Parent Reviews and Comments
I bought this when my daughter was a newborn, because I found a consultant who offererd to come to my home and give a "demonstration" on how to use it. I was taken aback when she produced a Cabbage Patch Doll to carry out her "demonstration"! Sure, the sling looks easy to use when you have a doll who weighs a couple of hundred grams... With a real baby it's a different story. I never felt comfortable using this sling - I always had one hand holding it across my front. I adjusted it but baby always felt like she was falling out. Can't recommend it.

After getting the hang of using this sling I use it Quite often when I am going out and there is no pint in using the pram. 

Although a nice strong design I am paranoid about the baby slipping out so I can't use it s truly hands free.

It is great for bonding and keeping bubba close to your heart. 


This has been a great sling for us so far. Our daughter is only 2 months old but we take her everywhere in this sling. We don't even have a pram. She usually falls asleep as soon as you put her in.

It took a few tries to get the hang of wearing it, but not too hard. Sometimes I put it on and it just doesn't feel right so I have to rearrange the baby for a minute to get it just right. There is a bit of an art to baby wearing in a ring sling, but it's a great way to wear a little one. Not sure if how long she'll be in it, we'll probably get another carrier for when she's bigger.

I really like the "tail" that hangs off, great for keeping the sun off, wiping her face and keeping food off her when I'm eating. It says to hand wash, but I threw it in the machine and it's fine.
