Meet Heitje, our featured Nesting Days Mom, and her brand new baby girl! Heitje (high-gee) lives in Arizona, where her husband Tanner is school and she works as a dental hygienist. Heitje was so thankful to receive a Nesting Days carrier as a gift to use with her little girl! She says that Brielle loves it just as much as she does.
Heitje has been surprised with how her priorities and routine have changed with the arrival of her daughter. Any new mother will agree: suddenly, your life revolves around that baby, and they dictate your entire schedule!
…Which is where a Nesting Days Carrier comes in really handy. Babies love to be held on mom’s chest, but it’s hard for moms to ignore everything else. Even though new moms cut back on housework and cooking, there are some things that simply must get done to keep a household running. Even if you don’t cook gourmet meals, you’re going to need two hands to make a sandwich. Babies create plenty of laundry, and there will always be things that need to be picked up around the house. Heitje finds that she is able to do those bare-minimum things quickly and easily when she can carry her daughter with her.
Heitje picked up one of the great benefits of her newborn carrier. Most moms know that skin to skin time is absolutely beneficial for their newborn, but feel confined by the idea of lounging on the couch all day! The real benefit of Nesting Days is that moms feel empowered to do that babywearing in a safe, comfortable, and convenient way.
Mothers like Heitje recognize that their baby is happiest when being held, and the Nesting Days carrier enables them to give their newborn that special time. Being able to get a few jobs done too is a wonderful side effect of prioritizing your newborn’s skin-to-skin needs in a Nesting Days Carrier.
