    Default Taking newborn to a wedding...question!

    I am going to a wedding 2 weeks after this bub is born (I am having a c/section) but I don't want to take my big twin pram. What else can I get to carry her in that is light and compact? I was thinking of buying a second hand capsule?? I wont use it in the car but just to put her in and let her sleep in while at the wedding...wdyt?

    Any other ideas?

    Can you borrow a single pram from someone?

    A capsule sounds fine, you can hire them from the council usually so you might be able to hire one just for the night. How come you can't use yours, doesn't it come out of the car?

    I know your not into babywearing but if it's an option you'd consider I am happy to lend you a ring sling I bought for a wedding I was going to go to when DD was 8 weeks, didn't end up going but still have it, it's quiet nice there are a few pictures of it on my FB, the natural colored one with the silk edging, not the purple one!

    I'm not sure if you specifically mean prams or not, but at that age I would probably have them in a sling/wrap, so I am not lugging around something big and cumbersome (especially after a C/s) and also so they could sleep soundly against me. I think your capsule idea's good too, toherwise a single pram as Thermolicious suggested.

    FL- Cheers I didn't even think of hiring!!

    RE babywearing- I can't. My back is so bad that even carrying the baby is too much for me so any sling/ergo sort of thing kills me, plus Im not really one to enjoy having the on me lol. I was thinking at least with something I could carry I can put it down when it gets too much.

    I thought of borrowing a pram but Im a bit of a pram snob and I dont think there will be much room for a pram in the reception venue.
