Amazonas Brazilian Baby Carrying Sling

DESCRIPTION: A traditional Brazilian wraparound sling for baby, consisting of a colourful length of material that is tied around the body to carry your baby in a variety of positions. It is 450cm x 70cm, and is suitable to hold babies from birth up to 20kg (approx. 24 months). Made from 100% cotton.

GOOD POINTS: This support system is made from very strong but soft material, and is available in a range of bold stripy colours - melon, tropical or mango. The sling has no straps, clips, buckles or belts, and is a single stretch of material that you tie around your body to carry the baby in both front and back support positions.

 Amazonas Brazilian Baby Carrying Sling as wornFor small babies up to 6 months, the "resting" (cradle) and "upright" positions are recommended. The resting position is suitable for babies until they are about 8 weeks, and this position snuggly supports and conceals your newborn, and is also ideal for discrete breast feedingOnce your baby is about 6 months old and can sit without support, you can use the wrapping styles "sitting" or "back". These positions can be worn really comfortably for long periods even with heavier children, as the baby’s weight is distributed to your hips and shoulders rather than your back.

The sling caters well for your growing child by making simple adjustment to the knots. Diagrams are provided to show you how to wear it in various positions, and the material is fully machine washable.

BAD POINTS: The sling can be quite difficult to get used to and requires practice to use on your own, but gets easier as you use it more. It is difficult to adjust when being worn, and the knots are quite bulky making it slightly uncomfortable to wear under outer garments.

PRICE: Approx. £40
