Hi all, this is the website to run alongside the Sling Sally Facebook page and it’s here where I will host my reviews, blogs, sling consultancy and library. I started the Facebook page as a way of sharing my love for babywearing, and especially how it can help with postnatal depression, so please check it out – plus there are often giveaways 🙂
A little about me – I’m Sally from Berkshire in the UK. I’m Mum to Reuben and married to Ben who also joins in the babywearing fun. We bought our first sling while I was still pregnant (a Babasling) and have since progressed into the wonderful world of woven wraps and slings.
I love being able to be close to Reu all the time and interact with him so much. When we go for walks he can see everything I can see so we can look at everything together. He’s very sociable which I’m sure is in part because he’s had so much interaction with people by being at their eye level. I also love being able to get on with things that need doing, while having a happy Reu with me, for instance he’s asleep on my back as I write this.
I have suffered from antenatal and postnatal depression and babywearing has definitely helped me cope with this as it’s enabled me to get out easily, get jobs done, and form an incredible bond with Reu.
I would love it if my Facebook page and website could enable more people to enjoy carrying their children, and especially to help parents struggling with mental health problems to find another tool to aid their recovery.
