Little did I know how much I would need a product like Sleepbelt until I didn’t have it. With little man making his appearance at 35 weeks, I was completely unprepared for having a “preemie”. Although he was considered late pre-term and everything was absolutely great with his weight and breathing, he is still considered a preemie. What I didn’t know about preemie babies was that they want nothing more than to be right next to you skin to skin and to be held close. I really want to hold them close when they are little because they aren’t little for too long and he is also my last.
The only problem with having a baby on you all the time is it’s hard to get any work done on the blog or things around the house. Thankfully, Sleepbelt came to my rescue. I didn’t even know about Sleepbelt and I had spent the better part of a day looking for some kind of “kangaroo care” idea that would allow baby to be close while allowing me the freedom to use my hands. I didn’t have any luck for a few reasons like they didn’t make them big enough for this plus size mommy or they were shipping from the US and would cost me a small fortune.
I posted a photo on Instagram of me holding my son on my chest under my t-shirt and a reader tagged me telling me I needed to check out Sleepbelt. The wonderful lady behind Sleepbelt took notice of the post and told me she would like to send one to me and I was all in! Best product I have ever used and only wish I had when my previous 4 babes were born. There is nothing better than having skin to skin with my son and still having my hands free for reading, using my phone or even working on the blog.
Not only has it been a lifesaver for me, but my husband has been able to bond with his son as well while still being able to do what he loves, playing his PS4. Not only does it give me a break, baby gets the closeness he craves and daddy gets to cuddle too.
If you are a new mom, an experienced mom having or have had another baby, a preemie mom or a dad that wants to hold baby close too, this product is 100% for you. The wonderful lady behind Sleepbelt wants to give one of my readers the chance to win one of their very own! Enter below:
