We love this photo. It’s beautifully honest.
You know those gorgeous babywearing photos, where the light is perfect, and baby is carried all snug and peaceful by a wearer who has a serene, peaceful countenance. You'll have days like this too, where everything is perfect, baby is in a great mood, and you wrap them or put them in the sling without any fuss. But your every day babywearing experience won't be like that. The photo above is the reality of a baby in a sling.
There will be times when you're flustered, and baby will be uncooperative, but don't let that put you off! It is these moments that make babywearing wonderful - you are in the moment, living and breathing it, and doing the best for your little one. You are holding them, giving them that much needed physical connection, that vital touch, because, at the end of the day, to carry is human & it is love.
We've all been there, we've all done it. Honestly, I've been headbutted more than once, and had my nose bit too. In these moments you question what you're doing, whether or not it's the right thing to do. But just remember, it's all worth it. You're doing your best, and it's worth it in the end.
