Banishing Hip Pain with DIY Hand Dyed Woven Wraps

Who:
My name is Guinevere Sande and I am wearing my 15 month old son Jameson in this photo. We were with my mom and my 3 year old daughter Brielle.

Where:
We were visiting the San Diego Zoo for the day.

What:
I am using a size 6 linen wrap that I self dyed using a low water immersion technique. I recently switched to using woven wraps almost exclusively because of hip pain from using an Ergo. I love to wear my kids and I didn’t want to stop because of joint conditions! So I chose to do the research and switched to woven wraps. I do have some name brand wraps, but I enjoy making and dying my own wraps because it is more cost effective and unique to us.

Why:
We were just leaving the zoo here and Jameson was being extra cuddly. He had had a grumpy day and the only thing that made him happy was being front wrapped on momma. I actually regretted not bringing a second shorty wrap and being about to tandem my daughter in a ruck because she was getting tired too. In general, I babywear because it keeps my kids happy and makes me a saner mom.
