Today we are talking baby carrying. We all understand that baby carrying is convenient while out and about, but what is the significance behind the sensation? What you may already know is that baby wearing promotes an intimate connection between parent and baby, but what does it really do? According to experts, baby wearing is deemed one of the most important factors in your child's development. Dr. Sears suggests that babywearing is essential for up to 9 months after birth and can help promote the following for your little one:

With TWO littles now, I'm more in need of assistance. This wrap is my little helper when it comes to getting things done. I can wear baby as he naps snuggly against my chest so I can do chores, help Kai, and have a free hand!
When I had Kai, I couldn't find a sling I loved or one that felt comfortable enough to wear, so I just resorted to the Ergobaby carrier. However, it was bulky and didn't meet my needs in regards to comfort, ease, and style. Being introduced to a sling that ACTUALLY looked good AND felt good on was huge!
Perfect for Fall- the CLAY WRAP boasts a beautiful burnt orange color that is sure to get all the looks this season! It sounds so salesy but it's true! The moment I put this on, I was instantly in love. The fabric is soft and stretchy and also feels lightweight. Other wraps tend to feel heavy and hot to me. The bamboo in the fabric helps it breath and keeps baby snug and cool.
In need of help and wanting support from other mamas? That's where Chekoh Chatter comes in- a Facebook group dedicated to all things Chekoh and helping parents alike with their Chekoh questions and to help one feel connected to a mama community. How neat is that!?

What is a solar eclipse?
If you're like me, you may not fully understand what a solar eclipse is and all that it entails. Before Monday, I wanted to freshen up on my solar eclipse knowledge, starting with my understanding of a total solar eclipse. According to NASA's website, a total solar eclipse is when the moon passes between the Earth and the sun, completely covering the sun.
