February is the month of pancake day, ski holidays and… lovers. We’re not about say a prayer to Saint Valentine himself, but let’s be honest, there are worse things in life than celebrating love. Our programme for February is: love yourself, love others, love life, love for real (and not just on the 14th!) Are you game?
Oscar Wildesaid, “To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.”So, it would be rude not to! Despite this, many of us try to give the illusion of being something we’re not, to try to fit the mould to the point where we end up forgetting ourselves. And the media or social networks don’t always help us... So, in February, we’re choosing to love ourselves completely and truly, with our imperfections, our neuroses and our qualities!
I love, you love…
We could also have added, “love one another”, but it would’ve been too much. Admit that there are times when you want to send everyone packing: the perfect mums of Instagram, the friend who always gets what she wants, or your other half with the unwavering patience. And what if the key were to see only the positive, in everything? To love others for who they are, rather than hating them for what we think they are? So, in February, let’s pop on our rose-tinted specs rather than keeping our glasses half empty. With a little luck, you'll feel the love either way.
Say yes to life
So, what about you? Are you more glass half empty or glass half full? Of course, it’s not always easy, especially when a lack of sleep is looming over you, the sun hides away for days on end, or nothing is going as you planned… But isn’t it thrilling getting up in the morning not knowing exactly what the day has in store for us? Living life to the fullest is still the best way to ride on the wave of real love. So, in February, we’re learning to love our daily life, for real!
The icing on the cake, the kind of love where we don’t even have to make an effort, it just comes naturally. If you’re a parent, you’ll know. When we welcome a baby into the world, we discover a new form of love. Love with a capital L, it sweeps you off your feet, unconditionally. All-nighters, fits of tears, teenage angst, all is forgiven! Because with it we discover what it means to love for real. To say that we quickly get hooked would be an understatement.
So, are you ready for the love takeover this February?
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 ;)
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.
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).
