QB Baby Carrier of the Week: Spotlight on Hotslings AP

4 Jun

This week, the QuirkyBaby blog kicks off a series on great baby slings and baby carriers and the women entrepreneurs behind them. My first guest is Kristen DeRocha, founder of Hotslings, mama of two, and a rockin’ musician, too! Kristen is the creative genius behind the innovative Hotslings AP adjustable pouch,  which has taken the pouch sling design to a new level of comfort and ease of use, all while maintaining the trademark Hotslings style with gorgeous fabrics.

Why QuirkyBaby loves the Hotslings AP adjustable pouch:

  • No more sizes! One adjustable size fits most people from 5’0″ to 6’1″ and from 110 to 220 pounds.
  • Easy to adjust for perfect positioning.
  • Compact, lightweight, and simple to use
  • And did I mention the stylish fabrics??

Review of New Hotslings AP Adjustable Pouch Sling

4 Oct

I just got the chance to try these out today and they. are. AWESOME.  I haven’t been able to get my almost 2-year-old, 29 pound daughter into a pouch comfortably in ages, but this was the perfect combo of the simplicity of the pouch and the adjustability of a ring sling.

Although the directions say to do all the adjusting with baby out of the pouch, I popped dd in with the pouch a little on the loose side so I could squeeze her long and chubby legs through, then held her weight up off the carrier and snugged the adjuster straps up. (Pouch was sitting on my right shoulder so adjuster tabs were in front). The pouch spread nice and flat across my back and cupped my shoulder really well. Because it’s sewn together at the shoulder, a shoulder flip isn’t possible — but given the adjustability, it also isn’t necessary.

Having padding on both sides is really nice — no need to flip the carrier other way out if you’re going to switch shoulders! It also made it snug and cozy for my dd.

I think the adjustability factor will also help the issue some people have of needing to lower baby to nurse but lift baby higher for carrying, which can be challenging in a non-adjustable pouch.

I have rediscovered the pouch love!
