Baby Wearing: but for how long?!
Wearing Manu means that he is connected to me, but also connected to the world around as I interact with it. He gets to hear my voice and other peoples and when he wants to, he can open his eyes and peep out at what is going on but from the safety of his little cocoon. I want to include him in what I'm doing with respect.
I know that in only a short while, I won't be able to carry him like this and it is my hope that from this safe base, he will feel sure enough to explore for himself.
Were you carried a lot as a child? Were you put in a pram and wheeled around? What helps a child become a brave young person?
