Great new sling thing January 11, 2005 10:25 PM

I bought this new Hipster for my son because I am petite and he is large and very for me to carry. I tried the old fashioned sling but my shoulder would go numb. So I get this thing and find it rocks. It is great for multi users and is easy to change size. I just thought I would let anyone who has this carrying problem like mine know there is a product out there for you. UL&T Vertonia  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

I used a sling for Marley a couple of times. They're nice but not for long periods of time!  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

My sister in law is a very small girl, and has a large baby, and a toddler She uses a (forgive any misspellings) Mojave Wrap and absolutely loves it  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

I would like to know more about this sling you bought?  How much $$ did it cost?  Was it U.S. dollars or? 

I would love to find a GREAT sling, as I use my snugli a lot (Jolly Jumper brand), but sometimes wish I had a sling to use for breastfeeding and such.  Any info would be great. 

I got some great info on this site a while ago, and a great website on how to make your own sling, but I haven't sone it yet...LOL

But anyhow, I'd like to know more about yours.  Thanks!

This thing I have is called the hip hammock by platex if I recall. It cost under $40 Im sure. I LOVE it. I have put this thing to the test! Me and my much taller boyfriend use it. It is easy to adjust size from lil me, 5'4" 108lbs to him 6'1 200lbs. I have worn it hiking in rough woods and my son nursed great in it and slept fine in it too. It wraps around your waist and around one shoulder diagonally.  It is comfortable as they can be and requires only one hand to support the baby. Here is a link to see it. I hope this helps!
