When I first saw the message in my inbox I thought it was spam. You know..."Congratulations , you've won, now just give us your bank account details and...."
but no! I had *actually* won!!!
A brand new baby sling from Unido.
We both love it! So pretty and perfectly made. It's just gorgeous. Thank you Unido!!
I really love how it folds up small for my bag and I can take it anywhere. It's super comfy even after wearing it for the walk to school and DD really likes being up close.
Awhile ago I had entered an online competition at Slingbabies which is a wonderful NZ resource all about babywearing. It has fantastic information to help parents choose and correctly use a baby carrier. Thank you Slingbabies!!
I've used a sling with all my babies but after nearly 6 years of constant use it's looking a bit tired so I entered the competition as the prize was a new carrier. I absolutely love 'wearing' my babies. It's a fantastic way to bond with your baby and great for getting things done when little ones are tired/grizzly. The babies just like being with you while you potter around. I also use an ergo carrier with DD3 who at 11kg is a little too heavy for wearing long periods with the weight on one shoulder. She usually has one of her day sleeps on my back and I can fit DD2 in it as well so it's very versatile. It's especially good for taking little ones for walks where buggys/pushchairs can't go easily (ie most shops).
Erika wrote a great post this week showing off her awesome carrier selection. She's made the seaweed cover which I think I might make sometime soon to keep us snuggly warm while DD's in the carrier at playcentre.
Now Sarah at Unido is running another competition! If you want to win some awesome baby products then all you have to do is go to the Unido website at www.unido.co.nz. Click on portfolio and mix and match the designs until you've chosen your 2 favourite combinations of patterns/plains.
