So, you just found our your pregnant. Congrats! The only downside is you have to wait until 20 weeks to find out the gender! We bet you're dying inside, trying to guess what it might be. People are probably sharing all sorts of wisdom with you- how you're carrying, what you're craving, if your morning sickness has acted up or not...and all sorts of other ways to guess your baby's gender.
Let us share our own words of wisdom: The Chinese Gender Chart. Legends have it that the chart was buried in a tomb outside of Beijing, China over 700 years ago. But the best part is it is said to be over 90% accurate. Pretty cool, right?
Baby wearing widely discussed these days. Besides your group of mom friends, there are organizations and committees that focus solely on baby wearing that you can be a part of.
One carrier that has set the bar high is ERGO Baby- an ergonomic carrier that is comfortable for both the baby and you. We promise you will be pleasantly surprised with the ergonomic design. All the weight from the carrier and the child is placed on your hips
and around your mid-section, so you won't have should, neck or upper back
pain even if you carry your baby all day long. What a blessing!
The ERGO Baby carriers come in a wide variety of fabrics (including a breathable mesh and organic cotton) and patterns. Speaking of patterns, we have just been informed that Petunia Pickle Bottom has partnered with ERGO Baby to offer three of their adorable patterns on ERGO Baby carriers! We got a sneak peak of the new patterns and they look absolutely precious! You can catch a glimpse of them on our Facebook page. They will be ready to ship in June 2011.
ERGO Baby allows you to carry your child from birth up to approximately 40lbs. Depending on baby's age and your comfort, you can carry your child in three positions: a front carry, side carry, and a back carry. Detailed instructions are provided with each ERGO Baby carrier so you can become a pro at carrying your child in all different positions!
ERGO Baby carriers are machine washable and fully adjustable. You'll be grateful for that when your 5' self and your 6'5" husband want to take turns carrying the baby!
To give you an idea of just how easy it is the wear and adjust the ERGO Baby carrier, we've put together a quick video tutorial. Come by and see us anytime to try them out for yourself, and get a feel for the carry you like best.
