    Default Slings

    I was wondering if anyone would be able to recommend a sling for my baby. I've been looking at them on ebay but there is so many different styles and fabrics to choose from that I'm feeling quite confused. I like the idea of the ones made from 100% cotton as I feel they would be cooler for summer.
    TIA

    Mako, I bought a baba sling first cause I couldnt be bothered with all the wrapping etc with a hug a bub! But Myles hated the sling, so we bought a hug a bub and he loves it! So do i actually, it does take a little time to put it on but its so very supportive across your back! Its quite cool too considering you have so much fabric! So I am now a hug a bub convert! But it all depends on your baby and how much you want to spend! good luck!x

    O yes! We have something very similar to the hug a bub here in Holland, my sister has it.
    I am borrowing hers for bubs as I absolutely LOVE it!
    It distributes the weight perfectly and bubs sleeps in it like a dream!

    I couldn't afford a hug-a-bub, so bought an Orange Sling, which was a bit cheaper and looked a lot simpler. It worked great. There were quite a few available on ebay last time I checked.
