Hug A Bub Baby Carrier

This is one of my favourite baby products on the market! 

This baby sling saved me when my son was little and had reflux. He wouldn't sleep lying down as it made his reflux worse, and he was in pain all the time (until we got the medication sorted out). A friend suggested I carry him in a sling, but as I have back problems, I wasn't sure about thisidea. 

Then, I found the Hug a Bub baby sling

The Hug a Bub is so comfortable and easy to use. On a cold morning, I would put on the sling before getting in the car to take my daughters to school, then pop the baby into it as soon as we got there. He was snug and safe, and more often than not, would fall asleep straight away.

The Hug a Bub is available in 7 different colours and retails for AUD$120
