Comfy Joey Silk Ring Sling Review “Toddler Width in Seattle Silk” – Ages worn: 8 weeks; 12 lbs.
Velvety soft, with a weave that recalls snow capped peaks and majestic pine trees, and colors that are distinctly downtown; this best-selling, high-contrast sling crowned with silver SlingRings will slip right in to your wardrobe like it had always been there.
With its grippy texture and 36 inch width, our Seattle is perfect for cuddling your toddler on a hike in the woods or on a visit to your favorite barista. Seattle’s excellent diagonal stretch yields and molds to you and your child, and the Toddler-Width CJ Hybrid Shoulder provides a cushioning effect whether worn gathered or scrunched. The effort you put into threading and adjusting this sling will yield a slip-proof, rock-solid carry.
Learning Curve: This was my second babywearing experience (first was with the Boba wrap) and I went to a Saturday Meet-up. I was given one-on-one assistance on how to measure out the right length for my body and how to tighten/loosen around the rings. Once I was shown how to do it, I tried it myself and that’s all the help needed. Very easy to pick up after you’ve seen it done in person. (Shameless meeting plug – Go to a meeting; they’re super helpful!!!).
Activities: I wore my daughter around the house mostly, as we didn’t get out and about during these few weeks. Most activities consisted of snuggling, rocking, walking outside, pushing Big Brother outside in the swing, picking up around the house, etc.
Innovation: I absolutely loved how easy it is to get your babe in and out of the sling. By looking at it, I thought it was going to be struggle, but I learned it’s very easy to use for a new wearer like myself. Loved how this product was a standard size and a good fit for my plus-sized body, as well as my skinny-minny mother. No special attachments/extensions needed. That’s a plus for this plus-sized girl!
Ease of Nursing: I’m not a huge fan of nursing with it on. Not because of the wrap; it’s just my preference to be sitting down in a sturdy chair.
Safety: I felt completely comfortable with my daughter in the sling. I just ensured she was tightly tucked in around her bum, and she was good to go.
Storage: The storage is very simple. This sling doesn’t wrinkle much at all, so you can throw it in the purse/diaper bag and go.
