And the winner is.........

Apologies for the cruel cliffhanger at the end of the last post. It was obviously very mean but I simply couldn't resist keeping you all waiting for a little while longer!

Anyway without further ado, the winner of an Ellaroo Wrap, Ellaroo Mei Tai and a gorgeous Sakura Bloom Ring Sling is......................

Christmas Competition

We think we are still the victim of recent changes to Facebook and people are not seeing our updates (if you are a fan and haven't been seeing our status updates, go onto our page and click like or comment on a few statuses which should allow us to show in the future) as it seems a little odd that only 6 people wanted to win three slings. However, with only 6 entries, those that did enter had pretty good odds of winning a great prize. We thought randomly picking one entry was the fairest way to do it.

All Set For Winter

So far this winter there have not been the ridiculously low temperatures and snow that we had had by this time last year (although if you're in Scotland or the North you may have had some of the white stuff over the last couple of days) but a cold snap is bound to be just around the corner. Staying snug and protecting your precious cargo against the elements is something that concerns many parents while using a sling or carrier in the winter, and to help you stay warm we've increased our range of babywearing clothing with some fabulous products from Mamalila. While obviously being incredibly useful and practical accessories for babywearing, the real beauty of these babywearing coats is they can be used for many years meaning they are worth every penny!

Beco Butterfly Restocked and NEW Beco Gemini

We now have the Beco Butterfly back in stock, including a new print 'Luna' (right) which is a lovely subtle print on Espresso. For people looking for something plainer we also have solid 'Metro Black' and 'Espresso'. The Beco Butterfly is a buckle carrier which is suitable from birth due to the removable infant insert which holds the baby higher in the carrier while still supporting them in the correct seated position. The infant insert also secures your baby inside the carrier, even when the waistbelt is open which means the carrier can be passed between parents without the need to remove the baby first! Will also carry toddlers up to 45lbs in a front or back carry. Supplied with a removable sleephood and chestbelt as well as comprehensive instructions in both booklet and DVD format.

Boba Carrier and Boba Wrap now in stock

We're having a busy week at Big Mama HQ! Lots of new stock has arrived - we've restocked some of our popular slings and carriers as well as introducing a new brand.

Boba Carrier in 'Tweet'
New to the Big Mama Slings range are two products from Boba. The Boba Wrap (formerly known as Sleepy Wrap) is a stretchy wrap style sling - easy to use, the perfect carrier for newborns and is guaranteed to keep your baby nice and snug (and you hands-free) in the coming months. Available in a range of six plain colours that will suit both mums and dads. The Boba 3G Classic Baby Carrier (right) is a buckle carrier which, unlike most buckle carriers, is suitable from birth (7lbs) without the need for a separate insert or accessory. Fabulously supportive, the Boba 3G has the same basic design of the original Boba Carrier that is so popular, but with a number of new features, including innovative foot straps to support the legs of older children, and is available in both patterned and plain designs.

Babyhawk Restocked and Huggalugs Bundles

We have had a delivery here at Big Mama HQ from across the pond and now have the three fabulous Babyhawk products - Babyhawk Mei Tai (available in 4 designs), Toddlerhawk Mei Tai (available in 1 design) and Babyhawk Oh Snap! (available in 2 designs) - back in stock.

The two Mei Tais are very popular and rightly so. With a fabric panel in wonderful prints but reversing to a plain carrier they offer versatility as well as being incredibly comfortable for parent and child. The Oh Snap! is one of the most adjustable buckle carriers we've seen - the ingenious buckle system on the waist belt makes it even easier to get a great fit for parents of a range of sizes.

Warning - Counterfeit Moby Wraps

In recent months there has been an increasing amount of fake slings and carriers sold online. These are often made with cheap, unsuitable materials which have not been safety tested, and also may contain toxins in the fabric which are harmful to your baby. We have received the following announcement regarding counterfeit Moby Wraps:

Tuesday, December 21, 2010


Back in stock in four lovely gender neutral colours (Charcoal, Black, Olive Green and Chocolate Brown), the Tricot-Slen Stretchy Wrap is gorgeously soft, and the cosy, supportive jersey cotton is perfect for keeping your little one snuggled up warm in the bitterly cold weather we are all having at the moment while still leaving you totally hands free. Suitable from newborn to minimum 6-9 months (depending on the weight of your baby) there are several possible carrying positions including breastfeeding. These are very popular so get yours quick!

The MaM Deluxe Babywearing Cover and the Mamajacket are both fabulous weapons against the cold and will keep you and your child toasty when slinging out and about. Or how about some Huggalugs which are a great extra layer on little legs either under trousers or over socks/tights for babies in slings, toddling little ones or even young children out playing in the snow.

New in Stock!!

Been a bit quiet on the blogging front recently so apologies for that. There have been some lovely new things arriving at Big Mama HQ recently with more on the way....

Firstly we have the Ergo Baby Carrier (right) back in stock. This was the first two shouldered carrier I owned when my now 6 year old was about 7 months old and it was used a lot so it was great to be able to give the new design a try. My only sling "baby" is two and a half but the padding and supportive waistbelt meant it was incredibly comfortable for a back carry.The new design of sleep hood is brilliant and seems to support their head really well and the strong snaps on the shoulder straps it fastens to make it feel secure and not likely to pop off if they wriggle in their sleep. Available in three practical colours with accessories coming soon.
