I was still pregnant when my sling came in the mail, and I have to admit that I was a little intimidated. Luckily, SnuggyBaby includes an instructional dvd on how to wear your sling. Finally, Caroline was home, and I was ready to try to wear her. The first few times, I really didn't feel confident in my positioning - it seemed like she wasn't happy and I didn't think she felt very secure. (Please excuse the dirty hair and bags under my eyes!)
After a little more practice, I finally got more comfortable with the sling, and I love it! I have even breastfed in the sling! It's so much easier to chase after Max, and get things done around the house, and Caroline stays happy because she is being snuggled nonstop. It's awesome!
This weekend I wore Caroline in the ring sling in public, for the first time. We went to an Oktoberfest and the pumpkin patch. I brought the stroller, and grabbed the sling, just in case. I actually preferred the sling because it kept Caroline from fussing - she was asleep instantly. It was easier to maneuver through the crowds, and I was still able to keep up with Max. I got lots of comments from many people. Babywearing isn't as common where I live, but I really have been preaching about the benefits for sure. I've only been babywearing for a few weeks, but SnuggyBaby has made me a believer! I'm looking forward to trying out the different types of holds as my baby grows!
SnuggyBaby also has these adorable doll slings. If you have a young child, you know that whatever Mommy is doing, they want to do too. And little girls LOVE to play Mommy with their dolls. These would make a really great Christmas gift for a little girl!
SnuggyBaby is also very popular for their stylish wet bags. Made with waterproof linings, they are the perfect way to contain those inevitable messes our sweet babies (and children and husbands) make. You can throw the bag into the laundry right along with the dirty clothes or cloth diapers. Even if you don't have small children, the easy cleanup makes them perfect for makeup bags or snack bags.
