Babywearing can be a real game changer for a mom who needs her hands free but has a baby that wants to be held a lot. Both of my children wanted to be held as babies and sometimes even just putting them down for a few seconds would result in lots of screaming. When mom’s want to know what the must have baby items are I always tell them they need a good carrier.
Ring slings are my favorite type of carrier for quick trips or doing light housework. They are easy and fast to put on and fold up quite small so that you can grab and go when you are running out the door and just put it right in the diaper bag.
I’m excited to share the Mamaway Baby Sling with you today. Most ring slings are one size fits all because the design allows for the perfect fit by just adjusting the fabric through the rings. You can use them from newborn through toddler. The Mamaway slings have been tested up to 110lbs, so that would be quite the toddler you’d be carrying! I’ll just take that to mean they are well made and you will have no trouble carrying your child for as long as you both wish.
The fabric of the Mamaway Baby Sling is 100% cotton and is a nice sturdy, thick weave so baby really feels secure. The rings are made of nylon and are especially safe since there is no seam (something to be aware of because you don’t want the seam to come apart like some welded metal rings). I also love that this sling features a little pouch so that you can fold the entire sling right in to itself. When you aren’t using the carrier simply fold it up and easily store it in your diaper bag until you need it again. There is no need to lug any bulky car seats or strollers for quick trips.
When you are on the go you can easily allow baby to nap or feed in the carrier. If you are breastfeeding you can even use the tail as a cover if you wish, especially since the Mamaway is generously sized so you’ll have plenty of extra fabric to cover.
Mamaway Baby Slings come in a variety of colors and prints and are available on Amazon (free shipping with Prime!). My son and I are modeling the Pewter Grey. It’s a fantastic neutral color so that both my husband and myself feel great wearing either our son or our daughter in it.
I’m happy with the quality of the material, the reinforced triple stitching to make sure it is strong, and the nylon rings which allow the fabric to easily slide through. The carrier is very comfortable to wear and my son sure is happy when he gets to ride around on my hip.
