I did a weekend in London on my own with a 4 month old who didn’t once get stressed, upset or overstimulated. And no pram meant the tube was a breeze for me.
He’s almost 2 now and still worn all the time, I love been that parent who can go anywhere rather than the once stuck at the side with a buggy. And the library has helped me find appropriate slings and given great advice along the way. When number two is born I plan to wear them from birth, I don’t know how I coped those first 6 weeks!”
Baby wearing isn’t something I did with with my first son…but I have loved every minute of it!!! Practical, personal and precious!!!”
We started with a Caboo and a ring sling, then went onto a buckled carrier, a Mei Tai, and now use a Connecta which we love and use for back carries now.”
We have 5 children between us and having our youngest in the sling still allows us to have days out at the beach, in the woods etc without having to carry around a massive pram!
It also makes it so much easier to get stuff done around the house and play games with the other kids. Plus baby loves being so close to me or her daddy all the time!”
