Rachel Walter (newborn boy) and Sandy Fazio (7 month old boy)
After a couple of weeks with the Wilkinet, Rachel is wondering what she’d do without it! “I’m able to get on with jobs whilst wearing it – it’s great for working at the computer! He tends to take his morning nap in the sling.”
“It seems to distribute the weight really easily, so it’s very comfortable to wear. I wore my 4kg newborn in it from three weeks, and I wasn’t at all worried about his head wobbling from side to side. It’s really comfortable and I felt like I could wear it for a long time. Style-wise it was pretty plain so it as good for me and my partner. I can’t think of anything that can be improved!”
Sandy Fazio agrees. “It takes a few goes to get used to how this sling ties but it’s a bit like tying your shoelaces – you won’t forget once you’ve got it! I suffer from lower back pain and the Wilkinet really eased the pressure when carrying him around. My baby also seems to like the sling and jiggles with anticipation when he’s going into it!”
The Wilkinet people have also just released a version of their sling made from Fair Trade material, so you can now give your baby ethical cuddles!
