5.0 out of 5 stars Good Bonding 1 May 2008
Colour Name:Blue
Easy to Use
I bought this sling over others for a number of reasons. First, it is simple to use-- simply adjust the straps according to your torso length and you're ready to go! Second, the buckle is large and strong, plus there is a second smaller safety buckle in the event that the larger one should give way whilst wearing your baby.

Good for Breastfeeding
Third, I have found it easy to wear the babasling whilst discretely breastfeeding my son and often do so especially when out and about. It is also fab as it lulls them to sleep as you walk, reminding them of your particular rhythm of walking whilst they were in the womb. Besides the closeness and comfort it offers them, I was particularly interested in getting a sling which I could easily breastfeed in and this was a good choice.

Safety & Health
Fourth, I found this to be great for keeping baby close and safe, happily fed/pacified and more easily negotiated in the tight spaces one inevitably finds themselves in shops. I also found shopping itself easier since my hands were free--likewise all tasks were easier since I did not have to hold my baby, but still had the advantage of having him close to me.

Also, no one likes to say it, but let's face facts-- not all people are clean or remember or bother to wash their hands, meaning if they touch your baby, they transfer their germs to them. Thus, I found that because my baby was on my body in the sling strangers on the street were less inclined to grab and touch my baby without asking since baby became an extension of me. I am certain it has helped my little one avoid a lot of needless illness from germy strangers!

Versatility
Finally, its versatile--as your baby grows, they can be worn in new exciting ways.

4.0 out of 5 stars A really good buy 20 Jan 2008
Colour Name:Blue
Anyone with a baby will know that sinking feeling when you waste yet more money on a baby product that is no good .... I was really hoping this wouldn't be the case with the babasling ....... and it wasn't !!! I'm soooo pleased I bought it ....I ummed and ahhed over slings and carriers for months prior to Sophies arrival and finally was won over by the babasling's looks, price and claims of being good for babies spines.
I'm pleased with my choice - it looks really good on (unlike most other models) and my Sophie seems so comfy in it.
I was worried I'd find it complicated - I hate instructions and have no patience - however the instructions are simple to follow and i found it fairly easy to negotiate.
The reason, however i gave it 4 stars is that I do find it a tad uncomfortable on the shoulder - bit like wearing a heavy school bag (yes i remember those days lol) . However it's not that bad - I often forget shes there and at least it doesn't strain my back.
I'd recommend it - but do shop around for price .. mine was £34.And the olive is a good colour choice - cool and outdoorsy looking and goes with anything .

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this sling- wish bought it earlier! 14 July 2011
Colour Name:Purple|Verified Purchase
I just bought this sling and wish I'd bought it earlier. My baby is 18 weeks old an an enormous 18lb 7oz. I find our baby bjorn hurts my back and I cannot breastfeed in it. Although my back hurts if I walk around too much wearing this it hurts anyway holding my daughter. The sling gives me extra support and security to carry my baby. It also serves the main purpose- to be able to feed in public without too much fussing and without my curious baby coming off all the time and looking around. The top is open so she doesn't feel encased but I can pull the material up and she then falls asleep after a feed. I also want to be able to walk around the house with her in it- gives me added support and helps me do things whilst still maintaining a close bond with baby- I am surprised and delighted, plus cheaper than our other sling. I also love the lavender and my husband can stick to the black masculine sling we have for longer walks!

1.0 out of 5 stars Cannot adjust it once on 19 Feb 2011
Colour Name:Blue
I bought the Baba sling with great expectations given the great promo videos. I tried it and it is impossible to adjust the sling once you have it on as the buckle and straps are in the middle of your back and mostly beyond reach. Even if you had long arms and could reach the adjustment straps you would have a hard time tightening or loosening the sling given that the straps are made of fabric and do not slide easily in the buckle. Adjusting is a two hand operation that has to be done with the sling off. Also it is a bit confusing which strap has to be shorter and longer when off so adjusting is a long process of trial and error. The fact that the buckle is in the back makes it hard to take off. My baby cries bloody murder every time I try to put him in it. It is much more complicated to use than it appears.

4.0 out of 5 stars Contented baby...happy mummy !! 11 Jun 2009
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
We bought the babasling after our midwife advised that normal slings were uncomfortable for little boys (pressing in all the wrong places!!). Our baby was born 6 weeks premature, so this sling has been invaluable for snuggling him up to us and keeping him calm.
The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is the fact that although it adjusts for different sized people, my husband who is very tall and broad chested found it a little difficult to use at first, as the sling does not lay as low down onto his chest. However, we have worked it out now and it works well.
