Recently went on the Bump to Babywearing course. Had a great time, lots of fun, lots of useful information and I now feel happy, confident and excited to baby wear when little one arrives.
Really recommend it. X – F. Tarrant
Attended the bump to baby wearing workshop this morning and absolutely loved it! I can’t wait to get started with baby wearing once my baby arrives. This afternoon I’ve been using the stretchy wrap as a bump support and it makes such a difference. Highly recommended – K. Horsewood
I attended the bump to babywearing class just after my daughter was born. Korrin was fab showing me how to tie the stretchy wrap which I have borrowed and use every day. To have my daughter so close is incredible and she is so much calmer as a result. I’m a very happy mummy, and now looking forward to trying out ring slings at the sling library so I can carry on wearing as she grows . – H. Kyme
Whilst looking after my niece i used a shop bought baby carrier but found it to be extremely uncomfortable and painful after only a few minutes. I knew i wanted to carry my baby and found mummaroo on Facebook. I booked into the bump to baby class. Unfortunately the night before, I was admitted to hospital with a kidney infection so couldn’t attend. When i contacted korrin she was so helpful and came to my home to show me how to use it.
I haven’t looked back! I absolutely love baby wearing and recently attended the sling library and borrowed a woven wrap, which is fab. I rarely use my pram as i find the sling so much more convenient for the school run or nipping to the shops and walking my dog is so much easier now. I am now looking into purchasing my own woven wrap.
Everyone at mumaroo has been so welcoming and friendly and always on hand for any help or advice. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough and wish I had found babywearing 9 years ago with my oldest daughter. – K. Plastow
I attended the bump to baby wearing course this morning and thought it was great! Korrin and Emma are really friendly and helpful. I will definitely be coming to the sling library sessions to learn more about baby wearing and grow in confidence. Highly highly recommend! Only downside is I’m not sure I’ll get my baby back once my mum has a go! She’s already been telling her friends all about it! – K. Shipston
