Babywearing has SO many physical and psychological benefits for both wearer and baby.
There is one benefit that often is overlooked or criticized: fashion. A carrier can make you look and feel good.
A carrier is not merely a trend or fad though. It's a way to express yourself. A way to remember who you were before baby and who you want to be with a baby. A way to thread together your life.
Your favorite carrier is probably your favorite for a reason. Maybe it was your first carrier.
Maybe it's your favorite color.
Maybe it's your favorite pattern.
Maybe it's your favorite carrier type.
Maybe it fits you just right.
Maybe it suits your needs perfectly.
Maybe it's a work of art.
Maybe you wore it on a special day.
Maybe it allows you to do what you did before baby.
Maybe it completes your outfit.
Maybe it just makes you smile.
Whatever the reason might be, babywearing can bring out your beauty even on your toughest days.
Show us how your favorite carrier expresses who you are with #BWIofPDX.
