"If we hope to create a non-violent world where respect and kindness replace fear and hatred, we must begin with how we treat each other at the begining of life. For that is where our deepest patterns are set. From these roots grow fear and alienation or love and trust."

Wearing newborn Dagyn

1 week old in a wrapsody
 I like to try to take as many babywearing pictures as I can, especially when the kids are newborns, just because they grow so quickly.  I am working on a blog post showing different ways to wear newborns (need to find some pictures taken over the years) but for now I wanted to share some of the ways I have been wearing Dagyn since he was born (5 wks ago if you can believe it!!).

I have recruited Xian (10) and Piper (8) to take pictures of us, as Charlie is often either not here or not in the mood to take pictures for the 100th time.  So many of these were taken by the kids.  I have been so determined to document everything that I have even had them take pictures of me sans make up (I know, shocking right?)

That is a Kozy baby!
 There is nothing better than newborn babywearing!  I mean that sweet little tiny baby cuddled up on your chest, mmmmm, I LOVE it!

Some people have expressed surprise that I use slings other than my Kozys, and it is true that I honestly do use my Kozys like 90% of the time when they are older (because I LOVE them) and I find them easiest to nurse in at any age.  But as newborns, I really like to use a variety of slings and carriers.  And there is nothing like wrapping a newborn!!

I have really been wearing Dagyn on my back a lot.  It seems more than I did with the last few kids.  He takes to it well and it is just easier when I have things to do around here like dishes or mopping where a back carry is easier.
