I recently chatted in the SOUL family USA facebook group about a few of the SOUL wraps I have and what I like about them. So I thought I would post a quick review about the SOUL products I own and what I love about them, and maybe what I love less about them.
There's been a lot of buzz in my community about infant to toddler carriers. Soul's solution to this need, the AnoonA has made a timely appearance in the market place. 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'm so in love with the Dreamland print that Soul and Smartbottoms have created. In addition to the Day Bag, which I will talk more about soon (spoiler: I LOVE it), we also got a pair of Soft Souls. Let me tell you, 'SOFT' is an understatement. These little shoes are so soft they are… Continue reading Dreamland Soft Soul
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.
#Fluffmail Friday! So we've had a rough week, feverish sick baby, ER visit, sleepless nights (and days), cancelled plans, BUUUUUUT fluff mail makes it all better right? 😉 I think so.
You guys! I am super excited to have recently been invited to be a part of the Soul ambassador program!
I've given in. There's no denying it now, I've officially tumbled into 'mommy blogging' territory. Instead of fighting it because of all the negativity and condescension that seems to come with that label, it is time to embrace.
Finding balance, juggling a new life, trying to find my way; these are all ways I could describe what really is just 'trying to find what works'. I often tell people I am hodge-podging together an income but in reality it feels a little more like throwing spaghetti at the wall and waiting to see what sticks.
Rucksacks and back naps! As some of you know I've gotten hooked into an amazing local babywearing community since the middle of my pregnancy. Not only are these folks super supportive and fast becoming friends but I am learning so much about wrapping, carrying, and all the benefits that go with. Right now I'm focused on learning how to back carry. Today I tried a new finish and for the last two days simply having Trent on my back has equalled pretty decent naps. My kid, the sleepless wonder for the first three and a half to four months (night or day), is napping.
Today marks the start of International Babywearing Week. This "week-long opportunity to celebrate, promote, advocate for, and focus media attention on the many benefits of babywearing" will be all over my social media and in my life. Why? Because the babywearing community is my tribe; it is where I talk to other moms, it… Continue reading Babywearing – A Mommy Essential
