Wondering which sling is right for you? Frequently Asked Questions

I ordered a Sakura Bloom sling after falling in love with The Sling Diaries. The diarists made it look so effortless! My son (now 3 months old) and I were used to our Ergo carrier, so getting used to the feel and positioning of a sling took a few attempts. Now our sling is our go-to for early morning walks around the neighborhood. My little one loves the hip carry; he can see the world in front of and behind us, and he loves having his arms out. And, without fail, within a few minutes of walking, he is snoozing. The coloring of the linen is fantastic - a perfect maple color with just the right hint of grey. If you are looking for a sling that can be an "accessory" for any outfit, the maple is definitely it - perfectly neutral without being boring. The linen is also super sturdy. My guy is getting to be quite chubby, but he still feels secure in the sling; I'm not afraid of the fabric slipping through the rings. I am so pleased with my sling - I cannot wait to order a silk one when get gets a wee bit bigger.
