    Hi I have just found a Serena and Lily Sling on the Natures Child website, they look amazing.
    Has anyone used them and what are they like or has anyone heard anything bout them?

      Hi Ann,
      I haven’t tried it personally but if you join our Google Group via the link the Forum page above, there may be others in the group who have tried it. The photo of Nicole Kidman wearing it on the website looks way too big and the baby worn way too low though, so if you get one, my advice is check the sizing carefully. The baby bum should end up around or above your belly button level for optimal position comfort-wise.

    I’m new to this forum, so thought I’d just post to say hi.

    I have recently taken over Frangipani Baby (from Sarah, if you remember Frangipani Baby), selling slings and carriers online – so Frangipani Baby is back and up and running again! It’s very exciting to have the opportunity to carry on where Sarah left off, and also to be able to keep such a lovely business going, rather than letting it die out.

    I’m also a mother of one carried baby, and was carried myself as a baby. My grandmother had a carrier in the ’50s too, so I guess you could say that it’s in the blood!

    Now that I’m connecting with some other babywearers I’m really keen to know about other peoples’ experiences… what’s your favourite carrier and why? what other carriers have you tried? We have used an ergo almost exclusively, mostly because that’s what was recommended by some friends, but I have more recently discovered that there are so many options out there, and I’m starting to experiment a little more as much as I can (my son is now 2) with ring slings, pouches and wraps. Mind you, we have found the ergo pretty awesome, certainly no complaints.

    I went to the Indooroopilly library on 17 March 2012 (3rd Sat of the month) to attend a sling meet and no one was there. The library also didn’t have any bookings for this group. Can you please advise if the meets are still being organised?

    If you are looking for Baby carriers which are good in quality and are durable and reliable in nature you can use Reebaby product ( ) .I used it at the time of my first baby and to my surprise I could use the carrier even after 4 years for my second baby as well :p
