It’s International Babywearing Week!

I have carried Joss since she was a tiny dot, here she is in our first sling, a Babasling, at 3w old

I loved the closeness and hands free aspect in the early days, and carrying a toddler in a sling makes a lot of sense too, great for tired little legs and lovely sleepy cuddles on the go.  They’ve seen us through poorly days, tired teething days and shopping days as we don’t have a car.  I don’t have a ‘stash’ – some people have tens of slings, we have three, a warm winter woollen, a carrier and a cotton summer sling, whether you use a big supportive length of fabric, or one of many in a stash, the benefits to carrier and carried are many and varied.  Do you use a sling? I’d love to hear your experiences!

And finally, this made me smile, Happy International Babywearing Week, keep calm and carry them!

  1. My son is 7 months old and we have a stash, a rapidly growing stash! I’ve currently got 12 carriers and 2 more on pre-order. I’ve gone from being a make up hoarder to collecting baby carriers!
