We announced our second little one in early March. I used a program called RPG maker to create a 'game'' that revealed our good news at the end of a scripted sequence. Knowing that the vast majority of people would not take the time to 'play' the game, I recorded myself going through the game using a program called xsplit (local recording feature that saves the raw footage right to my computer). The 'game' was still quite long and I did as much editing as I thought I could get away with, but still it was a bit longer than I would have liked.

As a mother of just one, I doubted the benefit of an infant to toddler carrier for my already 10 month old but what I found during my week with AnoonA is that this particular carrier offers such versatility that even at this age, there is lots of room to grow and that the AnoonA could grow with us!
I don't know why I'm always so intimidated to wrap in public. But I am and always default to a buckle carrier or ring sling. It could be worry that I'll do a bad wrap job, could be worry about wrapping in the parking lot, could be worry that he'll freak and need down faster… Continue reading Rucking in Public.
