Thank you to Colleen for the tenth 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 standard teal dots.
Why did you choose a Connecta to carry your baby?
I wanted something light yet supportive for travelling and had heard great things about the Connecta. I had previously used a Solar weave with my daughter for a trip to South Africa and knew it was the perfect option for my young son.
What is your favourite thing about your Connecta?
It is so quick and easy to put on and folds up nicely to pop into a bag.
When do you find your Connecta most useful?
When travelling. I travelled with two kids without my husband from London to Cape Town last year and the Connecta made it so smooth and easy. My son was 3 months at the time and he was so content in the sling. I had him in it while boarding and disembarking the plane and found it really essential whilst trying to watch my daughter Ella, while loading up all our suitcases onto the trolley. It made Mommy feel less stressed!
I also used it almost daily on our trip whilst walking around Green Point park, strolling along Pringle Bay Beach and climbing up the hills to the Boomslang walk in Kistenbosch Gardens.
Share a photo of a favourite Connecta moment – tell us the story!
I love this colourful photo of me carrying Logan when he was about 8 weeks old. We’d popped to the park for a walk and it started to rain. My daughter was so happy to run in the puddles so we continued with our walk. Logan was happy snuggled in the Connecta.
Another favourite photo is us at Cape Town aquarium. We had a really lovely day, again made easy by having Logan in the sling while I wondered around with my daughter and my mom.
Come back next Monday for the next instalment in our Me and My Connecta series when we will be hearing from Rebecca! Email email@example.com if you would like to find out how you can join in.
