The carrier: After borrowing some rather ghastly carriers most of which can only be described looking like they have been made from my grandmothers curtains it was rather nice to be greeted by a slick, carbon fibre looking sling. I’m now daddy cool when out walking with the baby. It’s not bulky and with the mesh style material makes it a lot more ventilated making it not such a sweaty experience when out for a brisk walk.
Fitting: Saddling up is easy and quick to do. Slip the harness over the shoulder and clip it round the waist, pull a couple of easy to reach cords and the sling tightens up nice and comfortable. The waist band when positioned correctly helps support the lower back to help carry the chubby little cherub’s weight. Once your comfortable its time to load the baby. This used to be a two man job but with this sling its easy and quick to do it yourself. Clip on one side at the chest and lift the baby; legs go easily both side and then clip on the other side for a secure fit. There are two side support clips that need to be done up to hold the baby in place and once done there isn’t much chance of the baby slipping out. With the baby in you can easily adjust it to make it a little more comfortable if your original setup was slightly out. The good thing with this sling is that you can either face the baby towards your chest if it’s a colder morning or like I have been recently “The Alan”(from the Film the hangover) with the baby facing out by flipping down the head support flap.
Once fully loaded there is actually plenty of flexibility to move about with the bambino. I walk the dog with the baby and occasionally have to bend down to pick up a ball to throw or to pick up one of his little presents and with this sling I can do all that and she doesn’t slip out on her head. Only complaint is no pockets on it.
