UpMama Hybrid Sling

04/06/2009 at 10:00 AM ET

Is it a pouch? Is it a ring sling? No, it’s both! And it comes with all the benefits of each. How cool is that? The UpMama Hybrid sling ($84CAD) has combined the best features of pouches and ring slings and eliminated some of the common problems of both to make a super-easy and super-comfortable carrier. The UpMama Hybrid has the simplicity of a pouch, but it’s adjustable like a ring sling, which means post-partum weight loss won’t get in the way of carrier comfort and, more often than not, two parents can share one sling. I think it’s a perfect introduction to babywearing. It’s made of a cotton sateen with a touch of stretch and also has a zippered pocket in a complementary fabric at the end of the tail. This carrier (I have the Raspberry Red one) gets admired from near and far whenever my daughter and I take it out on the town. UpMama is also an exclusive online retailer (with free shipping!) for an amazing Canadian babywearing 3-in-1 coat: the down-filled M-Coat has a removable panel that will help take you from pregnancy to babywearing and beyond.
