Welcome to "Babywearing . . . naturally," part of our line of natural fiber baby carriers. We love using silks, linen, and tencel! These fabrics are ideal for baby carriers because of their strength, breathability, and classy good looks! These make GREAT GIFTS for anyone with or expecting a little one. Included DVD makes this gift ideal for even newbies to babywearing!
How many people have you seen lugging a car seat on an aching arm or battling to maneuver a stroller. Babywearing eliminates so many of these hassles.
Linen is one of the best choices for babywearing. Unlike a plain weave (non twill) quilting weight cotton, which will easily rip if once it gets a little tear, linen is a strong natural fiber.
One of the wonderful properties of linen is breathability, making it ideal for year-round use in any climate. Linen also softens with washing. Machine wash delicate cool and either tumble dry low or hang to dry. And talk about versatile! The solid colors are beautiful in the simplicity of this natural fiber with its inherent texture. Besides, all mothers of little ones should have a solid basic sling that will match anything. Why not have one with beautiful decorative stitching in a contrasting thread - to add a little spice to it =)
The rings used are non-welded brushed aluminum rings from SlingRings.com. These rings have been manufactured using strict guidelines and testing procedures. The sling is re-inforced and reinforced with stitching by the rings - again decorative stitching is used to create a sling that is both functional and beautiful! Sling width is almost 28 inch. Length @78 inches.
A DVD will show you step-by-step how to position your baby in several different basic carry holds. This sling is practical for infant through 35 pounds. This makes a practical gift for any baby shower. Ring Slings are not size-sensitive like pouch slings, adding to their practicality as a gift.

ABOUT LI'L PEEPER KEEPER CARRIERS: Great care has been taken to make sure that these carriers are sewn with quality and safety in mind. Pouches are sewn with a reinforced seam, known as a French seam, to shape the carrier. Ring sling fabrics are chosen with care as to style and strength, and each sling is carefully reinforced at the rings.
Babywearing is both a joy and a responsibility. Although Babywearing is simple, it will take practice and precations, just like anything else. Don’t expect you or your baby to “sling like a pro” the very first time. Keep at it – it’s worth the effort!
Some precautions to take while wearing your baby:
1. Always check the carrier first for signs of wear or any rips. Don’t use if damaged.
2. Practice holds with a stuffed animal before trying them on your baby.
3. Use common sense while wearing – i.e. do not bend from waist. Don’t use around the water, while cooking, showering, or other potentially hazardous activities.
4. Always make sure your baby has sufficient airflow.
5. Remove baby from sling before placing in bed.
6. While making adjustments, always make sure the baby’s weight is supported.
7. If a child is fighting against going into the sling, wait until he is calm and try again.
8. If a child is fussing after being placed in the sling, talk to him, pat back, move around, just as you would normally do to soothe a child.
9. Follow safety guidelines: you use at your own risk, accepting the responsibility for the safety of your child.
