“I started baby wearing when Jay was a newborn. We used a Close Caboo we bought from a high street shop that I didn’t really know how to use. When he got to a few months old wearing him just hurt my back. I thought that was it for us and that was really hard because he always needed that physical contact.
We learnt how to use buckles, ring slings, wraps; everything! I fell in love with the freedom carrying gave us. I felt so close and so in tune with Jay and his needs. On my tough days, where I was struggling with anxiety and depression I found having Jay in the sling very grounding.
Having Jay in the sling meant he saw the world from an adult’s height. He was always involved in conversations when we met people. We could chat away and play whilst still doing what we needed to. Now he’s 3.7 years old and walks everywhere, but we do always have a sling in the bag as those little legs still get tired. Sometimes being 3 is tough and you just need a slingy snuggle to feel secure again”
