Balboa Baby Adjustable Sling Review

our sling in box

I recently got the privilege to receive a Balboa Baby Adjustable Sling in the signature khaki color for my husband to review for Father's Day.  While I have some pictures of the sling, please respect the fact that though he did use the sling, he did not want his picture taken of him in the sling!

out of the package and ready to get tried on

Now onto the review!  I opened the package when it came because I was excited to see and feel what the sling was like.  It is so soft and smooth.  And as you will see from the pictures Fionna definitely approves of it.  Yes, Fionna is a daddy's girl and she is the one that Daddy ends up carrying while Zyera and I travel together.  I have a WAHM made sling that is black and pink that we use.

Fionna couldn't wait to try it out. . . note the super cute diaper!

Anyway I'm getting sidetracked!  This sling is super easy to use and adjustable.  Meaning I can use it and my husband can use it with hardly any effort to change it back and forth.  It fits newborn to up to 25 lbs as well.  You can use it up front for a cradle, front for a cuddle, or side for a hip carrier style.  I will have to say that I thought we'd mainly use the hip style.  But when Fionna was falling asleep on the hip style it was so easy to move her around to the front and let her cuddle and sleep!  And very precious looking to see her curled up there on daddy.

Balboa Baby has been kind enough to let me do a giveaway so that one of you can win an adjustable sling for that special dad in your life(or yourself-we won't tell)!  Make sure to head on over and enter my giveaway which will be going live soon!  It is called the Celebrating Dad Giveaway!

  9. I would like to try a sling. They look comfortable and the learning curve seems not so hard.

  10. Slings were always so helpful to me when I had little ones around!

  11. I love these types of slings for newborns!

  12. I have been looking for something different to try with our baby girl. Both my sling and Moby are too "girly" for my husband to wear. This one would be perfect because we could both use it! ;)
