A while back, I got an offer to try out a new baby sling. How could I refuse? The kind, lovely people at Mod Mum sent me this beautiful sling in the mail (I got to pick out which style I wanted, but there are many more…I was torn between the one I got and this one…and let’s be honest, this one, too.).
The past couple of weeks, Anja has been a little needier (to say the least). The sling has worked beautifully for those times when she needed a little extra lovin’. I put her in it on my left hip, pulled the padded part down under her little bum and behind her knees, and she would ride around with me happily while I scrubbed fingerprints off of doors, cooked dinner, or even worked on my computer. Though I haven’t tried it yet for this, I hear they’re also great for quick errands where you don’t want to hassle with a stroller but need your hands free. Once she passes the year mark, I have a feeling I’ll be using it for such purposes often.
If you have a baby (or know someone who does or is expecting), I would suggest you high-tail it over to Mod Mum and check out their slings. They are fashionable, reversible (two looks in one, for you fashion-conscious folks) and practical. And, little known to most people, they work for DADS, too!
