Snuggy Baby Ring Sling Review and Giveaway


When Max was a baby, I always wanted to get a sling, but for some reason I never got around to finding one. During my pregnancy with Caroline, I knew that this time, I was definitely going to get some kind of sling or wrap, because I knew I had a toddler to chase around, and wearing the baby seemed like the easiest way to keep everyone happy. SnuggyBaby sent me the Sparrow Linen Banded Ring Sling to try out.


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 also carries Baby Wraps, if you are looking for a different type of carrier. I almost chose this type to review, but went with the sling. The Baby Wrap is also completely adjustable (like the ring sling) so that one size fits all, and is made with a more supportive fabric than other wraps.



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.

I have some exciting news! One lucky MLG reader will win a $75 gift certificate to SnuggyBaby that you can spend on anything in the store! To enter, just head over to www.snuggybaby.com , look around, come back and tell me what you would buy with your gift certificate! (mandatory entry) What's your favorite fabric? Are you going to pick a sling or a wrap? Maybe a few wet bags? I'm dying to know!

  2. I would get the Night Owls Large Wet Bag (SO CUTE) and the Purple Plum Baby Wrap (I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it on your post). Although, the Floral Fireworks Pink Baby Wrap is also calling my name.

  3. I would get a baby wrap - I adore that style and hope to have one by the time my little one arrives in January. :) I see there's a great brown and "stained glass" pattern one there that's gorgeous - it's a boy so the blue and green motif goes perfectly.

  13. I love the Night Owls print, and I would use the Gift Certificate to get a Child's Doll Sling (I've already been eyeing some for my daughter since I'm due in December & I know she'll want to wear her babies when Mommy does) and a couple of wet bags. I currently have only 1 wetbag but 3 baby carriers, so although I'd love a new wrap, I think I'd have to control myself this time :)
