Not as good as I expected
I find the Baba Sling quite difficult to position bub in comfortably. Perhaps it’s the amount of fabric. I feel like she gets swamped in it when laying down. I don’t find it is supportive when she’s inward facing and sitting up (I need to use a hand to support her which, in my opinion, defeats the purpose of using it). However, perhaps it works better for other people.
I can't rate my baba sling highly enough! It just simply saved my sanity. I used it for all three of my babies and they all loved it as much as I did, which meant I could do washing, cook and do all of the other million jobs I had to do as a mum with two hands and while still holding a very happy and content baby! Even now when I hold a newborn baby I reach for my baba sling, which I have kept, because to me it just feels like the easiest, most natural and connected way to hold them.
This was heaven sent!
Bought a Baba sling with my first born. I wanted to stay connected but still have freedom of my arms and not be hindered in my daily tasks. I had tried other carriers but found they rubbed my son, were not comfortable and hard to put on or take off in a hurry. I used my Baba sling from when he was a month old baby right through til he was two and I was pregnant with my second. 8mths pregnant I was still able to carry my son in the sling (although he had moved to my back).
This sling has now been used on 5 babies/toddlers. Was one the best investments I made for my children. Would highly recommend to anyone with babies wanting to connect with them on that one on one level.
Really good, natural feeling baby sling
My sister got this sling for my nephew and the whole family used it to carry him around as they went about they're daily business. He really liked it too and would calm down quickly and fall asleep easily in it. It's easy to change positions and it feels really natural once you get the hang of it. You don't feel restricted and it feels secure if you wear it right. It's a perfect sling for breastfeeding, makes it easy and private, my sister loved it. It has its limitations, you probably wouldn't take it for a long hike as your shoulder does get sore after a bit. But swapping shoulders is a good solution.
Best Sling! I have carried 4 of my 5 children in it for many years!
I have used the Baba Sling in countless situations with the youngest 4 of my 5 children... I have stood in line at the post office breastfeeding my newborn, with complete discretion. I have used it for overseas trips, in and out of planes and airports, keeping baby happy and safe whilst checking in and hands free to chase after toddlers... I have used it with toddlers on my hip while hanging out the clothes... it was easy to adjust while still carrying baby in the sling. Not too hot in summer being 100% cotton... by adjusting the sling to the t...ightest comfortable adjustment i found it very comfortable on my back, and the fact that you can change babies positioning so easily in the sling meant that i didn't feel the weight on any 1 part of my body for too long. Baby can be worn in the sitting up "Optimal" position and then you can lie them down to breast feed... I don't know how I would have managed without my Baba Sling raising 5 children and running my business and keeping our home in order... I Love my Baba Sling!!! xox
I LOVE LOVE LOVE my sling. I got this because bub was very unsettled. The baba Sling allowed me to carry my bub in a natural position, without putting pressure on her spine. Great for whne she was upset, but I still had to get things done and play with a 2 year. Bub is now almost 1, and I love carrying her on my back. It is great for quick trips, at the airport, wonderful for the beach and a MUST HAVE.
Great for newborns as it keeps them close, and in a natural position. Great colours and fabrics. Easy to clean - just throw it in the washing machine. As your bub grows that can use more positions
I had many different baby carriers and wraps, and this one was not my fave at all. It was too chunky and bub hated lying down in it especially a reflux baby.
Also the design put too much pressure on my shoulder and neck, I ended up been sore.
I wouldn't recommend this sling to mothers I know, I ended up selling this one for the hug-a-bub. Definitely look at other options out there.
Not sure if there was any! Besides the fact that it was easy to put on!
Baby was uncomfortable, hated lying down in it.
I will use this again with another baby, however I find that it causes too much pain and discomfort to use for longer periods of time with babies that are over 6 or 7 kg's.
It's quite versatile, it's easy to put on and has easily adjustable straps. THey are have a great range of colours. I like that it is 100% cotton, not too bad a price compared to other slings.
It can be a little tricky getting baby in and out of the sling, I last used the sling when our little one was around 11 months old and found that the strap, although it is padded reall...
We would use this again for newborns, but once bub gets older it is easier to switch to something like the Baby Bjourn.
Good for newborns. Our baby was a difficult one to get to sleep and stay asleep. She absolutely loved this sling though! Daddy found it easy to wear and whenever we went out shopping or out for a walk or to the markets etc we would put her in the sling and she would drift off to sleep for the whole trip. She was very comfortable and at ease in this sling.
I am quite short (about 155cm tall) and I found this to be a little unco...
One of our best baby buys! Our daughter is quite unsettled during the day, but when she's snuggled up close to us in the sling she sleeps soundly! For us, the Baba Sling is priceless.
This sling is everything we were hoping for and more. Our daughter settles almost instantly when we place her in the sling. She sleeps while we get jobs done!
