SM reviews… Infantino Cuddle Up Ergonomic Baby Carrier

Infantino’s baby carriers have been best sellers in the US for aeons and are now available in the UK. We tested the Cuddle Up Ergonomic Carrier.

SM tester writes: “I’m a big baby wearing fan, but once they get past 6 months you do need a robust carrier if you are to have a life past wafting from ‘mother and bubs yoga sessions’. I adored testing this carrier because a) it was light (in 30 degrees sunshine that helps!) b) it was super intuitive to fasten and insert baby in the ergonomic position and c) the carrying position is relatively high so it feels really comfortable and doesn’t ‘drag’ you into a hunched stance.

I also loved the fact that the outer pocket is perfect for popping your keys into – but also to put your hands in and cradle your baby, it’s bliss. The carrier itself has an inner – so unlike an Ergobaby there is fabric between you and your child – but in this weather, this is a blessing and also it saves your tops from little accidents!

But the best thing… the Infantino Cuddle Up costs just £37.55 (on Amazon)!”

Our tips for dealing with kids in the heat…

If navigating your path through motherhood has been increasingly befuddled as a result of the recent heatwave, our team have a few tips to share to prevent further meltdown:

“Let them eat lollies..” OK, it’s not an ideal choice for breakfast, but an extra way to top up fluids. Make your own super organic ones if you can be bothered – or order some from Lickalix (they make ones with booze for grown-ups too!)

aden+anais muslin squares in fluro pink

“Wet the muslin” There has been huge controversy in the news about the good ole muzzy-over-the-buggy raising the temperature inside. Take a tip from mums in warmer climes and shade your bubba with a damp muslin.

“Keep them indoors” Make being a killjoy more fun with a fab creative playbook such as My Beautiful Room: Interior Design Workbook by Jasmine Orchard and Olivia Whitworth which has press-out furniture to create beautiful interior designs.

“Get a tent” We are loving Infantino’s Grow with Me Teepee – it’s so delightfully colourful and cheery and it makes for a good sun shade. Or for bigger ones, Babyhub’s SleepSpace travel cot turns into a super tent-den. Kids love to hide, so make dodging the rays into a fun game.

Aldi paddling pool

“Get an awesome paddling pool” We LOVE Aldi’s, Crane Quick Up Pool – 10ft diameter and just £29.99.

“Just chill” Chuck everything in the freezer to cool it down a little; teethers, t-shirts, sippy cups, teddy…. Prosecco.
