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
Bub 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
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:Â how will I
look with a long piece of cloth around me? and: how on earth will I
that whole thing around me?
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
quite important in emergency situations when my daughter needed instant
soothing ... ;)
