My second son, Leo, got the benefit of hindsight and while I was pregnant I did a lot of reading up on the best ways to baby wear, mostly out of a desire to have my hands free for the toddler on the days where the baby just wanted to be held. I read a lot of people suggesting a stretchy wrap sling as a good option for a newborn and after a bit of reading around, the one that had the best balance between cost and quality seemed to be the Moby wrap. You can get them on Amazon but you have to be careful you're not getting a fake so I went to their official site to find their approved sellers list. I ordered mine the day I got home with baby from The Online Baby Centre and it came the following day.
Babywearing this time has been amazing. It gave me the hands-free advantage but I also found it tremendously helpful in other ways. When Leo was tiny and even now he's bigger, I could guarantee he would get some sleep if I had him in the wrap. It alleviated his colic pains better than anything else and it has also been a surefire way of cutting down my postnatal anxiety.
Now Leo is getting bigger and I'm more confident, I've been experimenting with woven wraps too but that can wait for another post.
