Being a mummy of 3, as you can imagine, is hard work, especially when one is newborn and requires my attention most of the time, not only for feeding and changing but he likes been with me all the time so having a chance to play with my 2 other sons and also get stuff done in the house has been hard work.
Having looked around the market, I found that theBabaSling is ideal for someone like me. I didn't really want to go down the route of having a sling that kept baby upright all the time and that 's when I fell in love with theBabaSling.
theBabaSling originally came to the market a decade ago, branded BabaSlings Ltd, but has since re-branded as We Made Me which they are now known by. We Made Me was born out of a simple passion: to create thoughtful products, rooted in ancient traditions, with the modern family in mind.
The re-brand was neccesary after the extraordinary growth in popularity that followed after the launch of theBabaSling established them as a market leader with their product being stocked in most major retailers across the UK, and sold in over 35 countries worldwide. They wanted to keep growing and knew that more products under their belt would do this, thus the re-brand to We Made Me and the launch of new slings, the Wuti Wrap and the Pao Papoose.
I was lucky to be sent theBabaSling Classic in the special edition design, Superstar Grey. This has been designed to carry babies and toddlers from 0–24 month and is fully adjustable to fit any sized person. Handmade from 100% cotton that is both durable and breathable and is washable at upto 40 degrees, including also, a lifetime guarantee against manufacturing defects. theBabaSling is available in 12 colours and fabric patterns including organic and special editions, Polka and Superstar ranges.
The main reasons that I was drawn to theBabaSling is because they are so versatile, supporting five different carrying positions, 2 of which are discreet breastfeeding positions and they are exceptionally high in quality that I would trust to have my newborn nestled inside it whilst out and about.
What's more, theBabaSling actually lets newborns lay flat, how they would normally lay, and then can be used in different ways to help them lay and sit comfortably as they grow.
For me though, I love that theBabaSling is so easy to put on and use. Simply adjust to fit and then place over your head and shoulder in to place. It has a buckle at the back for ease whilst taking off or getting your baby out and is the only baby sling with an extra safety buckle for added peace of mind meaning that even if the main buckle is accidentally opened, the safety buckle will keep theBabaSling in place and keep your baby safe.
I am currently wearing theBabaSling is the Easy Tiger position. This is where the baby is laid across the chest and round the body, in a normal position they would be in as if you were holding them yourself, and I find that this is very comfortable for me and Joseph.
There are 5 positions that theBabaSling can be positioned in though as your baby grows. Check out the guides and videos to show how you can wear theBabaSling here. I love that theBabaSling can be used for children up to 24 months old in the Side Saddle position as it means that you can easily carry your toddler without having the worry about the strain on your back, the sling takes the weight for you and makes for a comfortable journey.
Overall, I am thoroughly impressed with theBabaSling. Not only is it durable, soft and easy to use, but the embroidered stars on the Superstar special edition are stunning and give it that extra touch of quality. I think it's great that the sling can be used for 2 years and will grow with your baby to fit and I like how it mimics how you would normally carry a baby thus making your baby feel comfortable being in the sling.
