We have had an awesome response to our celebration of babywearing dads this week. Thank you to everyone who has commented and shared their experiences!
It is clear that, for many families, babywearing really is something that brings them together: giving the opportunity for Dad to feel that closeness and connection that maybe comes more naturally to Mum, but also giving both parents the freedom to get out and about and do the things they loved doing before a baby came along.
We have heard from Tom and Leigh this week about their babywearing journeys, and there are so many more dads out there discovering the joy of carrying their little ones: here are just a few of them who are helping to share the babywearing love.
“I love to carry Alfie in the sling because it’s our special Father/Son time together – because I can hold him close it means we get to have some one-on-one time and cements our bond with each other. It’s just an added bonus that it’s so convenient and easy!”
“I love baby wearing because I can talk to the little ones while walking and point things out at our level. I love being able to take them places where I otherwise couldn’t get to and love the extra bonding it creates.”
“One of our family pleasures is to walk in the countryside. The sling makes this so quick and easy, especially in spots where taking a pushchair would be impractical.”
“As a dad I love using the sling as its comfy and a great excuse for father and son bonding time! At times I even forget I’m carrying him as it seems to send him off to sleep.”
“The Connecta is comfortable to wear and to hold my son easily, the pattens make it more inviting for men to wear and make it not just a product for women to wear as a fashion statement.”
“Having been in the Navy, I will always feel a special connection with the sea and using our Connecta gives me an even more special connection and bond with my son. With him being at an easy height to talk to, I tell him stories of my adventures at sea and hope to fill him with the desire to explore as much of our wonderful world as possible!”
Thank you to all of you for sharing your Connecta moments with us. Have a wonderful Father’s Day, and keep on wearing your babies!
