Wrap a hug changed my life. Quite literally! I was a Stokke Xplory pushing mummy who had not even heard of a woven wrap until i met Azzurra. I was struggling to come to terms with how i was going to continue with family weekend walks through Hampstead Heath with my five year old and my new baby. I saw on Facebook an advert for Wrap a Hug and, not knowing anything about baby wearing i went along with my 11 week old baby to find out what a Sling Library was all about. Azzurra was the perfect teacher and within fifteen minutes i was confidently wrapping my baby in a piece of cloth! I was utterly delighted at the thought of having both of my hands free but still being able to kiss my baby and hold him close while i got on with things. I had tried three types of Baby Bjorns which i found very painful on my back and have been collecting dust in my wardrobe. I also have tried the Ergo baby. I admit the Ergo is a lot better than the Baby Bjorns but none of these structured carriers can compare to the comfort and support a woven wrap provides. It’s tailored to your body and the weight is not just resting on your shoulders and hips but spread evenly over your chest and back too so my baby felt so much lighter. I noticed my baby was also happier because with the fabric wrapping us together it felt like a cosy cuddle for both of us. At first glance a woven wrap looks a bit ‘hippy dippy’ and i thought it also looked really complicated to use. It’s actually really easy once you get the hang of it and Azzurra helped me figure out the tricks to getting my baby wrapped quickly and comfortably. I actually have become so into baby wearing that my £1500 stroller is now a decorative item in my house wink emoticon My husband who initially rolled his eyes when i told him about babywearing asks me to wrap our baby on him all the time! Who knew it was so addictive? Thank you so much Azzurra, we are both so grateful for your patience and skills – you are an excellent teacher. We are officially converted smile emoticon I wish i had met you before baby was born – wrapping really would have come in handy in the first few weeks
