I am an educator and New York State licensed hiking guide through the Department of Environmental Conservation. I've been leading hikes since 2014 when I founded my own hiking company called NYC Adventure Moms.
Babywearing in the woods is an incredible feeling. There's an intimate connectedness that I feel, as a mother and being surrounded by mother nature. And I've witnessed parents feeling that same sense of joy while on my hikes-it's beautiful. But when I first started there were so many questions that I had and that parents have before being willing to hike with their babies. As a new parent you doubt your decisions and worry about everything. My guidebook provides a foundation that parents can use to gain confidence in themselves and their preparations to allow room for a positive experience in nature with their children.
With your help in reaching my goal, I will be able to print 500 copies of the book and will be ready to hit the streets, fall 2018, promoting it through gear pairings in baby boutiques and bookstores through the NYC Metropolitan Area.
As a thank you, everyone who donates $10 will receive an enamel pin, $25 will receive a signed copy of the book, $50 an 8x10 print of an illustration in the book, $100 will receive a 6-12 month printed onesie, and $500 donation will receive a free tattoo by Zoe Bean herself of one of the book's illustrations.
Thank you for believing in this project and all the many benefits that spending time in nature with our children can bring!
