Oh happy day!



I have been researching and studying and comparing and shopping for a baby sling. I had decided on the Hotsling brand. The pricing looks something like this

Local baby boutique: $59.00
Hotsling website: $48.00 (plus shipping)
Ebay: $45.00 (free shipping)
Target.com: $39.99 (plus shipping)

I cannot begin explain how happy I was to find my size sling in the above neutral pattern on a clearance shelf in Target for $9.99 this morning! I guess someone ordered it through Target.com, then returned it to the store. It is in perfect condition.

Now is the part where I annoy Brad by asking how I should spend the $30.00 or so that I "saved" by finding this.
It is also the part where I annoy myself by noticing how tiny that model is carrying an infant in the picture above.

This has to be the best day of your life! I would be jealous but I have a new friend lending us her moses basket and stand, Baby Bjorn and infant car seat. Can't wait to hear all about the success of the Hotsling and your glowing recommendation. You should use the savings to buy the bib Camille suggested.

ok that is funny you noticed the model...I noticed it too but it was her perky bo**s I noticed thinking that is really not her baby.

I'm impressed! If you ever want to move past pouches - I have managed to spend WAY too much money in baby carriers (mei tai, soft structured, ring sling, etc)!

Hi Kendra! I may be bugging you for advice then. I am starting out with this Hotsling and a homemade Moby wrap, but may want to try more. They are quite an investment!!
