Product Review & Giveaway/Discount: BabyEtte BabyBasics Ring Sling #babywearing

This giveaway is now closed, but please enjoy the review.

bwseries


As you have already been introduced to Beth earlier this month, now I would like to introduce you to her BabyBasic Super Wide Ring Sling.



Don’t let the word “Basic” fool you, there is nothing plain or ordinary about Babyette BabyBasics super wide ring slings.
One look at the meticulously pleated and decoratively stitched shoulder and you will know that this is not a cheaply made baby carrier.
Each is handmade for you, so I am able to take special requests. (length, fabric, etc.)

Baby Basic slings come in many colors of strong, soft cotton that will continue to soften with wear and washing.
Cocoa Brown, Cranberry Red, Pewter Gray, Plum Purple, Indigo Blue, and Sage Green. Now available in Petal Pink and Sand. Also, of course, you can choose the Original LBD sling in Basic Black.

See all of the basic colors & both shoulder styles in my shop here

* Fanning Pleats are accented with several rows of decorative stitching for safety, beauty, and interest.

* Super wide at 44-inches so you will have enough fabric to support the shoulders of any size baby in any position. Please read my profile page for important info on BabyEtte Super-Wide Slings. 2 -1/2 yards of length for a nice long drape.

* Strong, aluminum rings from Slingrings.com, tested for safety and strength with your baby in mind. **Ring colors may vary and will be matched up per availability.

* An instruction sheet & tips will be included with your sling. And remember to harness the power of YouTube videos! Go forth and learn all you can!
*Thanks to Beth of BabyEtte, I was blessed to receive Sage Green "BabyBasics ring sling to review.* It is absolutely a gorgeous shade of green and there are so many other colors that I would love to have as well! Communicating with Beth has been a delight and I have been completely thrilled with my experience and I do not hesitate to recommend her shop and her customer service.

My sling came neatly wrapped with an awesome homemade label complete with stitching and stamps. It just makes me smile and makes me already feel like I am getting something "green". Cute business cards and washing instructions included. Also, a page with step by step picture directions that explains both how to thread your sling, how to wear your baby in a ring sling and how to transition to nursing. These transition instructions are the best that I have discovered so far.

At first in comparison to other slings, I was thinking that this sling has a lot of fabric... but that is when I discovered that her slings are "super wide". I think that is fabulous! I love my other slings, but having the extra fabric is awesome. There is more to cover up while nursing and more in general to keep my baby cozy and covered. While examining the sling, I found how the tag is on the underside of the shoulder pleats and I think that is a fabulous place for it. I know it will be there if I need it and know that it will not be at the end of the sling to end up in AppleBlossom's mouth... (not that things ever end up in her seven month old mouth...). The sling material is soft and threads easily through the appropriate sized rings.

My only qualm is that the fabric seems to show a bit of wrinkles. I do not have this issue with the Rockin' Baby Sling, because is it such heavy and thick fabric nor with another sling because it is a different material. I think my perfect sling would be a Super Wide sling made of Tencel (maybe I could get a combined effort from BabyEtte and Li'l Peeper Keepers to make my masterpiece *wink*).

Whew and was she right! Thank you for doing all of this because I have been doing alot of research on cloth diapers and baby carrier. Look forward to more of your blog updates!

So many colors to choose from on her site! I think I'd probably go with the navy/indigo because it is lighter but the petal pink (and I am NOT a pink girl) is a very nice shade compared to so many "pinks."
