Enjoy the closeness and freedom that carrying your child brings with this lovely print from SleepyNico. Monty is an adorable sheep design and the name was chosen by our competition winner Anna Hughes.
"I think you need to call the carrier
Montauciel (or Monty for short!)
The french translation is ‘climb to the sky’ which has a really nice metaphorical message for our little people. It’s also however a very literal name given to a very famous 18th century sheep who was used as a guinea pig in the first ever hot air balloon flight in the skies above Paris! Along with a duck and a rooster they flew 2 miles, reaching an altitude of 1500 feet and all landed safely!
The balloon they flew in was later used for the first piloted flight in history."
Thank you Anna, we love the story and name.
