Balboa baby

My daughter is in a phase where she can't be put down for a second. This makes doing anything difficult so I finally broke down and bought a baby sling. I was completely against these at first because they first of all look like you are squishing and suffocating your child and secondly I was sure I would have to buy tons of them so that they would match all my outfits.

Well after doing research and actually looking at them I decided on the Balboa Baby adjustable sling. The other choice was a Moby sling I think and that one looked like a huge ace bandage wrap and way too much work. The Balboa just slides over your head and baby pops right in, kinda like a kangaroo. Man they really have something with that...

Anyways, I LOVE IT!! It's soooo comfortable and there are so many different positions for baby to be in to make it comfortable for them. Plus my hands are free for doing everything I need to get done.

Yea, it was a good chunk of change but so far totally worth it. And I only bought one style. Who would have known after becoming a mom and wiping poo and spit up on my clothes daily that matching would not matter? ha.

Oh, and the diaper geniie. AMAZING.

That's all for now. We are headed to the in laws to have lunch and do a photo shoot of Abigail.

Have a great Sunday!


  1. I've always loved babyslings, and was excited to have a 20% off coupon to buy my Balboa sling for this baby....unfortunately I have gained so much weight, by the time I put it on there is literally no room left for baby. I wish they made a bigger size! If I can lose at least 50 lbs I will go ask my neighbor to GIVE IT BACK, but for now my sling is on loan to her indefinitely. Her baby LOVES it. :)
    My other boys (now 16 and 11 years old) both used the sling until they were at least 2 years old - in the hip-sitting position, of course.

  2. Aww can't wait to see the pictures!
