September is my all-time favourite. The weather is perfectly mild, the leaves are starting to turn and my husband, my eldest daughter, my uncle and my sister-in-law, all share the same birthday month. September also brings back memories of my first experience as a new mom. Every fall, the memories come flooding back. I guess that’s the way things are with your first. Becoming a mother changed me in ways I could have never imagined. I felt a love that I had never felt before. A love for a child is something that is simply indescribable.
Over the years, people have asked me what my favorite piece of baby gear and my answer is the same each and every time. For the first year of all three of my babies’ lives, I wore them in a baby carrier of some sort. During the early months, I wrapped them against me with a wrap carrier and then a couple of months later I transitioned them into a sling. As they got heavier, I wore a soft structured carrier, which I still use with my 2-year-old from time to time.
Carrying my babies calmed them (and me) and kept them warm and happy. I was able to get more done and they would fall asleep against me as I continued on with my daily chores. It was simply blissful!
