“It’s been 84 years…”
Okay, maybe not that long since my last post, but it *has* been awhile. Admittedly, it’s just been easier to post everything on to Facebook on Instagram, especially when sharing something else that strikes my fancy – especially when homeschooling, especially with a high-connection baby (now toddler!), and e s p e c i a l l y with four kids at home during a pandemic! But that may be changing, because….
…. I’m looking to rebrand. Crazy, right? Why do that, when business is slow, time is still tight, and it will take more effort to spread word of this change?
Because I believe that connecting families to the benefits of babywearing is important. Because I believe that connecting families together through babywearing is important. Because I believe that babywearing helps caregivers so much more than they know. Because babywearing can help us be a little less dead during the daily doldrum of parenting.
Perhaps because I don’t like painting rosy pictures and giving guarantees that I’ve been afraid to boldly speak out about how strongly I believe in babywearing, but I realize I don’t have to do that. With my kids, I’ve been walking them through understanding the difficulties of the pandemic without scaring them but also without giving them false hope. I need to bring that style over to my messaging, because while babywearing does not guarantee calm or a perfect day, it can help immensely once properly understood.
I also realized through seeking help in a business group that babywearing is still relatively new to most people. I have been enveloped in using carriers for the last 6 years at least, so it’s like breathing to me, but it’s very much on the periphery to many. So I’ll be getting back to basics in what I cover and discuss. If you’ve been following me on Facebook and Instagram, forgive me if posts sound too simple! There will be nuggets for you as well, but I hope these simple and basic posts will help you share babywearing with your friends and family.
So stay tuned! For the time being, I will be keeping the same website, the same Facebook page, and the same Insta handle. What will change is the tone as I put more “Ada” into Strand By Strand and less of what I think people would want out of a consultant. I hope you will join me for this ride!
On a slightly related note, I am offering a Giving Friday sale of $20 for all 1-hour video sessions from Nov 27-30. A great gift for those expecting a baby or needing to handle a baby while at home during the winter, since it’s harder to try on carriers these days!
