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?
We currently own the Harris Tweed Connecta in Standard and Toddler size.
Why did you choose a Connecta to carry your baby?
Connecta was the first carrier I ever bought and originally I chose it because it wasn’t too expensive. I fell in love! Although I use woven wraps daily I am still very much attached to my Connecta and would use it most when out and about.
What is your favourite thing about your Connecta?
I love how small it folds and also how quick it is to pop the baby up in!
When do you find your Connecta most useful?
I find for us, it is most useful for tandem carries with my toddler and baby. No other carrier is as comfortable and slim to fit around my picky shoulders while balancing the weight of my toddler behind and baby in front.
Share a photo of a favourite Connecta moment – tell us the story!
One of our favourite Connecta moments has to be climbing up the Wicklow Mountains of Ireland and exploring the Waterfall at Powerscourt. With a two year old and 5 month old in tow this would not have been possible without our Connectas!
I could cradle and hold my baby close, comforting him and tending to his needs, all the while playing and exploring with my toddler. Bliss! When his little toddler legs got tired he went straight up onto my back and I tandem carried them both as they slept. Yes, they were heavy when going up hill… but I needed the workout 😉
Come back next Monday for the next instalment in our Me and My Connecta series when we will be hearing from (yet another) Rebecca! Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to find out how you can join in.
