I fell in love with this picture when I saw it. It reminded me of all the ways that parents have to be creative to continue to be in the world as people, while also caring for their children as parents. Baby carriers, for me, were the solution to just about every conundrum I faced of how I was going to take care of my child while I did something that was important to me that maybe didn’t lend itself to chasing a child around.
Our Friday Giveaway is for parents for whom a baby carrier still helps them be in the world more easily, and for the people who love them – if you don’t have need for a (gorgeous, by the way) new Balboa Baby sling, we hope you’ll enter anyway and give it to a parent who could use an extra hand.
It looks like this:
How do you enter?
