Serena marinello, EDUCATOR
I have one boy, 3 ½ years old.
Babywearig is important to me because it saved by sanity when my son was a newborn with reflux. It was the only way for me to have some hands free time when home alone and out and about in the community.
I decided to volunteer for NYBabywearing because I wanted to give back to the community that helped me so much in those early days. Baby carriers can be intimidating to some and I wanted to help others become confident in wearing their baby.
I usually help coordinate the Yonkers meeting. While I don’t have so many ‘ups’ these days, being outside with a non-walker and being able to navigate hiking trails was always my favorite activity to do while babywearing. When I’m not babywearing, I can usually be found reading a good book, watch trashy reality television and cooking with my family.
