    Default got my first sling!

    got my first sling today and i love it! figured out how to nurse in it and wore it while i dealt with the toddler and cleared the dinner dishes!

    between that and the nursing pillow, i can type with TWO HANDS! yes, two hands, but that doens't mean i have enough mobility for capitals, so you'll all have to suffer with my typing...

    this is great. i can probably even learn to knit on the couch wearing this thing.

    thanks zenmama! she helped me out at vesta with the slings today!

    I love how you say "first" sling. I hear another addict in the making, lol.
    I wore my ring sling in the park today & got to play with my 2 year old. Hands free is great...so is the workout of carrying 15 extra pounds while going down jungle gym equipment...

    ring sling, like a taupe colour w flowers on it, probably prettier than most clothing that fits me right now. nice light fabric for summer

    if i use it enough i figure i'll get a few more in different fabrics.

    i'd post a pic i took today if i could figure out how...

    Definitely the early signs of addiction, lol.

    Good for you! I'm glad you're feeling comfy in it! I'm sure it's lovely, too.

    if you get one dont just go to a regular store for your first, take your babe and find someone who will help you try them on and show you different ways to use it

    i went to vesta but siana's got some!

    MilkyMama makes amazing slings as well. I know Cheeky Monkey has a few too (not 100%).
