5 Reasons to Babywear + LILLEbaby Baby Carrier Giveaway!!


 On Me:  Dress c/o // Sandals //
On Leighton :  Dress c/o // Sandals // Bow c/o // Baby Carrier c/o

Babywearing has been one of my favorite parts of motherhood since day one.  We started out with stretchy carriers, and then at 6 months, we finally got a LILLEbaby, and I've been hooked ever since!  You might remember our first LILLEbaby here when Leighton was 7 months old.  A lot has changed since then, but our love for babywearing hasn't.  Granted, Leighton likes to face out or be carried on my back, but she still likes being just as close to me as ever.  As she got older, I thought my babywearing days were numbered, but she doesn't seem to want to stop just yet, and that's fine by me!

Babywearing was never really a question for me; I just knew I wanted to do it from the beginning.  But in case you need a little motivation, I've rounded up my 5 favorite reasons to babywear.

1.)  Close enough to kiss is how you want to wear your baby.  Is there any better reason to babywear than to have your baby cuddled up on your chest when wearing them?  It also helps soothe baby more which usually means less crying.  Win win!
2.)  It makes breastfeeding SO much easier.  And it's also pretty dang discreet.
3.)  Babywearing burns calories.  Toting all that extra weight of a baby around really does burn more calories.  That mixed with breastfeeding and healthy eating helped me to lose my 38 lbs in about 4 weeks.
4.)  Hands free.  We as women are usually wired to multitask.  Babywearing makes you hands free so you can multitask to your heart's content.  But personally, if I could go back, I would use all that hands free time to just sit there staring at my baby.  The dishes can wait.  = )
5.)  It is so much easier and more convenient than toting around a big stroller everywhere you go.  Is it just me or are the aisles at kid's clothing stores not even wide enough for strollers?!

The embossed carriers are some of my favorites because I think the designs really take the carrier up a notch.  I think it would be perfect for dressier outfits as well.  And it is so soft and lightweight.  I have the citrus colored carrier, and it is perfect for a fun pop of color!  LILLEbaby is still my favorite soft structured carrier, and I'm excited to be teaming up with them to give away a baby carrier to one lucky reader.  To enter, just use the rafflecopter widget below.  What color and style LILLEbaby is your favorite?
