As you’ll see from our walks we love taking Ashley out in our backpack carrier, as it means we can go off the beaten track. We’ve always been big fans of carriers ever since Ashley was little.
I get sent a lot of questions about baby/toddler carriers so I’ve asked Jodie from Jenni Bean Consultancy CIC (JBC) to provide a guide to safe babywearing and how to choose a suitable carrier. JBC work to support families in the Marlow and High Wycombe area with baby carrying. They work with families on a ‘one to one’ basis, as well as providing online services, workshops and social meets.
We took the opportunity to combine our daily walk with a visit to Home Roots charity stall in Flackwell Heath to pick up some of their incredible sausage rolls. At the stall you’ll also find carrot cake and soup, but you need to get there early as it sells out quickly! The walk itself is full of incredible views, a field full of sheep and woodland.
Sometimes it takes a lockdown to make us slow down and appreciate the local walks that surround us. If you’ve followed me for a while you’ll know I love to fit in loads of activities every week! I’m also quite happy driving up to an hour to get there, so we end up here there and everywhere. As the tier 4 guidance is to stay local we’ve been having lazier mornings and getting out for a walk or trip to the park in the afternoon. Today we went to Hodgemoor Woods which is between Amersham, Chalfont St Giles and Seer Green.
