Lifft™ www.lifftslings.com baby slings are delighted to announce that singer Cerys Matthews is a big fan of the Lifft™ Sling. Lifft™ recently received an email from Cerys ‘singing’ the sling’s praises:
”We use it every time we go out. It’s perfect for keeping the little one warm in this freezing weather – I had a similar sling with my first child but it had a buckle fitting and I never really felt 100 per cent sure that this couldn’t one day just open, that it hadn’t been closed properly. This sling feels so much more secure and we love how if feels and looks too!” Cerys Matthews January 2010
The Lifft™ sling™ is believed to be the only sling scientifically proven to improve posture. With up to 80% of pregnant women and new mums suffering from backache- carrying a baby, and then a toddler, can only exacerbate this. In a study by The Biomechanical Testing Facilities in the North West University of Central Lancashire, it found that the sling encourages the baby’s weight to be spread evenly across the wearer’s body. Thus, using the Lifft™ Sling clearly reduces the lateral trunk flexion (sideways bending) when walking and standing, reducing the potentially damaging load on the wearer’s lower back and helping more symmetrical walking patterns.
The sling encourages a more natural style of parenting, and increased baby bonding due to the physical closeness experienced when wearing a Lifft Sling which promotes bonding between the wearer and baby.
It provides a familiar motion to that of the womb. The wearer’s heartbeat and voice soothe the baby which can help with them crying less and to ease symptoms of colic.
The sling has no buckles, clips or straps to do up, meaning the sling can be used without help and can be put on with just one hand – also allowing for fuss-free and discreet breastfeeding.
The sling is designed to fit the wearer as the fit of a baby sling is crucial to protect both the wearer’s and baby’s posture, so the Lifft™ sling is available in a multitude of sizes and styles, for both mums’ and dads’ shape (and taste!). It comes in a variety of sizes from 6 through to 22 for ladies, or S through to XL for men. Over and above this, particular sizes can also be made specifically for you and your individual shape and size.
At £49.99 the Lifft™ sling is a great value-for-money accessory as it can be used in a range of positions, so it is suitable for your little one from birth right through to toddlerhood to approx 3 years of age – and of course used again for any newborns to come!
Additionally, the sling is machine washable, designed and made in the UK with materials sourced in the UK where possible – and folds down to the size of a nappy – perfect for squeezing into your bag when on the run.
