Slow Life

October 06, 2018

Take your time, slow down, focus on yourself: here are some ways to bring some slow into our lives. Because living slowly doesn't necessarily mean being bored. Because our children deserve our full attention. It's a good time for it: autumn is a season that encourages us to take our foot off the accelerator, and get back to basics. Follow our guide! 

Log off...

... from the virtual world that constantly asks us questions, demands that we create, an overloaded schedule that doesn't make us happy. Slow life means turning screens off at home at night for some special time with the family. It means turning off notifications on your phone, that only bring us a false reality. It's taking breaks, away from hectic surroundings, to slow down and focus on yourself.

But above all, to connect...

...with yourself, with others, with the earth. Slow life is going back to fundamentals, without hurrying, taking your time. It's reconnecting with nature at its own slow and soothing pace. It's taking care of yourself, without pressure, far away from life at 1000 miles an hour. It's not planning anything on a Sunday afternoon other than spending time with your children. It's savouring the simplicity of holding your baby to yourself.

So take the time to ask yourself, to think about your conception of slow life, and enjoy ♡

Camille wears our baby carrier Stripes 

 


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).
