"Made in the UK"
I'm a firm supporter of fair trade. But what about British businesses - do we really need to be importing so many goods from far-flung corners of the globe? Supporting local businesses is one of the ways to help safeguard the future of next generations. Here is a pick and mix of British made goods for an eco-friendly lifestyle.

"This sling is great for shopping and walking, as it takes just a minute to put on. It's fabric and as there are no straps, your handbag doesn't slip off your shoulder. It feels comfortable and secure - you can pull it as tight as you like. Theo was very happy awake or asleep in the sling. He could move his head easily and take in the sights when he was awake. I now use it most days. Read more.

Baby wearing is all the rage - just look at Kate Hudson and Gwen Stafani if you don't believe me - and quite rightly so. Carrying your baby in a sling or framed carrier, means they get lots of that lovely physical contact they are programmed to crave.
Lots of cuddles, plus an upright or semi-upright position equals less crying and less colic for junior. While the strapped-on baby approach handily frees up your arms to do useful things. Like drink wine. Or surf t'internet. Or put up those flatpack shelves that have been sitting in the corner of the living room since you were six months pregnant. Obviously. This designer wrap sling in 'ludo' is by Calin Bleu. It is made of microfleece so it is soft and snuggly - and it looks rather fab, too. It costs £43.50 from Natural Nursery.
"Personal Shopper: Baby-wearing"
I'm expecting my second baby in December and really want to sling him/her. I did the pushchair thing the first time and from what I've heard and read, slinging a baby makes lots of things so much easier so am really keen to "baby-wear" this time!

I can't recommend baby-wearing enough. I only wish I had discovered it earlier than I did... Read more
One long piece of very soft fleece that you wrap around in various configurations – it's incredibly versatile. I can put Misty on my back, to the front, facing out or in and across my body for breastfeeding. It was a lot easier than I had expected to use and after a few attempts I soon had the swing of it! The fleecy, brightly coloured fabric makes this sling very cosy and soft for baby; flexible, supportive, easy to wear and warm for the mother, but maybe too hot for summer. The huge variety of positions means just about all babies would be happy to be in this sling and most mothers would be happy to wear it! I have a few back problems but this sling gives my back a lot of support. As long as it's worn correctly and you follow the instructions, this sling is a definite winner.
