At First We Embrace the Idea!

At First We Embrace the Idea!

This is Sylvi, who had climbed her limber little self into the baby bassinet that is now placed in the living room awaiting an occupant. And I didn't mean her! But I think at first, before full realization of the circumstances, she embraced this new arrival.

Now I think she may be considering options. I feel as though I may benefit from joining her. Because I too am realizing what is about to happen!
I think any of us who have had previous labor experiences knows what enters your mind the days prior to the inevitable! Oh yes I want to run and hide. All of the memories of the pain and agony that Adam and Eve brought upon us!
And then for a brief moment I consider the possibility that it may not be that bad right? But thrice history has proved that yes it does hurt...a lot! So the inevitable is coming; I am panicking. Please let me hide with you Sylvi (if I fit of course). But....then I remember the amazing miracle that wouldn't be unless I endure this; I remember the moments that I look into my hero's eyes and he is helping me through and I can't wait!

So I digress...I will exit the cupboard and continue to wait for this event to come. Hopefully Sylvi will realize the same and face it head on and embrace the amazing future God has before us! So.....I'm waiting..............and waiting.....................................................................

infant support pillow

Written by Alicia Overby - Founder & President of Baby Elephant Ears

Alicia is wife, mother, and creator of Baby Elephant Ears. Baby Elephant Ears was created out of parental concern, not financial desire. In 2005, when their second child was an infant, he cried all the time and just couldn't seem to get comfortable.

After seeking advice and suggestion from the medical community and alternative medicine, they eventually ended up in the chiropractors office where their baby was successfully treated for a subluxation, discomfort most likely the result of the strain during labor, which was now being exacerbated by the normal lack of infant neck strength. Only proper neck, head, and back alignment would offer him relief. When they couldn't find a product to give their baby the necessary support, Alicia took matters into her own hands and crafted her own infant support pillow. The first Baby Elephant Ears was born!
