Hotslings Review & {GIVEAWAY!! CLOSED

As a huge fan a baby wearing, I am so excited for this giveaway! I love having my baby close to me, but need to be able to function hands-free as well. With the first two, I spent all my baby carrying days with an awkward, bulky carrier harnessed to me that honestly caused me more back pain then it was probably worth. After discovering Hotslings, the original designer pouch-style baby carrier, I can now do both with comfort and style.
From their website: Hotslings is committed to the bond between parent and child. Our slings are uniquely designed to enhance the benefits of attachment parenting, breastfeeding and swaddling. Experts agree that babies nestled close to the body develop a more secure relationship with themselves and the world around them.
I will admit, I was a little nervous about the safety and fit of a sling. Could baby fall out? Will the pouch be too tight or too loose to wear through the chaos of daily life? Hotslings readily took care of all my fears. First, Hotslings come in 9 different sizes- ensuring a perfect and most comfortable fit. This is one of my favorite parts of the sling. Also, because it is fitted, there are no awkward rings or excess bulky material to figure out. You just put the sling on and you're fashionably and comfortably set! Each sling also comes with an instruction booklet and instructional DVD, providing answers to all my safety concerns and leaving me a confident, pouch-wearing, proud mommy.

Hotslings come in a huge variety of designs, guaranteeing each one of us our own perfect sling. From organic to designer to men's, you will find the Hotsling of your baby-wearing dreams. I was lucky enough to review the Pashmina Pink from the Little House Collection. It is gorgeous. And perfect. And far beyond any level of comfort I thought possible when it came to baby-wearing.
While visiting Hotslings, don't forget to checkout the coordinating nursing covers. Because nursing should be just as fashionable as baby-wearing.
