|Why should you buy a sling? Heres a few benefits for you!|
No padding between you and baby- he feels soothed by the skin to skin contact and your heartbeat
You can discreetly breastfeed on the go
There are no clasps or buckles to fiddle with
Avoid the “public transport with a buggy” nightmare!
Slings provide a better “seat” for baby, as opposed to carriers which dangle baby by the crotch.
The sling can be folded and put in your bag easily when not in use- it takes very little space
The Uptown Wrap allows you to carry your baby close to you whilst keeping your hands free to do what you need to. Unlike many conventional carriers there is no piece of wadding between you and baby, it is entirely skin to skin. He feels comforted and secure, resting against your chest, feeling in tune with your breathing and your heartbeat. Babies are so comfortable that they will very happily fall asleep while your getting on with your business!
The Fourth Trimester The first three months of a baby’s life have also been referred to as the “fourth trimester”, as it is felt that this trimester is an extension of life outside the womb. For the past 40 weeks baby never knew hunger, could always hear mummy’s heartbeat and was always rocked. It may take a while to adjust to life on the outside!
This is where babywearing comes in handy. Not only are you close to your baby, but your baby benefits from this contact. It provides an easier transition to life outside the womb. If your baby is fussing, the sling can be worn around the house, whilst you get your chores done (or run after your toddler). You can also encourage skin to skin contact by not wearing a top and keeping your baby in only her nappy.
