I usually feel babywearing should happen in ease. I don’t have interest in wraps or meh-dais as I feel soft structured carriers(SSCs) are easy to handle when compared to other types. When Baby A was 2 months old the call of Anmol travel hug programme came and I asked them to push it to few months later as I wanted to try their SSCs as I own a ringsling and I wasn’t ready to invest in a carrier then. When Baby A was 6 months old they asked us if we would be able to try the WCSSC. Wow what an opportunity it was. I received our WCSSC in the mid of January and it was neatly packed in a cardboard box. The box consisted of
1.An Anmol Basic Orange Full WCSSC
Baby A loves bright colours and when I unpacked the package baby A’s eyes were sparkling with joy to look at the bright Orange colour infront of her. She grabbed the WCSSC from my hands and it was a result from the grabbing milestone which she achieved a month before. It was sooo gorgeous to see and my camera skills didn’t do the justice :p. When this was in my hands I just wanted to know about the history of Anmol and to my surprise I came to know that it is the FIRST CERTIFIED INDIAN BUCKLED BABYCARRIER Compliant with the standards recommended by BCIA. When I read this the respect I had for ANMOL roseup. Anmol aims to use lot of handwoven and handworked fabric panel with natural dyes which are safe for babies and it can be used from 7kgs to 20kgs. It allows both the front and back carries and its machine washable which is a big plus.
The Orange Full WCSSC is my all time favourite its just because of it being lighter and it being summer I would prefer this for its lighter and nicer feel. As F had to leave out of country in a weeks’ time I had a lovable opportunity to explore for the trips and shopping.
Now lets have a look at each and everything in detail:
The buckles comprises of a double lock system and a third elastic lock which is completely safe and an added advantage which makes a mamma feel secure.
- Storage Space:
The special space which is available in the ANMOL is that it has a storage space which is small on the waistbelt where I had my keys and a small money purse and few people were lucky enough to carry their mobiles.
- The hood:
The hood can be used for neck support and can be used as a sunshade during sunny and it can be used to cover while we are nursing..
- The body panel:
The panel has a rich look and the orange colour attracted Baby A and it was very comfortable to carry her.
The padding attached to them is light and it doesn’t make us feel its bulky.
As I said earlier we did a complete shopping with our anmol and we lived, walked, nursed ,cried with anmol literally. I wore for around 9+hours and it was soooo comfortable and it’s a boon I can say.
The carrier has two options to carry the bubs. Front carry and back carry. I preferred front carry as its recommended that only the babies attain a stage where they can sit unassisted can be made to sit back,. As I felt it needs a learning curve I preferred front carry and we rocked in it.
Disclaimer: This Carrier was sent to me as a part of the Anmol Travel Hug program and the review is made on a honest basis and I used it extensively for a period of 6 days and I felt very comfortable and I do recommend my fellow mommies to start your babywearing with anmol.
