freeloaderYa’ll know I love to baby wear…. Well, Itty Bittums isn’t so bitty anymore and we have had to pass along some of our smaller carriers to new homes. I am sooo looking forward to checking out the new Freeloader!

freeloader3The Freeloader is the First Child Carrier Built Specifically for Toddlers! It is a new, better child carrier.

Babywearing: Getting stuff done with the Mamaway Ring Sling Baby Carrier!

I’m a baby wearing mama. Why? Well first off, both my kiddos did really well being close to me. They slept well, and were less fussy when I was wearing them, in contrast to the times when they were in their stroller or carseat. There is something to be said for the comfort of being close to Mommy.

IMG_0880Secondly, you can get more stuff done when you are baby wearing. You aren’t trapped in the room with the baby swing or whatever contrivance the kiddo is chilling in. Washing dishes, folding laundry, doing crafts with Lil’ Man. All of these things are possible while baby wearing.

Recently I got the chance to try out a new ring sling from the cool folks at Mamaway. Their ring sling is made fron 100% Pima Cotton, so it’s super comfy, breathable and machine washable!

Mamaway Ring Sling is an all-around baby carrier perfect for your newborn. The right fit and customizable shape gives your baby the perfect comfort, snugness and love they deserve. Position your baby any way you want; upright or lying down, in front, on your hip or behind your back. Ideal for hands-free cuddles- as you can see from my photos in this post.

IMG_0878You can also nurse your kidlet in this sling too, which is a plus in my book! While this ring sling can hold up to 100 pounds, I don’t think I’ll still be toting around Birdy when she’s that big!

Screen Shot 2015-09-05 at 7.21.23 PMI chose the striped “Cesar Salad” Color because I’m trying to keep everything gender neutral. I’m just not into pink. The rings are STRONG, and there is a little pocket in the sling too- perfect for stowing a few things (like my sunglasses!). This is a must have, and would make a great Baby shower gift!

I was given a free Mamaway Ring Sling to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own and I received no financial compensation for this review.

Looking for a great Baby Shower Gifts?

As a mommy, there are tons of stuff in the baby stores that are completely unnecessary.  However, I am going to share with you a couple items that are a staple in our house- I couldn’t leave home without them. I was able to score a sweet deal on each one through one of my many networks of affiliates just for my readers!

The First was the Carseat Canopy.  Some people just drape a blankie over the top, but this canopy fastens onto the handle of the infant car seat. It won’t fall off.
Right now my peeps over at Escalate Network wants to give you a promo code for a free carseat canopy (a $49.95 value) here.  The promo code is “ENBABY”

Click on “Shop Now”, select any canopy you would like (be sure to go to their sizing page so you can get the right size carrier for you). Once you have selected your size, you will automatically be directed to the “shopping bag” where you can enter the promo code “ENBABY” This promo code will take off 100% of the canopy purchase and all you are required to pay are the shipping fees. You can use the code more than once – you just have to open a new browser/window to do so. This deal is hot, so it won’t last long!

I’m a baby wearer.  I wore Lil’man in all kinds of contraptions, including a sling, and now I wear Birdy too. Thanks to out buddies over at Seven, you can be a baby wearer too!

Seven Slings wants to give you a promo code for afree baby carrier (a $48 value). The promo code is “ENBABY”.

I’m a proponent of breastfeeding. Even in public. However, I always covered my boobs up, because nudity makes some people uncomfortable. Right now, Udder Covers (BTW, I hate that name.  I don’t have udders.  I have breasts. Ta Ta’s, Boobies, “boo boos” as Lil’ Guy refers to them, whatever you call it, I only have two, and I’m not a cow.) wants to give you a promo code for a free patterned breastfeeding cover (a $35 value) here.

The promo code is “ENBABY” Click “Shop Now”, select any cover you would like. You will automatically be directed to the “shopping bag” where you can enter the promo code “ENBABY” This promo code will take off 100% of the nursing cover purchase and all you are required to pay are the shipping fees.

You can use the code more than once – you just have to open a new browser window to do so. Due to its nature, this offer can’t last long so please order soon.

Each of these makes a great gift, buy one or all, any new mom would LOVE to receive them.  I kept all three of mine for use with Birdy!
