#15 When really little it was known as the magic sling and she could get the sleep she needed by being close and I could get on with life with a 4 year old (and also eat pies and drink pints with friends…) I like having options- so I mix it up- pram and sling – depending on where we’re going what we’re doing and whether she’ll have to be in car seat etc later in the day. Oh and it’s dead snuggly….
