Not as good as I expected

published

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.


pain in the neck!

I think my newborn looks comfy in it, but it has pulled all my back neck and shoulder. Would not recommend to anyone! Says it sits on your shoulder-it doesn't, its more on my neck! I did however manage to feed baby whilst walking, but the strain of it is too much.

Life saver!!!

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.

The ultimate way to stay connected

Baba Slings are a blessing to Parents and their Babies they offer such a safe practical and beautiful way to stay connected to your baby and ensure bonding while allowing parents to continue with the day


Really good, natural feeling baby sling

published

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 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.

fantastic sling

published

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.

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
