BAG SLINGS ARE DANGEROUS!

By 

from Cullman, AL

Comments about Balboa Baby Adjustable Sling Baby Sling/Wrap:

Bag slings are incredibly dangerous for your baby. NEVER EVER STOP CHECKING ON THEM! BAG slings are where most babywearing deaths occur and are always due to the sling and how incorrectly they are used ( there is really no correct way to adjust one of these monstrosities THROW IT AWAY)

Please see www.thebabywearer.com and www.whos-green.info so you can get information on safe comfortable slings and carriers for your baby!

These slings are highly dangerous and should be avoided at all costs so if you see a retailer inform them of how dangerous it is , if you see a consigner, a kids boutique.. please tell them and let them be aware. Let prevent useless infant deaths from occuring at the hands of major companies pandering shotty items to parents who just don't know any better.

Again please boycott Infantino and brands that carry these horrible bag slings

Protect your babies and you can save someone elses by speaking out!

The Balboa Baby sling is comfortable for both Mommy and Baby!

By 

from Staten Island, NY

Comments about Balboa Baby Adjustable Sling Baby Sling/Wrap:

I got this sling as a gift soon after my daughter was born. The friend who got it for me said she had done a lot of research and this one seemed to be the best. Plus, it's recommended by Dr. Sears! So here's why I loved this sling:

-It fit my daughter great whether she was 1 month old or 1 year old. When I first starting using it, my daughter was so tiny. I had to use a rolled up baby blanket to support her in the sling...which the manual warns you you might have to do. When she got older, she didn't need one anymore, and could rest comfortably, laying down in the sling. It's very easy to breastfeed in this sling. When she was able to sit down by herself, I could sit her on my hip and have the sling around her body.

-It's very ergonomical. It made carrying my daughter easier on my arms and back. In fact, in the beginning I used to carry my daughter in the sling during outings and on walks. One day I forgot my sling and thought, "No big deal. I'll just carry her in my arms. She's not that heavy." Well...after a while of carrying her in my arms, they began to hurt and I realized what a big lifesaver the sling was for my back and arms!

-It was comfortable for my daughter. It has a padded rim so it doesn't "dig in" to my daughter or get tight around the edge.

-They come in so many pretty colors and designs! I have the Geisha Trim design; It's black with a black-and-white flower design trim.

-Last but not least, it's very small when folded up, so you can easily pack it in your diaper bag!

My baby and I love the balboa sling!

By 

from Jacksonville, FL

Comments about Balboa Baby Adjustable Sling Baby Sling/Wrap:

I just got this when my daughter was 6 months because I couldn't stand my front carrier.  My baby was not happy in it at all. So here are all the reasons we love the balboa.

1. It is so cute.  I got the brown one with pink striped accents.  

2. There are two handy pockets, one on each side. This makes it very convenient.

3. Its comfortable for my baby. My baby just smiled so big at me the first time I put her in it at the store.  Strangers have even made comments that she looks so happy. I think she loves it so much because her weight is distributed evenly and it give her a womb-like feeling of swaddled closeness.   

4. It doesn't hurt my back.  It has a very nicely padded shoulder strap and it adjusts very easily.

5. It is versatile.  You can wear your baby in like 5 positions.  My baby loves them all!   

6. The price is almost half of what I paid for my front pack carrier. 

I just wish I had bought this when my baby was a newborn. It would have been so convenient for breastfeeding so frequently at that point.
