"OK for short periods…"
This has been quite useful for short periods, like wandering about the house. However i'm not keen on having him on one hip all the time. It feels like he could easily escape out (and he HATED it as a newborn).
It's quite tricky to get the baby in and out to start with too.Read moreLess
"This was by far and away the best baby related…"
This was by far and away the best baby related purchase I made. One year on and I am still using it daily. I trialled several slings with a company called Boo Coo (primarily reusable nappy business) and the Lifft sling was easily the best. It is so simple- just a wide fabric hoop which you fold in half and house your infant in the (reinforced) crease,cuddled against you. It is very safe and snug, with a lying position for newbies and a sitting position for toddlers. It is washable- hurrah! No rings, ties or complications. My only slight criticism is is seems quite expensive, but then again, it is very well made and also a very attractive accessory, I am always complimented on it whilst out and about. Folds up so small will easily fit in a handbag- so great to nip to the shops without all the buggy hoo-hah. Also good in the early days for having two hands around the house. I was interested to hear from the other reviewer that it is good for petite mums- I had the opposite problem, was a hefty 16-18 at the end of pregnancy with enormous boobs, but this was the most comfortable sling for my shape too.Read moreLess

"As I am extremely petite i have had difficulty finding…"
As I am extremely petite i have had difficulty finding a sling to fit, but this sling is sized to fit and fits me perfectly. I have used it every day since my dd was born and can even breastfeed in it. I have also carried my 2 year old in it. A fabulous design which is very easy to use and it has really saved my life! I don't know how I would have coped without it in the early days as you really can look after your other children whilst carrying your newborn in it.Read moreLess
