Recently we had the opportunity to review a beautifully hand embroidered Baba Sling .
When we received our sling, we
knew right away, we'd love it with all those
beautiful stitches. It was a gorgeous day
out so we decided to give the
hammock-like baby sling a test run.
I really liked the durability, and that it
was clipped over my shoulder. My sister
and I had a very nice walk to the park.
Both her and I tried it out with my
niece whom fit comfortably and safely inside.
Baba Slings is friend/family
operated company. They like keeping things
family oriented, all the photos from their web
site and promotional material are done by a
friend of the family.
Baba Slings were designed by a
mother of five children, Shanti McIvor. While
Shanti was pregnant with her second child she
did a lot of research concerning "attachment
parenting" and "baby wearing". She designed
and carried her own baby in the very first Baba
Sling. She received a lot of public interest and
decided to sell them at a local market. Thirteen years
later and Baba Slings are the top selling baby
slings in Japan and are sought after all over the
The mission of Baba Slings is to
provide families with comfortable, high quality
and beautiful baby slings that aid in the transition
from birth through toddlerhood.
All products stocked at Baba Slings
are made in no sweat/fair trade operation. Organic
materials are used wherever possible, they aim to
go completely organic in the near future.
The Baba Slings are easily adjustable making it easy for
both moms and dads to wear them. A specialty imported
high quality side release ski buckle with dividers for straps
and built in safety strap and buckle. The slings are 100%
cotton and machine washable. They come in all kinds of
fashionable colors, patterns, and plain colors. They
meet the highest in quality control.
As my sister used the Baba Sling she
really liked that it was easy and comfortable to breastfeed.
Her baby is a preemie and she fits in nice and snug. I think
if your a parent or expecting you should check out Baba Slings as they
are a really great find.
