Balboa Baby Adjustable Sling (Preparing For Baby Guide)

Going through my list of must haves that I feel are needed before the new baby gets here, I tend to find myself looking over many companies and trying to narrow down which product I feel will suit mine and the new babies needs. One item, that I know I am not the only one who sees as being a must have, is a baby carrier to carry the baby in. It can get quite overwhelming when looking at your options with baby carriers. There are so many different styles and companies to choose from. But that is what is so great about being able to review the items ahead of time, that way I can see for myself and tell others what I think. Recently I was sent a sling from Balboa Baby. I was sent the Balboa Baby Adjustable Sling in Brown Berry to review. When the baby sling came in the first thing I noticed after taking it out of the box, was how soft this baby carrier is. I love that it is made from cotton and is machine washable! With my babies, they have both had issues with eczema, which they unfortunately got from me. So when I look for products for my babies, I have learned to not just look but also feel. I want the new baby to be comfortable and to try and keep the new babies skin irritations down to a minimum so if this new baby ends up having eczema like myself and its siblings have, I can try to minimize the skin irritations. The second thing I noticed right away was how easy it was to get the sling on. I dont know about you, but it seems when I get new baby carriers I have to practice getting them on and off, so when I put the baby in it I dont have any mishaps. I love how versatile this sling is, not only does it stretch and grow with your baby but it can be worn in many different ways which makes the whole baby wearing experience that much more enjoyable, knowing that both you and baby are comfortable!
I also love that the strap is padded, which is a huge plus when you are going for a day of baby wearing! A bonus on this sling is that there is a little pouch on the front, which is perfect for carrying your keys, cell or extra pacifier in! In all, I am very impressed with the Balboa Baby Adjustable Sling and I cant wait to be able to use it with our new baby!!!

This was not a paid post and honest/original opinions were used and they are my own. Thank you to the company and/or pr agency who supplied the product for review,

I like their different patterns too that would be of interest to the baby and help in development. Nice product.

I would like the padding. I wonder if you could use one to carry a small pet?
