School Safety : Part 1

With school officially started I wanted to take a moment to look at the journey to and from school.  I am lucky enough to be able to walk my daughter to school, it is less than a 10 minute walk.  Whilst it is close there is still a main road to cross and with two daughters to watch safety is very important.

The footpaths near us are very narrow, meaning at some points they are only just wide enough for the pushchair.  I would then have to get my eldest daughter to let go of my hand, in order to continue walking.  This is not something I like to do and as she cannot hold the pushchair, as there is simply not enough space on the pavement, I can be left worrying about her safety even for the split second.

using the Lifft Sling

An alternative to this is a sling or a baby carrier.  The advantage of this is that I have two hands free so one can always hold my eldest and my youngest is kept safe as she is in the sling.  With my youngest 2 years old and very active and curious, she doesn't really like to be strapped in the pushchair let alone a carrier.  Most carriers force the child to face inwards, so they cannot really see much.  Often it is also difficult to adjust the carrier for a child of 2 years who weighs 13Kg and is on the top end of the growth percentiles.

Over 4 years ago I purchased a Lifft sling and have used it for both my daughters.  I was able to breastfeed both my daughters in the Lifft sling too, which was a great bonus.  I find the lifft sling really easy to adjust because it is one piece of material.  There are no straps to tighten or adjust and nothing to tie.  There are also many different positions the Lifft sling can take in order to cater for different age groups.

Lifft slings are now available in a variety of colours.  I feel very lucky to be able to have a Lifft sling to giveaway.  As these are available in different sizes the winner will need to pick the colour they would like from the sizes available, as not all colours maybe available in stock in the given size.

Entry is via Rafflecopter below and closes at Midnight GMT on 26 September 2014 .  Entry is open to UK residents aged 18 or over, for full terms and conditions see the link on the Rafflecopter widget.
