My needy little man loves being close to his mummy and has done from day 1.. at first I found this totally overwhelming and quickly realised I couldn't spend my entire day laying on the sofa with his sleeping on my chest or walking around trying to do things one handed. After some extensive research I decided to go for the trusty Baby Bjorn Original Carrier in baby blue.. There are so so many different carriers and slings on the market now but it seems that Baby Bjorn is the most popular and it is a household name that I know and trust
When the carrier arrived I was so excited and immediately set it up. I was incredibly impressed with how easy it is to clip together and use. I did have an old hand me down carrier that was pretty complicated to set up and hard to put Harry in without assistance. The Baby Bjorn carrier however is super simple to assemble and get Harry into unassisted - a huge plus in my books!
Since finding out that Harry is deaf (see my post here for more info in case you missed it) I have wanted to keep him close more than ever and the Baby Bjorn Carrier has been a lifesaver and really allowed me to have Harry next to me whilst still being able to get on with my day. I can tell he feels really secure when I'm wearing him and he snuggles right into my chest so he can feel the beat of my heart.
I do find that I get a sore back after using the carrier which is such a shame as I would like to use it loads more. I don't know if it's because I am quite a small person and I'm not particularly strong, or is Harry is just a heffa! I hope I can continue to use the carrier right up until H is happier to be up and about and playing by himself.
Thank you so much Baby Bjorn for helping me and my little boy stay close to each other especially at this tough time!!
Do you use a baby carrier or a sling??
