I found a very interesting article on the Guardian Website titled “Who needs a cot or a pram when you’re bringing up a baby?”
The article refers to Anna and Paul Garland, a couple from Lewisham, south London who practice a “minimal parenting philosophy”.
Not only have this thrifty couple opted to use a Snuggle Bug-type wrap rather than buying a pram, they have also opted to save money in other different ways.
Saving themselves the average £264 outlay on a pram, the Garlands have chosen instead to use a combination of a wrap sling and an Ergobaby carrier. While they’ve had to deal with a few negative comments, Paul believes that carrying his son “has meant Levin feels safe and secure.” It is also much more practical for getting around on public transport.
So, it’s not just about the money, although they seem to have saved a lot… The article elaborates on their philosophy saying: “There was more behind their shopping aversion than a hectic schedule. The couple were advocates of attachment parenting, a movement that encourages infants to be kept close and their needs met swiftly, without any emphasis on a baby-focused daily routine.”
Read more about the Garland’s decision in the full Guardian article here, and let me know what you think in the comments below.
We have finally gathered our breath after the very busy show in Sandton. We are sure that all of you who bought a Snuggle Bug, will enjoy lots of snuggly time with your babies. We are extremely happy with the outcome and will now be stocking up for the Christmas holidays.
We are 2 days in and it has been so busy! We have had so many moms and dads using Snuggle Bugs to carry their babies around the show. We have had rave reviews and very happy customers. This lady put her little boy in the Snuggle bug and experienced the new feeling of ‘hands free’. She is amazed at the relief on her lower back. ..and yes, you can waear a Snuggle bug on your back too!
