DD is 7mo. It's not too late to enjoy baby cuddles in it is it?! Feel like I've been missing out. It's coming on Wed :-)

I bought the Connecta Solarweave when my DD was 10 weeks and we love it! She's 8 montgs now and still snuggles in when she's tired so definately not too late smile

My only slight issue would be that I'm only 5ft 3 so having DD on my front is starting to get restrictive at times (silly things like counting money in my purse in shops as she blocks my view lol) so i need to man up and practice back carries.

Thanks Peanut! I forgot I wanted one with this baby and I've just woken up from a 7 month blur and purchased!

I'm using one to hoick my long 10 month old on the nursery run because its just so much easier than fighting a pushchair through the hoards of schoolkids. My Connecta carried DS1 for approx 18 months and its doing nicely for DS2 as well. Well worth the buy.

Yay!! Thanks Pascha. It's not in the fabric I'd have ideally chosen but every other pattern had sold out.

Maybe I'll have to have another DC to get it's proper use...

I love my Connecta, carried DS in it for a long time and now i'm using it with dd with the newborn adaptation. Enjoy!

I love my connecta. I only bought it when dd was about nine months old as that was when I discovered baby wearing (as opposed to carrying her in my arms!!). You'll get loads of use out of it and they sell well pre loved if in decent condition so you'll get a good bit of your money back

I love it Scottish! However I don't think my lovely inlaws will be impressed. They shelled out over £1000 for a Bugaboo Donkey and now I'm relying on a £62 piece of cloth! It just shows you...

I love the feeling of closeness. It's so handy. She loves it. No having to manoeuvre. Fantastic.
