Just as I was ready to write my blog post my laptop decided to fail on me.
We've sorted a way to get it to work, its not ideal but it's a way for me to blog and most importantly....do my grocery order!
Annoyingly though I have 4 SD cards full of photos and cannot find the shots of us out and about with the sling.
Enough is enough and I'm not going to let silly technology get in the way of this review so sorry for the lack of photos.
Now the advantages of this sling immediately stood out for me.
Bonding, easy to breastfeed in, selection of positions, as well as the key features.
Honestly, it took me a while to work out how to put the sling on and to put him in a position that was best for us. I don't think this is a problem with the sling by any means, it certainly helps your babywearing confidence to grow.

The Key Features as stated on the Babasling website are:
- Designed to carry babies and toddlers (0-2yr+ / 4.5lbs-33lbs / 2kg – 15kg)
- Has 5 different carrying positions and 2 breast-feeding positions
- One size fits all, adjusts in seconds
- Made from 100% cotton that is both durable and breathable
- Tested to safety standard BS EN 13209-2:2005 Soft Carriers
- Lifetime guarantee against manufacturing defects
The sling comes with an instruction booklet but if this is lost you can check on the website and view the different holds. You can also download the pdf instructions or watch the how to videos.
It's important for me to have a sling I can comfortably breastfeed in, as well as comfortable for the baby to sleep in.
This sling doesn't fail in both areas.
I find it easy to get him in a comfortable position for feeding as well as being discreet.Harry also seems to like it and we are yet to have a fussy feed.
The other great thing about these slings, and I think that this is almost as important as the structure, is the range of colours available.
- Chartreuse Green
- Forest Green
- Cacao Brown
- Chestnut Brown
- Saffron Orange [this is the one we have! Its very bright but beautiful]
- Natural White
- Geranium Pink
- Deep Blue
- Scarlet Red
- Midnight Black
- Dolphin Grey
- Charcoal Grey
Some people believe slings are unsafe and dangerous. This is not true. Safety advice should be followed though and slings worn properly.
Safety advice is available via the Babasling website.
My favourite piece of advice is to follow the safety ticks
Also try the different carry positions available. Not all carries are going to be suitable for everyone but once you find the one suitable for you then you'll be away!
