A BABY CARRIER WAS AN ABSOLUTE GAME CHANGER FOR ME

When I was pregnant with my first baby a baby carrier wasn’t even on our list of things to buy, other than seeing the occasional celebrity in OK magazine wearing their baby in a carrier this wasn’t something that any of my close friends or family had used so it really wasn’t on my radar.

HEAR WHAT THE REAL TALKING NEW MUMS HAVE TO SAY…

Everyone will tell you having a baby is life changing… It’s the best of times and the hardest of times all rolled together into one big roller-coaster ride.  When you are pregnant so many people will tell you what you should and shouldn’t do and how it was for them years ago. Yet when you have your baby you will wonder why nobody told you so many things that would have prepared you better. We decided it would be good to hear it from new mums living the experience right...
