A Father’s Day Poem

Do you like to Babywear- WoodlandBabiesMama:            

Do you like to babywear?

Daddy:

I do not like to babywear.

Would you like to here or there?

                                                I would not like to here or there.

                                                I do not like to babywear.

 Would you wear him in a sling?

 Would you wear him while we swing?

                                                I do not like to in a sling.

                                                I do not like to while we swing.

                                                I would not like to here or there.

                                                I do not like to babywear.

 Would you wear him in a wrap?

 Would you wear him while he naps?

                                                Not in a wrap.

                                                Not while he naps.

                                                Not in a sling.

                                                Not while we swing.

                                                I would not like to here or there.

                                                I do not like to babywear.

Would you?  Could you?

In an SSC?

Wear him! Wear him!

You will see!

                                                I would not.

                                    Could not,

                                    In an SSC.

You may like to wear.

You will see.

You may like to wear in a Podegi!

                                    I would not, could not in a Podegi.

                                    Not in an SSC!  You let me be.

I do not like to in a wrap.

I do not like to while he naps.

I do not like to in a sling.

                                    I do not like to while we swing.

                                    I would not like to here or there.

                                    I do not like to babywear.

 A pouch!  A pouch!

A pouch!  A pouch!

Could you would you in a pouch?

                                                Not in a pouch! Not in a SSC!

                                                Not in a Podegi!  Let me be!

                                                I would not, could not, in a wrap.

                                                I would not, could not, while he naps.

                                                I will not wear him in a sling.

                                                I will not wear him while we swing.

                                                I will not wear him here or there,

                                                I do not like to babywear.

Say!

In a Mei Tai?

Would you, could you, in a Mei Tai?

                                                I would not, could not in a Mei Tai.

You do not like them.

So you say.

Try them! Try them!

And you may.

Try them and you may I say.                      

                                                If you will let me be,

                                                I will try it

                                                You will see…

 

                                                Say!

                                                I like this wrappy thing!

                                                I do! I like this sling!

                                                And I would wear him in a Podegi,

                                                And in a Mei Tai.  And in a SSC.

                                                They are so good, so good, you see.

                                                So I will wear him in a wrap.

                                                And I will wear him while he naps.

                                                And I will wear him in a sling,

                                                And I will wear him while we swing.

                                                And I will wear him here or there,

                                                 Say!  I will wear him ANYWHERE!

I do so love that you babywear!

Thank you!  Thank you!

It shows you care!

Babywearing in Texas

Babywearing in Texas

Babywearing in Texas


Yep, it’s summer in Houston, and the heat is unavoidable unless we stay barricaded in our igloos (air-conditioned homes). But we can persevere; and we can babywear while doing it! Just follow these wonderful tips from our local Babywearing International President and Master Babywearing Educator, Angelique Geehan. http://babywearinginternational.blogspot.com/2012/05/tips-from-texas-babywearing-in-heat-and.html?m=1

“I do feel the need to address the ‘ice pack in the front pocket of the baby carrier’ picture that is floating around the internet. When one applies ice to an injury, the guideline is for 10-20 minutes to avoid frostbite and tissue damage. Then before reapplying, you need to wait until the area has had a chance to warm, about 45-60 minutes. Not to mention, applying ice is uncomfortable, especially to a little one. Do your kids squirm away when trying to put ice on them? Mine do! But in a baby carrier they can’t get away! So, while putting ice packs in your carrier, either in between you and baby, or in the exterior pocket sound brilliant at first glance, it is probably not the best idea (unless baby has hurt himself, in which case, might be a great way to ice his injury).”
