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.

Going Through Changes

Hey guys, so it’s been awhile since i have done a blog post and the last few months have been time i have taken to work out some life changes. I have not really posted on my social media platforms either which is quite different for me as am always posting something lol.

But i am hoping to get back to blogging ASAP though i might focus more on my lifestyle but we shall see. Onto a better note the kids have broken off for summer holidays (yes!!!) So happy as i don’t have to do school runs and be up at the break of dawn! Though i need to find places and ways to entertain these kids.

Oh my fifi (faith) has finished primary school this year and will be going to secondary school in September 😭😭😢. I just can’t get over her going to secondary school she’s still my litttle baby girl but i thank god for bringing her this far and now its a new chapter for her which am sure she will enjoy.

So thats some of the stuff that’s been going on in my household and i hope you all are having a brilliant summertime/break.
