Product name: Wise Woman Sling

Brief description of product: Adjustable Pouch/Ring Sling. It has the fit of a pouch with a deep curved pocket, with the adjustability of a ring sling. 100% cotton flannel. A great unpadded sling for people who like a closed tail (like a Nojo or OTSBH) but hate all the padding.

Price: Odds & Ends - $28, I got the Oriental Floral - so pretty and soft!!

How long have you used this product? Just got it, but I am a ring sling pro.

Fit/Sizing: One size fits all.

Performance: I had my 2 year-old in it very comfortably and I am 8 months pregnant.

Workmomship: Made with a French seam and fantastic aluminum rings from slingrings.com. All stitching perfect. She sews better than me! LOL!

Customer Service/Communication: Jeni is super nice and goes the extra mile.

Would you purchase this product again? We traded slings and I would definitely do it again or recommend to a friend.

Have you made a complaint to the WAHM about the product? If yes, please provide details of any resolution or lack thereof. Nope.

Additional Comments: Great WAHMade product - highly recommend.

Product name: Wise Woman Sling

Brief description of product: Adjustable Pouch/Ring Sling. It has the fit of a pouch with a deep curved pocket, with the adjustability of a ring sling. 100% cotton flannel. Sage flannel.

Store/Site of purchase: Ebay auction by Jeni.

Price: $25.00

How long have you used this product? Just got it, but have 3 other ring slings to compare it to!

Fit/Sizing: One size fits all.

Performance: In the hip position it is great. Would be super easy for someone who has never used a ring sling to figure out. Not too much fabric and no confusion over rails, etc. Simplicity of a pouch with adjustability of a ring sling! Nursed Abby in it as well. Works just like a pouch, but I can pull her closer!

Workmomship: Well sewn. Love the aluminum rings, super light and no seams! Super soft flannel. Will be nice and cozy come winter.

Customer Service/Communication: Great service.

Would you purchase this product again? Definitely.

Have you made a complaint to the WAHM about the product? No!

Additional Comments: If you love the idea of an adjustable pouch, yet don't want buttons, this is the sling for you. If you are new to slinging or were previously intimidated by a ring sling, give this one a try. Just enough fabric to carry your baby, no extra to confuse you.

Product name: Wise Woman Sling

Brief description of product: A ring sling with a generous pouch made of soft, lightweight flannel.

Store/Site of purchase: Ebay

Price: $26.00

How long have you used this product? I got it on Tuesday and have used it 4 times (today is Thursday)

Fit/Sizing: Great fit, easy to adjust, seems like it could fit any shape or size, no special measurements were needed and it fit great straight out of the package. It's veeeery comfortable!

Performance: Excellent. I have worn it around the house and on an excursion to the outlet mall. It never cuts or digs and I like how it cuddles my toddler in the hip carry position. I can't wait to use it on a newborn, too!

Workmomship: Absolutely fabulous. No threads fraying, very strong seams, soft fabric, beautiful handwork!!

Customer Service/Communication: Excellent. Very quick response via email, super quick shipping (esp. for Labor Day weekend!!), and genuine offers for any questions or help at any time.

Would you purchase this product again? Most definitely. I will have to get at least a couple more colors!!


Additional Comments: I am a mother to a 2 year old (28 months) who has never been in a sling in his entire life! I put it on (with the help of excellent directions included with the sling) and had Austin snug in the hip carry in seconds. He was so mad when we took it off for nap. This is a fabulous product and I totally recommend it to anyone, especially first time sling users. If I can sling, anyone can. Especially with a Wise Woman sling. The sling also came very prettily packaged which I thought showed the pride that Jeni puts into her product.

I give it (How many thumbs up out of five?):

ETA: I had to add some more thumbs and this update-I've had the sling for about 2 months now and I absolutely LOVE it!! Austin loves it and even though I still give him a choice between stroller and sling, he always says "SING!" (which means sling :LOL) I can't believe how much we use it-I am in the process of getting another one now. This sling is so very very easy to use and very versatile. I also can sling him chest to chest with me for when he's sleepy. I can't say enough good things about this WAHM & her product!

Product name: Wise Woman Sling

Brief description of product: ring sling with sewn tail and built-in pouch

Store/Site of purchase: www.wisewomansling.com

Price: 5 lbs. castile soap :LOL

How long have you used this product? 2 hours and I love it already!

Fit/Sizing: one size fits all, and it looks like it actually would, too

Performance: Fantastic. I had to try it on as soon as it arrived, and it was super easy -- I've been using my self-modified Maya Wrap daily for months now but putting on & adjusting the WW for the first time was easier I love how streamlined it is, like another reviewer said, just enough fabric and no extra to get in the way. The sewn-in pouch meant I didn't need to tweak and adjust to get the pouch area "just right". It was also easier to nurse in than my Maya -- the top rail next to the seam is just the right shape to pull up and support dd's head without covering her whole head, which she hates. And my "ring shoulder" has more mobility, without the sling riding up on my neck.

