Lightweight vs double layer baby slings. $5.00 coupon

Okay, consumers of Baby Slings, let's figure out which are the best baby slings and why. I want some feedback from you. With all of the attention that the recent recall received on some store-brand pouch style baby slings, I am even more convinced that my lightweight slings are a much better choice!

First of all, those slings which were recalled were bulky, padded, and no doubt two layers of fabric. They were also the pouch style baby slings which aren't adjustable, so if you don't get a good fit, your baby may not lay in the slings correctly. SO, I think lightweight ring slings are the way to go any way you look at it.

Raspberry Baby ring slings are mostly one layer of fabric, about 30 inches wide, and long enough to fit most larger people without overwhelming the smaller ones. I do offer to add a second layer of fabric for a small price for those of you who really want an ultra-sturdy sling.

Raspberry Baby was one of the first ring sling sellers on etsy and I have noticed many imitators over the last two years, not only with style, but with fabric selection. But you know what? I don't even care, cause I am convinced that my width and length of ring slings make them the most versatile. Widths that are smaller than about 27 inches leave not enough fabric to carry a baby much older than a newborn in the kangaroo carry. Widths that are larger than 31 inches really become way too much fabric which can once again cause problems with fabric bunching up around baby's face. Having a sling that is around 40 inches wide or so is simply crazy! Don't buy one like that!

Okay, so here is where I want your feedback as a consumer. Please let me know how you feel about one layer ring slings versus two layer ring slings. What are your thoughts? Let me know and you will receive $5.00 off of a purchase of one of Raspberry Baby slings. Thanks!

Ring Slings are not just for hippies and treehuggers

When you picture a baby in a ring sling, who do you picture as the Stow-er? Maybe a long-haired woman, hairy legs, bra-less, with a peace-sign tattooed on her forehead? Am I stereo-typing? I don't mean to... really. I think that there are misinformed women who have only seen very earthy woven, or even tie-dyed ring slings. For some reason, many women feel that Ring Slings are for hippies, but Pouch Slings are for the sophisticated. Well, it's just not true! There are so many fabrics which are used for ring slings. You do not have to buy an ugly fabric! Don't be afraid of ring slings, in fact, their benefits are far too great to push them aside. Here are just a few:

1) They are Adjustable even when your baby is in it! (it won't sag like a messy baby wrap, which in order to adjust has to be completely re-tied.)
2) Hands down, the best carrier to nurse in. (Again the adjustability reigns here, too).
3) Usually large and small enough for both husband and wife, making it virtually two slings in one.
4)Compact, can be folded (or wadded) up very small.
5) Can be very lightweight, (unlike having 5-6 yards of fabric tied around you like the baby wrap).
6) Comes in a variety of fabrics, wovens, cotton quilting fabrics, linens, tencels, bamboo blends, and some have even dappled with stretchy fabrics.

Need I go on? I think that there is a ring sling for everyone. Give them a try, you may find you simply love it - even if you aren't partial to hugging trees! But if you are - buy an eco-friendly one!
