I’m a big fan of babywearing. For lots of reasons. I think it’s beneficial to both you and your child, for the comfort, bonding and relationship with them. I think it’s beneficial to you for when you have a clingy, whiny baby and let’s face it all babies have days ( weeks, months) like this but you still need to get things done. It’s great for when you are heading out for the day but you know a buggy would just get in the way. Or for an older child who is adamantly wanting to walk but after 15 minutes tires their little legs.
We started off when Chloe was just a few days old using a wonderful stretchy Boba Wrap which I purchased on Amazon so I was thrilled when we were offered a Boba 4G to review from Slumber Roo when Chloe had just begun to outgrow the wrap.
Just a few of the places/activities I’ve used mine at/for:
Festivals -I cannot tell you just how much we loved using this at festivals this summer. It made our days and especially nights so much easier. We used it for both Chloe and Isabelle and love how easy it was to adjust and the way it’s comfortable on both myself and Andrew for both front and back carry.
Shopping – I hate taking the buggy when we go shopping but Chloe gets fed up in the trolley so the carrier is ideal for this. I also find it much easier when I’m trawling charity shops or food fayres.
Baking – I managed to make both Izzy and Chloe’s birthday cakes this year while carrying Chloe and they turned out pretty well.
Cleaning – sometimes the only way I get any cleaning done is to strap Chloe in, she will quite happily snooze while I hoover and dust.
Pacing – you know those nights when your baby won’t go down and your arms ache so much from holding them and pacing your lounge floor? Well a carrier doesn’t solve problems but it definitely makes life easier.
Great features include:
A removable sleeping hood
And lots more.
The Boba 4G rrp is £99 which to some may seem expensive but when I consider how much we have already used this for both of our children and how much more time we will get out of it I think the cost per use is very low.
You can find out more about Boba and other baby/toddler carriers on the Slumber Roo website.
