All right, it’s official, it’s now 2019! If, like us, you keep writing 2018 for the date, that’s normal. Is it a matter of habit or difficulty turning the page? A bit of both, most likely! A new year begins, and with it a lot of projects, discoveries and changes, of course. So to help you get through this month of January with equanimity, we’d like to offer you a few solutions for welcoming change, simply.
To Make a Resolution or Not to Make a Resolution?
It’s funny how every new year, it feels like you’re starting a new chapter in your life, right? Even though in practical terms, nothing has changed from one day to the next... For some people, the best way to welcome this change of year is still to adopt a few good resolutions. Even if it takes a year, might as well leave bad habits behind and/or try new experiences! Learn to cook, ask to go down to part-time, get into yoga... All resolutions are good, as long as they work for you. And if you are one of those people who doesn’t make any, that’s fine too!
Time for Taking Stock and Making Plans
In January, we are often tempted to calmly take stock. It must be said that time passes at a crazy speed, especially once we become parents (those who know, know). It’s nice to remember the good times and the road traveled; nothing beats the excitement of the blank page that a new year represents. So take a piece of paper and a pencil and write down everything you would like to do in 2019, even your craziest desires. After all, it’s the season for making commitments!
What if we took advantage of this rift in space and time that happens before and after the holidays to wish the best for ourselves? To respect our choices, to dare, to listen to our intuition... Sometimes the biggest changes are those we do not see. A change in how your day-to-day family life is organized can reinvigorate your professional life. Accepting an unexpected offer can mean the beginning of a long collaboration. Who knows? 2019 could have many surprises in store for us!
Welcoming THE Big Change
Are you expecting a child in 2019 and feeling apprehensive about the changes to come? We understand, but just know that “nothing is permanent, except change.” You do not have to be Heraclitus to realize that time goes by and every day is different! So yes, the arrival of a child is the kind of whirlwind that makes life move in fast forward, and there is nothing we can do about it. But fortunately, we can prepare for it, worry (a little), rejoice (a lot) and get organized (thank you,baby shower registry). And finally, isn’t opening ourselves up to change the nicest way to welcome it?
Wishing you a wonderful 2019, full of changes, big or small!
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).
