I was lucky enough to try a friend's didymos sling before buying my own so
was comfortable with the idea of tying it and carrying my baby safely.
I am thrilled to have my own sling: the fabirc is beautiful, soft,
comfortable and washes really well. The didymos is very versatile, I have
carried my daughter on my front, back and hip. I wish I had discovered
carrying your baby in a sling with my older children - it keeps everybody
happy and on the move!
Don't be put off by the thought of having to tie complicated reams of fabric
around your body, the sling comes with a brilliant dvd and booklet and time
invested in a little practise is well worth it.
The sling also doubles as a baby blanket and I have even used it as a shawl
to keep myself warm when caught out on a chilly weekend away.
