I can't walk 2 feet without being bombarded with questions about my slings. I feel like a movie star! Everywhere I go, women gather around me wanting to know where to buy one for themselves, a friend, a daughter, etc. It's WILD!

(I use Moby Wrap and SlingEzee and soon a SolarVeil Sling by Kangaroo Korner)

Can anyone else relate? It's so much attention! And at what point should I hand out sling maker's business cards?!?

HeHeHe!! I actually did that with my Buggy Bag. lol Not exactly baby wearing stuff but I had one of those cart covers for the grocery store carts and I used to get loads of questions. I just gave them the cards she sent me I had stashed in the pockets. One time at Walmart I had a man asking a gazillion questions and his wife walked over and he was like "honey look at this" . lol Needless to say she was not at all pleased and just said "thats nice" and walked away. :LOL Didnt think her man needed to be talking to strange women at Walmart I guess.:LOL :LOL

It's like we're walking billboards!

I should probably try to find the woman who was selling the Moby Wrap at LLLI conference in SF last summer. She's the one that I bought mine from. I loved the sling, but had no extra money at the conference for anything (I swear we were living off the free yogurt Stoneyhill Farms donated). Anyway, she cut me a deal on one of the demo slings. I'm so indebted to her as I really enjoy my Moby.

TOTALLY! I get/got questions, inquiries, comments all the time, so I decided to find out how to sell them. And now I do. So I can just hand folks a card and tell them ALL about babywearing and my slings.

We always get comments every time we go anywhere too! I've only seen one other person (besides two friends of mine who sling), wearing a sling!!

This happens to me all the time. Luckily, both of my slings (Moby & MomnMe pouch) have the website address on the tag, which is promintently located on the front of the sling. Smart people, LOL! I wish I had business cards, though, I'd love to support both companies as much as possible, wonderful products.
