So....How To Use an Onya?

As you know we are giving away an Onya Soft Structured Carrier this month! It's our newest brand of Soft Structured Carriers (SSC) to be offered at Elegant Mommy.

So, why two different kinds? Well, they aren't exactly alike, and we want to give our customers options, of course! :)

As you saw last week, Onya does have some differences from our existing line of Boba carriers. For one, it is able to convert to an infant chair to be used with any regular chair. Pretty handy, huh?

Today, check out two different videos on how to do a front and back carry with an Onya. Though similar to the Boba, there are a couple differences. You can check them out here!





We want you to be able to choose what's important to you in a carrier! We really do carry a nice variety, and definitely have something to meet everyone's needs.

It's a Beautiful Day!


If you live in Eastern SD, have you been outside today?

Oh, my word.

It's SO beautiful and absolutely the picture perfect vision of what a lovely fall day should be. There's some sun, wind, crispness of changing seasons, gorgeous leaves rustling around on the ground and in the trees, and a perfect blue sky.

This morning I went for a walk.

All by myself.

I truly and honestly don't remember the last time I did that. It was glorious, and fuel for my soul that was much needed.

Since I'm pretty late in my pregnancy, my emotions are going wild. Imagine that. There's nothing like waiting for "the time" when you get to welcome your sweet precious baby into the world, is there? It really is a beautiful time, if not challenging.

Going for a walk all by myself was a way to release and re-group my emotions. The fresh, crisp air did wonders for me, and just taking in God's beautiful creation was enough to really help me chill out and remember what a sacred and special time this end-of-pregnancy is.

So, Good Lord willing, there will be beautiful fall days throughout the rest of my pregnancy, and I'll be able to take lots more mind-clearing and emotion-lifting time to myself and spend it in fellowship with my sweet Jellybean and Creator.

And if not, it'll be ok. I know that I know that I know, that I certainly won't be pregnant forever, and this sweet baby will come when he/she is good and ready. God is in control!

If you need to be uplifted for any reason - late in pregnancy, early in pregnancy, kids bugging you, spouse bugging you, financial things to figure out, car issues, work difficulties, grief. Whatever may possibly be going on in your life, a little time outside in this gorgeous weather may be just exactly what you need. It sure did wonders for me today.

Much love to you, wherever you are in your journey

From Conception to Birth

Have you ever watched a video on how a baby develops in the womb?

I thought today would be a good day to share one with you. The miracle of baby-development just never ceases to amaze me. How we can start from 2 single cells and develop into what we are is just astounding.

There's a picture in here saying "Babies are such a nice way to start a human"....or something to that effect.

I totally agree!!

Enjoy......
