I heard about the slings long before the birth. I heard different, completely polar opinions about them: both harsh denial and fanatical delight. For myself, decided that until you try, you will not know. Therefore, I bought myself three slinges at once, or rather, I bought one, and two gave me: a scarf, a May-sling and an ergo-backpack.
Sling – a scarf
They gave it to me first. Having read the information that this is the most physiological option, I ordered my girlfriend as a gift for giving birth to a child. When I unwrapped the gift box, I was a little shocked: 3.5 meters thick, thick fabric. I admit, at first I didn’t understand what to do with it. But I helped the video in YouTube. I quickly learned to twist it around me.
With this sling, I wore my daughter almost from birth. He was very comfortable, helped me to free my hands and do my household chores. I just brought my daughter to me and could calmly cook or wash dishes, walk with her.
His mother-in-law bought him, she was advised by the seller in the children’s store as an excellent, necessary and fashionable gift. I got it when my daughter turned two months old. To be honest, I got tired of wearing a scarf around me, and I decided to use a sling more simply.
It was convenient to carry a daughter upright in it. The fabric from which it is made is very soft, plastic.
Sling is convenient to adjust the width and height of the back, spreading the baby’s legs at a comfortable distance.
I bought it myself when my daughter started to sit. Especially actively used his husband. He did not like to wind something around him, but this option was very convenient: he put the baby in, fastened and everything was ready.
The only thing there is not enough adjustment. He has only slings that pull the back of the baby on the sides. Therefore, the probability of ideally conveniently positioning a baby in it is much less than in slings.
The backpack is recommended to be used when the baby is already starting to sit on its own.
He can also become uncomfortable with the growth of the child, he also has a clearly defined volume of landing, width and height of the back. If you notice that the fabric has started to puff up, folds of fabric are formed, which means that the backpack can no longer provide your baby with proper support. It needs to be either re-adjusted or changed.
Girls, and you used a sling? Which one did you find most comfortable, from what age did you start to wear your children in it?
