Sling Friday 19/01/2018


More like Sling Friday/Saturday/Sunday … Friday’s Library session at Hasland was fabulous; some of the qualified peer supporters excelled themselves with their sensitive and competent work; some of the trainee peer supporters moved up a league.  You know who you are folks!!  Anna from DCHS BF Support was able to attend, she got to see some of ‘her’ mums&babies moving forwards, and I got to spend a few minutes furthering her (already good) sling skills.  Lovely also to see Sean & Evony (Evony’s mum is back at work so Evony’s dad is coming to Library instead – fantastic to have…

Twin Carrying


Twins!  Two of everything, and where’s that extra pair of hands when you need it? There are lots of options for carrying twins, including some which are specifically designed for carrying two together.

Sling Friday, Twins

Sling Friday January 12th 2018

Happy New Year 2018


There’s a lot of work left to do on this site, most of the basic Library content is in place but it’s neither personalised nor pretty, and I’m still working out how to use the gallery plug-in that will make the Library Catalogue a reality.  The Ways to Carry Consultancy content is in the very early stages, but it’ll get there.


I made a website…


The content for this website has been buzzing around in my head for EVER, but finally I got the tech support to set up the basic structure and I am now adding the content.  Work in Progress !!
