Carrier Review: Soul Slings' Ring Sling Celadon - Handwoven

 post washed and braided for almost a week to break in


 Soul Slings' tester stash: pre-washed


Type of Carrier: Soul Slings’ Ring Sling
Wrap details: Celadon (teal green); 100% cotton – handwoven; 28 inches wide and 83 Inches long
Wrappee:  BabyG (boy)– 10 months – 10kgs/22 lbs
Wrapper:  small – chubby build



First glance – It was stiff and neatly ironed when I first had my hands on Celadon. It seemed unyielding to my molding powers as I braided it to be less “beastly”. Like most 100% cotton handwoven wraps, this needs more breaking in compared to Sapphire 100% linen which was lightweight, floppy and a tad slippy. Once broken in, Celadon is very supportive and essentially maintains grip to lock your sling position in place.





Design – 100% cotton blend can be a little thicker compared to its linen sling sisters. Yet still breathable but not as cool and breezy like linen. Celadon with white stripes is, again, gender neutral.

Weather/season – I recommend wearing this on a windy day if you stay in tropical places. Good with different seasons but not toasty enough for autumn or winter, so layer up accordingly.

Our little sling meet - SPiN mommies (mostly from Las Pinas)

One SPiN Mommy tried Celadon for her 9 week old baby girl after the flash mob.
She said that the Celadon felt nice and grippy on the shoulder and her squish is snug as a bug. 
note: she changed from SSC to a Ring sling without waking up baby ;)


Type/s of carry – mostly front carries; when I had some Mommy friends try it during our little sling meet and after our first Babywearing Flash mob in the Philippines (by South Pinanays group), most of them, first timers and experienced sling Mommas alike,  raved how supportive it is on the shoulder and the carry itself.

Mummy budget –it’s yours for around $31, what a deal!


Sunny summary – 4.5 sprinkles of sleepy “soulful” dust – toddler worthy!

Carrier Review: Baby SaBye Mei Tai

Type of Carrier: Baby SaBye Mei Tai
Carrier details: Mei Tai  - reversible blue and red; standard size; handwoven 100% natural cotton; vegetable dye
The back is 14.5 inches (at waist) and 16 inches (at shoulder) wide; 17 inches tall without waist strap. Each shoulder strap is 9.5 to 10.5 inches wide, and 87 inches long. Waist strap is 3 inches wide and 69 inches long.
Wrappee:  BabyG (boy)– 10 months – 10kgs/22 lbs
Wrapper:  small – chubby build –US size 10

First glance – Baby Sabye Mei Tai looked thick and a bit rough. This is my first time to try a mei tai and I had some reservations with the straps, the size where Baby G will “sit on”  and if it can withstand Baby G’s weight on the get-go. When I tried tying the waist belt, it was crunchy and I made an effort to tighten the knot to secure it. The straps were thinner than the waist belt which was floppy and flexible. When I wore Baby G, it was an instant hit with us!





This Mei Tai has been with us for about 3 weeks because we had other test…
