This giveaway is closed ~ Congratulations to Erin & her Sebastian!
I was sent a pouch from Rockin’ Baby Sling for review purposes. All opinions here are totally my own.
I came upon Rockin’ Baby Sling when another blogger posted about them and I knew that I had to have one of these baby carriers. These pouches and slings stand apart due to their beautiful fabrics and after their relaunch, the company also has a mission: For every sling/pouch purchased, a sling will be donated to a mother in Haiti.
Pros: The print on my pouch is gorgeous and vibrant, and all of their styles are equally so. I love that this carrier will fold up and take up very little space in my diaper bag – It would even fit in a non-diaper bag if I folded it up tight enough. Rockin’ Baby Slings are made with 5 yards of fabric and pouches are made with 3 yards and adjustable with a zipper system. Slings and pouches are reversible.
My Rockin’ Baby Pouch is very easy to use – Getting Baby in and out is easier than from a soft structured carrier or a Mei Tai, the other carriers I have tried. My favorite (so far) is the hip carry, which lets Sebastian look all around. I love how natural and primal it feels to use a carrier like this! Although there are carries appropriate for younger babies, I really love this for my older infant.
Cons: I really can’t cite any cons for this product except for a learning curve I would have experienced with any pouch or sling, nothing specific to this product. (More on how to wear a baby pouch or sling, as well as sling/pouch babywearing safety guidelines.) I really want to master front and back carries!
