This week I’m hosting a very popular Instagram account: Bärsjalutmaningen. It’s an initiative from three Swedish women, Sandra Wäreby, Josefin Syri and Lina Lindén. I’m looking forward to it, but I’m also very humbled. I’m just regular babywearing mum. And it’s 3167 followers!
Bärsjal means wrap and utmaning means challenge. The weekly responsible should present a challenge to which the followers can either learn or the weekly responsible can of course learn from the followers as well, because they use the hashtag #bärsjalutmaningen. It’s a beautiful dynamic process.
I’ve been thinking a lot about what my theme should be. I was thinking about summer or hot weather babywearing, because that is literally a hot topic right now. Unfortunately another person had this topic some weeks ago, so I tried to think of something else. But after a lot of though, I figured that this topic is so interesting, diverse and even hotter as the summer runs its course and people really figure out what works and what does not work. So babywearing in hot weather will be my topic after all.
My favourite carrier this summer has been my custom made onbuhimo with wrap straps from Sica Babycarriers. Therefore I’m going to focus on that, and I’ve made a video of how I tie it. I’m very curious about how other people tie their onbuhimos, podaegis and meh dais with wrap straps, and how they feel about it. Or how they cope with hot weather babywearing. I’m eager!
