Babies, Breastfeeding, Slings and a Fab Babasling Giveaway



Throughout my very long breastfeeding journey, there has always been one constant, the need to feed and at the same time have my hands free to make dinner, read a book with the toddler or help with an older child's homework!

Even if I am not feeding , the baby always seems to only settle when being held, which was easy with baby number one, but became extremely difficult when numbers 2,3,4,5 and 6 came along!

Research has shown, that holding our babies until they’re ready to be let go is the most natural way to parent healthy children. 

Babywearing isn’t just about the freedom it gives you to go about your day, it’s about the stimulation, security and bond babies benefit from by being held close to their parents


I love wearing my babies in a sling and it gives me more freedom to do other things, slings are also great when out walking or on the school run, without the hassle of getting the pram in and out of the Car.

Breastfeeding and Slings

Breastfeeding whilst baby is in the sling, is definitely more advanced baby wearing, and will probably require some practice. When first learning to feed in the sling, it may be worth sitting down to ensure that the positioning is correct and comfortable for both mum and baby, once you become confident with this, then you can stand up and move around, going about your everyday life, whilst feeding baby.

One of the slings that is ideal for breastfeeding is the Babasling.

    7. I like the Charcoal - it is a colour my husband would be happy to wear - and then probably the Lite version as we're headed into warmer weather (though maybe the classic would be better as I shouldn't get my hopes up!)
