Enter BabyBjorn's new organic line. I was thrilled when the baby experts there offered to send me my very own (it comes in this beautiful Walnut!) - and now after testing it (I literally walked around the house for 30 minutes with this thing on when my MIL showed up and had to laugh), I can't believe how much easier it is to assemble (and how much better it feels on my body) than the last sling I tried. And it's something D. doesn't mind wearing at all.
Rather than the Original, we chose the Active ($139.95) (we are having a boy, after all!). It has the added lumbar support and can be used for little tots up to 26 pounds (feels like he's halfway there now, whew). And I can rest easy knowing that we're helping the Earth just a little bit more by choosing organic cotton free of toxic pesticides and fertilizers. And I think baby C.'s worth that, too - don't you?
