I was given the opportunity to review a doll sling from Sweet Sugar Baby. I was excited about it because my oldest daughter had just turned two and was given a doll ring sling for her birthday and LOVED carrying her dolls and stuffed animals around. So I was happy for her to be able to try out another doll sling, cuz lets face it…baby carriers are like shoes, you can never have too many!
I was able to go check out the doll slings on the Sweet Sugar Baby website and was impressed by the VAST selection of prints available for doll slings. I had a hard time choosing because there were so many cute prints but finally decided on the “carnival” print, because it had so many colors in it and will match most of my daughter’s clothes (and yes, I cared about matching. Hehe). Aside from having lots of great prints to choose from, the sling is also made out of bamboo/organic cotton, which is a bonus in my book.
When I received the doll sling, I was impressed by the quality of the sewing and the softness of the fabric. It had the adorable carnival print in the center and the long piece of fabric was a nice shade of brown. I tied it up and put it on my daughter, who immediately understood that this was her new sling and went to find a baby doll for me to put in it. It was easy to get the doll in and can be used in many different positions. Because it is just tied in the back, it will easily grow with your child and it was easy for my daughter to take off when she decided she was done with baby-wearing.
I love the Sugar Sweet Baby Doll Sling for my daughter because aside from being super cute, I know that it is also very comfortable for her to wear, which has been an issue with the doll ring sling because of the metal rings laying against her shoulder. I know that the Sugar Sweet Sling will get a lot of use from my two girls and I love that my daughter and I can baby wear together…her wearing her doll and me wearing her little sister.
