Hello! I’m Rebecca, 24 years old and living in North Yorkshire with my 2 beautiful son’s Alfie and Woody and my fiancé Steve. I’m a stay at home mummy. I have a successful Instagram account and YouTube channel related to my lifestyle, beauty, fashion and other bits in between such as my crazy non-stop mummy life.
What were your very first thoughts after your baby was born?
I just wanted to cuddle him forever. They grow so quickly and I want to enjoy our little bubble for as long as possible.
What was your biggest challenge in the first few weeks with your baby?
The lack of sleep and balancing life with two children was hard at first.
When did you first try a wrap or baby carrier?
After about a week of Woody being born, we began using the Izmi baby carrier. I love going out walking with Alfie and Steve so we wanted to test Woody in the carrier and I loved it from day one.
How have your thoughts about babywearing changed since that first experience?
They have completely changed! I didn’t carry Alfie much but this time around it’s been great to pop Woody in the carrier if he’s grumpy or clingy. It’s also so useful for when I‘ve got things I need to get done and when I need to attend to Alfie.
How did you come to know about Izmi?
Working with Cheeky Rascals I was kindly sent the carrier, I’d never even heard of it before where it’s a fairly new brand but I can honestly say it’s amazing! I’ve tried various different carriers and fabric wraps but this carrier is my all time favourite.
Do you feel that using Izmi products has made a positive impact on you and your baby?
Yes, massively! It’s so easy to use and super comfy! We couldn’t live without it.
What advice would you give to parents who are thinking about buying a wrap or baby carrier?
Do it! Buy it now or you’ll regret it- it’s fabulous. There are multiple options so just find what’s right for you.
What is the one thing you wish you’d known before you became a parent?
Life is too short to not cherish every day.
Three words to describe life before parenthood and three to describe life post-parenthood?
Life before- lazy, boring and carefree
Life after- amazing, happy and exciting
What is that one piece of advice you’d like to offer new parents or parents to be?
You will get to sleep properly one day so cherish those sleepless nights and a tiny little baby to cuddle.
