I did a lot of research online comparing carriers. I decided I wanted a ring sling after reading about safe baby wearing. I compared many ring slings and decided on this one and I love it! It's as easy to use and the you tube videos made it easy to trouble shoot an answer questions about positioning my newborn and how to position him as he is able to hold his head up. I love the fabric, lightweight just like they advertise , which means it's great for a North Carolina summer! It washes great, had to wash it already- I'm messy. I also like that my husband can wear it and it fits both of us. A carrier I bought inexpensive before he was born fit me but not my husband. It also says 8lbs but it didn't really fit my baby as a newborn (who weighted over 9lbs at birth and weighted 10lbs when I tired to use the other carrier). With my ring sling I can see his face well and he instantly is calm and if he won't nap (he is mostly a great napper!), he naps in the sling. I am excited to use it as he gets older too. Everyone compliments the sling, and asks where I got it.

This product is just as described. The maple color is really pretty. The linen is high quality and is fairly cool to wear in the summer months. It was stiff at first, as expected, but ironing it once made it much easier to use. It feels very supportive with my 20 pound baby in it. It's easy to pop her in when we're out running errands and she is a happy camper in there! Love this ring sling!!

I have been using this with my newborn for several weeks including a zoo trip. It is very good quality and looks good. I have been very pleased with how the linen feels secure holding the baby and stays in place. I love how well it keeps cool in the heat. I am a petite 5' 1'' and found this length of material to be fine. There is enough extra to shade the baby or cover up for nursing.

I actually bought one for my sister, when it arrived in the mail I instantly had to order one for myself! The maple color has a subtle grey tone which I love. It matches anything and everything! They last quite a while and are amazingly cool for hot climates. I just looooove my Sakura bloom slings! Worth every penny! I own 3 now and can't wait to purchase a silk one! They're so gorgeous :)

Both baby and I love it - super easy to use, comfortable and best of all light weight for the summer months (I'm in NYC). Allows me to run errands without the bulk of the stroller or wear her around the house when I need to get stuff done and she isn't tired (though she easily falls asleep once inside). Definitely recommending to my mom friends.

This is our first time using a sling and I was a little nervous at first. With a little practice, my baby and I got it down and we are LOVING IT! It immediately calms my baby. I haven't used out bulky stroller in weeks! I don't know how we lived without this. Best purchase yet!

Received this very quickly! Beautiful quality item. I've never used a ring sling before and there is a little learning curve. I've had it two weeks and have had my baby in it at least every day or two. He's used to a soft structured carrier and a stretchy wrap so the concept of being worn is not new to him. My biggest struggle is in getting a good seat. I've been able to get a good enough seat every single time, but I'm still fine tuning my techniques to get a better one. There's no doubt this is cooler temp-wise than any other carrier I have. I'm glad I bought this and think I'll soon be confident enough to wear it out of the neighborhood. I will say that if I ever have another baby this will be their first carrier for sure and I will be an old pro by then.

My husband's exact words to describe our Sakura Bloom sling was "Honey, it is Heaven sent." Our daughter loves snuggling next to me during our walks. We nurse, bounce, sway, walk, and clean in our sling. As her sleep schedule has been changing and teething pains have increased, wearing her causes her to fall asleep in seconds. It brings tears to my eyes to see her so content and happy being so close to her mommy and daddy, we kiss her over and over again. This sling has blessed our family beyond words and I have gained so much confidence as a mother through this community of baby-weares. I love supporting such an amazing company and I absolutely can't wait to order more. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
