What is a Pretty Momma Sling?
A Pretty Momma Sling is a type of baby carrier that is 100% adjustable, which will allow you to share the same carrier with your husband, mother, etc. A Pretty Momma Sling has a special kind of shoulder design (fanned or sometimes called gathered) that allows the fabric to spread evenly across your shoulder, and thereby distributing your baby`s weight evenly and comfortably.
Pretty Momma Slings are not just stitched once by the rings, but rather triple stitched for durability and long-term use. Your baby can face you, face outward, sit on your hip, on your back or in a cradle/nursing hold. Your Pretty Momma Sling will arrive to you with detailed wearing instructions.

*********************************************************** Why should I use a Pretty Momma Sling?
There are so many reasons why slings are useful. The obvious being that you can carry baby with you, easily. We have done several years worth of research to find out why slings are beneficial to both mom (or dad, grandma, etc.) and to baby. Here are a few reasons:

1 - It is truly a hands-free way to carry baby. You can carry baby securely against you while doing the laundry, writing at your desk, or simply just walking!
2 - Promotes a healthy bond between you and baby.
3 - Promotes breastfeeding. You can very easily nurse baby discreetly while baby is in the sling.
4 - It is very easy to use. Just slip the sling over your head and rest on your shoulder. Put baby in between you and the sling, then just pull the fabric through the buckles to tighten and you`re done!
5 - Great for dads, grandparents, and all other caretakers of baby.
6 - Baby will feel very secure and safe next to you, hearing your comforting heartbeat, just as baby did for the months she/he was inside of you.
7 - Great for colicky/fussy babies. This sling promotes sleep. Most newborns fall asleep within ten minutes in the sling.
8 - You can take a sleeping baby out of the sling without waking him/her.
9 - Some front-style commercial carriers sold in stores, can be stressful to a newborn`s spine. Slings have been tried and tested in most other countries for centuries, and cradles the baby`s back in the correct position.

*********************************************************** What ways can I use my Pretty Momma Sling?
You will get many uses from your Pretty Momma Sling. Some ways to use your new sling are:
1 – Snuggle Hold – Baby is tummy-to-tummy with you.
2 – Nursing Hold/Cradle Hold – Baby is perpendicular to your tummy.
3 – Hip Hold – Baby straddles you hip.
4 – Kangaroo Hold – Baby’s back is to your tummy.
5 – Piggy Back Hold – Baby’s tummy is up against your back.
6 – A shopping cart harness – Put the child in the seat of the shopping cart, put the sling around their tummy and through the slots of the shopping cart and tie.
7 – Drool rag – The tail of the sling can be used as a drool cloth.
8 – Wind/sun shield – The tail of the sling can be used to cover baby’s upper and lower body.

*********************************************************** What are the specifics of your slings?
Only the highest quality organic cotton, organic hemp, cotton and batik fabrics will be used. Our rings that we use are specifically designed for baby slings and are tested for durability and strength.
1 – These slings are unpadded which will provide you with the utmost of adjustability and comfort.
2 – Very lightweight.
3 – Not at all bulky – can be put in your diaper bag, or easily will fit under you coat.
4 – You can adjust the top and bottom part separately, which makes for a very secure fit.
5 – Can be used for babies from birth to 3 years old (35 lbs).
6 – Rings can withstand several hundred pounds of pressure and lock into place, much like a seat belt buckle.
7 – Baby’s weight is carried over your hip and shoulder. Unlike front packs and backpacks, these slings will not stress out your lower back.
8 – There are no rough corners to chafe your child or you.
9 – Easy to put on and take off. With a little practice, you can put on a sling in a few seconds, literally!
10 – This is the only carrier you will ever need because it accommodates your childs growth.
11 - Made so that it is very easy to nurse your baby in public, with no one able to see ANYTHING!

*********************************************************** How safe are our rings?
Well, here is what the manufacturer of the aluminum rings have to say about their testing procedure:
"Each of our rings is individually pull tested to 250 pounds. We perform additional testing on every 100th ring, impact testing to failure; this helps us ensure the integrity of our basic material stock.
Our rings are polished to avoid burrs and sharp edges.
Our rings are RoHS compliant and manufactured to be free of heavy metals. We have had testing done here and in the EU to verify this."

Can I send in my picture for the Sling Gallery?
We would be honored to display your picture of a Pretty Momma Sling in our Sling Gallery. Please send us an email with your sling pictures(s) attached (in .jpg format only), along with your written consent that you would like this picture(s) to be included in our Sling Gallery. If your picture is approved, it will be visible on our website within 24 hours.

Your personal information will never be shared.

*********************************************************** How do I wash my sling?
It is recommended that you machine wash your sling(s) in cold water and hang to dry. However, to soften up your sling you may wash and then dry in the dryer with fabric softener. You may iron your sling if needed.

*********************************************************** What is my sling size?
Slings come in 3 sizes and these sizes only affect how long the sling will be (the width does not change with the sizes):

* Small (approx. 1 yard and 30 inches)
Great for people who are 5 feet, 1 inch or shorter and weight 110 pounds or less

* Medium (approx. 2 yards and 3 inches)
Perfect for the majority of people

* Large (approx. 2 yards and 12 inches)
Great for large/plus size people who are nursing

SIZING RECOMMENDATIONS: If you are a small size and will be using the sling to nurse your baby in or using the tail as a shield, then a medium size may be more accommodating. The medium size will fit most people, as well as breastfeeding mom's. The large size will fit you if you are a large/plus-sized person AND breastfeeding (or need a shield from the wind/sun).
COMPARE: If you are 5 feet 3 inches, weigh 160 lbs and are a 'C' cup, a small will reach your hips, medium will reach your mid-thigh and the large will reach your knees.

CUSTOM SIZING: If you are unsure of your size or would just rather have a custom fitted sling, please take a tape measure and hold it on one shoulder, bring it down across your front to your opposite hip, up your back and to the place you first started with on your shoulder. Then bring your tape measure down to where you would like your sling to end. If you are not breastfeeding (or will not use the tail for any other reason) then we would recommend you measure to your hip. If you are breastfeeding (or will be using the tail for any other reason) then we recommend the tail come to your mid-thigh or lower. Please let us know this number in inches.
