Rockin Baby Sling

buy...think about doing it this week so you can help them donate to our neighbors in Haiti. Every small bit helps, Thank you!

What It Is:
Different styles of baby/toddler ring slings and pouches. They have great funky and modern fabrics that are sure to fit any parents style!

About the creators:
Lisa McDaniel and Natasha Stanton, created the Rockin' Baby Sling back in 2002 when we had our first kids, so parents can do their thing without having to compromise their sense of style. Back when we started our company there weren’t any carriers that were as fashionable as what we wanted to be wearing. We made a few slings for ourselves out of vintage fabrics and funky trims and were constantly stopped by other moms on the streets, in stores, at the post office, at schools, asking where they could get one. Rockin’ Baby was born shortly after that. Since then we’ve added the Rockin’ Baby reversible and adjustable pouch to our line.

My initial reaction:
I fell madly in love with the sling as soon as I took it out of the box. The print was gorgeous and the feel of the sling was super soft and luxurious. I was headed out the door and wanted to use it while out and about, and it only took me a short amount of time to read the included pamphlet about how to use/wear it!

My Thoughts After First Use:
I had a little trouble getting the Velcro cover back on after adjusting the zipper. I'm only mentioning this because I constantly feel like i'm in a hurry and this slowed me down a bit. I'm sure it will get easier as time goes on. Little L slipped right in and seemed very comfortable during his trips around the store and apartment. His sneakers were a little hard to wiggle in their, as they would stick to the inside of the fabric as I brought his bum down into the pouch. There is a padded part of the sling that fits snuggly under Little L's knees which not only adds great comfort but also gives me a quick reference as to which way to put the sling on! Another thing that we will master with practice! I loved the ease of just slipping it over my shoulder and being ready to go, where as with our current sling I feel like I am constantly readjusting. I will definitely stick solely to a pouch for our next baby!

Little L's thoughts:
He loves it! Little L loves being close to mommy and seeing all of the world at an adults level instead of people knees or a ceiling!

Big D's thoughts:
He was also very impressed with the way the sling was made and he loved the print too! He said, "it seems really sturdy, maybe it will be safe for me to try this one." His words but my thoughts, it would be great to have Big D carry the little guy around in a sling for awhile, and too cute too!

My personal rate on a scale of 1-10:
A definite 10 for this one! I know I'm truly in love with it when I want to buy one in every print they have available!
