Review of Pouch Baby Slings

Baby Slings are typically one shouldered carriers. These types of baby slings are great for newborns as well as toddlers. Little babies are most easily carried in a cradle (laying down) position, older children on the hip. This type of baby sling can be used on the back with older children for short periods.The downside of these carriers is that the weight distribution is somewhat uneven since they go over only one shoulder.

Pouches are the easiest type of sling to use. Pouches are our favorite baby sling for getting a baby quickly in and out. They must be sized to the individual, some people find them uncomfortable for long wearing since they go over only one shoulder. Newborns must be held in a reclining position.

Comments

  1. We have the hostlings baby pouch and I think it can be helpful but not easily adjustable for different wearers and the parents and I are all different sizes. I just wish they had three different ones since three of us share one. The fabric is great though.

  2. I like the Mammas Milk sling. Every time I put the baby in it she falls right asleep. We went to the mall and carried baby around in this sling for hours and had no pain or discomfort at all and still had two free hands.

  3. My boss has the peanut shell one. Only thing is when I lay the baby in it she doesn't like it because she likes being held up higher than the peanut shell will sit her. She cries when I put her in it. The parents love it though.

  4. I've had five full time nanny jobs over 15 years and never used a baby sling or carrier yet.
