About

Hi all!

I’m Nikki, the mom behind April & October. April & October is a lifestyle blog, that focuses on parenting and babywearing.

What is babywearing? Babywearing is keeping your baby close while you’re able to do daily tasks. I wear while shopping, for nap time, while taking a walk, while gardening, even school pick up. It’s been a convenient tool that I’ve appreciated so much.

Where did you learn to baby wear? My mother taught me. She wore my siblings. My grandmother also wore my mother and her siblings.

How many kids do you have? Do you wear them both?ย I have a 1 year old we call Dumpling, a 4 year old, we call Tot and an 8 year old, we call Birdie. I wear the youngest daily and Tot here and there.

This @2lambie reverse onbuhimo is our favorite when we go grocery shopping. Dumpling is high enough where she can see everything, but not quite touch anything. โฃ

I got a chance to check out @heritagedistillingโ€™s award-winning BSB @BrownSugarBourbon and it is simply delicious. Itโ€™s got that brown sugar taste with just a hint of cinnamon, which makes it the perfect drink as we transition to autumn.โฃ
โฃ
The brown sugar flavor is amazing with that bit of light sweetness. It really helps pull in those favors in cocktails. We made a Blackberry Smash (blackberries have been on sale since itโ€™s season!) and a Rickey (who doesnโ€™t love a Rickey?!). They really complemented our weekend meal.โฃ

Thank you @heritagedistilling & @brownsugarbourbon for gifting me these products! #DrinkingBSB #BrownSugarBourbon #sponsored #ad
  • I would love to be a @magnatiles brand rep! Itโ€™s one of the toys that work for all the ages and my kids get along so well when theyโ€™re playing with them. I have three kiddos - Birdie (8), Tot (4), and Dumpling (1). We reside in the SF Bay Area of California.  #2019mtbrandrep
  • Itโ€™s a new blog post! I reviewed @rabbitholehandwovens Radiant Rose up on the blog โœจ itโ€™s magical! And we were so sad to see it go. โฃ

  • Iโ€™ve been holding off on posting these @dermae products because I wanted to try them. Iโ€™ve placed them on my tattoos and on Birdieโ€™s scars from boo-boos over the summer & they work AMAZING! They keep your skin so moisturized and the scars have been fading nicely over time. My tattoos are looking nice and bright. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
