I fell in love with baby wearing when Little Miss H was six months old and I bought my first wrap. I soon became obsessed but I was sad that I hadn’t known about the benefits of baby wearing earlier.
As my pregnancy with Little Mister H progressed I became more and more excited by the idea of wearing a newborn. I couldn’t wait to have our little bundle of squishiness all wrapped up next to me.
Then a few months before Little Mister H was born I was contacted by the baby wearing experts We Made Me. I was thrilled that they wanted to work with me to promote the amazing benefits of carrying your child in a sling, wrap or carrier. And I was looking forward to trying their fabulous products; the Wuti Wrap, the Pao Carrier and the Soohu Sling.
The idea of family is an integral part of the We Made Me brand. And the idea of a family became more and more important to me as we struggled to have our second child. But then in July this year, Little Mister H arrived on the scene and the family we had yearned for was complete.
So in celebration of our gorgeous family and my partnership with We Made Me, I have decided to share a tongue in cheek interview with Little Mister H. And as you would expect from a child that we made, Little Mister H is full of character and he certainly has a lot to say. (I don’t know where he gets it from!)

A special We Made Me interview with Little Mister H
Hello, thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to chat with us today.
You’re welcome but I am afraid that we will need to be quick. I am very busy and important. There just aren’t enough hours in the day. My female servant, henceforth known as The Mummy, says there are only 24 hours in every day. Ridiculous!
My plans for today include napping, eating, burping, weeing and pooing. I also need to mediate between two of my elephant toys who are currently arguing over should occupy the prime location in my cot bed.
Congratulations on your entrance into this world. How was your journey here?
My journey into this world was very quick. Once I had notified the relevant authorities that I was planning to arrive 11 days early I saw no point in delaying the inevitable.
I was fortunate that the traffic was clear and there weren’t any delays. So my journey took less than three hours.
Are you happy here? What are your favourite things about this world?
I am very happy, thank you. Life seems to live up to my high standards.
My home is pleasant. It can be messy when The Mummy is around. But thankfully my male servant, or The Daddy, keeps a much tidier house.
A sweet little girl (The Sister) provides daily entertainment. She sings silly songs and has a unique set of dance moves.
The Mummy and The Daddy can be infuriating and they often reduce me to tears. But they mean well and they are loving and lovable.
The Mummy frequently smothers me with kisses and tells me she loves me. Shockingly this behaviour makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.
The Daddy is excellent at giving cuddles. My favourite evening pastime is to sit on his lap and watch as he unsuccessfully manages a football team in the computer game Championship Manager.
What happens during a day in the life of Little Mister H?
I never set an alarm. Instead I wake daily between 04.00 and 06.00.
The Mummy changes my nappy. And provides me with a detailed and humiliating account of the content of my underwear. Once washed and dressed I am given breakfast in bed.
After breakfast, The Mummy places me in my cot so that she is able to administer to the needs of The Sister. It is during this time that I hold important meetings with the numerous soft toys who rent ground space in my bedroom. I will often have a little snooze as well.
The Mummy tries to have us out of the door by 08.30 so that we can take The Sister to pre-school. I am placed in a genius invention called the Wuti Wrap for this journey. This is the ONLY way to travel on the school run.
The rest of the day is filled with tummy time, kicking my legs and arms around, catnaps, feeding and having all my needs met by The Mummy.
I tend to become very restless and ratty towards late afternoon. At this point, The Mummy once again places me in the Wuti Wrap so that I can have a snooze while she looks after The Sister. Once The Sister has been fed, bathed and put to bed I like to wake up and listen to The Daddy tell me about his day.
I then spend the evening with The Mummy and The Daddy until I go to bed between 21.30 and midnight.
What has been your biggest achievement to date?
The Mummy says that my biggest achievement has been learning to smile. She also tells me that I am a very clever boy because I have a very strong neck and I am able to hold my head up.
The Daddy believes my greatest achievement is sleeping through the night. He is also proud of the time that I peed in my mouth.
I believe that my best accomplishment has been my ability to fall asleep every time I am carried in the Wuti Wrap.
What are your plans for the next few months?
I am going on holiday twice during the next few months.
Next month we are going for a long weekend in Dorset and then in November, The Daddy will be driving us to the stunning Bluestone National Park Resort in Pembrokeshire. I am very excited. It will be great to explore more of the UK. And I hope that both trips will be relaxing and I will return home rejuvenated and ready for the run-up to Christmas.
I also plan to graduate from the Wuti Wrap to the Soohu Sling and the Pao Carrier. These forms of baby transport have received rave reviews. And I’m looking forward to trying them out.
There you have it! Our little man is quite the character but he is also completely adorable.
Do you baby wear? Have you heard about the company We Made Me or the wonderful Wuti Wrap?
