Like it, but too long

4 out of 5 stars

My daughter loved riding around in this sling because she could feel snuggled against me but still be looking out. Although it is adjustable, I found it to still be too long for me. I'm 5'1" with a short torso, so I had to use some of the sling portion to pull through the rings to shorten it. Ove...see moreof the reviewer's review

I put this sling on my baby shower registry b/c of all of the good reviews here and I'm so glad that I did. I have a bad back and this sling has been a lifesaver. I can hold my son and keep him comfortable for hours without too much strain on my back. He loves the sling too. If he's crying I can put...see moreof the reviewer's review

I bought this sling when my son was 3 weeks old because I couldn't carry him, he is breastfeed and wants his mommy nearby at all times, and do chores. Now he loves it and so do I. I can clean the house and cook with him in it. I have even taken him shopping in it because he's not too fond of his car...see moreof the reviewer's review

After being very disappointed with my last sling, I found this sling was fantastic. I love this sling because...1. It is extremely easy to put on the sling. I can slip on the sling, slide my baby in it and I have both hands available to get things done around the house. My last sling required me to ...see moreof the reviewer's review

As a Certified Babywearing Educator, I do not recommend this item. It is difficult to adjust and only adjusts a small amount. Please research ring slings to find better options. I can't mention other brand names in this review, but suffice it to say, don't waste your money.see moreof the reviewer's review
