A new sling: The Hug-a-Bub


Yesterday, Anna was off work, meeting some fellow
sling-maniacs. Why was she off work on a Thursday? Well, I
went to the funeral of my oldest friends father. The weather
was fantastic, and the ceremony and memorial were very
moving. I dont think I've ever seen so many people in a
church, the turn-up was incredible. Family, friends and
business associates. They were all there.

But I digress.

Last night after I came home, Anna showed me a new sling
which we got to borrow- the Hug-a-Bub (http://www.hugabub.com), an
Australian variant of the classic long sling.

Its so comfortable! I didnt think there would be a day when
I would say to Anna "We have to buy one of these!" without
even thinking about it. Another great thing about it is that
its long enough for me to use easily. The other slings I've
tried are all a little bit too short- when I place Ayumi on my
stomach, I cant tie the knot under her- I have to have an
unwieldly knot on my back. With the Hug-a-bub, this wasnt a

So you slingless daddies out there- you should really give
this sling a try!
