"perfect for newborn and toddler…"
I first used my Rockin' baby sling with my toddler when I was pregnant, easier than lugging the buggy to the shops for quick trips and good when she wanted a hug but I needed to get things done! I've now got a newborn and he spend a lot of time in it too, I love how versatile it is! I also love the pattern (mine is Peacock Jonny) as it's eyecatching and also husband-friendly (not that he's fussy!)<br>It took a little while to get the hang of using it but once we cracked it it's become a daily help!Read moreLess
"Easy to use, secure, baby loves it…"
This has been my first experience of a baby carrier and I couldn't be happier. It was easy to use and my baby loves it. We live on a farm so sometimes prams just won't do but I've used it in the school run and at car boots etc.<br>To be honest, when my baby is clingy, I've even cooked meals with him in there.<br><br>I have found, once you have it in the right position, you can keep it like that rather than have to keep un- doing it and this makes life easier too.<br><br>The fact that in buying this sling helps mothers in poverty also appeals to me.<br><br>I highly recommend it.Read moreLess
"User Friendly & Adorable…"
I have a Ring Sling from Rockin' Baby and have found it to be a great all-around carrier. It's easy to use which makes it great for beginner baby wearers. The length of the tail offers the option of covering baby too. While I don't feel that ring slings are perfect for every need, they are great for newborns (even all day wearing) and for shorter wears as baby gets bigger. They are compact and fit into a bag easily. I love my ring sling and wouldn't give it up!Read moreLess
"Easy to use, funky design…"
I am really pleased with my rockin’ baby pouch. Previously I have owned a stretchy wrap, which I bought because it’s the cheapest sling you can get, and I got given a second hand baby Bjorn carrier. I did not get on with the stretchy one. I don’t know about you, but when I’m sleep deprived and there’s a crying baby and I need to pop to the corner shop this is not my ideal time for trying to attach a baby safely onto me using stretchy fabric. I’m sure if I persevered I would get better but over a really short distance it was easier to carry the baby and over a longer distance it was easier to put him in the pram. The baby Bjorn one was better but still a bit awkward to get him into. <br><br>There are loads of nice designs, I chose a neutral black and white design so that my husband can use it too. The packaging is really nice and the material feels really good quality. When you buy a sling they donate a sling to a mother in Kenya or Haiti. This is great, although the cynic in me wonders if these mothers feel patronised by a western company steeling the idea of carrying a baby in fabric, commercialising it and then giving them one back.<br><br>The best thing about the sling is that it looks nice and it is quite easy to get a baby into. There are four different ways to carry a baby, but I only really use of them, the one where it’s sort of like carrying a baby on your hip but with more support. The only really negative thing I can say about the sling is that there aren’t loads of circumstances in which I use it. Babies are heavy and if I’m walking far I’d rather take the pram because I can then shove all the extra stuff you have to cart around on the pram too. Having said that the sling is great for short trips, and times when he’s being winey but I still need both hands free. <br><br>So in conclusion it can be a good investment if you have the money and will use it enough. If you don’t have the money you could always use my husbands preferred method of zipping up his coat around the baby and putting his hands in his pockets. Except don’t because that probably isn’t safe…and it doesn’t leave you hands free so all in all it’s an awful method.Read moreLess
