Real Mom Talk: Why I Love Babywearing
March 4, 2016 10:06 am | by
thumbnail-6

  When I started working at Cotton Babies, I knew absolutely nothing about cloth diapers, babywearing… really, anything about babies. But it sure didn’t take me long to learn! In no time, I memorized the names and colors of every cloth diaper we sold and became increasingly excited to one day cloth diaper my own baby. The interest in babywearing followed soon after. I’d watch and chat with ladies around the office wearing their babies (yes, we bring our babies to work), I’d research the carriers we sold, I’d scroll through the Flash Mob and see photos of all the different carriers

 
Our Employees Bring Babies to Work… and We Make it Work

Returning to work after maternity leave can be one of the most bittersweet parts of new-parenthood. You have this awesome new little person that you’ve snuggled with for weeks or months and the thought of leaving him or her for 8 hours a day is heart-wrenching.  But maybe you can’t imagine giving up the career you’ve worked so hard for or you can’t afford to stay at home with your child.  Whatever your situation, you are now facing the work-world once again. This isn’t an easy task, emotions aside.  Whether you’re returning to work after a few weeks, months, or
