What we say:

This wrap sling is designed to give a perfect fit whatever your shape or size, so it’s useful for partners of differing heights. It’s extra wide with double–stitch hems, so it’s more robust than the average stretchy wrap sling, and can be tied in many different ways, so you can carry your baby on your front, hip or back.

Tested by Amy Connolly, from Cornwall, mum to Bodhi, five months. She said: 

This sling’s made from lovely fabric and is quite easy to wrap around you and your baby once you’ve practised a few times. It is, though, really long so I had a lot of extra material to tie round my waist. Bodhi, however, loves it and it’s a firm favourite with him. He falls asleep in it at the drop of a hat, so it’s handy for naps on the go. 

Tested by Kirsty Graydon, from Angus, mum to Charlie, six months, and Finlay, three. She said: 

I found this sling to be pretty complicated to master, so don’t make the mistake of trying to pop it on quickly before heading out the door in a hurry! Once it was on, Charlie was happy and comfy in it. I wouldn’t choose this for the walk to playgroup twice a day because it’s fiddly to put on, but it’s probably ideal with a newborn. 

Tested by Hazel Newhouse, from Bedfordshire, mum to Ivy, 18 months. She said: 

This one wasn’t suitable for my daughter as she was too old for it, so I tried it with my friend’s 10-month-old. It’s similar to the Hana Baby sling, but wider and longer, so there’s lots more fabric to wrestle with. It’s super-soft and thin, so you don’t overheat. However, I don’t think stretchy wraps are as good for back-carrying as a woven fabric wrap.
