BabyDink Real Mum Stories Q & A #2

  • 3 min read

We are thrilled to launch our second interview in our 'Real Reviews' blog series, it is with the intention of providing real life baby wearing experiences - shared by YOU our BabyDink community!

Each month, we will be asking a parent or caregiver that has used the BabyDink Classic Organic Newborn Baby Carrier, asking a series of questions centered around babywearing.

By sharing common experiences, shedding light on the joys and benefits of babywearing from those who have actually embraced it, we hope that the answers shared may help to answer the questions of prospective parents.

It offers a glimpse into the simple, daily moments where babywearing with a BabyDink carrier can help to make that little bit easier. 

Celebrating life with a newborn and the joy of parenthood, and sharing a few 'babywearing hacks' along the way.

This week we hear from mama-of-three beautiful boys, Joanna - Jo lives in gorgeous  Mount Martha, Victoria with her Husband Mark and three little fella's, Ned, Jack & baby Gus. Jo has used a BabyDink carrier with two of her babies, after attempting to use a wrap carrier with her first, Ned. She shares her experiences of using her BabyDink newborn baby carrier, with our founder & CEO Jennie McAlpine.


Hello Lovely Jo, tell us what you knew about BabyWearing before the arrival of bub?

Mainly that it was convenient for when your baby wanted to be held and you needed your hands free

What was it about BabyWearing that appealed to you, for your family?

The ability to be out and about. In and out of the car and to be able to quickly transfer my baby from the car to carrier, whilst keeping them settled. Preferably without needing anyone else to help me do it. 

 Did you research many carrier brands? 

Not really no. But I had used (or attempted to!) a wrap version for my first born. All I did was go into a Baby Bunting store and look at the overwhelming wall of carriers that were available. 

So what made BabyDink the right choice for you?

Just the ease of putting it on. After experiencing the difficulty of tying a wrap version previously, which never made me feel like my baby was secure and safe. BabyDink resolved those issues for me. 

What was the most important consideration for you when choosing your baby carrier?

It just had to be simple to use. I needed to be able to put it on and off, and baby in, with no-one else required 

What would you say are the top 3 benefits that using your BabyDink baby carrier gives you?

Definitely having my hands free to help my other two children with whatever they need. As well as being able to complete tasks at home that I would otherwise not be able to, if I was having to hold my baby with with arms. I love feeling that we are still cuddling all the time and are so close.

What’s your favourite thing about BabyDink? 

How fast you can get your baby in!

How often would you say you use it?

Easily 4-5 days of the week
