Earthslings- Review and Giveaway


I am a huge Baby Wearing advocate. I honestly believe it was the right choice for our family. Its funny Mike and I were actually talking the other day and just laughing over how we would have never imagined being the kind of “hippyish” parents we turned out to be, from co-sleeping, to baby wearing, cloth diapering and more. Who would have known? I thought our voyage into parenthood would have gone one way but really as soon as Kaia was born it went in a very different direction. The baby wearing may have been my biggest tackle. I went in not knowing a thing and now I think I am relatively knowledgeable. If you had asked me to tell you the difference between a pouch, ring sling, and soft structured carrier before Kaia was born you may as well have been speaking a different language. Now I can tell you the benefits of each what they have in common their differences and a bit more.

When it comes down to it all the different carriers have different times when they are the most beneficial and different reasons for making them so. For a pouch sling like the Earthslings pouch I have a huge list below stating why it is such a great sling. And believe me it is great. Why I like it though is as far as baby wearing goes pouches are pretty much the most affordable, the easiest to use, the lightest, and the most compact. You can fold them up super small put them in your diaper bag and have them ready to go when needed. The Earthslings I reviewed was the Deep Purple Drill sling. First the Deep purple is GORGEOUS. I do love purple. It washed really well. This is so important for ANY baby wearing product you get. After all, your baby will be spending a lot of time in there and we all know babies are not the cleanest of creatures. From drool, spit up, blow outs and more you need to be able to seriously clean any baby wearing product. As far as ease of use the Earthslings pouch is just about the easiest sling to wear. Just slip it on that’s it no real adjusting- except the baby or toddler. Mikey sits easily in the pouch at 26lbs. We have several positions we use regularly the hip carry is kind of our go to carry position, because it is so fast and easy, it is fantastic and perfect for quick errands. The other is the back carry almost like a piggy back ride I think this may actually be his favorite. The Earthslings pouches and products are beautiful, affordable and easy to use. The sling we received is durable, soft and easy to clean. Definitely an awesome POUCH SLING!
