In those early days and weeks your baby will want to be with you at all times, this will keep them calm and help to establish a secure attachment between baby and parents. This is where a baby carrier will be wonderfully useful, you can keep your baby close, they can still feel your motion, hear your heartbeat and smell you whilst keeping your hands free to continue with every day life. To find the best baby sling can be difficult and the safety of your child is of the utmost importance. Baby sling reviews can be useful however at Danu World we have specially trained staff to be able to help you find which baby carrier and seat size is best for you and your baby. After you have purchased your sling we will also check positioning and fit are correct in order to prevent hip dysplasia. Have a look in our baby toys section for a soother chain to attach a toy to you to keep little hands busy whilst baby wearing.
There are many infant carriers to choose from though they all should offer sufficient lumbar support and support for a smaller baby’s head, and they’re all easy to use. Rather than carrying your child in their baby car seat or attaching it to your stroller wheels – which can be dangerous for baby – simply pop them into your carrier to go about your business. With every baby carrier, you should (with a little practice) be able to breastfeed in the sling.

Disposable nappies end up becoming landfill waste and have a huge environmental impact, they also contain the toxin sodium polyacrylate, which will dry out baby’s sensitive skin causing and worsening nappy rash. Babies will always require nappies but when someone mentions reusable cloth nappies images of babies wrapped in towelling with a safety pin and a waterproof cover are conjured up. These days using modern cloth nappies can be a wonderful experience with many different patterns available to fill up your changing bag. The environment agency has produced a report on the life cycle of disposable nappies versus reusable nappies for your information. Reusable nappies are suitable from birth to potty training and are super absorbent making them as efficient if not more so than their disposable counterparts.
Making the switch from disposable nappies to cloth reusable nappies is not only much better for the environment but can work out cheaper for you. Using cloth nappies for the first time can be daunting, there are many different types of nappies available, and different shaped nappies. Trying to decide which are the best reusable nappies for you and your baby is difficult. To begin with you will need to be a little experimental in order to find the right system for you and your baby. At Danu World we have a wealth of experience in using real nappies and pocket nappies and will help you find the best reusable nappies to suit you and your baby.
Cloth nappies are waterproof and breathable meaning they will keep in what they’re meant to but air can still circulate your baby’s precious skin. When compared with even the best disposable nappies benefits for infants include less nappy rash, easier moving around, better at containing poo and better for sensitive skin. You can purchase a variety of different nappy liners for them including fleece liners, disposable liners and raw silk liners. Super absorbent materials used include bamboo and organic cotton, and as the nappies come in a wide variety of different designs each nappy change is exciting. Once you've removed the nappy from your baby it's handy to have a lidded nappy bucket or large sealable wet bag to put it into, that way smells from dirty nappies are locked away whilst you collect enough to make a full wash. These washable nappies simply pop into the washing machine and some can go into a tumble dryer though you will need to check with your particular make first for accurate washing instructions. Reusable nappies are fitted nappies making them a perfect stepping stone towards potty training and toilet training whilst still minimising accidents. Have a look at our great range of bamboo nappies and organic cotton nappies to get you started.
