I really enjoyed using my woven Lenny lamb for my dd whilst she was still fairly sleepy up until around 3mo.
She is now nearly 5mo and I'm struggling with where to go next with baby carrying... My woven seems too short to contain her and she wants to see what's going on all the time and so it seems too restrictive.
I would welcome any ideas ... I am in w Sussex but not sure when sweet wrappers meet as I'm not on Facebook Thanks!
I bought a baby hawk mei tai at about that age for dd2, when she got fed up of being so enclosed in her moby wrap. We still use it at 13mo because she can look around, but can still snuggle in and go to sleep if she wants to. I still use it on my front as dd is quite petite, haven't tried a back carry yet.
Hi flopsy, sorry for the delay. As long as I tie it so it fits tightly and is high up, dd's weight is no problem. I use it for dog walking and for naps when she won't sleep anywhere else. She's 8.25kg now (18lb ish). Once she's too heavy for a front carry, I'll try her on my back.
What size is your woven? What carries jave you been using? There are so many carries you can do with a woven wrap, have a look at YouTube (Wrapping Rachel has loads of videos showing different carries). Hip and back carries are great for nosy babies.
