For me personally, babywearing is something that I feel really started to make a big difference with my postnatal depression. In essence, it gave me and Isabelle something to do together that she actually loved. Not only that, but it kept us connected and close whenever I did it.
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.
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 [...]
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.
