Panda Carrier Review (Includes Video Review)

I was recently sent a Panda Carrier to review and I have to admit I was a little sceptical at first, because I haven’t ever used a very structured “hiking backpack” style of carrier. I’ve previously used stretchy wraps, woven wraps, buckle carriers, mei tais, buckle slings and ring slings… but never one of these.

Budget Friendly Babywearing

budget babywearing

Babywearing can be expensive - but it doesn’t have to be! And spending more money doesn’t necessarily mean a better carrier. We bought the top-of-the-range absolute most expensive carrier stocked in Babies Galore (6 years ago - there wasn’t much to choose from) and it’s still the most money I’ve spent on a single carrier....

Dad’s Babywearing – “Real Men” Wear Their Babies

It seems that there are quite a lot of people out there who still think that dads babywearing is unusual because it's something that only mother’s do; that it’s somehow a feminine activity.

It’s an idea that I find more than a little absurd, and I think to explain exactly why this is unfathomable to me I’d like to introduce you to my dad.

Babywearing Hollywood Style

If you look at how Babywearing is portrayed on tv and in movies- it’s no wonder people choose the least ergonomic carriers to start with! So often they are narrow based, outward facing and just look damn uncomfy to anyone who wears an older baby or toddler with any regularity.First up, we have The Guys who love the least ergonomic carriers, in the least comfy position:

Little Frog Ring Sling Review (Toddler)

little frog ring sling

First impressions of the Little Frog Ring Sling – it is so easy to use. I had it threaded up and toddler in it within a few minutes of the parcel arriving. (I was a little bit eager to try it out!) I love it in a front position where it feels like it’s just a long arm wrapped around myself and my toddler giving us a big cuddle – it was really snuggly.

Little Frog Ring Sling Review (Baby)

I have been lucky enough to be offered a chance to do a Little Frog Ring Sling Review with my 15 week old. This is the first wrap style carrier I have used as my first carrier was the Ergo Original, so this was very exciting.One of the first tasks I had to do was watch a few videos showing how to use the sling. At first I tried without my daughter in it, however it wasn’t until actually putting her into it did I feel like I was wearing it correctly.

Choosing an Ergobaby Carrier

On Saturday I was at the Pregnancy, Baby and Children’s Expo with my family and I happened to walk past the Ergobaby stand while wearing my 2.5 year old daughter on my back in my own Ergobaby carrier. One of the women running the stand initiated a conversation with me about Ergobaby and one thing led to another...so Sunday morning, I was back at the Expo, bright and early, before the doors opened to the pulblic ready for a crash course in all things Ergo to help out on the stand for the day.That’s just how I roll.

15 Babywearing Benefits

babywearing benefits

There are so many babywearing benefits for both the parent and the baby. Here are a few things that we love about babywearing! Babywearing turns working from A to B into a bonding opportunity. I got my very first carrier when my son was 3 weeks old and part of the reason for buying it was we only had a forward facing stroller at the time and as we walked along people would stop and chat with him, or even just smile in at him, and I felt like I was missing out.

Unraveling Woven Wraps (Woven Wraps FAQs)

woven wraps

I am by no means an expert on Woven Wraps. I have two, a Hoppediz "light" size 6 and a Little Frog Sunny Agat II size 3 from Woven Wraps Australia. Being part of a couple of online baby wearing communities I’ve gathered a lot information about wraps over the last couple of years and I’ve had a lot of my own questions about wraps answered – and noticed a lot of people ask the same sorts of questions, whether they’re looking to buy or simply curiosity about why people would strap a baby or toddler to their body with a long piece of colourful fabric.
