Babies love to be near you. It's only natural after you've been in the womb for 9 months, but it's not very practical when you're trying to get things done. Here, a high quality sling can make the difference, and we've looked at the best in the market right now.
Wraps come in all sorts of variants, but both have the same basic concept ̵
Here is our selection of baby slings currently on the market.
Best Overall: KeaBabies Diaper Bag ($ 25)
If you need an easy-to-use sling that works just fine, regardless of the specific requirements, then buy the KeaBabies sling.
It is a universal sling that simply requires an additional loop for smaller mothers and babies. It is made of sturdy and stretchy material so as not to unduly burden your back or shoulders while supporting your child. It is also suitable for newborns up to £ 35, so it can withstand a reasonable amount of time.
It is also a nursing pad if you want some more privacy while breastfeeding.
Boba Baby Wrap
If you have a particularly small or newborn baby, it is understandable that you would like to get a baby carry case specifically is aligned to their smaller size. Especially as it saves you from having to create one or two additional material loops. The Boba Baby Wrap is a good solution. Although it is good for babies weighing up to 35 lbs, it is designed to be particularly comfortable for smaller infants.
Crafted from a machine washable French terry blend, your baby can cuddle up to comfort. There is also spandex so that it retains its shape and never loosens or sags, no matter how many times you adjust it to breastfeed or take out the baby. The instructions are also very simple.
Best for easy bandage: Waist Belt for Baby Wrap Ring ($ 40)
Many baby slings are tied with ties to attach to your body. The Hip Baby Wrap Ring Sling makes things different. With a ring you can thread the fabric into a loop and then adjust it easily and quickly to keep your baby comfortable. If you are not very skilled (or just in a hurry), this is a great way to get the job done with minimal effort. Our editor-in-chief Jason Fitzpatrick swears on slings with this simple fabric and ring design – his daughter practically lived in a similar sling when she was a baby.
The Hüft-Babywickel-Ringschlinge is made of 100% cotton The fabric is breathable and ideal if you or your child have sensitive skin. It works for babies between 8 and 35 lb and is easy to adjust, so you can use it on your stomach or on your hips and stomach. All in all, it feels like a more natural solution to the sling problem, which makes sense because the sling is made from environmentally friendly and fair trade.
CuddleBug Ergo Carrier Sling ($ 38)
All slings allow you to breastfeed without moving the baby, but the CuddleBug Baby Wrap Ergo Carrier Sling makes it even easier than most others. Positioning keeps your baby in the first position for breastfeeding and feels safe and happy on the skin.
The sling is made from a blend of French terry cotton and spandex, making it comfortable yet flexible. And of course it's also machine washable because you'll need it. You can choose whether your baby should be directed towards you or away. So it's a decent system to let your child know what's going on in the world, or allow him to cuddle up to your side. What more could you want?
Best Budget Option: Innoo Tech Baby Sling (20 $)
Most full baby slings are not the cheapest things you can buy. Sure, you want the best for your child, but babies are expensive. If you have a limited budget, buy the Innoo Tech Baby Sling and get the best of both worlds.
The sling does everything you need, and holds your baby to your body when you need it, while liberating it's hands and arms. There is adequate support for your shoulders and back (though not quite as much as more expensive options) and your baby is very safe for your body. It is also made from French terry and spandex and is therefore good for sensitive skin. Be sure to watch the instructional DVD as you learn how to put the sling on!
Great for Hot Weather: Cuby Breathable Baby Sling ($ 19)
Baby slings are a great way to keep you and your baby warm that they are pretty awful in hot weather. Your baby still wants to stay close to you, what do you do then? Buy the Cuby Breathable Baby Sling and enjoy a little rest. There is less material than other baby slings, so your baby is not as strong as others, but it does not overheat and you do not!
Its soft mesh material makes it perfect for you when you are out and during the warmer summer months. It even dries quickly, so you can use it if needed by the pool. It's perfect for keeping your baby close to you without getting into heat or moisture.
