Priyanka is mom to toddler Ira and hails from the Cincinnati area. She is better known as the face of The Babywearing Berries. Priyanka has been wearing Ira since she was 3 days old. Priyanka describes it as,
“I loved babywearing from the first time, Ira slept so peacefully and I was hands free.”
Babywearing quickly became part of their normal routine. Priyanka loved wearing Ira and Ira loved to be carried close to her mom. Babywearing enabled Priyanka the freedom to do normal household chores and more. She’s even walked a marathon with Ira in a carrier!
When asked how babywearing makes her feel Priyanka says,
“It gives me the patience to be a better parent.”
She describes an onbuhimo as perfect for quick-ups while on the go and shares the following words of wisdom for caregivers new to babywearing;
“Try it a few times before giving it up.”
We are so excited and honored that Priyanka has joined the 2Lambie Lambassador team and cannot wait to see where future adventures take her!
Erin is a busy mom of three on the go that hails from Canada. Erin started babywearing after the birth of her first child, Asher. Her first carrier was a sling made from “potato sack” material gifted from her sister. It was love at first wear for both Mom and Asher! He loved being worn and was really happy being snuggled-up with Mom. Erin was able to use babywearing to help Asher with his colic and to travel between home and work.
Erin’s love for wearing continued with her daughter Freya. Life with two was becoming increasingly busy, being able to do hands on activities with both kids and get them from place to place, babywearing was essential. Wearing Freya was the only way Erin was able to get the grocery shopping done.
With the addition of her third child, Jocelyn, Erin now uses babywearing even more. She’s able to bundle up Jocelyn and walk the big two kids to school. One of Erin’s most memorable babywearing moments is:
“wearing my toddler while walking the kids to school in the winter. I gear up with a babywearing sweater with a babywearing jacket on top. I put a balaclava and winter booties on my toddler. I remember one particularly icy day last year when I had to bring out the spikes for my boots. People really stare a lot when you babywear outdoors in the Canadian winter!”
Erin shares the following words of wisdom for persons new to babywearing:
"Try not to get overwhelmed by the options and technicalities of wearing. Seek out a babywearing group local to you and try out several different types of carriers. Have someone help you learn how to use them. Remember it's really just about the closeness with your baby and your ability to keep them happy and comfortable. Everything else will follow in time."
Erin’s favorite or should we say favourite tip for onbuhimo’s is:
"Have your child stand on a bed or sofa. Adjust the onbuhimo on them and then put it on like a backpack. Then adjust and tighten from there. That's a really easy way for beginners to get their onbuhimo on."
Erin moved into woven wraps with Joss and onto buckle carriers when Joss was large enough. When she heard about buckle onbuhimos and knew right away it was a carrier she needed to try. Erin always hated the muffin top from waisted carriers and also loved the idea of a carrier that allowed for her toddler to be higher on her back so she could see the world with her. The onbu (high back) carry kept Joss much happier! Erin’s favorite carrier is a 2Lambie made with a handwoven wrap. It incorporates everything she loves about babywearing and she feels like it will be perfect cherry on top of her wonderful babywearing journey. The cherished moments of your babywearing days will last a lifetime of both you and your tots.
