  1. Which Is The Best Toddler Carrier?

     

    Our Expert Picks of the Best Toddler Carriers and Preschool Carriers

     

     

    There are many different toddler carriers, so how do you know which one to choose? It's a tough decision for sure, but luckily we've got you covered with our in-depth guide.

    What is a Toddler Carrier?

     

    Toddler carriers are carriers that are specifically designed to carry older babies, toddlers and preschoolers. They are bigger versions of baby carriers, that often have reinforced stitching and extra padding.

     

    Toddler carrying is very much the same as carrying a younger baby (it's just doing it with a bigger, heavier baby). You know that you carry your toddler every day

  2. Nahui Coconi Handwoven Wraps & Ring Slings Review

     

    Nahui Coconi is the collective dream of 4 women, babywearing consultants and mothers. Their dream was to create beautiful handwoven woven wraps and spread their love for babywearing.

     

    We are honoured to bring this woman-led, female-centred brand to Europe.

     

    The wraps are not just handwoven. They are a product of ancestry, of skills kept alive, creative, innovative and artisanal.

     

     

    Woven by skilled artisans in Oaxaca, the wraps proudly reflect Mexican culture, tradition and the world around us.

     

    In order to create these traditional weaves, a special loom was manufactured, mounted at a double-width, for which a total of 2100 threads make up the

  3. Babywearing After a Caesarean Birth (C-Section)

     

    Can You Carry Your Baby In a Sling (Babywear) After Having a C-Section?

     

    The simple answer is yes! It just depends on a few things though.

     

    Whether or not you can use a sling after a c-section depends on:

     

    • it depends on you,
    • how you are feeling,
    • if there were any complications, and
    • how your wound feels.

     

    You may not feel up to it for a while (days, weeks - there’s no ‘right’ answer), and that’s absolutely fine, of course; you’re in recovery after all.

     

    When you feel ready, that’s when to start. Be gentle on yourself and always listen to your body.

     

    Carrying with a sling may be easier for you too overall, especially if you are bedbound for a while, or i

  4. Wombat Numbat Go Babywearing Coat Review

     

    I think it was Billy Connelly who said something along the lines of "there’s no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothes."

     

    Well in terms of our sort of summer (think sun, then rain, then wind, a wee bit sun, then rain again), the Numbat-Go is definitely the ‘right clothes’.

     

    The Numbat-Go is a fan-bloomin-tastic coat. I mean, it really is. It does all of this:

     

    • it’s a maternity raincoat - your bump and you will stay dry;
    • it’s a babywearing raincoat - carry your little one on your front or back;
    • it’s a regular raincoat that you can wear without being pregnant or babywearing - a raincoat with stamina that will be your go-to outdoor coat for many years to come.

     

    And it does it like thi

    Babywearing In Summer & Warm Weather - 8 Top Tips For Staying Safe & Cool

     

    Expert tips and top-picks for staying cool-as-a-cucumber when babywearing in summer.

     

    So the weather is definitely warmer and summer weather is here (fingers crossed, right?!). In the heat, it's hard not to 'glow' (my French teacher once chastised me for using the term sweat - she would always say 'pigs sweat, men perspire & woman glow'). Glowing or not, I freely admit to being a sweaty bundle in this heat - and when carrying babies in slings, you get to carry another little sweaty bundle too!
