As a family, we have always enjoyed baby wearing and I have personally done so since Isla was a few weeks old. Starting off with a stretchy and moving onto a Mai-tai, which is what I chose to use now. My partner Mathew has a much larger frame than me so wearing a Mai-tai isn’t comfortable for him at all and he doesn’t feel 100% confident with the ties.
When Isla was 9 months old I quickly found that she was much happier in a world facing position in her pushchair. After a week or so she would no longer parent face so I began my search for a stroller. My main requirements where two things: 1. I wanted something compact and lightweight and 2. I wanted something eye catching and stylish as I really hate the look of most strollers.
One of the most common parenting apps has to be ‘The Wonder Weeks’. Everyone has heard of it and it’s all over every birthboard I’ve came across. Some people swear my it, some think it’s utter bullshit.
