All I heard about while pregnant with my first was how great it was to have a baby carrier. I registered for a cheap one and it worked for a while when my little one was tiny, but I started really pining for a nice fabric carrier. One of my friends made me a beautiful mei tai carrier that I really loved. But it was so hard to learn to use and my little guy was only getting bigger!
As soon as I fell pregnant with my second, I knew I needed to get another carrier. I loved my mei tai, but I knew it wouldn’t be good for a brand new baby. Because it was homemade, it didn’t have any newborn extras that most carriers come with now. So I started searching for a new type of carrier for my baby. I needed a carrier that was fast and easy to use. Enter Seven Slings!
Seven Slings is a fitted baby sling that comes in- get this- seven different prints! It supports babies weighing 8-35lbs and comes in 9 sizes. I was able to catch on relatively quickly, because I had used a carrier before. It only took me two tries! My favorite part is that I don’t have to keep tightening the carrier like with a ring sling, mei tai or wrap.
This sling is super sturdy and my little boy loves it. It feels strange at first because it is so tight, but it’s supposed to be that way! These come in a variety of patterns and are quite affordable. They also come in man-friendly colors which is something that can be hard to come by in an affordable carrier. I will tell you they run a little bit small, so if you are close to two different sizes you should go with the bigger one.
Babies that are carried cry less and observe more, so they end up being such smart little cookies.
