Beana Baby Slings!

Have you ever fallen in love with a shirt or a pair of shoes even before you tried them on? That’s the exact feeling I felt when I received my very own Beana Baby ring sling a couple of weeks ago. It was my first real ring sling and I knew we would be best buds from the get go.

First I need to mention, this sling is simply gorgeous. The fabric I chose: vibrant and amazingly stunning. The stitching: perfect.

I wanted something fun and bold for the summer and I totally got what I asked for when I decided on the Michael Miller Cherry Stripes. The sling is totally sturdy; you can safely carry your newborn all the way until they are a hefty 40 lb. toddler. I carried both Nola and Piper in it and it never hurt my back, I felt completely secure and in control. I do intend to for the most part only carry Nola in it. Lets face it, Piper is a big girl...she can carry her own baby. Which brings me to this……

Amber at Beana Baby designs and sells “like mum” pouches for your little one at home who wants to be just like you! When Piper put her sling on, I could tell she felt so grown up and proud because she could carry around her baby, and I could carry around mine.

Last night, we were going to the park, I grabbed my Bean Baby sling, and she just HAD to make sure her sling was packed in the backpack too. I just really love it when you can see their minds work, pretend, and creatively play.

Beana Baby has tons more than just sling! In addition to the slings, they also have a fabulous selection of pouches, wraps, nursing covers, blankets, and my favorite….tutu’s. I’m hoping to get both my girls matching tutu’s and getting their pictures taken this summer. I can just see it now, it's going to be tutu cute, if you know what I mean!

If you have been on the fence about baby wearing and can’t decide if it’s for you, I highly suggest you read up on all the HUGE benefits of baby wearing…(it's truly is more than just another hot accessory.)

Buy it! Beana Baby slings can be purchase on their website. In addition purchasing a wonderfully handcrafted product, you will be supporting a hardworking Midwestern mom. Sounds like a win-win for me!

  6. I love slings for little ones. I want to show my kids at an early age that babywearing is a natural thing. Growing up for me it wasn't, so I'm proud to have grown beyond that, and am a proud mama kangaroo!!
