We all love nosying at the celebrities' lives, and increasingly they're using slings to carry their babies. Some of them have clearly had some good advice and are doing it brilliantly, while others.... well, it makes us want to jump into the photos and fix them! Here's a comparison of three actors using a very popular soft structured carrier
, the Ergo.
Mira Sorvino has started so well by getting an Ergobaby carrier - easy to use, long-lasting and value for money. But if you think the baby doesn't look comfortable, we'd agree! No idea how that leg ended up down inside the waistband, but it really isn't supposed to be there. This carrier needs tightening up at the waist band and at the shoulder straps, and the child needs to be put in properly. Nice colour Ergo though!
Time to swoon, ladies, it's Orlando Bloom with a squish! Full marks for effort, but unfortunately he hasn't realised that the Ergo isn't designed to carry a newborn without the infant insert. You can see that he's having to hold the baby's head because it's not properly supported by the sling. When your sling is on right, you shouldn't have to use your hands to keep the baby in!
Julia Roberts has got it sorted though. Her child is in a nice knee-to-knee seat, and the sling is tight at the waistband and shoulder straps. Julia is holding the child's hat on for privacy, rather than supporting her head - an older baby can manage her own head support.
