Babywearing is optimal for mamas and papas who wish to keep their babies close to them in order to provide a continual source of comfort as well as to encourage bonding with their little ones. Of equal, if not more practical, importance is that the caregiver’s hands are kept unoccupied so that she or he may move around as freely and unencumbered as possible.
My wife and I spent quite some time researching different models of car seats available on the market and which car seat models offered the best safety for our child. There are quite a few reputable companies producing car seats which are up to the best standards, but only a few offer it at a reasonable price.
The market is saturated with baby monitors; be they audio, video, movement – or any combination of the three. When it came to choosing our own baby monitor we felt like we were spoilt for choice. After doing some thorough research and taking into consideration a few options we decided to go for the BT Digital Audio Baby Monitor 400. The BT is a no-frills audio only baby monitor. Why did we choose this model? Specifically for that reason.
A little after we found out that we were expecting, my husband and I began to discuss the items which we would need to choose and ideally prepare before baby arrived. Travel systems seemed like the place to start off with – and I’ll admit, after going into full blown ‘study-mode’ when considering the pros and cons to different systems, I felt completely overwhelmed with thoughts of how bulky and heavy the strollers which the majority of brands seemed to offer were. I’m quite petite, and 3-in-1 travel systems only reminded me of tanks heading off to battle.

Of equal, if not more practical, importance is that the caregiver’s hands are kept free so that she or he may move around as freely and unencumbered as possible. We’ve found that, apart from keeping baby close and comforted at all times, wearing our baby when outside of our home results in fewer strangers trying to touch him (as they do when he lays in his pram) since people tend to respect our personal space.
Every parent knows that babies go hand in hand with an incredible amount of items which need to be lugged around; be it a bag filled with spare clothes, nappies, wipes, changing mats, bottles, soothers, milk or food as well as contraptions to facilitate sleeping arrangements such as a nest or blankets to lay them on, especially when travelling. What if you could combine these into one item?
