Trimming the Doors

This is my 19th 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 Story 19/365

Who:
This is a picture of me wearing my 1 month old daughter Mercy Claire. My husband and I were at a friend’s house helping them paint before the moved in.

Where:
Our family was helping our friends paint and finish last minute renovation details on their new home in western Florida.

What:
Mercy was having a great time watching mama and daddy paint but when she was nearing nap time, my little girl wanted nothing else but to be held by mama. I didn’t want to sit around and watch everyone else work while I held my sleeping baby, so I wrapped her up in our sling and she snoozed while I painted the trim on the doors. We have several slings, but the one here is just a cheap one I bought on a whim on amazon. It’s called “Lite On Shoulder”. Even though I prefer our Maya Wrap Ring Sling, I chose to use the Lite On Shoulder because if I ruined it with paint I wouldn’t be devastated! Mercy is now 1 and I wear her all the time in her ring sling, although now she sits on my hip like a big girl instead of snuggled up like she used to as an infant.

When:
April, 2012
