Preparing for Baby

Bear will be a big sister in about 5 months. I want her to feel very much a part of the care of the new baby when it arrives. In preparation for this, I made her a sling for her baby doll. That way, if the new baby needs to be carried in the Maya wrap as much as I needed to carry Bear, Bear can feel included by carrying her baby around too.

The sling was easy to make. I followed this tutorial roughly. Bear loves carrying her dolls in it, but it would have been better to sew the pouch in an arc, as opposed to straight across. Oh well, I’ll know for the next sling.
