Here comes Summer! Summer at Casa Pura Vida means lots of time outdoors- parks, pools, museums, all the things. Now that Little Sister is two, she prefers to walk just like Big Sister. But not so long ago (last summer?), I was on the hunt for a comfortable baby carrier that was easy for me to use and comfortable for baby. I had the opportunity to review the Ring Sling from Hip Baby Wrap, and it is a perfect option for moms who want to wear their baby easily and safely while still engaging in their normal day. And- you can win the Ring Sling from the review- details below! Please note that I received product in exchange for this review- all opinions are my own.
Why Baby Wear
Babywearing has become trendy recently because it is so practical- I wore both of my girls because it was practical and I honestly just loved snuggling with them. But- babywearing is as old as the hills- one of my favorite memories of visiting Peru was watching the Incan women employ the ages old tradition of their culture by wearing their babies while they worked.

Why Ring Sling
The Ring Sling is super easy to use safely with baby. My friend and mom of a 13 week old baby came over to give it a go. The first words out of her mouth were- “oh, this is so much easier to use than the carrier you lent me!” It’s simple to adjust the straps through the ring, and the amount of extra fabric makes it so easy to adjust position and height so both mom and baby are comfortable. The Ring Sling also easy to care for, it just need to be washed and dried separately before use and from then on just cleaned as necessary.
The Bottom Line
The bottom line is that the Ring Sling from Hip Baby Wrap is easy to use and comfortable for both mom and baby. I’m super excited about the different fabric choices- I tested the Desert Ring Sling because I love bright colors, but there is a wide variety to choose from to keep mom and baby comfy and stylish. My package included printed instructions for safely using the wrap, a warranty, and a nice hand written note from the owner of the company¡ Hip Baby Wrap also offers free shipping on all domestic orders, and I think the $58.00 price point is great.
