I'll admit, that when we were getting everything ready for when Isabelle arrived, we didn't put much thought into a baby carrier. Admittedly, we went cheap. £10.99 cheap to be precise. And in fairness, I didn't actually mind the carrier that we had. If you want to read more about me and my experiences with the carrier, then feel free to read this.
Well, here's something I never thought I'd say, "today, we sat on the This Morning sofa and had a chat with Amanda Holden and Ben Sheppard." It all started last week. Someone from the Wales Online asked me whether it would be ok to run my postnatal depression story on the website accompanied by a [...]
So, this is your toolkit, survival guide, whatever name you want to give it, to help beat postnatal depression. Some of what I'll cover here will also help with depression in general. Here is the list of things I've covered so far, I'll admit there isn't a lot, but this is quite new, feel free [...]
We were never supposed to do this alone. Raising a child was something that the whole tribe likely would have taken a role in. And as for the mother, she would've been surrounded by others who had either been there before, or ones who were in the same boat as she was.

I've said it once, and I'll say it again, I love taking Isabelle away. It was one of the things that kick started my recovery from postnatal depression, and it's something that we've tried to do on a semi-regular basis. Even if it is only for two nights like this was. But going away together as a family is a great way to get away from all the distractions and focus on the three of us.
I'll be honest, when we first had Isabelle, I didn't really have much intention to wear my baby carrier. I think we just bought it as it was on our list of things to get, much like all the bottle related things that we've since sold. I only went cheap, and just spend £10.99 on eBay, which is incredibly cheap compared to the ones you can get on Mothercare.
