Nesting Days is the only carrier that is like wearing your favorite yoga wear with the form and function of a baby carrier. Created by a postpartum doula, the Nesting Days carrier provides hands-free, skin-to-skin babywearing for babies up to 18 pounds. It uses light-weight, technical fabrics in a patented tubular design that surrounds the mother's body 360 degrees, distributing baby's weight evenly over her body. The side tie adjusts the tension over the baby's back, allowing for growth and ease of use. It is intended for use at home, with baby in only a diaper for maximum skin-to-skin contact, and to be worn over clothing when on outings.
Wearing our skin-to-skin newborn carrier boosts oxytocin levels and lowers cortisol (science talk for more love and less stress), and increases prolactin, for better milk production and greater breastfeeding success. It also promotes healthy attachment and bonding, because the nesting days are when these begin. Newborns need help regulating their own temperature (since they aren’t in that cozy womb anymore!), and mom or daddy’s skin is the perfect heater for their tiny bodies. Finally, our carrier aids in learning baby's cues, so feeding, sleeping and awake time can be more fully enjoyed.
Getting your baby in and out of the car should be easy! Your Nesting Days carrier has your back when you and your baby need to make a quick getaway!

I’m a trained postpartum doula. Because many people don’t know what a postpartum doula is or does, I usually begin by explaining what I don’t do. I am not medically trained. I do not make diagnosis, give medical advise, or administer medicine. What I do do is Nurture, Educate, Support and Transition (N.E.S.T.) the new mother and her infant...(read more)
When I was 18, a snowboarding accident changed my life forever. In December of 2003, during a ski trip with friends, another rider crashed into me, sending me toppling down the hill unconscious. When I came to, I knew something was very wrong. I was in excruciating pain, a pain as so intense I could barely speak to the ski patrollers, EMTs and nurses helping me. But one thing was undeniable. I couldn't move my right arm....(read more)
