DDM HGG - Sugar Sweet Baby Doll Sling Review and Giveaway

By Jennifer (Double Duty Mommy) at 2:50 PM
Babywearing has become a new love of mine. I didn't do it with Makenna, I tried, it failed. I now know that I just had the wrong kind of sling.
I have countless wraps for Kendall but my favorite BY FAR is my Sugar Sweet Baby wrap. If you wear your baby you have had to hear about these wraps... and if not then you're definitely missing out!
I bought a few months ago and we barely take it off. Some nights you could probably even find me sleeping in it (just kidding... maybe! lol).

Lara is a work at home mom of a 5 year old boy and 2 year old little girl, she is also expecting baby #3 in February 2011.
She makes the softest wraps to wear your baby in. What makes her wraps so special? Well she uses a blend of 70% Bamboo & 30% Cotton. Lara uses the Bamboo blend because it is much softer, stronger and lighter then the 100% Organic Cotton.

Unfortunatly I'm not really here to talk about her regular baby wraps... 'cause I could go on for forever about them.

One thing I always hear from Makenna is how she wants to take care of Sister with me. She holds her babys around the house all the time, changing them when I have to change Kendall's diaper, putting them in their little car seat when Kendall is in her's, etc. The one thing Makenna hasn't been able to do is wear her dolls... untill now!

Lara has introduced a whole new line of doll slings. What I think is the perfect holiday gift for any little girl who loves her dolls.
Just like the normal wraps for adults, the dolls slings are made with the Bamboo/Organic Cotton mix (unless noted.

Lara sent us the pink zebra sling for Makenna to review. It was perfect timing too because her 6th birthday was just days away!
She opened her present and once I explained to her what it was she blurted out, "yay, now I'm like you Mommy!" I think she's pretty much worned her babies around every day since the her birthday (November 19th).
I feel crazy for saying this but it was actually a little hard to figure out when I tried to put it around Makenna. It took me a few tries but now we can wrap Makenna and her dolls up in just moments. It's extremely easy to take off, the child can simply pull the wrap above her head. To get the perfect fit or adjust the sling you simply pull some shoulder material down and over the other material (pictured below)

A huge plus, there is no wrong way to sling the doll! Your child can wear them Hip style, forward facing, "newborn", or facing in. We've pretty much tried all of the ways but according to Makenna her babys love the facing out position so they can look around. :)


Lara's slings are on sale from $15-$18! A GREAT price for this adorable holiday gift!

One DDM reader will win a doll sling in the pattern of their choice!
