My top reason for loving my Hug A Bub
Of course baby wearing from
newborn means no-fuss
close contact and hands free soothing as all baby carrier reviews say.
But importantly ...
... my Hug
also let me carry my baby for hours without any pain
or strain in
my poor back and shoulders. And in my case, that means a lot.
And it's not just my back: the
Hug A Bub also keeps my baby in a safe
I learned that the wide stretchy cloth and the wrapping technique
support her correctly and don't compress her spine (the typical problem
of many baby carriers).
It's safe to carry your newborn baby from day 1 (!)
- even a premature baby. And it's strong enough so I could still comfmortably
carry my daughter when she was well into terrible twos.
So it's safe and comfy
for both me and my baby, what more could I ask for?
How Do I Look? and How Do I Wrap? ...
Well, I did wonder about two more things at first: how will I
look with a long piece of cloth around me? and: how on earth will I
that whole thing around me?
Looking good was easy: there's
a lot of different color combinations,
some soft, some bright, but always stylish. And I think it's important
to have that choice: this is a piece of cloth that will quickly become
part of your outfit, so it might as well fit nicely with it.
My main concern, after
reading many baby carrier reviews: how
to wrap this loooong piece of
cloth into a safe place for my baby?
Well yes, it took me 1 hilarious (!) session in front
of the mirror but
then I was fine.
A few more practice moments and I was soon able to tie my Hug A Bub
very quickly -
quite important in emergency situations when my daughter needed instant
soothing ... ;)
I'm not that handy really, but the clear
and simple instruction videos make it very doable, even for me.
Wrapping up, my Hug A Bub is still my favorite baby accessory ever.
And it saved so many days not just by helping me to soothe my baby girl
quickly and easily.
But it also worked so well to:
- get her into a
reasonable nap schedule
- and to get through phases of baby separation
- and to get things done around the house even if she needed my
- and to go out for lovely walks without stroller-struggle, hands
- and to go shopping, hopping on-and-off metros and buses (SO much
more relaxed than when trying to do that with the stroller !!!)
