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

Thought we would try something a little different today! I often get lots of messages from people further afield or parents who are already babywearing but it just doesn’t feel quite right ... maybe they’re experiencing discomfort when wearing or maybe they just want someone to look it over and tell them all is good 👍

So .... if this is you then all you need to do is post a photo below of you wearing your child in the carrier you would like fitting advice in. Preferably a front and back straight on image.

I’ll then work through the images and post my top tips to help you get them more comfortable and supportive!

Question : I feel my little ones legs don’t feel comfortable the way she sits in our wrap sling. She’s 6 weeks old so I do the style where sling is folded so when on and tied the cross across chest is like 2 pockets so she’s completely covered rather than legs out xx

If i come to cleethorpes session would someone be happy to have a look over my babys positioning in my izmi buckle carrier please? i havent been able to use it yet as i feel her head isn't supported or its being smoothered against my chest with no happy medium. I came last time but iris was too small for what buckles you had left, im quite happy to try/rent different buckles at the session if she isnt ready for the one i have. Id really appreciate some help x

It was another full day of lovely one to one sessions today...

I started my morning in very sunny Scunthorpe to see a lovely mummy to be who also has a very outdoorsy two year old so obviously needs her hands free as soon as she can to be able to still have lots of adventures and fun with her toddler. As part of the bump to babywearing home visits you are given a professional handbooklet which is yours to keep containing all the information from our session. It was written by us and is designed to make you super confident to enable you to wear your newborn straight away as soon as he or she arrives! We also made sure we discussed carrying after a csection and breastfeeding in slings as these were the main concerns for mum.

I then headed back to Cleethorpes to meet the happiest little boy I’ve ever met! He was full of smiles and waves for me and so very cute. He was at the classic age of wanting to look around and see the world more and mum and dad both really wanted to be able
To pop him on their backs confidently by themselves. They already owned a buckle carrier but did state is can sometimes cause back pain so I initially checked the position they had it in whilst front carrying and made some very minor adjustments that hopefully will make a big difference to their comfort! I then demoed back carrying and both mum and dad had a go - first with the dolly and then with their little boy who loved it!
Mum also had a ringsling but couldn’t get to grips with it herself so we went over ringsling techniques and she did a lovely secure hip carry.

If you would like a one to one I have one slot available still this week on Thursday morning at 10am! But I am only able to offer this for Grimsby / Cleethorpes area.

The following week only Has two slots remaining and then appointments are starting to book for June so please be quick if you are wanting a specific date !

Awe teeny tiny Rosie 🥰

When is the next sling library at cafe indie please?

I haven’t written up anything about our one to one sessions for a while now and I really should because I know lots of you enjoy reading about individual cases. I’ve also been really bad at taking phots!!

Today I had three lovely sessions and all of them very different.

My first mummy has carried her little girl when she was smaller but had given up due to her Buckle carrier putting pressure on her tummy muscles (mum suffers with distasis recti) and her little girl wanting to see out and look around lots more. She wanted something off centre or a hip carrier and something fairly quick and easy to use. Mum has already seen the Scootababy carrier and really wanted to try this. I also made the suggestion of a ring sling because this would mean that mum had no pressure of a waistband on her tummy muscles.

Turns out mum was very much a natural and everything I showed her she did with ease!! First trying the ring sling and absolutely loving it and then having a go with a woven wrap too. We tried the Scootababy too and mum also found it comfortable and supportive but agreed that she preferred an option without a waistband. She loved both the ring sling and the wrap so much that she took both options on hire for the month to see which one she would get the most use out of before she bought her own. We also discussed the weather and keeping baby cool in warmer conditions as the family were planning a trip to Cornwall walking next month. I can’t wait to see the photos !

Next was a family of a little boy with two older children. School runs hands free were a really big priority for them as they didn’t want to restrict their toddler to a buggy board or reins. Mum had been gifted a stretchy wrap but found it far too warm and had her heart set on a buckle carrier - we talked through the options with adjustable carriers and the difference between various brands and finally mum had a go. It was an instant hit and she loved how simple it was to use! Dad agreed and although we did look at some other options it was the clear winner! I have left them with their carrier on hire so they can do some practice school runs and see how they get on

My final visit of the day is a wonderful mummy I have been to see previously. For anonymity reasons I won’t be too specific with this one but sometimes the journey to parenthood isn’t a simple one ... and sometimes babies that are being adopted by their parents have not had the easiest start to life themselves making them more unsettled. I am in absolutely awe of this mummy who is just 100% dedicated to her little one and the bond they both have already is just incredible - mummy knows that carrying is a slower process here and little one may need time to adjust and get used to it in stages as she grows. We are here every step of the way for them both and we are so excited to see them grow together ❤️

As I said I’ve been absolutely rubbish with photos again! So image is one of our lovely pretty wovens we hired out this morning
