I had sold my Tula two weeks ago because it didnt “feel right”.
Before anyone goes yek eleh action pulak dekni nak step babywearing pro hahahaha, let me explain why it didnt “feel right”.
Dont get me wrong, I love the Tula that I had – its mint colour, its rainbow print, its smooth texture. However deep inside, everytime we went out the Tula gets left in the car because either it was a hassle to put her in the infant insert or we dont want Khalisah to have her back sweating from being in the infant insert AND the tula carrier. I felt as if I had underused the Tula and undermined its beauty (betul, jgn ketawa k). So I sold it to my student’s mum-turned-friend who coincidentally was looking to buy both the Tula carrier and the infant insert. With the money I had, I bought….
The mint lace Lenny Lamb carrier which I really loved from the bottom of my heart. My 11 weeks old Khalisah fit snugly in it (without the need of any infant insert) and sleeps immediately whenever she’s in the Lenny! The wrap convertible was so soft and the print was lace! If anyone ever noticed back then, the theme for my wedding was teal, white and lace hahaha so I am a legit lace-lover! With this Lenny, I really looked after it and sanggup letak tissue atas the hood/kepala Khalisah while eating so that none of the food crumbs would land on any of them (both hood and Khalisah).
A few days after buying the Mint Lace Lenny, I saw this on Instagram:
Apparently a Carouseller was selling this limited edition Purple Sky Lace Lenny Lamb! It was preloved and selling for $265 excluding delivery which was a tad too expensive, IMHO. But I love love love the colour because it was exactly like my wedding decor!
But then again, I already have my Mint Lace one so… No go la eh. That same night, however, I found myself going back to that Sky Lace Lenny’s picture and just.kept.staring! Maybe not my rezeki, the one sold on Carousell was no longer there and it was sold out on the official LL website as well as other US websites.
Since side-lying breastfeeding has granted me to have both hands free and the ability to surf the Internet for as long as Khalisah feeds, yesterday morning after my husband had left for work, I stumbled upon an online babywearing website from Finland which was having post Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale on ALL THEIR CARRIERS! Which meant my Purple Sky Lace LL was on sale too! Texted a friend who was dabbling between buying an LL carrier or a wrap and she decided to buy the Divine Lace LL and we split the shipping cost!
Just like that, I have the love of my life in a form of a carrier. I can’t wait for Khalisah to be in it yay!
That being said, I will be selling my Mint Lace Lenny Lamb Carrier (Baby size) if anybody’s interested! I bought it from another mummy in the sg babywearing fb for $185 and since I had used it for three times already, I am selling it for $170, including courier. Here’s a better, justifiable picture:
UPDATE: SOLD 🙂
