We’re thankful for…
You. You add substance and purpose to our efforts on a daily basis. We’re here to foster great experiences for parents and babies. Your contribution, be it via Facebook, Twitter, phone or e-mail, makes a difference and influences our brand. We like to hear when we’re doing right by you and also appreciate the opportunity to make things right if we’ve had an off moment. Thanks a bunch for supporting and hanging out with our brand – it really means a lot.
The Givers. We’re thankful for some really cool folks that have made some big and meaningful events happen this year. First we continue to be inspired by the Saving tiny Heart Society who give their time so selflessly to further research and treatments for adolescent congenital heart defects.
We also want to thank all the Mom Central test-drive mamas who’ve taken our products into their homes and joined us at our pre-BlogHer playdate. We truly appreciate the time you take to test our products and share your family experiences. Your work means a lot to us.
We can’t thank Kelle Hampton and all the Casting Call families enough for helping us with our Everybody Plays campaign. It was such an inspirational and important event that we’re eager to continue building on for years to come.
Family Infantino. Though our products may be sold coast-to-coast and internationally, we’re actually a small-but-mighty group of folks. And on the whole, minus the missing Diet Coke you know you left in the fridge, we feel lucky to be able to work with each other daily.
To everyone we wish the happiest of Thanksgivings.
I’ve gotten pretty close to Infantino’s new Sync Carrier in the last few months. I was able to snag one in early August from our Product Development peeps and it has been my right-hand-wrap ever since.
I would classify myself a frequent babywearer and I’m pretty demanding on the collection of carriers I own. I do a lot of errands on foot, am not a fan of carrying awkward car seats and don’t like the idea of loading strollers in and out of my car. I also do a bit of traveling with my two young kids.
I think it’s important to tell a little bit about myself because babywearing is an incredibly personal experience. I’ll be the first to admit that it’s not a one-carrier-fits-all world. That being said, the Sync is a perfect option for me, and here’s what made it such a simpatico choice…
For me the Sync was a great infant hold carrier. The panels are woven with just a touch of give and the resulting fabric kept my son really close and tight to me. Once he was in I didn’t have to tighten or adjust. The straps are stretchy, soft, and non-intrusive, and are incredibly simple to tie.
On a more emotional note, the closeness the Sync provides actually makes me feel pregnant again. I find myself rubbing the bump my son creates and experiencing the sense of calm and serenity I had in the months before he was born. Total connection.
My Quick List of Loves
I can roll it up and pop it in my diaper bag.
The comfortable lumbar support belt.
I can easily do a hip carry (though I prefer a front carry).
I can comfortably sit in it.
It is gosh darn pretty and trendy to boot!
When I Might Not Use It
If I need to remove it quickly – airport security, busy parking lots, etc. In those cases I tend to go with our Support carrier.
If I am going to be in an especially dirty place where the straps might touch the ground.
If my husband plans to take a turn carrying the lil’ man.
