I live in Croatia, in a little city Klanjec near slovenian border. I'm a teacher in elementary school and a proud mother of an 18 months old boy.
Babywearing is very important in my life. It has helped me trough many challenges of motherhood (cramping, teeth, coordination of my house chores...), but most important, it helped me feel close with my baby and deepen my bond with him. Also, it helped me not to go crazy because I can catch up with everything i feel i need to. Because of my baby isn't holding me back from everything, I want and need to do. On the contrary, my baby is my companion in everything I do and is always close to me.
I tried many babywearing product. My favorite are wowen wraps. Specially woven wraps with cotton and hemp blend.
My baby is with me everywhere I go. We often go hiking, to the concert and I even brought him to work once and he slept in my back while I was teaching.
I don't think my story is something special or different from others, but babywearing is also something important during a normal day.
