This is my 7th installment of Babywearing Stories 365. Each installment features a babywearer in 1 photograph and their answers to 5 questions. My goal is to normalize, promote and celebrate daily Babywearing, moving beyond *what* we use to carry our babies and shifting focus back on *why* and *where* we carry. I hope to share the stories of moms, dads, and babywearing caregivers all over the world. Enjoy!
Babywearing Stories – 7/365
I am Gisela, and I am wearing my 20 month old, Adam. With me was my 4yo, Erik and my 6 week old, Emma.
We were at Fox Chase Farm for my 4 year old’s field trip.
Adam is riding in a Boba carrier. We were learning about how maple syrup is made and checking out the farm animals.

With having to keep track of three children (two under age two) babywearing just makes sense. I chose to wear my 20 month old because he does not like being confined to a stroller, and with him on my back he was able to see everything going on, which made him happy. Plus, he did not have the opportunity to run off, so I did not have to chase him and risk leaving my other kids unattended. My 6 week old was content to sleep in her carseat that was snapped in the stroller- she stayed warm and didn’t even wake! One of these days I will attempt to tandem wear my two little ones! Babywearing has been a part of my life for almost 7 years – I first wore my oldest when he was less than a week old!
