Look Hot with Hotslings

I never "wore" my baby when he was an infant, partly because every carrier I tried was just too hard to get on by myself. Plus, none of them looked very attractive. I finally resorted to letting my husband do the carrying. Looking back, I wish I had done more research because I really do like the idea of being able to hold your baby hands-free. If I had, maybe I would have found out about Hotslings.

Hotslings is the modern alternative to bulky, awkward baby carriers. They come in a variety of styles, such as Organic, Everyday, Reversible and Designer. There is even a special collection for men! The designs are inspired by the latest fashions, so you'll look great no matter what style you choose. Hotslings' material is super soft and comfy as well. The great thing about these slings is the fact that your baby can grow with it. It accomodates three different holds as your child gets bigger - the cradle carry, the front carry and the hip carry. These are all described in detail with the helpful written instructions and DVD (included.)

Hotslings also run in sizes 1-9 to ensure a perfect fit. Whatever shape and size you are, Hotslings has you covered! View the sizing chart and fitting guide here. And the best part of all? From now through December 31st, receive a complimentary pair of BabyLegs with each Hotslings order. This promotion is good until supplies last, so check out Hotsling's awesome collection today! And if you want to know more about BabyLegs, check out my review here.

  2. I love the simplicity of Hotslings' designs! They look so easy to use! I especially like the Argyle Pink sling from the LittleHouse collection - it would be perfect for carrying my little girl around in style after she makes her debut in March.

  3. I have a weird nerve issue in my elbow that keeps me from being able to carry my daughter for more than 30 seconds without dealing with arm pain for the rest of the day. I have spent a bunch and tried other slings and carriers but never could get them situated correctly. These look so much easier. I really hope I win one.

  4. To me, the benefits of babywearing are so clear - enhanced attachment and confidence being the two biggest ones. I would love to have a really high-quality sling so I could babywear as much, and as comfortably, as I can.

  5. Even though I'm expecting my third little one, I have never had a baby carrier and would love to try baby wearing! Thank you for this great chance!

  6. This would be a great thing to have as we will have two and you start to run out of hands to contain them at some point!

  8. I have several carriers myself; to be honest, I'm not sure if I'd add this to my collection, or give it to one of my many friends who are expecting.

  9. This looks really nice and i like how it comes in different sizes, and I love all the designs! Pink Ecru Paisley and Reversible Eye Candy are my favorites. Thanks for entering me.

  10. I had one of those boring blue front-wearing ones with my son and while I love the hands-free idea, it was very bulky and made me hot and sweaty. These look much more comfortable. Thanks!

  13. I LOVE attractive slings (and baby accessories in general!) Its nice to be able to still feel like an adult sometimes!

  15. I'm in the same boat as you...when my kids were little I wasn't able to find a sling that was comfy. My first baby was born weighing a whopping 10lbs. 4 oz., so carrying her around from day one was a chore!! I would have LOVED to have known about hotslings at that time!! Now that I'm older and "wiser" (LOL), I'd love to win one of these for my sister-in-law who just returned from Ethiopia with my new little niece!! Great giveaway!!

  16. I LOVED my hotsling. I had a pink one that I used for a long time, but I stopped because I had a boy and I was getting tired of the "oh what a pretty girl" comments. I would love a new hotsling in a more gender-neutral color.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I tried making a sling from a pattern I found, but it ended up being way to small and getting baby in and out is hard. I would love one made right!

  18. I would love to win this!! Hotslings has a great, user friendly site--I would choose Pashmina Blue for my son--he's due in April!

  19. my sister is having her 2nd baby in about a month, and I would love for her to give babywearing another try. This would be a great opportunity. Thanks!

  20. Opps, Sorry i had to re-post because i forgot to add my e-mail address. veggiemcveggie@ gmail dot com
    I love baby wearing, and would love to get a hotsling to pack my wee one in. My favorite pattern is La Vie en Rose, but i also love the organic hotslings.

  21. it seems like for whatever reason every carrier we have purchased is better for daddy than for me. I want one just for me & baby! with the beautiful fabrics dad would keep his hands off :)

  22. I'm a believer in slings! I use one daily with my youngest and I wouldn't be without it. I'd love to win one for a friend who's expecting her first baby in the spring. It would make the perfect gift. Thanks!

  23. I would love to win a Sling to wear my baby girl who is due 12/15!! I am planing to continue in my daycare and active live style which includes having my baby girl right along for the ride a nice sling would be beneficial! thanks for the giveaways! hermashaw@gmail.com

  25. I just had my secong baby, and I want a to find the right sling! I never could with my daughter, and I missed out on "wearing" her! Life would be so much eaiser!

