Natural parenting is a whole-family journey.
Babywearing is just one practice that many natural parenting advocates adopt. We believe parenting is a journey that need not be separate from life itself; that the “natural” approach is one of togetherness and freedom, exploring and growing. Here, we are growing a blog that we hope helps you see and share the journey. Maybe you are part of the community of attachment parenting advocates, maybe you just love the joy of having your little one close to you, and maybe you just want to hear about how other moms are journeying through everyday life.
