Being a mother of three boys under three, I knew babywearing would be my match made in heaven! Abby was right there to lend a hand, encourage me, and show me what I needed to know. I had no idea where to start! She had so many carrier options and a wealth of knowledge that was so inviting! In no time at all, my 8 month old little one was wrapped up snug and secure on my chest. Then, Abby told me, “Go, walk with a purpose.” So that is what I did. And in that time I thought, my purpose and heart’s desire in life and as a mother, is to love, to nurture, to strengthen my children, and to keep them close to my heart. And with that, I walked with a purpose, a purpose that I was confident in and within minutes my little one was asleep. I swear there has to be magic sleepy dust woven right in the fabric of the carriers! The truth is though, my little one felt every bit of my heart’s desires in that moment, and was off to sleep in sweet peace. Abby helped me feel that overwhelming since of empowerment and joy, to look down at my child and know that he was right where he needed to be and so was I. Abby, I am forever thankful for the sharing of your knowledge, your wraps, and most of all your ability to empower me as a mother and stand beside me as a friend.
As a first time mom, I found myself anxious, and looking for guidance on nearly every decision I made when it came to caring for my newborn. I was very interested in baby wearing and how it could benefit myself and my baby, but I had no idea where to begin. Abby from DixieLove Parenting Resource Consultants graciously came to my home, and educated me on the various carriers and baby wearing techniques. Abby instilled in me the confidence I needed to successfully wear my baby. By the time she left my home my daughter was happy, and sleeping peacefully against my chest in a carrier. There was no greater feeling than the freedom I felt in being able to wear my child! I also asked Abby to observe me breastfeeding to ensure my technique looked correct. She took her time with me and my infant to help us get comfortable and latched successfully! I couldn't have made it through those first several weeks without the assistance of Dixie Love Parenting Resource Consultants. Abby was truly my saving grace!
