Babywearers

Hi all!

Our lending library is GROWING!! On Friday I got in the mail two more Mei Tai's with extra long straps, so they will work for our plus sized mamas too! I'm so excited to be able to offer you all different carriers to try and borrow to see what works for you and your baby!

If you are interested in borrowing anything in between meetings, please just comment here, or email us at! We ask a $2/week donation to fund the purchasing of carriers.

And... the reason of the day to babywear....


This picture is of my husband wearing our daughter, while texting and drinking a coffee on UWO's campus. He was caught by the student newpapers camera man! I LOVE this picture! It's like a where's waldo for babywearing.

Thanks for a great first meeting!!

This morning was a great success! I lost count at 17 mamas!!! (plus loads of babies and toddlers and bellies!!)

I want to put out a BIG thank you to Jodi at Life with Baby for allowing us to use her space, and putting up with the chaos of our first meeting!

We are planning on meeting every 2 weeks. On meeting being a social, the next a more structured meeting to play with new carriers!

If there is anything you want to try/borrow, let us know. Our library is ever expanding. I just got home to mail - two plus size mei tais!

Thanks again

Reason of the Day to Babywear!

LOADS of snuggles!!! Especially as baby gets older, they are often too independent and 'busy' to snuggle. But they still loved to be wrapped up! That way you get some lovely snuggle time, and no one can take them off of ya!! My mum or sister always like wearing my daughter, because then they get exclusivity of her for a while!!

Here is my sister wearing my little one when she was about 2 months old!

Happy Babywearing - and enjoy your snuggles!!

Don't forget Friday is our meeting!!

Lending Library

Good news mama, our lending library is GROWING! And we are LISTENING to your needs! We have bought (some are still in the mail)

  • Several pouch slings
  • Several Adjustable pouches
  • Small and large Ring slings
  • Size 6 and size 5 woven wraps
  • Three Mei Tais
  • Two PLUS SIZED Mei tais
We are specifically hoping to add a buckle tai/soft structured carrier and more wraps (stretchy, gauze or woven) to our lending library. So if you would like to donate to us, or can sell for cheap, we would love to hear from you! We could also look at a trade from our existing carriers!

Looking forward to seeing you all next week. We will have all the carriers with us to loan out! We will be asking a $2/week minimum donation for borrowing carriers. All this money will be going towards growing the library and the program.

Reason of the day to babywear

Reason of the Day to Babywear!

Because babies that are worn cry less! Some research suggests that babies who are worn cry up to 54% less than babies who aren't. And who couldn't do with less crying and more happy babies!!??!!

Here is a goofy pic of my happy baby being worn by daddy as we are about to go out in the cold!!

Hi Babywearers,

So our first meeting will be Friday April 15th from 10am-12pm. It will be at Life with Baby 256 Central Ave (Just east of Richmond on Central). There is free parking on one street north (Hymen) and on Central just east of Wellington. There is meter parking in front of Life with Baby.

We are planning every 2 week meet ups. One will be a more 'formal' meeting where we will use the LIfe with Baby space to practice carries and chat! The next meet up will be more of a 'social' but we will meet outside Life with Baby, then go for a walk/coffee.

Please let me know if I've missed anything, or you need more information!

Reason of the day to Babywear


It is so much easier to shove a wrap in my bag then to lung around a stroller. When the kids are up in the wrap it makes shopping so much less stressful. The kids can't grab and pull everything off the shelf.

Reason of the day to Babywear

They are so pretty!!!! when you have a stroller you get just one stroller and they are pretty boring but with wraps you can have a couple for the price of 1 stroller. When you get bored of the wrap they are easy to trade/sell to get new ones there are so may styles/materials you will never get bored of wrapping!!!!

currently I have 3 woven wraps and 4 comfy joey ring slings and I have a NMMT on the way!!!!!

Reason of the day to Babywear

Daddy snuggle time!!!!! being the primary caregiver of our 2 kids it is so nice that my husband can throw on a wrap and get some snuggle time and sooth a fussy kid.

This picture was take when we were at a friends birthday party and our son just over 1 at the time needed a nap so Cam put him in the wrap and he fell asleep instantly.
