Slings

Hi Ladies,

Just wondering if any of you lovely ladies have seen a sling suitable for a rather large gentleman on your search for all things baby.

My DH is a big muscular guy who is dead set on carrying our pending arrival around in a sling.

He's got lodged in all of the ones we've tried so far! Much to my amusement.

You could try a stretchy wrap one, they come in plus size, just search on amazon.

What do you mean he's gotten lodged, are you trying only buckle ones? We got a Hana stretchy sling when our daughter was born, and it was in almost constant use by either me or DH in the first few months. It's a long piece of fabric you tie so they fit any body shape. Very easy to use.

I'd go for a stretchy wrap too. Then if he gets on with it you could go to a local sling meet once baby is here and try lots on.

My Caboo close had lots of extra stretchy material so would fit anyone.

Victoria sling lady uses 5m of stretch or comfort fabric. I had several of her slings.
