It's International Babywearing Week, and to celebrate I'm very grateful to SaSaSlings for sponsoring this giveaway!
Babywearing keeps babies close to their mums (or dads, grannies, grandads etc) and in my experience it just makes life with a new little person a whole heck of a lot easier :) It's naturally soothing and calming for both your baby and for you, wearing them upright can help to reduce the symptoms of reflux naturally, and it helps you get back into shape gently after having your baby... It makes it possible to hug your baby with both hands still free, it's easier to negotiate stairs and escalators and generally get about, and you can take your baby to places you'd never be able to get to with a buggy! All that close contact helps to boost oxytocin too - and that helps with breastfeeding :)
SaSaSlings are donating a GORGEOUS Storchenwiege Ring Sling like the one below (more details here) and the winner will gets to choose the colour! The giveaway will run until Sunday (the last day of International Babywearing Week) and entries received after 12 midnight UK time won't be eligible.
To be in with a chance of winning, just leave your name and email address as a comment under this blog post, and LIKE the SaSaSlings facebook page! I'll draw the winner next week and ask Sandra to share the details on her SaSaSlings facebook page.
