Ask any of our Carrying Consultants or Peer Supporters at Slinging Around Sling Library this question and they might look at you funny! We have just hit 40 Connecta’s in our Sling Library across standard, toddler and preschool sizes and it still feels like there are never enough!
As a Sling Library its important to be impartial as 1 carrier will not fit everyone, quite often people come in asking for other brands because they believe that more padding and more structure will mean its a better carrier and end up leaving with a Connecta.
Don’t let the lack of padding fool you, the Connecta is so versatile! With a simple accessory strap it can be adjusted to suit from birth right through to toddlerhood. Our parents love this, as Connecta’s are weight tested to 24 kg (52 lbs) it means 1 standard size carrier can be used from birth right through toddlerhood and beyond! From a Sling Library perspective we also love how small they fold down! They are, by far, our smallest buckle carrier which is great when your trying to take everything except the kitchen sink when you leave the house.
Here is what our parents think:
“I love it because it’s a full on hug of comfort while you both travel around! Kisses whenever we want too! I just feel so close to Annabelle while she’s in the Connecta smile emoticon makes the most mundane food shop into something special”
“‘Connecta helps me keep my babies close and keeps us connected even when we’re rushing around. I love feeling Holly’s breathing slow as she falls asleep snuggled in. I also love when Jack is chatting away on my back pointing out all the things he wouldn’t be able to see from the buggy. Even if he is usually dropping crumbs all over me at the time”
“I loved the Connecta baby carrier I borrowed from the library because it was comfortable and easy to use, lightweight and looked fab. My little boy loves a snuggle with Mummy and likes to be able to see my face as he falls asleep, the Connecta was perfect for this”
Our next milestone will be 50 carriers, but what to get? With so many prints to choose from this will ultimately be our hardest decision! #wearallthebabies #neverenoughconnectas #connectalove
