  1. Isara The One Baby Carrier Review

    Isara The One Review

    The Isara The One is a full buckle, fully adjustable baby carrier. It's suitable from newborn to preschool, and when we say it's suitable from newborn to preschool we really mean it!

    The weight limit is from just under 7lbs to 44lbs! It's a lovely soft carrier without feeling too bulky even with a small baby.

    The waistband doesn't feel too thick and the padding is not too stiff so sits comfortably, the width adjusts easily on a slider with velcro.

    The panel is well made with a great amount of soft padding at babies knee area, it has two hooks tucked away to attach the toddler extenders.

    The panel height is easily adjusted to fit baby with webbing, and in the same clip you can adjust the strap length as needed.

    The straps are quite narrow, more than other carriers but we find them nice and comfy, again lovely soft padding so not too

  3. Babywearing With A Toddler

    Babywearing With A Toddler

    Isara Toddler Carrier

     

    Toddler carrying is very much the same as carrying a younger baby (size aside).

    You carry your toddler every day in arms. It’s where your toddler is often most comfortable. It’s where you love to hold them, where you know they are happiest and safest.

    Using a sling to carry your toddler is an extension of carrying your toddler in arms.

    A sling allows you to carry your toddler, to continue the loving touch they need, whilst having your hands free.

    Toddler-wearing has such meaning, it’s deep bonding that lasts. Carrying a bigger baby or older child can have a profound and lasting impact on you both. It's never too late to start carry

    Manduca XT Baby Carrier Review

     

    It’s been 9 years since we first used a Manduca Baby Carrier. It was the original-style Manduca carrier, and, testament to its build quality and quality of materials, it’s still going strong today - a little faded perhaps, but everything working just the same way it did when we first opened the box.

     

    Manduca XT Baby Carrier Review

     

    The new Manduca XT is similar to the original Manduca Baby Carrier design, but with some super improvements.

    It has an improved functionality for newborns. Now

  7. Do You Love Woven Wraps? We do!

    Woven Wraps

     

    Do you like woven wraps?

     

    Have you tried or used a woven wrap?

     

    If you haven't, would you like to?

     

    If you didn't like them, what was it that you didn't like?

     

    Me, I love woven wraps. Fact. Did I always love woven wraps? Erm, well, not love, no. I had more of a determination to make them work. And as I learned how to use them and how they work, I grew to love them dearly.

     

    Oh, the anticipation as you open the box, the feel in hand at that first touch, all freshly folded.

     

    Then, like the smashing of champagne on a new cruise liner, the inaugural steam

  8. A Wonderful Week of Meh Dais

    The Didymos Didytai

     

     

    This week it’s all about meh dai / mei tai style carriers - padded shoulder, wrap-strap shoulder, combo-style, oh and half buckles too.

     

    I’m not going to bore you with exact dimensions of straps and padding.  What I am going to do is show you the dimensions - this is much more meaningful in terms of use.

     

    I’m going to use a slightly tall and solidly built 3 year old as the ‘baby’ in the carrier.  Why?  Well, it’s relatively easy to imagine a newborn or smaller baby in a mei tai, right?!  What’s not so so easy, is to imagine a big weighty toddler in them.

     

    Sure, you don’t have to keep

  9. Isara Baby & Toddler Carriers Review

    We've loved ISARA Baby & Toddler Carriers for a long time, and this is a storyboard to help show what it is we love about them. We had some truly awesome help in the shape of our 26 month old (who models the standard/baby size & toddler size size), and our 4.5 year old (just the toddler size for this chap!).

     

    ISARA BABY CARRIER

     

    The baby sized carrier can be seen in all the front-carrying photos. The key feature of the Isara is adjustability - both the baby & toddler carriers can be adjusted in the width of the main panel, and the height. You'll see what we mean in the photos.

     

    So, to the baby/standard size carrier (brief fact - suitable from 4 weeks upwards & available in wrap conversion

  10. The Didy Meh Dai Review - It Rocks Toddlers!

    Using The Didymos Didytai With A Toddler

     

    The Didy Meh Dai. Is it super-soft and snuggly for baby? Yes. Is it made from organic cotton? Oh yes. Is it suitable from newborn? Indeed it is. Can I use it with my toddler...?

     

    OK, let's tap the imaginary pause button here. This is where you'll hear different answers from varying sources. Some people will say 6 months; some 9 months; some will say 1 year; you see where I'm going with this.

     

    Well, there is no magic age that you need to stop using your Didy Meh Dai. We say use it, use it, use it!! Until you can't possibly squeeze anymore baby in! Well, not quite. But I usually respond with 'you can use it until you stop carrying'. And I definitely don't recommend squeezing
