I love these pictures. They bring back such happy memories for me of taking country walks with my children when they were little, and more recently with my friend and her lovely bunch.

Over lockdown one of my bubble friends has been wearing a baby carrier every time we’ve been walking together. A big part of me feels for her because I remember only too well how heavy those babies are when you’re carrying them around for hours!

Also though, it’s such a naturally healthy thing to do; I think of it as nature’s way of ensuring you get lots of strong lean muscle by giving you regular weight bearing exercise!

Who needs a back pack filled with weights, when you have a hearty sized wriggly person attached to your front, one or more other little rascals trying to run off excitedly into the distance and your pockets or handbag filled with nutritious drinks and snacks?! Hard work it may be but so precious too.
