What we say:
Designed to carry both babies and toddlers, this is a versatile sling that offers five different carrying positions, including two for breastfeeding. It’s easy to put on but a little fiddly to adjust. If you’re looking for a sling that will last into toddlerhood, this is well worth considering.
Tested by Amy Connolly, from Cornwall, mum to Bodhi, five months. She said:
I found this so simple to use. The instructions are great and easy to follow, and I found that the extra padding on the shoulder really helped distribute Bodhi’s weight evenly, making it particularly comfortable to wear. It sits well on my hip and provides good bum support, although I don’t think it would be practical for longer walks.
Tested by Kirsty Graydon, from Angus, mum to Charlie, six months, and Finlay, three. She said:
I really wanted to like this sling as I thought it would be quick and easy to use but, unfortunately, I found it to be bulky and tricky to put on. I also found it very difficult to adjust the strap and Charlie got fed up waiting for me to master it. Instructions-wise, the animal drawings are odd – they’d be much easier to follow if they featured people instead!
Tested by Hazel Newhouse, from Bedfordshire, mum to Ivy, 18 months. She said:
I have to say that I’m not a great fan of pouch-style slings, although I admit that this one looks very stylish. It doesn’t, however, fold small so it’s bulky to carry when not in use. It dug into my shoulder a little, so I spent lots of time fiddling with and adjusting it. I felt I waddled, rather than walked with it on – not a great look for anyone!
