Hotsling question...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I was reading the carrier thread and noticed a lot of you are going with the hotsling. I really wanted one, and I told this to my mother-in-law because she was looking for a good present to get us. She happens to be a pretty good seamstress as well, and decided to make one instead. I now have a homemade hotsling that I think looks pretty similar to the prototype. However, since I don't really know what a real one looks like.......does this sould like what you ladies have? Basically a tube of folded-in-half fabric, that at one end has an "s" curve type shape to it. REALLY SIMPLE
I also am not entiely sure I know what to do with it. My mother-in-law has no clue and is no help. I mean, she looked up hotsling patterns, made one, and handed it over. I assume the baby goes in the "s-curve" part, and that you need to put the baby inside the fold of fabric until they are strong enough to sit up in it? Anybody have any good websites that demonstrate the wearing of this pouch? I also have a maya wrap and a baby bjorn, but they both seem pretty easy. Of course, I did buy those, so they came with some instruction. I'm sure hotslings are even easier!

I have no clue how they work. We'll be going to a shop after babe is born to get fitted (the owner was BIG on this) and she'll show me!

Good luck!

Instructions directly from the hotsling site - they have little movie clips to demonstrate - http://www.hotslings.com/s.nl/it.I/id.5/.f

the current issue of mothering mag has a great article on proper sling wearing - check it out. I found it very helpful!

thanks ladies....
I went to the hotsling site (don't know why my brain can't think of these things on it's own : ) and it was amazingly helpful. Full demonstration of what you are supposed to do. Thank you.
I get Mothering, and loved that article too. Just was looking for a little more specific "hotsling" demonstration. Looks like I have the exact same thing as the real prototype, except mine does not have the "padding" they talk about on the website. I'm sure that matters very little anyway. Can't wait to try it out on my little one!!!
