Mothering Magazine - Babywearing is Safe!

Please take a look at the below and keep wearing your babies close - just be sure you are using a safe sling and wearing it correctly. This is a response to CPSC Sling Warning - one of my favorite parenting magazines - they are fabulous!


Mothering Responds to CPSC Sling Warning: Babywearing Is Safe

PRESS CONTACT: Elizabeth Carovillano 505.984.6289 | Office 505.690.0040 | Cell | E-mail

SANTA FE, NM (March 18, 2010) — On March 12, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), a Federal Agency, issued a warning in regard to the use of baby slings. The CPSC asserts that there is a risk of slings suffocating infants who are younger than four months old, and that caution should be used when carrying babies of this age group in slings.

Mothering puts the CPSC warning in perspective: Babywearing is safe, but some slings and positions are not. While baby carriers are as old as civilization, modern babywearing has exploded in the last four years. Along with this rapid increase in use has come the creation of some unsafe carriers, in particular bag-style slings that have a deep pouch, excessive fabric, and an elasticized edge. These deep, bag-style slings can be especially dangerous for premature or small babies.

Some general guidelines for safe babywearing:

1. Only choose a sling that allows you to see your baby’s face.

2. Be sure baby is not curled up tightly, chin to chest. This position can restrict breathing, especially in newborns or in infants who cannot yet hold up their heads.

3. Make sure that the sling fabric is “breathable,” and keep baby’s face clear of fabric.

4. Do not press baby’s face tightly against the sling wearer’s body.

5. Position the baby’s face upward.

6. Reposition baby if there are any signs of respiratory difficulty: rapid or labored breathing, grunting or sighing with every breath, restlessness.

Great fun with kiddos!

My girls and I just finished making homemade play dough and I thought I would share the recipe. It is so easy to do and makes for a great afternoon project.

Here goes:

3 cups of flour
1 1/2 cups of salt
3 cups of water
3 teaspoons of cream of tartar (finally found a use for it - been in the pantry for years)
4 tablespoons of oil
Food coloring - full bottle for intense colors
Scented oil (optional - only if you want it to smell yummy)

Mix everything together and stir well. Mixture will be lumpy. Heat on low heat until mixture clumps together. Stir to very thick 'mashed potato" consistency. Cool 10 minutes. Dump onto clean surface and knead for 5 minutes. Store in plastic bag or air tight container. Will keep up to 4 weeks at room temperature. Also freezes very well.

Have fun and enjoy time with your little ones!

Spring has sprung at dD!

So many new things to add to the site......this is just one of them!!! I just can not get over this one. We mixed some fun spring colors with the basic knot dress for a little fun. We are in the process of creating the coordinating pant ~ can't wait to share with you all.

The headband with detachable flower is a new dD accessory as well. These are fabulous because you can get a couple of our headbands that have the fabric already stitched in to hold whatever flower looks best with your little fashionista's ensemble. We will have flowers of every color hitting the site over the next couple days!

Happy spring to all of you!