Here's what we like about the sling:
* It really is hands free
* Our daughter is safe and snug
* Quick and easy to use, saves getting the pram out if the car at the shops
* One size fits all - so both m...
A friend recommended the baba sling to me for use when traveling. Prior to the baba sling I had used the Baby Bjorn which I found easy to use and very comfortable. Found the baba sling awkward to use at first as it didn't feel as secure as the Baby Bjorn but was able to "break it in" after a day. Both my babies enjoyed being in it and I love that you can breastfeed on the go without anyone knowing! Very useful for when there isn't anywhere convenient to nurse. Your shoulder can get sore from extended use but you can just swap the sling over to ...the other shoulder. Much easier to use the baba sling than to have to get out the pram (particularly for quick trips to the shop, on public transport, in crowds, when travelling) keeps baby close to you It does take some getting used to but once you get the hang of it, you'll love it!
I have used this for all of my three children. The best thing about it is that it takes seconds to put on, so perfect for all those quick trips where you dont want to pull out the pram eg the school pick ups for the older kids. I used it from newborn until the kids were about 2. I remember going on a bush walk when my daughter was 1 and I happily carried her for hours in it. Highly recommend it!
very quick and easy to put on, comfortable, heaps of different positions to try, looks great, baby very happy to sit in it for hours, perfect for those unsettled periods
hard to adjust the strap and took a few tries to get it perfect
makes carrying baby very easy.
Baba Sling is made of 100% cotton, even when new out of the packet it didn't have the "new cotton" feel which I was thinking it will have. The pleated deeper pouch baby fitted in easily and snuggled off to sleep quickly and easily.
It came with the guide for necessary adjustments.With proper adjustments sling was much more comfortable for me to use. Both baby and I were happy with the sling and everyone who saw him in it commented how comfortable he looked.
Baba Sling is adjustable means one sling can fit different bubs ( one at...
It was the best ever baby buy, great specially for that time when they only want to be with mum, I would do all my house chores while baby was in the sling, at the airport I would go straight thru when others were strugling with prams, I used with 3 kids, did a lot of walking and was able to put baby behind my back without taking baby out of the sling when needed, absolutely a life saver! It is just a matter of learning and when baby is bigger put her to seat on your hips. I still use with my heavy 2 years old with no back pain. I even use it as a blankie, just perfect
Easy to fit, to change position, to breastfeed, to put baby down when asleep without waking up, machine washable
Bub No.2 wanted to be in it all the time. I prefered baby bjorn, but he loves this. It feels safer than other brands because of padded sides (tuck under bub) & double buckles. I read another reviewer say you could go through air port security with bub in it - NO you cant (it has 2 buckles)! You still have to take bub out and send baba sling through xray but, I do find it easier than a pram to the gate.
Bubs loved the sling, pocket great for keys, can be used lots of different ways. Much faster to get on in the rain or for quick car stops than Baby Bjorn.
Takes a while to work out what works for you and bub but fab once you do.
tese are the best thing since sliced...the most comfortable thing to carry in and also fed in got all the household work donre while they were still asleep wouldn't had three youn and close ones otherwise they all loved it the only thing is they' ve outgrow it too early and could only stay in it until they stopped feeding also has a very good lining which kept them cool in summer and warm in winter they should make them with sheep skin type lining so warmer
has a really good fabric colur range
could only accomadate tehm until three
A very nicely made sling, its a nice cotton fabric that doesnt get too hot or too cold. My 6 week old loves it, she can be difficult to settle and loves to be close to mummy. This sling allows me to have her close to me but also still have free hands to do other things, instead of being tied down to holding her all day (some days)! I like the idea that it can be used up to 2 years of age and it comes with clear instructions. Another bonus is if your "instruction" challenged as I am, the website offers video instruction which I found very useful and much easier to understand. Overall an excellent product!
Versatile sling at a better price compared to other baby carriers
Hard to work out how to use at first
A friend recommended this sling and it is fabulous. I purchased another brand first, but it was not adjustable and was difficult to get my baby in and out. It was great to be able to keep my baby close, as she was very clingy. It was difficult to get her to sleep, but she would nearly always sleep in the sling. As soon as I got the Baba Sling I suddenly had more freedom because I could do things while my baby was calm or asleep in the sling. At first I was nervous positioning my baby in the sling, but soon became confident and worked out w...hich position she liked the best. It is comfortable and adjustable. Keeps baby close to you. Machine washable. The baby can be placed in it in many different positions (my baby slept well in the hammock position) and it made my baby and me much happier. Informative website. It didn't give me a sore back, but it was tiring wearing it when I occasionally had a sore back from another reason. I was a bit nervous at first about how to position the baby, but didn't take long to get used to it.
