Enjoy the Bond of Baby Wearing with theBabaSling from @JoovyOO

My children are no longer infants, but my daughter who is two (34 months) is very petite for her age.  Weighing only 24 pounds, I can still pretty easily wear  her and truthfully she loves it!  She was a baby that had severe dairy allergies and until we realized what the issue was, cried and was very discontent unless she was being held.  Being that she and my son are only 18 months apart, that proved challenging as my son still needed a lot of my attention also.

A Perfect Solution!

Although I did not have theBabaSling at that time in her life (and I so wish I did) we tried several slings and successfully practiced the art of baby wearing. It can be a little tricky at first and truthfully a little intimidating as I was afraid I would somehow drop her but that never happened.  I love that Joovy puts a lot of emphasis on safety and even offers “How-To” videos on their site so you can really see the proper way to wear your baby and the five different positions theBabaSling can be used in.

Addie truly preferred to be worn in front (Koala Cuddle), as opposed to my back but anything to free up my hands was great for me.  TheBabaSling is what would be considered a Hammock Sling and is perfect to use from infancy (beginning at 7.7lbs) to create special bonding between parents and their new precious bundle.

I loved that I could breast feed while still using my sling so I could still be active while feeding my little ones.  Although Addie stopped nursing three months ago, I can see just how easy it would be to breast feed very discreetly with theBabaSling.

Koala Cuddle

This position is still good for Addie as she never gets tired of talking to Mama and she really wants me to look at her face while she is speaking to me (or kissing Mama).  I guess it really shows that they imitate what we do as I tell her to look at my eyes when I am really trying to reach her heart.  She loves this and for me, it distributes her weight more evenly.

Side Saddle

With her size right now, this is the most comfortable position for Mama 🙂  She really enjoys it also as she gets to take a fun ride with her arms and hands free.  The Hammock style sling is perfect because it offers great support underneath her.  I am totally comfortable and confident in wearing her, even at 24 pounds this way.

Here are a few other ways theBabaSling can be used:

Absolute Comfort

If I were to wear Addie long enough, she would fall asleep in theBabaSling and it would support her so well.  I even laid her inside to see how well it would hold her completely and she was very comfortable.  I love that the shoulder strap is made to be worn on either side and with extra padding so you don’t get rubbed raw while wearing your little one.

I also am completely excited to share that theBabaSling from Joovy is also made of 100% Organic Cotton!  They of course have many colors and designs you could choose, but I was so excited to receive theBabaSling Organic that comes in Natural. It takes on average a pound of pesticide to grow enough cotton to make an average t-shirt!  I would not want to be wearing my baby in a chemical filled Sling, so Thank-you Joovy for looking out for the health of our little ones!

  1. Our daughter loves to watch everything that is going on around her! I would love to get my hands on one of these Babaslings so i could put her on facing forward! She would absolutely adore being so close to me or my husband in the Little Joey hold. Plus, using the sling to feed her in would help take some of the weight off of holding her all of the time. This looks like it would be perfect for us! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Love that it can be used in so many different position/ways. Such a great product for parent and baby! Great review thank you!

  3. Slings are the one thing I have not gotten the hang of yet. But this makes it seem so easy. I am going to attempt my sling again! Thanks for the post

    1. I have tried several slings and this one is so easy and comfortable! You should give it a try, we love it!

  4. I always wanted a sling-type carrier like this when my kids were babies, but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t enjoy having one for all the other little ones I take care of now that my kids are older!

  5. Thanks for the review. I love that it has so many carrying positions as well as a padded strap for comfort.

  6. I like that I can still breast feed while wearing this. That’s what I look for in a sling.

    1. If the wrap is worn properly it actually isn’t bad. I carried a bag in college that was well over 30lbs!

  7. I love that you can wear it on your hip; my son hates front and back carry, but on my hip he could look around like he wants to.

  8. Thanks for the great review , I love wearing my babies 🙂 This looks like an awesome sling!

  9. I love the shoulder strap! I haven’t seen any other sling with a shoulder strap that wide and padded before!

  10. She is so petite! Love that you can still use a sling with her. I tried a sling with my guy when he was tiny. I couldn’t get it positioned correctly! I would love to have one of these if we have another child!

  11. I love that you show a bigges child in the sling. This is perfect for me. I know that the slings will work for my little girl but my boys are 1 and 2 and I want a sling that will work with them. Thank you for the review.

    1. Most people think of slings only being used for infants and it is so not the case. I love to be able to harness my daughter when need be 🙂

  12. I love the theBabaSling because it looks so comfy and can be used in many different ways!
    Nice review! Thank You So Much for sharing!

  13. I really want a baby sling. I’ve heard great things about this sling, and I love that it allows you to carry your baby in a number of positions.

  14. I love that this sling is secure enough to use for a toddler! My LO is two now and 25 lbs. It’s nice to know that I can get some use out of it for her still, before we have another baby! Thank you very much for putting pictures up of how it looks in use.

  15. This would work great for our toddler. She’s 24 lbs as well. I’m surprised to learn you can use the sling up to 30 lbs.

  16. I love how comfy it looks and how much support it offers. Thank you for the great review:)

  17. Oh wow, the sling looks awesome. I love your pictures, too 🙂 I wish my son could fit into one, he is a little over 30 pounds though.
