Malaysian Babywearers gathering - September

The turnout for the Malaysian babywearers gathering this time was very good..even better than last time, I think..yay!

The title was “Ring Sling”. I’ve not used one was looking forward to learn about it but unfortunately was busy chasing Adam while Jess was giving the briefing on ring slings. I don’t know why Adam somehow gets really hyper whenever we arrive at a babywearing gathering! The last time pun mcm tu jugak…habis semua tmpt dia nak pegi/panjat/main/kacau…ok, he’s always like that only masa gathering ni lagi terukla sbb org lain tgh diam dgr talk..hehe…

Hubby arrived in style – in a handmade pouch (oh ya I forgot to blog about this pouch eh?)

Jess explaining about ring slings

However I did get to try out some of the carriers that I’ve been dying to get my hands on…ok let’s feast your eyes on these very hard-to-get carriers…

This one is a SSC called Beco. Look up their website. I’ve always been fascinated by the design. Looks just like a back pack. And after testing it…my comment is…well…it feels just like a big backpack the kind you go hiking in, but not in a good way. Erk I hope no Beco ppl will come haunt my blog with spammers. It was way too bulky for me..too thick, too big, too many buckles, and uncomfortable! The shoulder straps go over the shoulder and straight down under the arms but in an uncomfortable way that my underarm feels weird? I don’t know how to explain but it just feels uncomfortable…I imagine it will be very hot outside too..however, I do like the fact that it has an insert so that if you put it down with the baby inside, the baby tak jatuh..and you can just slide from front to back position without dropping baby (although this was hard to try)..



This is a Freehand Mei Tai. Oh I love this one! The material is very soft twill! Very soft and thin! Perfect for our weather, I think. The Freehand deserves the name Kozy better than the Kozy. Ops. it has no padding though...if i were to make a mei tai like this one (oh i wish i have that twill!) i'll pad it a little bit...but overall, i love this mei tai...wish i could buy one...heheh...



Adam almost fell asleep in the Freehand - told you it's cozy


Oh ya Lana came! She wanted to find the perfect carrier for her but unfortunately baby Haiqal tgh sleepy, poor baby! Pls jgn serik dtg lagi next time ok? She did try my Mei Tai Buckle…


hope she liked it..

The timing mmg masa nap baby lah kot..Adam pun ngantuk sgt…the last carrier that I tried after the Freehand was a wrap…teus Adam lelap..

This is a Vatanai Kipawa wrap. It’s supposed to be great for hot weather..i think it is..the fabric is thin, but seems to be strong and grippy..tapi susahnye nak ikat wrap without a mirror! I managed to tie it but a bit low..tapi oklah Adam terus tido..zzzzz….

Lps tu kitorg terus balik..we had to leave early cos dah terlambat pun nak balik Perak..Everybody waiting for us there..eh tak..Opah and Atuk waiting for Adam actually…cucu kesayangan..hehe..So tak sempat nak bergambar dgn the other ladies and try out other carriers…takpe, next month pulak =)
