Handy for when you need to be hands free...
on 19 June 2014
This is my 3rd sling. I also have a stretchy wrap and a soft structured carrier. I bought this because I wanted something quick to put on to carry my little one to and from the car when I was carrying bags. It does the job well enough. I can just pop it over my shoulder, slip the little girl in and off I go. It does require me to still hold her as she doesn't feel massively secure, but more secure than trying to balance her on my hip along with juggling a changing bag, swimming bag, hand bag & bag of parcels for the post office. However, I wouldn't say it is the most comfortable way of carrying her. I wouldn't use it for anything more than to the car.
As it states, it is designed to be used in the water. I haven't used it for this purpose yet, but it is supposed to be a bit more grippy when wet. As I've been using it dry, the fabric does slip through the rings so I have tied it in a knot to stop this happening. It's not the most attractive of slings, but as I'm not using it for regular extended use, I'm not that bothered. I wouldn't recommend it for your main sling, but handy to have and a good price compared to most ring slings.
