well, i must admit...when i first opened the package i thought "this is it??". i didn't realize it would be so...simple. But it came in a wk, the pattern is great and so far my daughter seems to like it. this is my first experience with a pouch other than the KKAFP so i think it will take awhile to get used to; there isn't alot of give in the fabric nor is there much of it, it might take me awhile to feel that dd is secure. i added some pics in my siggy with her in the hula girl print. check them out!

thanks we think she is pretty adorable too! well, it is nice that it is simple. i guess my first thought was, well I could have made this in about 5 minutes. but obviously that isn't the point since i haven't even touched my sewing machine since dd was born!

I got my Hula girl sling too! Kristen is so prompt. However, my slings are too big I contacted her and she is going to take them up for me. I must have had a brain f*@t when I measured myself

I can't wait to enjoy mine like y'all are

Cute! I love that fabric.

Like the other poster said, I love my hotsling because it is so simple! It folds up nice and tiny into the diaper bag, which is great and I love how lightweight it is.

i looked at her website and she said she had a flurry of orders recently...do you think it is from all of us? i think i love my hotsling. today dd slept in it cradle position for 1.5 hrs! She won't tolerate that position in any other carrier we've tried!

I love my hotsling too! I have the Blue Toile sling and I always get compliments no matter where I am. The only place where I see others who sling is in Whole Foods. I give Kristen referrals all the time. I love slinging my baby. It's so easy to cart her around. Plus I love how compact the hotsling is. I can zip it up in my purse or diaper bag no problems!
