I couldn't attend the next meet with my newborn (think it was sleep related...
Thanks again ladies � just wish I would have had your group and support to do this with my older children X

Have you ever tried a carrier your baby cried...
I've just added a new page to the website, such a common worry for many parents...
Why does my child seem to cry in the sling? What am I doing wrong? Very often..., nothing at all.. but here are some useful tips to help ensure you are making it as easy as possible for both of you to feel happy and confident!
If you would prefer to use a buckled carrier for your newborn over a stretchy wrap, here is some useful info on the ones suitable for smaller babies and how they compare.
Newborn-suitable buckle carriers - one of the most often talked-about sling topics. Whether you like to use buckles with a newborn or not, it's fair to say tha...t they do (quite rightly) hold an appeal for many parents, and in the last few years there have been several new carriers produced which are really rather excellent. Given the huge choice of newborn buckle carriers, we've come up with this helpful infographic to let you see the relevant features of each, to help you make an informed choice.
My husband giggles at me when I take Babywearing selfies, he thinks I take too many, but with 'ups' being quite seldom now I never know when it's going to be my last time. I'm going to keep taking those selfies just in case.
What did you baby wear today?
This is a lovely post that shows just how long you can use your caboo for! You might not use it for long periods of time as they get bigger, but for quick ups it's still great!
We were just having a little play with the @closeparent #Caboo anniversary edition cotton blend to see what it's like for a 15 month old.
It's still a handy pop...pable carrier at any age, just adjust well, spread fabric to kneepits and up to armpits.
I liked flipping the shoulders for comfort and the outside layer focused in more support around the seat and bringing her weight around my torso.
How long did you use your Caboo?
Natalie's ring sling is up for dip, see how gorgeous it is!! Go and have a dip!
Stretchy Wraps can be very useful in those first days, weeks and months as you can wrap it on you, and leave it on. As long as you you want, or need. Wrap it,... tie it, and you can welcome baby in and take baby out, without retying or readjusting. In that initial period after your baby is born (known as the 4th trimester), this can be wonderful - you know where the sling is, you know it's on and you know that baby is close, secure and connected whilst snuggled in there.
Adjusting as a family and adapting to the changes, can be challenging. A stretchy wrap (any sling really) can make this transition simpler - babies are calmed when next to you, they hear your heartbeat, smell you, feel you. And it's the same for you - you feel them, hear them, smell them. It all makes sense. Our bodies understand. They produce oxytocin. This has positive effects on baby and mother (all 3 aspects - your mental health, emotional and physical well-being). It makes sense.
Our next sling meet is on Sat 24th Feb. Please feel free to share the event with any friends and family that might be interested in finding out more about babywearing.
