I am a mum to 2 boys, I didnโ€™t really babywear with my 1st as I had bad back and hip problems and didnโ€™t realise how many options were available to me. After waiting to try and get my problems sorted we decided not to hold on any longer to try for baby number 2 as we werenโ€™t getting any younger!! Magically (well, it feels like magic to me) during pregnancy number 2 my back and hip problems decreased. I will add that I have seen multiple specialists over the last 4 years and had scans and treatments to no avail ๐Ÿ˜ฆ So this was great, after the birth I expected things to go back to the way they were but 9 months on and I am still managing to carry my bouncing baby boy and am getting out and about and walking as much as I can.ย ๐Ÿ™‚ I am not better, I have a permanently sore back and cannot stand still or walk for long on hard surfaces and my right shoulder is agony a lot of the time but I am persevering and I am determined to get up a Munro this year (big mountains in Scotland) as this is something I used to enjoy before having kids.

I am hoping that in writing this blog, even if it’s ย just for my benefit I will see this through!! Plus, we are getting out and about to places I didnโ€™t think I would ever get to again and want to share my pictures of this and keep a record for myself and my boys. xx
