Thanks Mama Onya Baby Carrier and Gift Card Giveaway!

Lately, I've been noticing some babywearing videos and commercials where the children are being carried forward facing. It always makes me cringe. There is a breastfeeding flash mob video out that shows moms dancing through a restaurant wearing babies like this and I just want to scream! Yesterday, I noticed a commercial (I don't remember the product) where a dad is babywearing the wrong way and has women practically falling all over him. Kind of like a single guy with a puppy. He's bound to attract some women! 

The truth is, forward facing babies in carriers have no leg support and this can be damaging to their developing spines. I'm assuming that moms and dads who carry their babies this way do so because they don't know any better. So spread the word! Babywearing is increasing in popularity, which is good, but when not done properly, it is bad. Period.

Of course, in addition to keeping your baby close, which makes him or her happy, there's no discounting the convenience of having your hands free so you can actually get something done! 

I am excited to have partnered with Thanks Mama to give away the Onya Baby Carrier to one reader so that you and your little one can savor the joy and convenience of babywearing as well! In addition, you will get $50 to spend on anything you please - cloth diapers, potty training pants, wooden toys, bedding, baby care items, or nursing essentials, to name a few.

The unique feature that we love is that it doubles as a baby carrier and a baby seat for when you are out and about. It comes in beautiful, modern colors and two different materials.
