Babywearing Ballet

Babywearing Ballet

I haven’t posted about my love for babywearing quite yet so I can’t think of a better way to kick it off:

So Little h. and I had the chance to take a babywearing ballet class a week or so ago at a local dance studio. The lovely Diana over at Wrap Your Baby sent out an event about doing a photo shoot while doing ballet for the Ellaroo wraps she stocks on her site.

Here is Little h. doing her stretches prior to popping in her carseat to head to class….

There were so many mamas that wanted to do the class that we were very lucky to get in on the first one. I will state for the record that I am not a ballet dancer as most of the other mamas weren’t either. It was rather a great opportunity to bond with our little ones while enjoying the company of fellow babywearing mamas.

This graceful mama posted below in the front is wearing one of my favorites from the class, it is Ellaroo Monreau :

Babywearing is a great way to get your little one comfortable cuddled up next to you to take a little nap. Bonus, you not only can get chores done, but you also get to do fun activities like ballet!

Who says you can’t dance, babywear, and feed your baby? This mama is wearing the beautiful Ellaroo LaRae (this was one of my very first wraps)

Little h. had a great time at her very first dance class! Psalm 139 Studios Babywearing Ballet ~ lightgreenmothering.comI hope you enjoyed our little post on babywearing ballet. Maybe soon you will have it in your area as well. The lovely photos were done by Psalm 139 Studios. A local photograper who is also working on an exhibit that will be releasing soon,  about normalizing breastfeeding. (Stay tuned for a post with more details and how you can help!)

Have a great weekend!

  1. Love this, and have admired Ellaroo wraps in the past…. seeing so many in action makes it even harder to like just one! 🙂

    • Ellaroo wraps are great. Especially if you have a little one since they are thin. I like to wear my baby for long periods of time, so the ellaroo isn’t my go to for that, but I do love them for quick trips in the heat.

  2. wow you got to be a strong momma for tandem baby wearing. awesome. all the babies look so peaceful & happy. i bet none of them will ever be tantrum throwers
