I used the New Native Baby Pouch with two of my three children and really enjoyed it during the first few months. You can carry your little one all around the house and rock them to sleep. It is perfect for shopping trips to the store, where you don't want to drag the stroller or car seat out, you just lay baby in the sling and he/she will most likely fall asleep cradled against you. After about three months or so, quite frankly, your baby gets too heavy and the sling pulls on your shoulder. You are suppose to be able to use it as your child gets older, but by that point its easier to fit them in the shopping cart.

Safety
As long as you can see your baby's face and their airway isn't blocked, then the sling is safe. Use common sense and don't put extra blankets around his face, because that might suffocate him. They use slings all over the world to carry little babies, generations after generations, so its safe if you use it the right way.

Baby's Comfort
Every single time I used the New Native sling, my baby would fall asleep. He's cuddled up to his mom and feels warm and safe. The positioning is a little tricky to learn at first, but after a few practices he's completely safe and cozy.

Parents' Comfort
The sling is pretty comfortable, for about an hour or so, and then you need a break for your shoulder. It does dig in, like carrying a heavy bag, on your shoulder. I like that you can sit with the baby in the sling as well, or just take it off and lay him down to sleep.

Ease of Use
I did have to practice using the sling a few times before I felt comfortable using it in public. It was always awkward to first get the baby in and to get the baby out. But once the baby is nestled in the right way, everything is easy. I would recommend practicing at home to ensure your baby's in the right way.

Design
Its the basic baby sling, but I like that its completely one piece of fabric. There are no loops or rings that you have to tie around to secure the sling. You just slip one piece over your neck, position it and slide the baby in. I always felt the sling was supportive and safe enough to hold my children in. Its suppose to also be great as a nursing shield, but I used something else for that.

Durability
These are made out of durable, cotton material. Its machine washable, and has lasted for two of my children. The only wear and tear is from the color slightly fading, but the stitching is very secure.

While I can't say there is anything specifically wrong with the New Native Carrier Sling, it just wasn't the right one for me.  I think perhaps it was too big.  I didn't feel my newborn was safe when inside and found it uncomfortable when they were older and trying to use it as a hip sling.  I suggest you shop around and ask your friends to try out the slings they have to find the one that is right for you.

Bottom line, buy a sling.  I couldn't have survived without one.

Easy to use sling, great to have in diaper bag.

By 

from Helena, MT

Comments about New Native Baby Pouch:

This sling is awesome.  Unlike many of the ring slings and whatnot, you don't have to worry about ajusting or wrapping it over and over.  It just loops over your shoulder, and baby fits right into the pouch.  It's soft, easy to wash, and folds up super small to fit into the diaper bag.  I used mine from the day my son came home from the hospital, it was a great help in making sure I could use both hands for my older child.

I could not live without this

By 

from Powells Point, NC

Comments about New Native Baby Pouch:

I absolutely love this sling. It is very light weight. I usually just throw it in the diaper bag and go. It is easy to breastfeed  your baby in. I also love that you can use it from birth until 3 years of age. I use it when we go shopping. I love having my daughter close but being hands free. It's a lot more sanitary that putting your child in a shopping cart. My daughter is 7 months now but she has always loved it and still does. She loves being able to see everything going on. I highly recommend this product.

So glad I had the New Native Baby Pouch

By 

from Evanston, IL

Comments about New Native Baby Pouch:

The New Native Baby Pouch really was a lifesaver after I had my second son. I don't know what I would have done without it. He would sleep so well in there while I was off chasing his brother, or taking him to school, or cooking dinner/lunch.

I used a Baby Bjorn for my first born, and while I liked it, I felt like I couldn't wear it for an extended period of time-my back would be killing me after a half hour or so. I knew when my second son was born that I would need something a bit more comfortable as I would be wearing it for longer. This Baby Pouch did the trick. It was tricky to get used to at first, but once you figure out how to get your child in there (the directions are VERY helpful), you will realize how comfortable it is for both you and your child. He would be so chill in there-just sleep or look around while I would be wearing it. It is easy to take off, as well, without disturbing. So, he would often be sleeping in there, and if I wanted to lay him in his crib, I could just lift it over my head and gently place him down. He pretty much never woke up from that transistion.

The only con would be if it is too big, it is hard to carry them in there comfortably when your child gets a little older. I did have this problem, and ended up pinning it up a bit so he could sit up when he had more head control.

