Best Baby Slings

If you love the idea of snuggling up to your baby, or just keeping your hands free to grab a sprinting toddler or do jobs then a baby sling could be for you.

Slings are different from baby carriers, they tend to have buckles and more structure. 

Slings are softer and you can usually use them from day one. It’s really, really, really important that you read the instructions carefully and only use products designed for your baby’s weight. It’s a lovely way to be close to your baby but safety comes first, follow the TICKS guidelines

You’ve got to find the sling that works for you but we know other mums often come up trumps with recommendations. So we asked our 70,000 + strong community for their top picks.
