Benefits of a Sling vs. Soft Structured Carriers + Giveaway

I love babywearing my son. I wasn't aware of all the different types of wraps, carriers and slings out there with my daughter. I wish I had done more research about it. There is so much more info about babywearing out there to day. I love the hands-free ability to carry your child and how much easier it makes nursing on the go.

Many areas have baby wearing support groups, where you can learn to use different carriers and even borrow carriers to try out. Breastfeeding support groups (La Leche League, Breastfeeding USA, etc.) can also be a good place to try out a carrier & find out how to use one, since many breastfeeding moms use baby carriers. I have loved a few different types of carriers, but here are the Benefits of a Sling vs. Soft Structured Carriers.

Babywearing with Mamaway Ring Sling

I received a discount to provide this review. All opinions are my own.

I am a HUGE fan of babywearing, which if you follow my blog, then you know that by now. I seriously don't know how I did it with my first and not babywearing. Oh I know, my arms hurt all the time and if there wasn't place to sit down then I wanted to leave. She was a very clingy baby and having a ring sling, like the one I was sent from Mamaway would have been amazing.

This Mamaway ring sling all-round baby carrier allows you to comfortably and safely carry your baby, from newborn till they no longer wish to be carried. The perfect sling for hands free snuggles, getting things done while out and about, settling your baby and breastfeeding easily and discreetly.

Excited for Vacation with the SUKKIRi Baby Ring Sling

I received complimentary products to provide an honest review. All opinions are my own.
I love baby wearing. I love having my hands free, but still snuggle my baby close when they need it. But none of my carriers are really able to go in water. And at the beach or by the pool, being having hands free would be awesome. That's why I was so excited when I received the SUKKIRi Baby Ring Sling to review. We enjoyed using it for most of the summer, but I'm really excited to use it when we go to the beach over fall break in less than two weeks!

Enjoying Summer with LILLEbaby Air Flow

I received complimentary products to provide this review. All opinions are my own.

As I've mentioned, Hubby was on vacation recently, so we did a TON of fun things! Besides heading out for a day at Six Flags White Water, we also went strawberry picking at a local agritourism farm and stayed at the lake for a mini vacation. Of course I brought along my new LILLEbaby COMPLETE 6-in-1 Airflow Baby Carrier.

This thing is awesome. Cool and supremely capable, the Airflow is as versatile as it is ventilated and ideal for sporty parents on the go. The fabric is a breathable 3D mesh for maximum air circulation which brings a breath of fresh air for you and baby. And it is capable of 6 Carrying Positions! It also has a hood, two pockets, lumbar support, neck support, and 2-way straps. Plus it's machine washable!

How I Grocery Shop with an Infant

I was never huge into baby wearing with SweetPea. Not because I didn't want to, I tried...., I just didn't have a good carrier. Which made grocery shopping before she could sit up on her own by myself almost impossible. My husband works in a grocery store, so the last thing he wants to do is go grocery shopping on his days off. He works long hours, so I try to soak up every minute I can with him. I do sometimes leave the kids with m mother-in-law when she isn't working, but I don't like to burden her too much. So grocery shopping with just me and the kids is our norm.

Tips on Grocery Shopping with an Infant

If you've been following me on Instagram (and you should be), I have been sharing my love of my new Boba 4G Carrier in Dusk (which is their top selling carrier).
