Moby wrap giveaway

Hannah is the winner! Contact us with your shipping information, Hannah and we will send that to you. Thanks everyone!

Our dear friends at La Stella Blu are offering a FREE MOBY WRAP for you, any size and color you choose.
We believe that skin-to-skin contact is essential for optimal development of bonding between baby and mama or papa. Baby wearing promotes secure infant attachment which is highly beneficial. Research has shown that secure infant attachment leads to: higher IQ (Landry et al 2003; 2006, Moss et al 1998, Crandell and Hobson 1999); greater empathy and moral development (Davidov and Grusec 1996, Kochanska and Murray 2000); better ability to cope with negative emotions (Kerns et al 2007); greater emotional availability (Easterbrooks et al 2000); greater independence (Mercer 2006); lower stress (Blair et al 2006,Uvnas Moberg 2003); and fewer behaviour problems (Moss et al 1998).

When we are working with parents who are transitioning from coercion/control methods of parenting to natural parenting, we recommend a sort of ‘attachment immersion’ program which includes as much touch and connection as possible. The results are profound.

Well, back to the giveaway! To be eligible, simply comment below. Remember, you can ASK US your parenting question and receive free coaching!

Thanks and good luck! We’ll be drawing for the winner this weekend and will post results here.

    Is there a book/program that you recommend for parents that encourages attachment parenting and gentle discipline> For the most part, my husband and I agree on how to parent our daughter, but lately, the disagreements have been increasing and I’m looking for some guidelines that can help bring us together.

    Thank you!

    Hi Hannah:
    We are getting lots of interest in the co-parenting issue!, so we’re putting together an on-line class. So, that’s in the future, and as for now, we recommend Unconditional Parenting by Alfie Kohn. You can also check our website on the Resources page for lots of other books we recommend. And of course, there is always coaching, either by email or phone. Email coaching is only $65/month.
    I hope this helps and wish you much love. Remember that you modelling the gentle way of parenting is very powerful for your partner.

    Oh wow! I think Hannah read my mind! 🙂
    As our son gets older, we seem to be increasing in the disagreements about how to parent him.
    I liked your last sentence, Kris. I’m trying hard to model gentle parenting for all of our sakes. 🙂

    i couldn’t be a mom without a wide variety of baby carriers 🙂 i just used one again tonite when owen, almost 2, was having a tough time and i needed to make dinner. so we put on some rafi, put owen in the ergo and between dancing and cooking everyone’s needs were met!!!

    funny to read heidi’s comment
    we just pulled our well loved ergo out again and me and my almost 2 year old larkin have been using it almost every day after a few months of break
    it was the only way that baby could fall asleep for a long time
    i’m looking forward to trying the moby wrap with baby #2 (as yet unconceived)
    it seems really great for the newborn phase
    loving watching the two blogs evolve and loving those pictures

      I just know that larkin’s new baby is on it’s way… a spirit floating around out there wanting YOU.

    My children are 16 months and 3-1/2 years and I am frequently using a sling or mei tai to carry one of them. My husband has a sling, too. It’s made of a print of his favorite NFL team; he insisted on it when I was pregnant with kid #2 because he knew kid #1 would still want to be carried. Yeah for daddy baby-wearing!

    How old or big does a baby get until you can stop using the infant carrier in the ergo carrier?

    • 9. klaroche  |  February 13, 2009 at 4:35 am

      I’m still carrying my almost 4 year old. Especially helpful when another baby comes along, during sick periods or emotional upsets, or when your child has been out there in the world trying on independence and just needs to come back “home” for awhile, because you are the safest place in the world.

    this one has been a challenge for me, remembering that I don’t HAVE to comment on everything Asa does. And, in fact, he seems to continue with projects or activities for a longer time when I don’t comment. I catch myself ready to say “good job” all the time though! it’s almost compulsive!

    I was just talking with a friend about a Moby Wrap tonight…little baby boy is getting closer and closer to arriving….

  • 12. Joanna Smetanka  |  February 13, 2009 at 8:48 pm

    funny, I just realized that I was commenting in the wrong place! Ha! So, yeah, carriers, love ’em. I wouldn’t have been able to have my guys at the shop with me without my ergo. I’m realizing I need another one! ANd those moby wraps just seem like the perfect newborn carrier. oh newborn babies, so so sweet.
