"Carrying my DS in my Hug-a-bub and breastfeeding are the…"
Carrying my DS in my Hug-a-bub and breastfeeding are the two things I miss the most now DS is 3.5yo. Both myself and my DP loved used the Hug-a-bub and although I have sold a lot of DS' things on ebay I refuse to part with the carrier.
When I see women wearing their babies I feel a little jealous that I can't do it anymore. I used my hug-a-bub till DS was 18 months I think and it was so comfortable.
It takes a little while to get the hang of it and I used to have to tie it for DP when he wanted to use it, but once we got the knack of it it was easy.
When DS was 7MO I went on an extended holiday to see my family in Brazil and on the flight the hug-a-bub was a lifesaver, I even checked in my stroller at the airport and carried him around instead.
I definetely recommend it. It's worth every penny!Read moreLess
"My friend gave me her hug-a-bub so it looks like…"
My friend gave me her hug-a-bub so it looks like I got a bargain!
I do find the material sags a little after baby's been in it a while (he's 4 months), which could be because it's been used a lot already. I also struggle to get it even so it often feels like one side is supporting him/me slightly better than the other.
Having said that, it does spread the weight around brilliantly. We have another clip/buckle baby carrier and that hurts my shoulders after 10 minutes of carrying, whereas this one doesn't at all and is very comfortable.
When DS decided he didn't like travelling in his pram any more, I went shopping with him in my hug-a-bub, so was carrying him for about 1.5 hours including the walk into town. I was very tired by the end but only from having carried an extra 13lb around.
He doesn't sleep easily so this has been a life-saver for all those times I've had to sway / walk him off to sleep: I would have strained by back long ago just carrying him around in my arms.Read moreLess
