Congratulations on being recognized as our Ambassador of The Month! How long have you been a LÍLLÉbaby brand ambassador?
Thank you so much! What a wonderful honor! I’ve been a brand ambassador with LÍLLÉbaby for 4 months.
Where are you located?
I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
How does babywearing help you in your daily life?
Babywearing helps me bond with both my children while keeping them calm and close while we do our daily chores, cooking and baking, shopping and getting outside for some fresh air.
Living in Canada, you certainly experience all seasons. What tips would you give parents baby wearing in hot or cold temperatures?
We definitely do experience a little bit of everything in terms of weather here in Canada. During the winter I find it very beneficial to wear warm layers and use a carrier cover for added protection from wind and snow. In the summer our airflows help keep us cool along with cold wash cloths in ziplock bags in the pockets, light weight clothing and hats, sunscreen, thin towels between us on hot days and humid days we add a clip-on fan. Cool treats like ice cream help as well!
Which LÍLLÉ carrier is your favorite and why?
My favorite LÍLLÉbaby carrier is the Complete Woven. It’s so soft like a cozy baby blanket, and so comfortable to wear, it feels like a big hug. The waistband and lumbar are very supportive of my back so I can wear for long periods of time. The fabric is so beautiful and iridescent. I like being able to adjust the carrier easily to carry either of my children. It also has big pockets for all my essentials.
In your opinion, how does the LÍLLÉbaby community support new and seasoned babywearing parents?
The LÍLLÉbaby Love community supports new baby wearers with everything from helping with fit checks and resources, which carrier to choose as well as the moral support that they’re doing a great job as caregivers by choosing to babywear and inspiring them to keep wearing well into toddlerhood. For seasoned baby wearers it’s the comradery and seeing new ways to wear their little ones, share tips and tricks and meeting wonderful people making amazing friends along the way. It’s a very supportive place for all baby wearers.
