Fashion Find: Stylish Slings!

28 September 2009

Baby Sling from

I just love using a sling when I carry my baby.

Very often I get stopped and asked where I bought it, so I thought I’d do a review of some very stylish designs that you can purchase online.

I wrote to Maternalove, an online boutique specialising in maternity wear, nursing clothes, and other accessories. I asked them if I could test out one of their slings, as their range was particularly eye-catching.

People usually comment that slings are just for tiny newborns. But my baby is 6 months old, I carry my baby EVERYWHERE!

When I dash in and out of my car, drop my kids off at school, pick up some milk from the shops, or dash out to queue up at the bank – I don’t like to set up the whole pram ensemble – blankets, nappy bag, dangly toy, water bottle – especially when I’m only out of the car for 10 – 15 minutes.

So when I carry my baby around a lot, my wrists and arms get quite sore. I guess the sling is just a really nice way to ease some of the weight off my arms, and distribute it evenly across my back and shoulders.
