It was a Sunny Saturday and we’re off to Starbucks Bonifacio Global City for a Babywearing Meet.
I encouraged my hubby to bring me there because we have a ring sling and we don’t know how to use it. So, even if it’s super out of our way and we don’t have a car, we took a cab and took that road less traveled.
Babywearing is using cloth or a similar material that you wrap around your body so mommies won’t have that hard a time carrying their babies. It’s a lifesaver indeed.
The meeting was organized by some members of the yahoogroup I belong to: Newlyweds At Work. It’s a group wherein “graduates” of wedding planning from the Weddings At Work group exchange newlywed stories, mommy stuff, and other chika.
I have the ring sling from Next 9. Bought this at SM Mall of Asia and this was the only print available:
But because of our lack of knowledge in using (and fear of using it), it ended up like this:
During the Babywear Meet, we were introduced to a bajillion types of slings and carriers and were taught how to use it. The most important with the ring sling is the threading:
Finally, after that hour and a half of demo and talk, I was babywearing Aria as we strolled Bonifacio High Street! She even slept while we’re browsing books at Fully Booked.
The sling is a good alternative to strollers. Had I mastered using this, I would not have De Quervain’s anymore.
It was an enjoyable talk with the mommies and their babies. I really hope it would have a part two!
Happy Babywearing, everyone!
I wish we had something like that when my daughter was born. We were basically stroller-dependent. Not as much fun, indeed.
