As I'm expecting my second lil boy in just a few months, I'm starting to really look into slings and carriers. The Mamaway Baby Sling exceeded my expectations in what I was looking for in a sling!
Baby slings are a very widely encouraged way to keep your baby close to you. They have so many benefits, it's hard to list them all! They help reduce crying by being more comfortable for babies than the traditional carriers and they develop a sense of security and trust by being closer to you. They also promote learning by letting the baby view all your activities and learning from you rather than staring at a ceiling or wall from a crib or stroller. Baby slings are also ideal for breastfeeding by improving their posture and frequency of breastfeeding while still staying discreet. Wearing a baby in a sling will also ease the strain on your back!
Putting the sling on can take a little bit of practice but it's pretty easy once you figure it out. You basically set the ring over one shoulder, loop around behind your back and then around over your belly to thread through the loops. There's several different ways you can position the baby, mainly depends on size, activity and preference. I absolutely love this baby sling, and I'm super excited about using it soon! I love the color and the style of it! They also have a ton of other different colors too!
