Have you ever seen these before? It’s a baby sling from Seven Slings.
Last year, I got an email for a free one, so I decided to try it out. Scooters had outgrown our beloved “pouch“, but sometimes he needed me to hold him while I needed to do something else with my arms. It worked pretty well. He was still heavy, but it did help. And it was easy to use and super compact. So, I slipped it in my diaper bag and it’s been really handy.
Then a few months later, I got another email for a free one. So, I got another one to put in Scooters’ 72-hour kit that I keep in the van. I figured it would be a good thing to have in an emergency.
Then a couple days ago, I got another email for a free one. So, tonight I just purchased another one to put in our fire evacuation kit in Bubbers’ room upstairs. I would feel a lot better climbing out the window with Scooters in my arms, if I had something like this to help, too!
So, I can definitely see why they keep sending me emails. :) And the next time they send me one, I’ll get one for the baby’s 72-hour kit. And then one for an alternate fire evacuation kit I’m planning to put in the baby’s room upstairs.
Just in case you want to try one out, too, the current promo code is “CUPID”. (Just go to their website, select the size of carrier and then enter the code). You do have to pay shipping ($11.95) and the sizing is tricky (I had to return my first one that ended up being a size too small). They say the code works while supplies last.
Oh, and they have nothing to do with this free little advertisement. I just thought it might be helpful to other moms out there and wanted to pass it on. :)
p.s. Their website indicates that their slings are safe to use with newborns, if you follow their safety instructions. One of my favorite things about the sling is its versatility–it can be used for newborns up to toddlers weighing 35 lbs.