  26. I love the fact they have asst sizes for all- not one size fits all and nice selection of patterns.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I would love to have a way to carry my little girl that wont put to much strain on my hips, seeing how that is the reason why I had to leave my former job in the Marines. The Argyle Pink would match my little girls car seat so nicely. Thank you for the great chance to win.

  28. I have never seen carriers like these. They have cute designs and they look sturdy. I would love to have one.

  29. These are great. I would love one of these to carry my godson around.

  30. I know I want to carry my baby in a sling, but so many of the carrier designs look so complicated -- I'm afraid I'd never feel secure that I'd put them on correctly. The hotslings look both easy to use and fashionable! PabaV at aol dot com

  31. I like the Hotslings in the Raj Plaid - very eyecatching.

  32. I know someone who has a child that is just over a year and is pregnant with twins I think this would be very handy for her.

  33. Would love a sling. I hate seeing babies in those car seat/carriers. Babies belong next to their mommies.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I am impressed with the size range. My little sister is expecting her first child in August, and prior to pregnancy was a large chested woman ~ she could benefit from a size 8 I believe. It is rare to find things that are pregnancy related, mom related, etc that fit larger women. I also like that the designs aren't all pastel, the patterns are very trendy.

  35. I really like the idea of being able to hold your baby close to you comfortably instead of relying on a stroller all the time. It makes it easier and it is just nicer (you can talk to your baby without having to look over the sunshield of the stroller).

  36. The Hotsling as a fashion statement is a nice touch... but on their website they have nursing covers made in the same pretty material. How ugly are most nursing covers, and blankets just fall off or get pulled off! That is a nice product, and you can coordinate with the sling!

    ReplyDelete
  37. It's interesting to see these in use. My gut reaction is that they're not safe and the baby can just slip out. I guess papooses were used in this land long before our safety ratings.

  38. I would love to win this for my girlfriends daughter who's expecting in the spring...I wish I had one of these years ago!

  39. I think this is really perfect for my mom who recently had a baby. I really hope I can win this.
    Great Giveaway!

  41. I love that the sling goes up to a high weight. My son really is happiest being carried and he's outgrown our Baby Bjorn. He's killing my arm and he's only nine months. This would be so wonderful! Thanks for the chance!

  42. My baby daughter just loves to be held. This would allow me to do other things around the house while "holding" the baby.

  43. I'm going to be a Mommy soon so I've been doing a lot of research into all of this stuff and I've been reading about how baby wearing is SUCH a great thing for both the baby and the Mama. It's definitely something I think I can do, and with all of these great slings out there it'll be so much easier then it was just a few years ago!

  44. It would be hard to go wrong with the size because this is one of the rare slings that's made in so many sizes! I think the directions are extremely helpful too.

  45. I love the design of your blog and you always provide great content. I am about to have my first child March 1st, so this sling would come in handy. Please count me in and thanks for the contest!

  46. I have been looking at different slings/carriers for awhile now and this one looks easy to use. Plus the variety of patterns and colors is great.

  47. I really like the Hotslings designs, the sling I had when my kids were infants had about 6 yards of material that had to be swathed around in a certain pattern and whew it was crazy to try to get the baby in it by yourself.

    ReplyDelete
  48. my baby is due any time now and I have a sling already but it is complicated and I need an instructional video to figure it out, maybe this one will be a better fit for us!

  49. I, too, wish I had known about the great carriers with my oldest 3 children. All the carriers I tried were awful and hurt my back. I would love to win this one for my (hopefully) soon to be adopted daughter! Thank you for the chance.

  50. I'm about ready to have our second baby- and I'm very interested in a sling for her- I love love holding my babies, but with this next one, I have a feeling I'll have to be doing other things- so I need a good multitasking help. this would be awesome

  55. I would love to start wearing my baby. She's 13 months and I carry her EVERYWHERE! I never got around to ordering a sling and thought it was probably too late. But after looking at the Hotslings site I think I could still use it. It would be great to win!

  56. My baby is 8 months old and getting too big for his carrier. I would love to have this sling. I want to carry him for much longer! Thank you

  57. Hotslings offer some of the prettiest prints. I am so glad I ran across your blog. This is a great giveaway and I love some of your posts. Thank you!

  58. I appreciate you running this drawing. My sister is having her first baby, and is unable to fit my own sling... I would love for her to have one. Wearing my children has been a blessing.

  61. I love wearing my baby. He is such a happy confident calm little guy. He is about 20 lbs and 9 months old. Babywearing is a life saver. I have been wanting a Hotsling since I was preggers but couldn't get one. It would be great to have one for Christmas.

  63. I think it's so marvelous to have a well-designed and extremely attractive wrap to wear your baby. It's healthy for mom (or dad or grandma) and especially good for baby. The Black Ecru Floral sling is my favorite.

  64. These sure would come in handy on shopping trips and for walks. vidomich(at)yahoo(dot)com
