The Pippalily Pouch Sling is a quick, stylish baby carrier for moms and dads on the go!
Pouch baby slings have been used successfully for centuries. As with any product, slings are the safest when used correctly. When you’re wearing a sling remember:
- IN VIEW AT ALL TIMES
- CLOSE ENOUGH TO KISS
- KEEP CHIN OFF THE CHEST
- SUPPORTED BACK
Nursing in the sling is discreet and very convenient. Simply pull the inside fabric below your breast and latch the baby. To switch to the other breast, simply slide the baby around into the "football hold" nursing position.
Advantages of the Pippalily sling include:
- easy to use with no straps, hooks, buttons, etc.
- baby is in a natural position, cuddled in the sling
- slings tend to be more affordable than other carriers
- longer product usability with the sling, as it is used into toddlerhood
Prior to carrying a newborn we recommend rolling the inside material of the sling, decreasing the amount of material surrounding the baby. Most newborns adore being in a cozy place, close to their mother's core. If you find that you'd prefer a little structure to the sling you can roll up a receiving blanket and lay it under the baby in the sling.
The Hip Carrier is a great tool for your toddler, until they reach 30 lb. The wide strap, and their closeness to your core, allows their weight to be carried by your upper body, instead of your arms or shoulders.
Your Pippalily sling size will typically be the size of your fitted t-shirt. If you find yourself between sizes, in our experience you should choose the larger size baby carrier. The bottom of the sling should rest on or just above your hip bone. A low - hanging baby puts unnecessary pressure on your back and is uncomfortable.
Machine wash your Pippalily in cold water and hang to dry.
