Babywearing Blogger

I'm a Babywearing Blogger! I carried Sunnyboy from birth. We started with a BabyBjorn which I soon realised wasn't a good choice so we got an Ergo which we loved and used until very recently when we moved on to a Toddler Patapum. We also have wraps (a woven wrap and a home-made gauze wrap), hip-carriers (home-made and bought) and a podeagi. Sunnyboy walks most places now but he's still carried 2-3 times a week. I've been passionate about babywearing since reading The Continuum Concept by Jean Leidloff when I was pregnant and it's been wonderful for both Sunnyboy and me. There's loads of information about babywearing and different types of slings/carriers at

Some interesting links:
