If you've been following us for a while, and I hope you have, you know we have a new baby (4 months old) in our house. Annalies likes playing on her own for a while, but she mostly likes to be with her parents, preferably as close as possible! So, in a house with 2 other kids, and many other jobs to do, how are you going to get stuff done if you are often holding a baby? One answer is a wrap - a carrier that consists of a long piece of cloth that you wrap around you in a specific way, so as to hold and support your baby while leaving your hands free!
"Our wraps are made from 100% organic cotton that is dye free and custom knit to meet our specifications right here in Canada!"The Sling Sisters have several great attractive fabrics that they use for the coloured panel on their wraps.

Annalies weighs over 16 1/2 pounds now, and just holding her, without a carrier, it doesn't take long before you start to feel tired, and your arms are sore. With the wrap, I was able to carry her for about 2 hours at the baby show. My back did get a bit sore at the end, but I was impressed with how balanced and supported Annalies was, and how easy it was for me - and I would never have been able to carry her for 2 hours just in my arms! The weight of the baby gets distributed over both shoulders and hips, so you're not straining one side or the other. It was so super easy to get around through the crowd with her in the wrap, and not have to worry about manoeuvering with a stroller around the booths and people! Annalies was very comfortable, as demonstrated by the fact that she quickly went to sleep and stayed asleep for much of the 2 hours!
