​MAY: Listen to yourself

mai 01, 2019

Enjoy that carefree feeling this spring! We are not suggesting you drop everything to open an ashram in India or raise goats in the Larzac... Instead, we'd like to see you take advantage of this traditionally relaxed month to tune into your wants and needs Follow the guide!

Listen to yourself neither too little nor too much.

When it comes to tuning in with yourself, we'd advocate a less is moreapproach. To be specific, forget any preconceived ideas you have about paying too much attention to yourself because it seems that you can never listen to yourself enough. Especially when there are such constant demands on your time and the overwhelming urge to compare yourself to other people. In May, give your inner voice a bit more space and rather than just hearing it, make a point of listening. Really. You won't want to take on board everything but by making that effort you'll give yourself the chance to connect with your deepest needs. Get better at doing the things you enjoy!

Listen to your body

Would you like a healthy mind and body? Work towards it in May by paying attention to the little (or big) signals your body sends out. Listening mindfully could help avoid breastfeeding becoming a chore or prevent a tiredness related injury or missed alarm. Are you tired? Go to bed when the kids do (or the hens, if you like). Do you dream of relaxing for a couple of hours? Get your other half to take everybody out for a while so you can have a rest. Are you craving comfort foodright now? Enjoy that chocolate praline, guilt free!

Listen to each other

Life is so busy these days that we end up losing sight of the important things. When you listen to your loved ones, you give them an opportunity to express themselves and you get to spend time with them and show them you are available. So, sit on the couch with a nice cup of tea and say to someone you love: "Come and talk to me, I'm listening!" ». They're bound to enjoy this special time... and so will you!

Basically, embrace that carefree spring feeling this May!


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 !
