It's no secret that I am a fan of the baby sling. I have a hotsling and a maya wrap and the oldie-but-goodie "over the shoulder baby holder"- which to be honest is the most comfortable of the bunch. ....................And then I discovered loopdiloops, a shop owned by Dani- who makes custom baby slings that are durable, comfortable, affordable, and PRETTY. I immediately fell in love and now I have one of my own. Because pretty earns extra points for me.
And now it's your chance to have one too. Read on.
My fondness for the baby sling goes way beyond the cuteness factor. It really is a lot easier to wear your baby around. More things get done and your baby is kept close to you. Hotslings has a current ad running that says "a free pair of hands included with every hotslings purchase"... and they are not kidding. It's amazing how awesome it is to know that your child is with you, comforted, and then you are free to do other things.
In my case, the sling- or, well, the proverbial "extra pair of hands" has come in handy on many occasions. Blessed with a "spirited" 3 year old, we have been on many adventures where- without the sling for the baby- it could have been disastrous taking the two of them out in public. I have saved Camden from falling into a gorilla cage at the zoo, from running in front of a car at Target, from climbing the fence into the neighbors yard to pet the "big puppy" (YIKES!) all while wearing Ella securely in a sling. I have kept my house in order and done many a loads of laundry and dishes, all while soothing my baby by carrying her around with me in the sling.
There are also many other benefits to baby wearing- it's actually really good for the baby (and you!)- its great for bonding with the baby and it's the ultimate example of attachment parenting if that's what you're into. Babies cry less. Mothers cry less. So, really, we all win.
So-- in my effort to spread the love a'la 29 gifts in 29 days via 29gifts.org , I have paired up with Dani at loopdiloops to provide you with this giveaway. The winner will get a custom loopdiloops sling made with designer fabrics.
