Welcome to Mumaroo

The importance of seeking professional advice for your sling or baby carrier -   Quite often expectant parents find themselves bombarded with advice from everyone from family members and work colleagues to friends. This is particularly prevalent for first time parents! And whilst lots of this advice can be with the best of intentions and well meaning it can very quickly become confusing especially when receiving conflicting advice ... Read more

Why book a one to one appointment?

There are loads of advantages to booking a one to one appointment! Here are some of the main benefits:

• Time! A one to one gives you enough time as you need to work at a pace suitable for you and your baby. Home visits are never rushed and there is plenty of time to discuss individual needs or any concerns / worries you may have

• Membership benefits! When you have a one to one with us you become a lifelong member of Mumaroo meaning you are no longer required to pay deposits when visiting our drop in sessions. Bonus!

• Tailored advice - this is particularly useful for parents who are nervous or for anyone with additional medical requirements as we have the time to discuss these in detail and tailor the session to you

• Flexibility- booking a session at a time that suits your family means that working partners can be involved. It also means you can work it around baby’s naps at the best time for your family. Older siblings are very welcome to be involved too.

• Back carrying - during one to ones you are able to learn how to safely back carry your baby or toddler.

•Comfort! I come to you in the Mumaroo van with all the slings we will need. Being in the comfort of your own home means not only are you more relaxed but so is your baby - free of distractions of a busy setting

After mastering (to a degree!) Front and hip carries Korrin At Mumaroo came to us and was so patient with us learning how to back carry. That time spent in the unrushed comfort and relaxation of our own home was invaluable 💚

Our 1-1 bump to babywearing session was fantastic. Korrin explained it all so well and took the time to let me practice with the doll so I was completely confident to babywear straight away. I’ve taken Alani out in her sling from her being 4 days old for walks with the dogs. She settles so quickly in it and we use it all the time, from dog walks to supermarket trips and around the house making lunch! My husband attended part of the session too and has recently confidently had her in the sling too!x

Couldnt reccomend the one to one enough! I tell everyone who is expecting a baby to book one as it was brilliant for us and we got to have max in the sling from day 1 xx

I had my first one-to-one 2 weeks before my little girl was born, it made me and my partner feel comfortable using the stretchy straight away as Korrin took the time to show us how to use it safely. This is how our babywearing journey started and we have now fallen in love with the use of woven wraps. A few months later we had our second one-to-one to practise back wrapping and this was definitely needed.It's all about feeling safe and confident so it was definitely worth spending the money and the support you get all year long is priceless ❤Thanks Korrin At Mumaroo and the Mumaroo team!

TWO LEFT AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE AT THIS BARGAIN PRICE

At Mumaroo we have a wonderful community of parents who share a gentle ethos. I’ll post a link to our groups in the comments.

I recently overheard someone having a conversation about gentle parenting(I was ear wigging)

One said the following:
“I’m not sure why there’s a need to say they are being gentle- it’s just parenting! What’s the difference?!”

Well I wish there wasn’t a difference but unfortunately following a gentle parenting ethos is still really rare - it’s easy to forget this sometimes when you surround yourself with like minded people.

It’s still very common to hear of “the naughty step” being used. And by no means am I pointing the finger at parents who use this and blaming or judging them. It’s not the fault of individuals it’s a society that accepts this as normal and even makes tv programs out of it that’s the problem. Teaching any child that when they feel emotional, angry or upset to sit on a step or away from family until they have learnt to suppress that emotions is not what we need to be teaching them to do from such an early age.
I worry about the mental health of all
of my children but I have to say I worry about my boy more. Why? Because no matter how much I’ve tried and tried to never say these things to him ALL of them have been said to him by other people around him:

“Don’t cry tears are for girls.”
“Man up ... come on men don’t do that”
“You can’t wear that headband/ princess dress up/ nail polish it’s for girls “
“You’re SUCH a boy”

I think back to when I was a teenager too and the males I knew. The expectations for a lot of them was to go in the forces or choose a “manly” job like welding. One of the worst things they could be.... gay! I specifically remember a friend of mine being asked if he was gay several times a week like it was the worst thing he could be.

We also have a very unrealistic expectation of fatherhood don’t we? Take two weeks off then get out there and provide for your family! I wrote recently on another post about male pnd and my thoughts around it but I genuinely believe it’s a bigger problem than what is reported and I see the problem regularly in the job I do. Men being ignored during antenatal appointments , during labour , post birth. No one ever turning to him and asking how he’s feeling? Giving him the chance to bond with his baby... watching his partner struggle and not knowing what he can do other than provide the money.

I honestly believe babywearing can change the world - that’s not a flippant comment. I really believe starting THAT early on with connection and forming strong relationships. Promoting a gentle , child focussed approach to parenting putting emotional issues wellbeing before “behaviour” can really change these statistics.

Is it a magic cure? Course not! Suicide is a complex issue and I’m certainly not suggesting if everyone babywears and gentle parents we won’t have suicides in future. But I do think it’s a step in the right direction.

Join our community... there are so many other ways to connect with our children and still have boundaries and rules when we parent them.
