Small details that changes your life
A few days ago, Mariola, mother of Mariola and Gabriela, two five-month-old twins who are eager to learn and explore the world, told us what it meant to her and her husband to put Ride&Go Baby in their BabyBjörn bouncers.
“It’s one of those little things that change your life,” said Lucía. And she was not exaggerating. Only those who have experienced multiple births know what it’s like to take care of two little ones with the same needs at the same time.
“Since my husband went to work, I used to run from one room to another because I had forgotten the feeding bottle, nappy or anything else and I was anxious about leaving them alone for a minute”, Lucía explained. “And if I wanted to take them with me to another room, I would either carry the bouncer with me, or I would hold them in my arms, even at the risk of them crying when I left them again. And all that multiplied by two, which added to the fatigue caused by the few hours of sleep, made it very hard for me”.
Fortunately, that has changed thanks to Ride&Go Baby. Now Mariola only has to push her BabyBjörn bouncers to take Mariola and Gabriela with her anywhere in the house. “It’s very convenient, I can even move both bouncers at the same time, which saves me a lot of travel”.
“As they are still too young to use the highchair, I take them with me to the kitchen and take the opportunity to prepare some food while I sing them songs or play percussions with the cutlery. If they are calm, sometimes I can even eat without rushing, although that rarely happens,” she confesses with a laugh.
Ride&Go Baby gives her autonomy when it comes to small daily tasks such as making the bed, putting the washing machine on or answering the phone. “Before, I had to wait for someone to be at home to do something as basic as taking a shower, because when the children are asleep, I try to recharge my batteries too. But now I can push my BabyBjörn to the bathroom and take a quick shower with the peace of mind of knowing how the kids are doing at all times.
Another advantage of Ride&Go Baby is that if one of the children falls asleep in their BabyBjörn, Mariola can comfortably carry them to their bedroom without any sudden movements or changes in height. The wheels turn easily and absorb a large part of the movements caused by the unevenness of the floor, so they do not disturb the child’s sleep.
“My parents have also become fans of the wheels,” Mariola jokes. “Although they don’t come home as much as I’d like because of current circumstances, it’s very convenient for them to move the bouncers and move them closer to the sofa or a chair, so they can enjoy the children while keeping their distance.
“I would definitely recommend Ride&Go Baby to all parents who have a BabyBjörn or are thinking about buying a baby bouncer. It is making life easier for us in many ways, which is exactly what we need at the moment. A friend gave it to us when our children were born and it’s definitely been a real discovery!
