John and I carried both our babies in an EllaRoo Wrap for the first year of their lives. Bouncing Boy explored the Pacific Northwest from his secure little perch, and Baby Girl we wrapped up and toted around Europe. We all loved the wrap, babies and parents alike. Babies were kept happy,warm, and close to the heart. Part of my mission in life is to share the joys of the wrap with other Mamas and Papas. I have taught several parents how to bundle up and wear their babies. Initially learning to tie the wrap can be a little intimidating, but after a few days it becomes second nature.
Sunday morning as we were getting ready to head out on a walk with our newest "Wrap Club" converts, Baby Girl asked if she could bring along her baby doll, Lisa. Certainly! Baby dolls are always welcome. Baby Girl informed me Lisa would be needing a wrap, just like Baby Maria. I was happy to oblige. I used some reclaimed sheets my friend Paul recently rescued from a dumpster. As it turns out the width of a queen sized fitted sheet is the perfect length for a Wrap for a 4 year old and her baby doll.
Baby Girl earned the nickname, "Little Mama" for the day. She carried Lisa all day long in the Wrap. She was so excited, as she put it, to have "my very first wrap!"
