Thank you to Rebecca for the eleventh post in our Me and My Connecta series, where happy babywearers help us spread the Connecta love by telling us all about their experiences. Please get in touch if you would like to get involved!
Which Connecta(s) do you have?
A Liberty Garden Wonderland standard Connecta.
Why did you choose a Connecta to carry your baby?
I was using a stretchy wrap which my little boy loved but at around four months he was becoming fussy in it. I read an article online by someone who had had a similar issue and had swapped to a Connecta and thought it was wonderful.
I hired a Connecta from my local NCT sling library which my little boy took to right away and so by the time the hire period was up I had bought my own! I also loved the support it offered to me once my little boy became heavier and the Liberty prints are beautiful.
What is your favourite thing about your Connecta?
Everything – I can’t understand how people can manage without one!
When do you find your Connecta most useful?
For naps, when my little boy is fussy or teething and for doing walks which wouldn’t otherwise be possible with a pram.
Share a photo of a favourite Connecta moment – tell us the story!
I love this picture because it was taken earlier this month on our first family holiday in Cornwall. We went to Porthleven for the day and it would have been so much more difficult navigating the narrow, uneven old streets with a pram.
This next picture was taken during the hot spell we had in May by the pond in Priory Park in Reigate.
Come back next Monday for the next instalment in our Me and My Connecta series when we will be hearing from (another) Rebecca! Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to find out how you can join in.
