Balboa Baby Sling Review and Giveaway

Bunny loves to be carried and I love to carry her! With my growing belly this is getting harder to do for long periods of time. The Balboa Baby Sling allows me to carry Bunny without growing weary. 

 

 

Balboa Baby Sling is a soft, one size, adjustable baby sling. Balboa Baby Sling currently comes in thirteen different patterns/colors. Balboa Baby Sling can be adjusted from size xsmall (18″ tail) to size xlarge (6″ tail). This is great for my growing pregnant and soon to be postpartum body.
Balboa Baby Sling has a very convenient front pocket. You can put your phone, a burp rag, baby’s pacifier or favorite and more in the pocket. Balboa Baby Sling shoulder area is padded, which makes for a comfortable ride for mommy or daddy. Balboa Baby Sling is machine washable, which is great! When baby spits up on the sling, you can easily wash it in your washing machine. Balboa Baby Sling fits babies from 8 pounds up to 35 pounds. Bunny is currently around 25 pounds and still fits perfectly.

You can wear your Balboa Baby Sling with your baby in four different positions. All of these are great for smaller babies. Since I do not currently have a tiny baby, I am using a three month old size baby doll to demonstrate the carries. Once my bun in the oven is here, I will definitely update you all as to how much I love using my Balboa Baby Sling with a newborn.
The first position is the cuddle style which allows you to cuddle baby close to you.
 
 

Please keep in mind I am using a doll. Your baby’s airway should be clear at all times. Do not let your baby smash its face against your body like the doll is doing here. Make sure to wrap the outer elastic trim around your baby’s back and neck for maximum support.

The second position is the cradle style which would be great for nursing on the go!

 

The third position is the front carry style which allows baby to see the world while being close to you. 

 Again, this is a doll and the head is not in the proper position. Please make sure your baby’s head is supported. Baby’s legs can be bent and crossed or or stretched out to one side.

The fourth position is the hip carry style which is what Bunny and I use. This style is the best for toddlers. 

 

 

 

 

Bunny loves to have the sling over her shoulders, up around her neck.
Balboa Baby has a video for each carry which shows you how to properly fit the sling to you and hold your baby safely.
Sometimes Bunny likes to walk, and sometimes she likes to be carried. Balboa Baby Sling is very portable and fits easily in a diaper bag. Balboa Baby Sling is not bulky unlike some other soft structured carries. Balboa Baby Sling is easy to put on and take off.
With my growing belly I can no longer use a soft structured carried like Ergo, Lillebaby, and Tula, ones that buckle around the waist. Balboa Baby Sling allows me to carry Bunny while pregnant. Wraps are great but take too much time and effort to get Bunny in and out of. Balboa Baby Sling is simple and easy to use. When Bunny wants to run around and play or walk, I can easily and quickly get her out of my Balboa Baby Sling. When Bunny wants to be held again, I can easily and quickly, and painlessly, put her back in my Balboa Baby Sling. I did not try a sling with Bunny when she was an infant, but I can see how using a sling with a smaller baby would be beneficial.

Butterbean Simple Sunscreen Review and Giveaway

Summer is here and Bunny is outside every day. Bunny loves being outside, weather it is playing at the park, swimming, playing in the yard, as long as she can be outside, Bunny is happy. Bunny has very fair skin, as do I. I am constantly applying sunscreen to both Bunny and myself, and I need something that is safe to use. I found Butterbean Sunscreen (a safe, natural, organic, fair trade product) and could not wait to try it! 




Butterbean sunscreen is a mama owned business located in Georgia. I love US based businesses! Butterbean sunscreen is a natural, organic barrier cream that scatters and reflects UV rays. Butterbean is not a chemical sunscreen. 

Butterbean Simple Sunscreen comes in a spray bottle, but it is a not an aerosol spray sunscreen. Butterbean Simple Sunscreen comes in a stainless steel bottle with a pump sprayer. It is more of a squirt versus a spray. You do need to shake it well before you use it. It is very easy to spray it on Bunny’s body or my hand and it is easy to rub in.  Butterbean Simple Sunscreen is water resistant and has no added fragrances. Butterbean Simple Sunscreen smells amazing! The natural, organic ingredients are what makes it smell so good. 


 I like how easily Butterbean Simple Sunscreen rubs in. It leaves your skin feeling well nourished! I know both my skin and Bunny’s skin gets really dry when we use sunscreen often. With Butterbean Simple Sunscreen, our skin stays nourished. I use Butterbean Simple Sunscreen all over my body, even my face. It is gentle enough and effective enough to be used daily. I am happy to have found a wonderful, safe, effective sunscreen lotion for everyone in the family. 













Butterbean Simple Sunscreen comes in a 4 ounce bottle ($15), an 8 ounce bottle ($26) and 12 ounce refill pack ($36). You can buy Butterbean Simple Sunscreen here.



rubs in easily and smoothly!


















I am so excited to be able to give away a 4 ounce bottle of Butterbean Simple Sunscreen!
