APRIL: Flourishing

avril 01, 2019

 

In April, we aim to flourish a little like those spring flowers that spread their petals wide. Flourish, yes, but not in line with the demands of society that expects us to be fulfilled mothers, brilliant working women and even radiant Instagrammers. Rather, the idea is to gradually open ourselves up to become our true selves: the part that we find exciting and can inspire others.

Let time take its course

Just as Rome wasn't built in a day, spring draws its strength from the apparent latency of winter: you can’t develop yourself fully in a flash. That would be too easy. And not interesting enough! Flourishing takes time, so be patient. The path to flourishing obviously counts just as much; it is the soil you must draw from to find satisfaction.

Cultivate your own garden

Motherhood, entrepreneurship, travel, slow life, art... each part of our life is like a garden and it is up to us to cultivate it to help it flourish. Our garden can be secret, wild, orderly, colourful, exciting... What matters is preserving it, always with our needs and desires in mind. Some gardens will require a great deal of freedom if they are to bear fruit, while others will need daily attention to blossom generously. So, whatever kind of garden you have, make sure you pamper it!

Being born to oneself and others

Like a flower that opens and releases its delicious perfume, let your inner me express itself. The part of you that smiles and encourages others to smile back. The part of you that radiates with joy and inspires those around you. The part of you that brightens up your life and leads you on a path towards harmony. Flourishing is like being born again: it is the beautiful result of developing smoothly and completely. Not only will you feel well aligned but, with a bit of luck, you will be able to sprinkle the same magic on your loved ones!

So, while you dodge April showers, slowly open yourself up to being the best version of yourself!

Size guide

1. WHICH SIZE SHOULD I CHOOSE?

Our baby carriers are currently available in two sizes : T1 and T2. The fabric is stretchy enough to adapt as best as possible to both the wearer's and the baby's bodies. 

Generally, T1 suits sizes from S to M and T2 suits larger sizes.


Important: The fabric will soften and relax during use and as the baby grows. It’s normal that the baby carrier feel a little snug during the first use.

And since each body is unique, you can try it quietly at home to see if it suits you and if not, you can send it back for a refund ;)

2. THE SIZE IS TOO SMALL - BABY IS TOO SQUASHED

You may experience a feeling of tightness but the goal is ultimately that the baby is held firmly against you and does not move, just like with a classic carrier. For the newborn position, depending on the morphology of both the baby and the wearer, it can quickly become restrictive. You can therefore place them into the sitting position early by respecting their physiological position and the natural spacing of their hips. The seating position will feel less snug as the legs will be out.

Also, do not hesitate to flatten the fabric on your back to leave more on the front.

Important: The fabric will soften and relax during use and as the baby grows.

3. THE SIZE IS TOO LARGE - BABY IS TOO LOW

Indeed your child should not be too low, or at least the position should remain as comfortable for them as it is for you and your baby should remain within reach for kisses. If this is not the case, you can make a loop with the fabric on each shoulder. You can make a loop by twisting the side of the scarf and reversing the hems so that the fabric is shortened and the baby is slightly lifted (see video section).

You can also wash your sling (30° or Warm setting in the washing machine) so that the fabric shrinks back to the original size (the product cannot be reimbursed once washed).

Don't miss out !
