Why You Need A Baby Carrier Wrap

The last few weeks have been quite the adventure with our new little lady at home. Mackenzie and I finally feel like we’re getting the hang of things as new parents, though we know we still have a ways to go before we can call ourselves pros (but does anyone actually get to a point where they feel like they 100% know what they’re doing??). We’ve been much more active lately and taking Honor on more outings, and one of our favorite ways to bring her with us has been with our Newbie Love wrap.

When we’re going for a quick outing like a coffee down the road, we’ll leave her stroller at home and wrap her up nice and snug when we get her out of the car. As you guys know I did tons of research before giving birth to her, and I had read about the need for newborn babies to be physically close to their parents as much as possible. Research shows that babies’ brains develop the best when stimulated by our voice, smell, movement, and skin-to-skin contact. Carrying your baby on your body so closely gives them all of that at stimulation once, making them feel safe and secure as you step out into the world together. This wrap also has a padded neck support, which supports baby’s head as their neck muscles continue to develop. Most babies can’t support their own head until around 4 weeks old, and can’t properly hold it up in a sitting position until around 4 months, so it’s important to have this extra support during this time.

Newbie Love was kind enough to share some tips with us on the best way to use your wrap. They encourage the ‘TICKS’ method for keeping your baby safely secured. Check out this video for further instructions!

T. Tight against the body (so baby doesn’t slump down)
I. In view at all times (don’t cover over the baby’s head)
C. Close enough to kiss the top of baby’s head (not low down)
K. Keep chin off chest (easier when firmly supported)
S. Supported back (again, this helps by a tight wrap).

    I’m just curious if you’ve used any other wraps? I am torn between getting something like the cheeko or getting this newbielove one. Do you find as she gets older/bigger that you are still able to use the newbielove carrier? I am just concerned that it is for teenie newborns only & trying to gauge the longevity of the product.

  • Does anyone else own a scrapbook?! 📚🤣If you don't necessarily consider yourself to be an 'artistic' person but still enjoy getting creative, you've got to try scrapbooking! I've been doing it ever since I was young (and even kept a wedding inspo moodboard secret from Mackenzie for a few years before we got engaged, lol) - and it's such a fun, easy way to express yourself.

  • Happy Mother’s Day!
I want to dedicate this post to one of my dearest friends, who became a Mummy to premature surrogate twins this year, only to tragically lose them a few hours later, as she held them in her arms. My friend had been through years of trying for a baby through IVF, and finally - after years of hope and patience - we all felt her and her husband’s dream of becoming parents was about to come true.
That heart-breaking day also happened to be the date Honor was born, so the poignancy was all the sharper. I still remember the moment I learned the news. My own mum was with me, and we wept silently, hugging. 
I fully expected my friend to avoid Mackenzie and I for a while, to deal with her grief. Surely being around a newborn would just be too much. But testament to her angelic, brave character, she asked to come over. I’ll never forget the warmth and love in her eyes as she held Honor tight. She said she was full of hope. She said that the twins would be watching over, helping and guiding them on their continued journey to have a baby. 
You’d think that would be enough to focus on, but no. Instead, this wonderful couple decided to set up @pompomsandstardust , a charity not only raising money to help other people have surrogate children, but one that offers crucial (and lacking) advice and support to the ‘IP’s’ (intended parents), along their journey. 
If you or your loved ones have been through a difficult time conceiving, my heart goes out to you- I wish you strength, perseverance- and please feel free to share your story below.
The charity website will be up soon with more information, but for now follow @pompomsandstardust 💫
