We Love Babywearing, Do You?

 Since I've had Summer I've become a massive fan of babywearing which is where you carry your baby around in a sling or carrier instead of using a pushchair. I never really got into babywearing when I had my son but I was sent this gorgeous baby wrap carrier from Joy & Joe so I gave it a go with Summer and we both ended up loving it. The baby wrap carrier is basically just a really long piece of super soft fabric that you wrap around your body in a specific way providing a feeling of being cuddled for your little one and allowing you to have your hands free.

The wrap has a fab little pocket attached to it that you fold all the fabric into and it comes in some lovely colours and patterns, I chose a pretty floral one.

I must admit when I first unwrapped the baby wrap and read the instructions I was a little daunted, it looked really complicated and I didn't think I'd be able to wrap it around myself properly without help but as it turns out it was actually really straight forward and easy to do by myself.

How to wrap

The wrap felt really secure and safe and Summer was held very snugly in it. It was really comfortable to wear and didn't hurt my back at all. I'm surprised how much I loved the baby wrap carrier as I wasn't sure if I'd like it or not but I can honestly say I'm a total convert and will be using my baby wrap lots from now on. Summer loves it too and regularly falls asleep while she's in it

You can buy your own baby wrap carrier from the Joy & Joe website for just £21.99 which I think it a complete bargain for such a brilliant product, I can't recommend it enough!

What sort of baby carrier do you prefer? Leave me a comment and let me know!



  1. Jack hated babywearing but hoping to do so if we have any other children x

    1. Yeah Riley wasn't keen but Summer likes being held all the time which is why I think she likes it so much :) xx

  2. This wrap is so pretty! I've tried it with the wrap and the carriers, and it's just not for me. I feel like the baby is in the way and I feel very conscious of falling! And Tyne doesn't seem to like the wrap style.
    Jon loves the carrier though (the BabyBjorn) and prefers it to the pushchair - Tyne is quite happy in that one. It just hurts my back though! :/

  3. Awww the wrap is so cute - I definitely want to use one if I have another baba.

    Also, just to say that I found your blogs because someone tweeted about a comp on your other blog. I'm so glad I saw it because you're a Mummy/beauty blogger like myself. Keep up the great posts, love them,

    Boo xx

  4. The wrap is adorable! Definitely super handy (:

  5. I love wraps, I have a few. I recently got the Kokadi "Noah in Wonderland" which will be Noah's legacy wrap :) xx
