    Default Easy pop in and out of shops

    I have a baby, a toddler and an older kid. I really don't like using my stroller or pram when I just need to pick one or two things up from a shop, so I'm looking at ring slings. I want one good for summer, so I've decided either a Comfy Joey or a Sakura Bloom ring sling. Which would you choose and why? I'm so indecisive lol

    A ring sling! I don't know what a comfy joey is so can't compare but for bub #1 our baby breeze sling lived in the nappy bag and I used it all the time when in town. For this bub I've swapped it with a silk ring sling and used that all the time when she was little. It is so quick and easy to get bub our of the car seat, pop her on my shoulder and then slide her down into the sling. Same too when putting her back - just grab the fabric under her bum and lift it over her head then put her into the car seat.

    I haven't used either of those brands. Mine is a lightweight cotton one by Cuddles n Cloth, I got it 6 years ago when they were just starting as a WAHM ebay business. They have their own au website now. Personally, I would prefer to buy local over US.

    I did check out the two you list, they both fan well across the shoulder. The Comfy Joey website has every photo showing it being worn incorrectly (it would dig into your neck) and I would not get one from there just because of that, as it says to me they are more concerned with how nice their slings look than if you are actually using them correctly.

    They're both available locally to me in WA, so I might call one of the stores and see if I can try one. I think both store owners I can find teach, so they may help me too *feeling excited!

    Sakura bloom have a better reputation. I bought a woven wrap (didymos) conversion ring sling from Gold Dust Baby, I love it!

    I just heard there's a library, so I'm going to try a Sakura Bloom. I think the others are just new here. I heard of a few bad experiences with the one you named
