Hotslings Reversible Baby Sling Carrier

100% Positive Reviews
Rated #4 in Pouch Slings


Pros: Nice quality material

Cons: Baby looks scrunched

I bought a few of these in anticipation for my first in 2006. When she was born, she never seemed to like being in this and I always felt awkward. It always looked and felt like my baby was scrunched up in weird positions.


Pros: easy to use, reversible, pretty

Cons: not super comfortable or versatile

This was the first babycarrier I bought, and I liked it pretty well at first. It's very easy to use, packs up small so it's handy for on-the-go, and was great when DD1 was a wee little one. As she got bigger, though, it pulled on my shoulder a bit and stressed my neck and back. DD was also a wiggler, so when she was older I didn't feel that she was as secure as she could be. It might be that the fit wasn't perfect, but I've since gone on to other more involved but way more comfortable carriers. I still think this is a good option for beginner babywearers.
