"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. <br><br>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.<br><br>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.<br><br>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. <br><br>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!<br>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.<br>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.<br>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.<br>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
