Yes, the title may be a bit misleading since in both of these pictures I’ve got my arms around my son but there aren’t many times you’ll catch me with my arms away from him if he is near me. I got the chance to review the baby slings called, “SlingLings” and I can tell you that not only are they great but the customer service is on top. I ordered my sling and waited for it to arrive, however it did not fit. (a bit too big) The customer service told me to simply place it back in the bag it came in and send it back and they’d send me another one. (you do pay to ship it back but they do replace it for ya)
I waited for it to arrive in the mail and once it did we went everywhere with it. If I went somewhere with Little A, so did the bag with the sling in it….sometimes without the bag.
The sling comes in a small zip up bag with a handle, which makes carrying it easy. Of course if you dont’ want to bring everything, toss the sling into your purse or diaper bag (very light weight and fits perfectly) and pull it out whenever you need it.
Our sling was the Khaki padded Stretch Twill, which goes with practically anything and if the man in the family really wanted to wear it he could. There are over 50 different types to choose from, some women and some neutral. While some babies like to be tucked into the sling, others do NOT. My son seems to be one of those that don’t, as you can see by the pictures. He loves the Kangaroo pouch position you see on the side and the hip one. I do find that that Kangaroo feels more secure and I tend to drop my arms more. Remember, this is coming from a woman that always carried her children (I have four) in a stroller or a backpack carrier. Instead of digging out the stroller to go down the block I simply carry him around in the sling and off we go.
If you are looking for a baby sling, check them out and see which one will match your wardrobe. Carrying a baby is as natural as anything and it can go just about anywhere…unlike a stroller.
