I’ve never pinned myself as being a baby wearing mama. I was always taught that holding your baby too much can cause them to be “spoiled” and no one will ever want to watch your child BUT as I’ve gotten older my views have changed.
Baby wearing has been around since forever! It’s the practice of keeping your baby or toddler close to you in a carrier. It’s been said that babies who are carried sleep, feed, and grow better. (Read more here)
I knew from the moment I became pregnant that I wanted to bond with my baby from the start. I always made sure I talked to growing belly so he would recognize my voice. Then I had to figure out ways to keep that connection going and I found that baby wearing would help aid in that closeness.
Now let’s be honest, there are hundreds of carriers out there and it’s so hard to decide on which one to go with. Trust me, after reading countless reviews I was confused. What I did know is that I wanted a quality carrier.
I was reached out to by Poppet Slings and it was truly an answered prayer. It kept me from having to hunt for a sling instead this one found me. I have the Osborne sling in the classic length with bronze rings. It is currently sold out but you can sign up to be notified when it’s back in stock.
The sling comes packaged in a cute little box with the Poppet definition on it. It came with an instruction manual that is very helpful! What I’m learning is practice makes perfect. Watch videos if you’re more of a visual person to get a better understanding of how to use the sling.
So far, I’m in love. He enjoys being close to me when he’s fighting sleep and I’m unable to stop what I’m doing. If you’re in the market for a sling be sure to check them out! I’ve cooked dinner in my sling…can you say rockstar!