Workmomship: Great. The pouch has a nice, wide, flat French seam. All the sewing looks like it's very precise. She definitely sews better than I do. :LOL

Customer Service/Communication: Great. Jeni was so sweet and friendly. We swapped, and she had to have have shipped the sling before I shipped her soap, for it to get here so fast.

Would you purchase this product again? Yes, if I were to buy a sling for a sling-newbie (or recommend one), this would be the one. I'm already thinking about having Jeni sew the fabric from my beloved Maya into a WW.

Additional Comments: I got the Garden Corduroy and it's really pretty. The swatch on the site doesn't do it justice. I had bought some of this fabric, myself, a while back, so I knew what it looked like in person, but I was still pleasantly surprised at how pretty the sling looks on. The texture of the corduroy is so nice, too.

I give it (How many thumbs up out of five?): !

Product name: Wise Woman Sling

Brief description of product: Adjustable Pouch/Ring Sling. It has the fit of a pouch with a deep curved pocket, with the adjustability of a ring sling. Mine is made of cotton stretch twill.

Store/Site of purchase: www.wisewomansling.com

Price: $30

How long have you used this product? 1 week

Fit/Sizing: One size fits all and it fits perfectly! I'm on the "chunky" side and this sling fits me with some room to spare still!

Performance: WOW! I absoultely can not say how much i this sling. I can nurse in this easily and walk around if I need to. And willow LOVES being tummy to tummy in it and sleeps contently like that. So versitale because of the rings but i ADORE not having a big ole tail to deal with. I wore it for about 2+ hours tonight while we grocery shopped and willow slept the entire time and my back didnt ache at all! Not to mention I received SO many compliments on the fabric and how comfy willow looked! Instead of everyone coming up to me and asking if she liked being scrunched like that ...everyone came up to me and told me how happy and content she must be to be so close to her mommy

Workmomship: Flawless! I dont see a stitch out of place or a loose thread anywhere!

Customer Service/Communication: Good! the owner sent me a ship notice when my item shipped and it arrived 2 days later!

Would you purchase this product again? ABSOLUTELY!

Have you made a complaint to the WAHM about the product? If yes, please provide details of any resolution or lack thereof N/A

Additional Comments: so far this is by far my favorite sling and the one I always reach for first!

Brief description of product: Adjustable Pouch/Ring Sling. It has the fit of a pouch with a deep curved pocket, with the adjustability of a ring sling. Silk Brocade

Store/Site of purchase: http://www.wisewomansling.com

Price: Odds & Ends - $60

How long have you used this product? 1 month

Fit/Sizing: It fits great! I've tried numerous pouches and ring slings and never really found one that fit perfecty...this one does.

Performance: it performs well...I especially like the closed tail - no "cape" to contend with.

Workmomship: Stitches are perfect, the cut is perfect - very well made.

Customer Service/Communication: Jeni is very friendly and shipping ws super fast !

Would you purchase this product again? HA - I already did I bought the brocade and a week later I decided to get an "everday" sling - the bright strip cord.

Have you made a complaint to the WAHM about the product? If yes, please provide details of any resolution or lack thereof

Additional Comments: quick shipping, fair pricing, freindly customer service, a sling that looks great and fits even better - what more could you ask for !?

I give it (How many thumbs up out of five?):

ETA: Another happy WWS user. I got the bright stripes corduroy and am amazed. It is SO soft and well made. The stripes all match up at the seams ( a sign of an excellent seamstress) and every stich is perfect. I can't say enough good things about this sling. <added 5 more thumbs up !)

Product name: Wise Woman Sling

Brief description of product: Adjustable Pouch/Ring Sling. Khaki with black flowers stretch twill.

Store/Site of purchase: http://www.wisewomansling.com

Price: Odds & Ends - $35

How long have you used this product? about 2 months

Fit/Sizing: Perfect! Very easily adjustable, without the bunching that happens with a Maya.

Performance: Awesome! I used my Maya everyday for an entire year and never thought I could love another sling more, but this is the one! The pouch is soooooooo much easier to deal with. I could never get the hang of carrying ds on my back in the Maya, but it's no problem with the WWS. I love that it's so adjustable; I also have a KKAFP but find it very difficult to nurse in it. Simple to nurse in this one, just slide it looser to nurse, then slide back up tight to carry. Again, I love that the tail does not bunch up in the rings, which always drove me crazy with the Maya. And it's very easy to learn to use, my sister took 25-lb ds for a walk having never worn a sling before and had no problems with it.

I traveled by myself, with a 13 month old 25-lb not-yet-walking toddler, 2 heavy carry-ons, and 2 huge checked bags from Seattle to NYC. My first flight was cancelled and my second flight had mechanical failure, so it ended up being 17 hours from the time we left my mom's house in Seattle to the time we arrived at my home in NYC. I swear to g-d, I could never have done it without my sling.

Workmomship: Excellent.

Customer Service/Communication: Friendly and fast.

Would you purchase this product again? I probably will, the next time I have to buy a baby shower gift.

