Carried Away

Friday 6 January 2017

They say that no two children are alike and goodness were they ever right! Since having our second baby girl this past November things have been a little busier, juggling a toddler and newborn can get kind of hectic. With our first the Ergo was our go to baby settler which kept me hands free and able to multitask. This time around our sweet Maren wasn’t really into the Ergo (although I have not lost hope for later as it’s a great carrier) and so I researched into other options. Holding a newborn is essential and meaningful but super difficult to do while you have another little human who needs you just as much as your new babe.
I had known about ring slings before but never really indulged with Linden as she was perfectly happy with the carrier that we had. With Maren I was able to reach out to Julie, owner of ConnexionBaby who was kind enough to send me the prettiest ring sling. Her slings are made of 100% linen and comes in some dreamy colours. Being a pretty neutral person I gravitated towards the natural ring sling. This colour works perfectly with really any kind of outfit and the bonus of being a colour my husband can also wear.
Coming from an Ergo carrier that is so structured I felt a little worried that Maren wouldn’t feel as comfortable but after some practicing and help from the husband I was able to get her snuggled right into me which put her to sleep in minutes! It was honestly amazing! The material is light weight and breathable and once secured hugs your baby so nice and close, its no wonder she fell asleep!

I’ve had this sling for about two weeks and its really been a miracle worker. I have been able to get her in and out of the sling on my own with really no issues and remains super comfortable to wear. So far she’s been in the upright position but I plan on learning all the different ways including breastfeeding positions. The beauty of this carrier is that you can use this right from birth and can hold up to 35lbs which means my toddler can easily be worn too! This sling has definitely become a quick baby favourite of mine!
