All the Baby Mamas ....

Oh this is just too funny. Here's a song put to good use with a great message. Often times you see little 'uns in their prams screaming blue murder in the shops, and the mothers looking stressed hoping they'll go to sleep. Taking a sling with you is a great tip! Happy baby - in pram. Lonely baby - in sling. William & Martha Sears talk about '9 months in the womb - 9 months out' in terms of baby-wearing. It sure made the early months of parenting easier (and cuddlier) for us.

I didn't do in high heeled shoes and lycra, though .....

I'll never be able to sing the original lyrics again!



Baby wearing is great for dads, too. I can't wait for the sequel ... "All the Baby Papas" ...

Did you mean to say "Happy baby in pram, lonely baby in sling" or the other way around?

Great blog!

It's a case of the homicidal panda, I think - 'eats, shoots and leaves'. What I meant to say is so long as bub is content, she can go in her pram but if she gets lonely and needs to be closer, you can pop her in the sling and she'll soon be happy again. By that I mean, I wouldn't put my babies in the pram unless they were content to be there. Hope that helps! Thanks for your comment.
