This is my 26th 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 26/365
This photo is of me (Lizzy) wearing my 7 month old daughter Eleanor, and my sister Jessica wearing her 4 month old daughter Juliana. We were surrounded by lots of family; our mom, husbands, my sister’s son (my nephew), cousins, and aunts.
We were in the backyard at my cousin’s son’s forth birthday party down at the Jersey shore!
My sister Jessica is wearing a black Baby K’Tan. I am wearing a size 6 Girasol in Forest Berries. Juliana was fast asleep; Ellie was hanging out with me enjoying the family from afar (she’s going through a social/separation anxiety phase). It was colder than expected that day, so we were definitely enjoying the warmth of Babywearing. We were listening to the Sandy Relief Concert on iTunes, an appropriate soundtrack for the first time we had all gathered at my cousin and aunt’s house since Sandy flooded their property. I love being around my family and cuddling with my daughter, so I was feeling very content! =)

Jessica was wearing Juliana because she needed a nap and we all know that most carriers have some sleepy dust in them. 😉 I was wearing Eleanor because it was starting to get cold, and she was cranky and wanted to be in mama’s arms. =)
