MOST RECENT

Oh look, we had a few more slings arrive today!
We now have more @babytula Free-to-grows, @ergobabyuk OMNI 360 carriers, @jpmbb Physio Carriers and the new Hoodie Carriers.
I can hardly move for cardboard boxes, so I'd better flatten them quick because we have orders from @lifftslings @integrababy and @mamarugababy on the way.
What's you favourite sling? Comment and let us know!

Don't know what sling to choose? Book in a free phone consult and we will give you personalised advice with the option to hire, try before you buy or by if we find the right one for you.

🤰🏻 GESTATIONAL DIABETES 🤰🏻 So as expected, I have this to add into my routine again! I have been diagnosed early with GD.
Gestational diabetes is high blood sugar that develops during pregnancy and usually disappears after giving birth. It occurs if your body cannot produce enough insulin, a hormone that helps control blood sugar levels to meet the extra needs in pregnancy.
I was diagnosed after my glucose test at 28 weeks in my first pregnancy. If you have it in pregnancy, it’s pretty likely to develop in any future pregnancies. So I was prepared and experienced this time around.
Lucky last time I managed it fine by controlling my diet better and cutting out too many treats. Planning the same this time too so we will se how it goes.
The wee kit in the picture is my blood sugar testing kit. I have to prick my finger a few times a day 2 hours after meals. This tells me my sugar levels so I know if what I ate was ok. I’m part of a trial group for this new kit, very high tech as it’s all done via Bluetooth to my phone. 5 years ago it was notepad and pen! 😂

It’s a tiny wee needle so like a pin prick, monkey has become my personal figer pricker! I set everything up and she presses the button. Should I be worried my child likes to stab me? Haha

With my first, I was fine after birth but my daughter was taken to scbu and put on a drip as her sugars were low. After a couple days she was fine although she then had other issues not related to GD.
Fingers crossed we won’t need scbu this time but at least I can prepare my self mentally for anything that happens.

Also don’t you love my wee wrap scrap bag I keep my kit in?
Have you had gestational diabetes? How did you manage it? Have you just been diagnosed? Feel free to ask me anything! I may even do a video on me doing a test 🙂

I'm really excited to be going to @slingshowscotland on Saturday where I'll be hosting a back carrying in a ssc workshop. Will I see any of you there?

This is just a wee video of my son enjoying a back carry in our @babytula toddler carrier while practicing his Spanish.

When Sally created Sycha slings it was very important to her that they help support families new to wrapping. These wraps are the perfect teaching and learning tool. Sycha slings also support sling libraries to purchase as we value the importance of the skills shared during meets. @slingsupportsuperheroes #slinglibraryappreciationmonth2018 #slinglibrary #learntowrap

One very tired, grumpy (teething?!) baby has been up most of the last 2 nights, creating one very tired, trying not to be grumpy mama today! Bumped into the gorgeous @coco_do.it.like.a.mother at toddler group this morning where she very kindly took the grumpasaurus off my hands (THANK YOU!! 🙏🏻) so I could enjoy a hot cup of tea, and then he finally crashed out at the end feeding in the sling.

Lots of lovely offers of help getting Florence’s shoes on and help on the toilet but thanks to A. Her proficiency at both, and B. My beautiful @connectababycarriers sing I was able to do continue feeding hands free... and here’s my bathroom selfie to prove it 😂

If you need any support with feeding, slings, or even combining the two - get yourself to Cake Club Thursday’s where myself, @lizzie.do.it.like.a.mother and @curly_clair will be ready to lend a listening ear and a helping hand ❤️

@alsketisjal har flera kortisar 🤩
・・・
Kortisar! På bilderna: bas-2 och -3 (storlek 4 och 3)
@barsjalsutmaningen
Jag gillar kortisar, de är väldigt smidiga när en är utomhus med en tultare som gärna vill upp och ner var 10:e minut. ;) Här är några, de flesta tillgängliga i #uppsalabärotek

So a soak in violet's mineral bleach (suggested to me by a couple of people but something I have tried before) and then a wash (with some more violet's bleach) and there is a definite visible reduction in the stain!

#staintip Washing up liquid has saved a number of the library carriers, oil and a suspected lipstick stain to name just two! Rub it in (with a toothbrush if the fabric is suitable) and taa daa stain magic!

Unfortunately I gave it a go but the felt pen solar connecta beat washing up liquid :-( #slinglibrary #slinglibrarianwoes

Our next library session is at @norwichplayhouse on Sept 27th, 10-12
Come along for free slingy advice with hire available.

All set for slings and cloth nappy meet in Witham today. We have loads of beautiful wraps like this stunning @firespiral size 4 and some gorgeous ring slings. We'd love to see you there xxx 10-12 at Witham Methodist church hall. #babywearing #babywearingforthewin #babywearingmama #babywearersofinstagram #slinglibraryessex #slinglibrary #wovenwrap #ispyfispi #clothnappies #flatlay #essex #witham #naturalparenting #fourthtrimester

Does this being back memories for you? Or is this still a vision of the future for you? Tell us your memories, or your hopes.
This lovely photo shows how close and snug this @lifftslings stretchy wrap holds a newborn baby. Transitioning to the world is made easier by the familiarity of the parent's movement and the sound of their heartbeat. Their smell is comforting, the parent's body helps them to maintain and regulate their temperature, and because of their closeness parent's become expert at reading their baby's cues for feeding and distress and so are able to respond quickly. And, this busy mum has her hands free allowing her to meet the needs of her other children too.

Sneak peak of an upcoming Duet release. Can't decide on a name for this fabric. Any ideas?

Today I carried the baby, the shopping, all the random things the Toddler passed me and still had a hand free to take a selfie! 😂 Love that slings help me with all the little things... What everyday tasks do slings help you with?
