Carrier Review: Soul Slings' Ring Sling - Double Layer Coal Chambray



Type of Carrier: Soul Slings’ Ring Sling
Carrier details: Coal Chambray Double Layer (reversible); 100% linen; 28 inches wide and 83 Inches long
Wrappee:  BabyG (boy)– 10 months – 10kgs/22 lbs
Wrapper:  small – chubby build

Overview:

I was very excited to try this when it first arrived. Aside from the fact that it’ll be my first ring sling to try, it is also from India. I just have to say that it arrived really fast via DHL; it just took less than 5 days.

This ‘soul’ number is straight from the mystical land of India where it holds a pocketful of sleepy dust and cushion.

A quick look at how it started: co-owner Chinmayie is a mother of two lovely children and discovered a need for better options than the standard bulky, padded carriers. Ring Slings were not available in India and she had to order from the US so, one day, she decided to take the reigns of design and business that’s when the Soul Slings was born.


Design Double layer spells double comfort. It was already fluffy before I washed it. It is very manageable from the get-go, not a lot of breaking in needed for this double layer sling. Coal Chambray is very neutral and flexible for both genders to wear. I also like how it is reversible, stylish and modern for your outfits to be paired with.

You may use the extra tail as a hoodie as I do when it’s too bright or too humid for naptime. It can double as a private screen if you’re breastfeeding when you’re out and about.

Unlike wraps, it’s a no-brainer and easy to use. It’s lightweight, easy to stow away or you can just let it hang on your shoulder to just pop your baby in and out. Don’t let the thin linen fool you, it holds great support but very breezy and comfy. Its natural linen fibers have antibacterial qualities, too.

Natural linen fibers can normally come a little loose so, no worries, it’s one of its ‘unique and beautiful’ characteristics. 1


·     Weather/seasonIt’s normally recommended for cooler seasons but I still find it breezy for tropical seasons.

·     Type/s of carry -  Hip and front carries were tried and I must say that the sling delivers! I was kind of hesitant to wear Baby G on one shoulder as he is growing really heavy. 2








I wore him for about 1 hour at a mall this Halloween and later on decided to check out the new Sky Ranch (which looks like a mini them park with about a dozen rides). Baby G was a happy camper despite the crowd, the noise and bedtime was drawing near at that time.

·       Mummy budget – For under $48 or 2,250 php, this is a great steal for your starter stash (or your collection).

Sunny summary
I give it 4 sprinkles of sleepy dust out of 5!

Soul Sling notes: 
 1 Soul Slings Linen fabrics may show color variations, loose threads, and tiny slubs, snags or unevenness that are characteristic of natural fiber textile. These variations should in no way be considered flaws or defects as they do not affect the functionality of the sling. It is the nature of the fabric and, they highlight its natural beauty and uniqueness.

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…
