But first, here is our Dandy prize!

I’ve been babysitting a few cuties lately during the day while their mothers (my good friends) have appointments or work shifts.  Its been so fun having little babies in the house again!  My two beefy boys are so sweet with these freshies, and its been fun pulling out all our infant toys and swings.  One thing I totally forgot about is how much of the day you can spend carrying that baby on your hip!  Especially when they’re missing their mommies, I find I spend these entire babysitting days carrying them around in my arms.  Boy oh boy, am I out of shape!  Where has all my arm strength gone?  I started digging through my baby boxes to find my wraps and realized that a sling would be a whole lot easier for these in-and-outers.  I am soooo glad one of these Hot Slings arrived at my door to review!  Great timing.

This is the Lemon Mist Hot Sling, sold for $64.95 at www.hotslings.com.  Over $60 might sound like a lot for what you imagine would be just a loop a fabric, but let me show and tell you about how this sling is so superior to others I’ve tried in the past.

hot1First of all, I find slings to be so much more realistic than full body wraps just because of the time it takes to put on yourself and get the baby situated inside.  I feel like with a full wrap, by the time you get yourself wrapped up folds of fabric that criss-cross every which way, the baby is inconsolable and not in the mood to be snuggled at all.  Slings are fast to put on, and easy to place around baby.  This is a wide shoulder design, so that all of the baby’s weight isn’t directed on one focal point by your neck.  You can distribute the weight all along your shoulder and upper arm, which allows you to carry that cutie for longer hours before feeling sore and tired.

hotThere are inner straps sewn into the design that allow you to really get a customized fit.  Two buckles on the outside allow you to adjust securely.  Also included in this sling packaging is a diaper/wipes sack with velcro closure to toss in the diaper bag!  Cute and functional!  Thanks, HotSlings.

hot2Another feature that I really love, and haven’t seen on other slings, is a ring of padding along the top and bottom of the sling.  It keeps the fabric from digging into your side and back, as well as baby’s back and legs.  The curve in the design is perfect for snuggling little baby shapes comfortably.

hot3I carried sweet baby C around in this for a couple hours and she was perfectly content.  Body contact is so great for babies.  I love this sling!  I’m impressed, pleased, and glad to have this around the house–for all the babies that visit and future babies of my own. HS-Styles-for-BlogThese HotSlings are available in so many fun prints!  I love how lots of them are gender neutral and geometric.
