Are slings good for newborns?
Yes, yes and once again yes a baby sling is good for a newborn! Babies loved to be carried. They love to feel close to you, to hear your heartbeat. Carrying your baby in a baby sling is often called babywearing, and for as old as mankind it has been done. Carrying your baby in a baby sling will help you bond, will allow you to have two hands-free and get on with daily life whilst still giving comfort, support, and love to your newborn infant.
What are the best baby slings?
The best baby sling is one which is safe, ergonomic and comfortable. When buying a baby sling you need to ensure that it conforms to the latest standards and has been rigorously tested. Not all baby slings have been tested, so ensure that you buy from a sling shop, like us, or reputable retailer.
The best baby sling for a newborn is a stretchy wrap. There are loads on the market, which was more or less started by the Moby wrap. However modern stretchy wraps have moved significantly since the heavy, thick original Moby wrap. We LOVE the Lillebaby tie the knot wrap. It is super lightweight, easy to use and put on, very forgiving and very strong and sturdy.

What age can babies go in slings?
Newborn babies can go in slings from the moment they are born, provided the sling is suitable from birth (and no complications like premature babies etc.). A stretchy baby wrap normally lasts up to age 6 - 9 months, depending on the quality. After this, they are not as comfortable as a woven wrap or a buckle baby carrier to carry in.
You can carry your infant up to age 4 in ring slings, woven wraps or buckle carriers, again depending on their size guidelines.
