BABY WRAP

(NOT SPONSORED)

For both my eldest children I have always used the “traditional” baby carrier which am sure every one knows, if you don’t know this is a carrier you wear on your chest which you put the baby in securely and so your able to have your hand free to do whatever you want.

I have only used these carriers because they are the ones I was used to and was familiar with.

Now with the twins I wanted something different from the norm and for a few years I seen the baby wrap being used by a lot of people. Now am gonna lie, at first I though how can you carry a baby in that flimsy looking cloth? it did not look safe to me or strong compared to the ones I had used before and the fact that it was used from the front just made me feel quite uncomfortable and scared for the babies I saw being carried in them.

I know in a lot of if not all African countries many mothers carry their babies on the back using a large clothes to secure them tightly and they are able to literally do everything with their baby tied to their back. From gardening, to planting crops, to washing clothes, to fetching water etc they do it all and I take my hat off for them because I don’t think I could what they do.

So after seeing so many women using this flimsy cloth as I called it ( its not actually flimsy its very strong) I decided to give it a go though my partner decided to stick to the traditional one.

The instructions that came with it did not make sense yet the pictures kinda did so instead of making mistakes I went to my trusted source YouTube and I was able to learn how to tie which was very easy though I thought it would be hard. I can take you I AM IN LOVE with this cloth! It is so soft, I love the grey colour am loving gray right now, its stretchy so the baby can sit securely in there and its also thin enough to use in summer so you wont get hot using it.

I literally carried my son for almost an hour and a half and my back did not hurt, I was not hot and sweaty as it was hot that day, he was not uncomfortable, he was able to look around and also the closeness with him and me was so lovely and beautiful. I am definitely going to continue using it for as long as I can and need it and I will see how it works and manages when my boy is a little bit bigger.

Have you ever used this baby wrap? if so what did you think about it? did you love it or hate it? let me know in the comment section below.

“AND IF THE MUSIC IS GOOD, YOU DANCE”

So the music festival season has started, Coachella seems live and fun but I don’t think I will ever get a chance to go with prices starting at £310 for a general admission ticket! that is an eye watering price. Then you have the Wireless Festival which is more affordable with prices starting at £55 for a certain day and Glastonbury Leeds Festival which is also different prices for different day but prices can start from £205 which include access all weekend as well as camping.

I have never actually been to a music festival before ( i hope I will one day go) but this outfit to me screams fun and comfortable. the blouse is thin and airy so if its hot it will let air in and keep you cool as well as prevent you from getting sun burn ( I know the mum in me kicked in lol) but if its a bit cold and wet let most of the festivals in UK tend to be it can also give you a little bit of cover so you can stay a bit warm.

The skirt is a stretchy material which is great as there is a lot of food to eat at these festivals so you need some thing that will let your stomach expand and breath as you go through all that food. The band around the waist is also stretchy which makes it very comfortable to wear and move around.

I am also wearing a bralet which has pink and white flowers on it which I though has a real festival vibe going on and its a fun little outfit to add to your festival outfit and its doing the picker boo look without exposing and showing too much . It has no wires what so ever in it but it provide the support needed and its really comfortable.

For shoes I would go for something really comfortable as I would be on my feet for a long time and you need something you can dance in all day and all night.

The shoes am wearing are Next hogans which are so comfortable and airy to wear, the sole is chunky which gives you some height but it helps your feet so they are not hurting or too low on on the ground to cause uncomfortableness. The outside material is cloth but a thick cloth, they do not weight you down though after the festival you will have to wash them but hey that’s style for ya lol.

So what do you think of this outfit? would you wear it to a festival or nah?