Have you made a complaint to the WAHM about the product? If yes, please provide details of any resolution or lack thereof: N/A

Additional Comments: The only thing about this that I don't like as much as the Maya is the fabric; I prefer the softer fabric of the Maya. I should have asked Jeni some questions about the fabric and I probably would have ended up picking a different one.

Workmomship: Absolutely beautiful! The stitching is strong and the fabric is even more beautiful in person than it was online.

Would you purchase this product again? Absolutely! I'm thinking of getting a second for my DH.

Product name: wise woman sling

Brief description of product: ring sling, cotton flannel

Store/Site of purchase: www.wisewoman.com

Price: $28 including shipping!!

How long have you used this product? about 4 months

Fit/Sizing: one size fits all, works for dh & I

[B]Performance: Great the only ring sling dh will use on his own. [B]Easy to get on & adjust. I've only used it w/ a babe who can sit up on his own so I can't say how it is w/ a newborn.
The advantages of this sling are that there is no long tail. It's small & easy to maneuver in the rings. Does not get tangled (like the maya wrap) in the rings. There is a pouch already made to fit a baby in.
Compact enough to fit in the diaper bag.

Workmomship:Fabulous, beautifully sewn, strong

Customer Service/Communication: took a bit longer to receive it than I thought (2 weeks) I had to email about it, found out she was waiting on a ring shipment.

Would you purchase this product again?
Yes,I have! bought one for my sister

Additional Comments: This is a beautifully made, easy to use sling & at an unbelievable price for the quality.

I have 2 of these - a brocade and a flannel and I LOVE them!

I also got one for dd and Jeni included a matching scrunchie!

All three transactions I had were absolutely flawless, what a great WAHM!

Also, these are great for a larger mama, as there is nothing extra to them, its just the right amout of fabric. I get so many complements on the brocade.

Product name: Wise Woman Sling

Brief description of product: Adjustable Pouch/Ring Sling. It has the fit of a pouch with a deep curved pocket, with the adjustability of a ring sling. Cotton Batik

Store/Site of purchase: http://www.wisewomansling.com

Price: $60

How long have you used this product? 3 months

Fit/Sizing: Perfect!

Performance: I have three other slings, none of which worked well for my chunky, wiggly, 17mo toddler girl. Others worked well for her as an infant, but either didn't support her well, or cut into her chubby thighs. My Wise Woman sling is a PERFECT FIT for her. All the advantages of ease that a ring sling offers, but with a deep pouch that supports her bottom AND back for extended wear. I love it!

Workmomship: Beautiful, durable and very functional... by far my most attractive sling!

Customer Service/Communication: Fast and easy!

Would you purchase this product again? Definitely.

Have you made a complaint to the WAHM about the product? If yes, please provide details of any resolution or lack thereof. Nope.

Additional Comments: prompt shipping

Product name: Wise Woman Sling

Brief description of product: Flannel pouch/ring sling

Store/Site of purchase: www.wisewomansling.com

Price: $30 or so

How long have you used this product? one week

Fit/Sizing: Perfect

Performance:
AMAZING. I have another ring sling that DS liked well enough, but which was aggravating a pinched nerve and was hard to adjust and got twisted constantly. This sling is soooo comfy and easy to adjust. The tail is closed, so doesn't get twisted, and isn't in the way. The deep pouch is wonderfully supportive for my young refluxy baby who likes to sit upright, facing out. I love it!! My other ring sling has steel rings, these are aluminum, I think, and are so much lighter and grab the fabric so much better.

Workmomship: Very high quality.

Customer Service/Communication:

Would you purchase this product again? YES!

Have you made a complaint to the WAHM about the product? If yes, please provide details of any resolution or lack thereof

Additional Comments: I thought I would miss the tail for coverup, but I don't at all. I'm just so happy to have a sling that doesn't kil my back and doesn't need to be untwisted after every use.

Product name: Wise Woman Sling

Brief description of product: I have two, one floral denim and one floral twill

Store/Site of purchase: www.wisewomansling.com

Price: $35 for floral denim and $20 for floral twill made from my own fabric. I also bought another custom made for my step-sister.

How long have you used this product? over a year

Fit/Sizing: Perfect...just adjustable enough to make it fabulous to use!

Performance:
I have always wanted to use a pouch for the ease of up/down but the few that I tried just didn't work well in reality. I either felt like the baby was going to fall out at any moment OR I couldn't nurse using the pouch. With the WWS adjustability I have the ease of use of a pouch with the adjustability of a sling...perfect!

Workmomship: Absolutely stunning. The construction is flawless and STILL looks flawless after countless times through the washing machine and dryer. First rate!

Customer Service/Communication: Excellent communication during the custom sling order.

Would you purchase this product again? Absolutely! I keep eyeing the hemp/silk combo!

Have you made a complaint to the WAHM about the product? If yes, please provide details of any resolution or lack thereof.

Absolutely no complaints at all!

Additional Comments: This is my favorite sling bar none (including the ones I made for myself LOL!)

I give it (How many thumbs up out of five?): 5++++
