Frequently Asked Questions about Baba Slings:
Q: So the Baba Sling can be used in 7 different positions...can you show them to me?
A: Sure, just click the video screenshot above to view videos demonstrating each position.
Q: Can I breast-feed while wearing the Baba Sling?
A: Absolutely, breast-feeding is so natural and simple in the Baba Sling.
Q: How long can I use my Baba Sling for?
A: From premature babies up to 2 years + (commonly up to 4 years).
Q: Can people with back problems use a Baba Sling?
A: Yes! However, depending on the seriousness of the problem you may wish to consult with your doctor.
The beauty with the Baba Sling is that as you can easily alternate between several positions. Changing positions is essential while carrying baby, as it will redistribute the weight of your child to different areas of your body. This will avoid unnecessary stress on any one point for extended periods.
We also suggest you alternate shoulders regularly, especially if you are prone to back problems. As your baby grows and is going through “needy” periods of constantly wanting to be held, the Baba Sling can actually help save your back. Using the Hipstar will remove the necessity to have your hip awkwardly jutting out and allows you to stand straight (not to mention be hands free!).
The Baba Sling has a unique double adjustable strapping system, which allows you to bring baby's weight into your centre of gravity. Again this will minimize stress to your back. The trick is to have the upper strap pulled nice and tight. A good way to tell if the upper strap is too loose is if you feel it necessary to constantly support baby with your hands; probably you need to tighten the upper strap a little.
Q: I have a heavy toddler can I use the Baba Sling?
A: Yes. Be sure to change shoulders periodically. A good tip is to slide the shoulder padding off your shoulder and onto the upper arm. Have the Baba Sling adjusted as tightly as possible so that baby's weight isn't pulling you forward. Carrying in the Hipstar and the Piggyback positions are generally best with toddlers.
Q: What is the difference between upright carriers and slings?
A: Imagine yourself...Hanging in a parachute harness for hours each day with your entire weight held between your legs…
Imagine yourself being cradled in a very comfortable and soft hammock where your entire weight is totally supported.
This is the difference between the upright carriers and the Baba Sling.
Q: Does the Baba sling put any pressure on my baby’s spine?
A: Spinal care is vital in early months and years to ensure the correct development of baby's skeletal structure. Many health care practitioners such as osteopaths and chiropractors consider the hammock style of the Baba Sling to be ideal for healthy spinal development in infancy.
Unlike upright carriers the Baba Sling puts no unnatural pressure on babies’ soft and undeveloped hips and spine. It is specifically designed to support baby’s entire weight comfortably and evenly.
When baby is in an upright position in the Baba Sling you may notice that their weight is not held between the legs but rather is supported by the hammock of the Baba Sling, which encircles their entire bottom right up to their knees.
Greater Connection between you and your Baby
When using your Baba Sling, you will notice that there is no barrier between baby and yourself. It is very similar to the popular skin to skin contact of “Kangaroo Care”, which is a form of care that is employed for premature babies. Many Upright carriers do not allow for this intimacy.
Q: What is the Baba Slings made of?
A: The Hammock is 100% cotton drill – durable, breathable and strong yet not too thick. For your comfort the Baba Sling is designed with foam shoulder padding. The railings also have ample foam padding for baby’s comfort and protection. There is a large buckle and a smaller safety buckle (with nylon webbing). These are made from tough and durable acetyl.
Q: Will the fabric fade?
A: Being 100% cotton, naturally the fabric will fade a little over time. The fabric is color fast so the fading should be quite minimal.
Q: I have a Baba Sling and I am wondering which is the best position to carry my newborn baby?
A: There are 3 positions that are ideal for newborns. Hammock Style is perfect for sleeping and breastfeeding. Upright is ideal for shorter periods of time and is helpful for relieving colic and bringing up wind after feeding. Easy Rider helps baby to see their world and allows for discreet breastfeeding.
Q: What is the best position to carry a 1-year old?
A: The Hammock Style, Upright, Hipstar and Piggyback positions are the most popular at this age. Please refer to the instructions included with your Baba Sling and note the age guide mentioned for each of the 7 positions.
Q: My baby fusses when I put him in the Baba Sling, do you have any tips?
A: Practice with a doll or teddy first so you are completely confident in what you are doing. Babies are very sensitive to what their parents are feeling. In the initial stages it may be helpful to use the Baba Sling when you are feeling calm. Go with baby for a walk, do the little parent “Jig” or feed them in the Baba Sling. This will usually pacify them.
Alternatively, try different positions; some babies don't like having their faces covered or their legs inside the hammock. Try exposing their head, arms and feet. Have confidence! Thousands of families have greatly benefited from using the Baba Sling. So do persist.
Q: Can I use the Baba Sling with my twins?
A: Yes, when they are newborn you can carry both of them in the same sling! Imagine it must be comforting for them to feel that same closeness they shared while in the womb together. As they grow you can use a separate sling for each baby.
Q: Does it take long to take the Baba Sling on and off?
A: Not at all!! The beauty of the Baba Sling is that it is very simple to take on and off! The first couple of times you use it you may have to experiment a little with adjusting the straps. Once that is clearly understood it literally takes a matter of seconds.
Q: Can I put the Baba Sling on without needing assistance?
A: Absolutely! Once you get the hang of it you can easily shift from one position to the next. We do suggest you ask for help though until you are totally confident. Especially when using back positions.
Q: Is it machine washable?
A: Yes. We suggest you use a gentle cycle, and make sure that the buckles are both clicked up.
Do not tumble dry, as it may damage the buckles.
Q: My partner is a bigger man; will the Baba Sling fit him?
A: As the Baba Sling is adjustable; it fits most people, large or petite. However we can arrange an extra-large or extra-petite size for you. Extra-large, costs an extra $10.
Below are some testimonials from happy customers who have purchased a Baba Sling:
Thank you for my wonderful Baba Sling!
It really makes my life so much easier and my baby Ana is so calm lying in it.
I introduced my friend Keren and her baby boy to the sling. Within five minutes of carrying her baby Morgan in my Baba Sling she was on the Internet ordering one too!
I've had so many people on the street asking me about the Baba Sling. I wear it everywhere. I even climbed a mountain in Italy with Ana in it!

Just wanted to let you know that I have used your Baba Sling for the past four years with my three babes.
My daughter needed to have surgery three times before she was one and for each surgery I rocked her to sleep in the sling close to me and then she was given the anesthetic while she was snug. In the post op recovery she spent hours on me healing.
Thank you for the comfort and closeness that your slings have brought us.
We are really impressed with our purchase and found it to be a huge advantage waiting in the long lines at the airports, which was the main reason we purchased the Baba Sling in the first place, for our recent holiday. Ducking into the shop with the 3yo and 7yo in tow, the Baba Sling is a real advantage saving time not having to assemble the pram and still leaving a pair of hands to carry other necessities. A really simple to use accessory and so versatile as it can be utilised in so many ways for so much longer than the complicated upright baby carriers. AND so much better for the development of the babies spine, and a concept that has been used for centuries for those working women in the villages.
Great concept, well done and thank you.
