Rockin’ Baby: baby slings (giveaway)
When I found out I was pregnant with my first baby, I knew I needed to have the most chic and hip baby gear. I was so excited to discover Rockin’ Baby slings and pouches. Did you know that baby-wearing reduces crying and fussiness up to 43% during the day and 51% at night according to a report in Pediatrics Journal? Carrying your newborn and toddler in a sling, pouch or any type of carrier has been something mothers around the world have been doing for centuries. Rockin’ Baby pouches and slings are for the fashion forward moms and dads who don’t mind making a statement while carrying their babies. The natural breathable fabrics offered are colorful, funky and beautiful.
The pouch is a single loop of fabric that you put over your head. They are fully adjustable and reversible. They can be adjusted to four different sizes via hidden zippers before they are put on and usually reverse from a print pattern side to a very dad-friendly, solid color. The pouch is a good choice if you would like to put it at a setting, leave it, and go. Rockin’ Baby also offers the most gorgeous organic fabrics out there. Think organic means neutral, drab or brown? Think again! I am using one of their organic pouches, pictured on the left. Click here for more details on this exquisite pouch. I have been using a Rockin’ Baby pouch for the past three years now and I love it. The pouch stays in my diaper bag when I’m not toting a kid!
The sling is one long piece of fabric that you loop through rings at one end. You can adjust the sling while you are wearing it by pulling on the tail or sides of the tail. After three years of only having experience with a pouch my husband and I were able to try out the sling, pictured right. There is a lot of fabric to work with so sizing can be adjusted greatly. Being 5’2 choosing a pouch size meant my husband who is 6’4 could not use it as well, this is not the case with the sling. There is enough fabric to fit either me or my husband. I was happily surprised to find that the rings are super easy to adjust and it creates a super snug fit. Slings are also available in organic fabric. Both the sling and pouch have convenient pockets to hold onto keys, sunglasses or whatever you need to stash away for the quick dash to the store.
