Love carries on – Ergobaby in Malta 

The one piece of baby equipment I cannot live without. Thanks to Malta Mum and Elisavet Arkolaki for saving my back!‘ – Maureen Saguna, blogger on Island Fairy and Sunday Circle writer.

Click here for the full Ergobaby Original baby carrier (Teal colour) review by Maureen.



‘I found the Ergobaby carrier to be very comfortable. Ella weighs around 8 kilos, she can start to feel heavy after holding her for a long while, especially if she starts squirming. I could barely feel her weight whilst using the carrier, my back felt supported and there was no pull on my neck muscles either.’

times of maltaInternational Babywearing Week

Did you know that babies who are carried cry an average of 43 per cent less? Studies have also shown that physical closeness facilitates your baby’s transition to the outside world and stabilises the baby’s heart rate and temperature. In other words, babywearing is better for your child during the first formative months than any pushchair can ever be.

Robin’s babies (an Ergobaby doll carrier review)

 I have mentioned before how much Robin loves her baby dolls. She’s got a few and they all get a turn to play with their mummy. The rest of the time, they’re either tucked in her bed or wrapped in a blanket, waiting to be taken out with the rest of the family. Having been worn for most of her first two years of life, she knows and loves the feeling of being carried close to me or her dad and she makes sure her babies know it too. More here.

Juppy reviewAlmost a toddler (a Juppy Babywalker review)

At almost 15 months, Ivy is becoming increasingly mobile. She climbs on chairs, sofas, stools, beds and has mercifully learned to get off them too. I am sure that under all the red dye, my hair will be completely white by the time she’s five. She still is quite a chunk of a baby and hasn’t taken her first steps yet but can get around on a tricycle and she cruises along the furniture wherever she can hold herself up.

Ergo – This is my favourite item of all. Ivy is two now and walks most of the time, but I still carry an Ergobaby in the car and have one at home.

On the subject of bullying in schools, MaltaToday

‘Elisavet Arkolaki, who as founder of the online portal Malta Mum – a discussion forum for Maltese mothers – is familiar with the grievances of many local parents, describes bullying as being “different from normal social conflict, and one that requires an adult’s intervention”. “In bullying, what happens most of the time is that someone’s identity is attacked – as in ‘you are silly’, ‘you have big ears’.
