mother’s day

in portugal, mother’s day was a week ago – but only now it reaches the rest of the world :) which means we get to celebrate it twice! today we went to the park with a mama friend and her cute kid!

lovely day, lovely park and a lovely surprise: the baby (& momma) got used to the sling we gave them when she was born last year! the first experience with it was a bit disastrous and we thought it would never be used it again… but actually, lulu says both she and her mom use it quite regularly now!

b.’s grandma takes her to the market in her sling everyday, and to the inquisitive looks she gets, she explains it’s a modern & european thing… :)



i love the concept of the sling – an uncomplicated piece of fabric that holds your baby safe and close to you. in portugal, they were made popular by the talented hands of rosa pomar, who also makes unique and beautiful dolls that make babies (and grownups!) happy all around the world. :)

    Lulu and her baby !!! They’re so cute… Thanks for the beautiful pics, and say hello to her next time you see her !!!

    I like slings too, and if I ever have a baby I’d love to carry him/her around in such a thing. I hardly see any around here; even for tiny little babies, Finnish mothers seem to prefer these huge and heavy carts… Now maybe that’s because it’s complicated to use when you need to wrap your baby in a dozen of layers of clothes all winter long !