I have loaned this carrier out to 3 mom friends, and they have all loved it, too. It washes SO well-even gets softer and more comfortable from washing. After loaning it out and using it for a year or so myself it is still in perfect condition.

I would highly recommend this pouch to any new parent! Makes a great gift, too!

AWESOME!

Comments about New Native Baby Pouch:

I LOVE the New Native. I don't think the other pouch carriers even compare. It is very sturdy, very light and can fold up very small to put in the diaper bag, purse. My babies were both very comfy in it and they seemed very safe. It IS important to make sure the babies head is up and not really slouched into his chest, when in the infant position...just like the other sling/pouch carriers.

I always go back to this carrier for convenience...so very portable and takes seconds to put on and get baby into and be on your way. great for in-and-out stops. I use it for Breastfeeding, too. I also like that I can carry my 30 pound toddler on my hip without having to hold her weight with my arms

I will say, my shoulder gets sore when carrying a bigger baby for too long, though.

New Native Baby Carrier Keeps Baby Close And Your Hands Free

By 

from Columbiana, OH

Comments about New Native Baby Pouch:

I have been using the New Native Baby Carrier for five of my babies now and I love it! Just because your baby has been born doesn't mean that they don't want to be close to your. Newborns thrive on close contact and infants love being near you all the time! It provides them with the comfort, security, and love they need to grow happy and healthy. But arms get tired, especially with a big baby, and we often need our hands to do other work and the New Native Baby Carrier is a fantastic tool to provide relief to the arms and to free up the hands. 

I have found that a little newborn can often "get lost" in the pouch, but that is easily solved with a small pillow or a roll of blankets. There are special products you can buy to assist with this problem, but they are small for so little time that it's better just to improvise. 

There are many different comfortable positions to wear the carrier, but I prefer the traditional one for very small babies and to ride infants and toddlers on my hip with the carrier adding that extra support to take the pressure off of my arm.

Absolutely wonderful

By 

from Ballwin, MO

Comments about New Native Baby Pouch:

I purchased a new native baby carrier when my first child was born (she is now 6). It can be used for a very long time, from infancy to toddler-hood. My daughter absolutely loved it as a baby. It was a lifesaver in order to be able to do stuff around the house and have my hands free. I have kept it and used it for my newborn son. He also loves it. I cannot swaddle him because he is so strong and kicks out of the swaddle, but he loves the sling and stops crying almost instantly when I put him in it. I think he can probably hear my heartbeat, and I'm sure it reminds him of the womb. Because of the height it hits me, I think I could probably discreetly breastfeed using it too, but I haven't tried that. It's also nice to be able to wear the toddlers on your hip with it when they are a little bit older. It gets really tiring having to hold babies and toddlers with your arms when they won't let you put them down, this is a total lifesaver. I will say that after a car accident and almost 9 months of bedrest, I have a weak back and this is not super easy on my bad back, but I love it so much that I make due!!

great for small amounts of time.

By 

from Woodway, TX

Comments about New Native Baby Pouch:

Love this sling! the **New Native Carrier Sling is great for when baby needs to be held for small amounts of time. It is easy to put on and to get baby into. I have used it several times and always get a lot of attention from other shoppers. I think everyone should wear their baby. Baby is much happier and has less colic. Also it alows for hands free shopping or cooking and cleaning! I love it!  I have used it for long periods when baby was sleeping and felt uncomfortable and worn out at the end. Of course my son is now 22 lbs and heavy! If you are going to be shopping or walking for  over an hour I would bring backup, like a stroller. Unless you have an infant, I didnt use this with an infant.  My baby was about 7 months old before I started using the sling. I wish someone had told me about slings when my baby was a tiny baby!  I prefer a wrap for longer periods of time, but a sling is a must!  **

You'll use this one a lot

By 

from Marina, CA

Comments about New Native Baby Pouch:

As a first time parent there's so much stuff on the market it's hard to know what to choose. Somehow we ended up with several baby carriers. This one is one I reccomend very highly. It's easy to wash, durable, "stylish" (you don't have to look like you're wearing a baby contraption if you take the baby out of it but leave it on--looks like a scarf).I still use this with my son now that he's almost 14 months. I love how I can just throw it on and have him at my hip or back hands free.When he was newborn he loved to take naps in it and I brought him everywhere with my that way. Plus you can discreetly breastfeed. I could go on and on but lastly the sling doubles as a blanket if you should happen to find you need something else to wrap the baby with.
