The sizing was just as described, my son loves "hanging out" with me in this sling.

Arrived this week and even though we have still nearly 2 months left until baby girl is here, the fabric feels soft and the overall piece looks simple yet functional - just what I wanted! Can't wait to wear it with her :) Thank you, Beth! And a Happy New Year!
Hi, thanks for visiting my shop!! I am a mother of three, 2 little girls and a baby boy. I have been sewing since I was a teen and have made things from prom dresses to baby doll clothes. I have a fabric obsession and I'm always looking for new fabric patterns and prints for my Slingpeas.
My Slingpea story began just after my first baby was born in January of 2008. At the time I lived in Houston, TX and for anyone who has been there you know it's hot and humid, almost year-round. I tried all the different types of carriers and found that the padding in some made me and my baby very hot, the yards of fabric in others made it bulky and not practical when on the go, and the snaps and buckles in many were so confusing. My sister told me about a pouch style carrier that she had and so I started experimenting and finally came up with the perfect pouch for me. I have created the ideal mix of comfort, practicality and style in my Slingpea pouch. I make my Slingpeas from fresh sateen fabric with a tiny bit of stretch. I made slings for friends and family for about a year before my brother suggested that he build me a website. After my website was constructed I started making sales to all parts of the country. It was, and still is so exciting! :) My friend told me about Etsy, so I joined in 2009 and have been busy ever since! It makes me happy to be able to provide baby wearing comfort to moms and dads everywhere. Thank you for your interest!

Additional policies and FAQs
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
*How will I know that my sling fits properly?
When your baby is in the sling, it should hang at or just below your belly button. It should feel comfortable to you and your baby. The sling fabric should be stretched over your shoulder and should not be pulling on your neck.
*Will I need to buy a bigger sling when my baby gets bigger?
No, the size of the sling is meant to fit you. As your baby grows the position of him/her changes, not the size of the sling. You would only need to purchase a different size sling if your weight changed dramatically.
*How safe is it to use a sling?
If your baby is properly positioned in the pouch of the sling, he or she is safe and secure. Double check to make sure your baby is secured properly in the sling before letting the sling totally support your baby. Please read all wearing instructions before placing your baby in the sling. Wearing instructions can be found in the booklet that came packaged with your sling and on our website www.slingpea.com.
*How do I care for my Slingpea?
All of our slings are machine washable in cold water. We recommend that you lay your sling flat to dry to keep it looking new and to ensure that it does not shrink.
*How do I know how to use different carrying positions?
All the carrying positions are pictured on our website www.slingpea.com/wear.html and a wearing instructions booklet comes packaged with the sling.
*I want to buy a Slingpea for my friend, how will I know what size to get her?
If you want to keep your gift a surprise then you can purchase her a Slingpea Gift Card. If you’d like to give her the sling at her baby shower then we suggest you or someone else measure her for her size. Make sure to read the measuring instructions found on the sizing chart on our website www.slingpea.com/sizing.html.
