Wednesday Giveaway from Hotslings!

I'm very excited to announce that Hotslings is sponsoring the first 30girl giveaway starting today!  Hopefully, this wonderful giveaway will be the first of many here on the30girl.  

Among the myriad of sling and baby carrier options, Hotslings slings are the perfect option.
-easy to use-
Simple, clear instructions included with your sling explain the cradle, front and hip carry and simple video instructions are located on the Hotslings website.
-fun, stylish patterns-
Numerous options in all varieties of prints and colors to suit your style and highlight your adorable baby! 
-close comfort for baby-
Hotslings keep your baby close and snuggled as they mimic a swaddle in the cradle carry.  Using the front and hip carry, the leg/back padding provides extra comfort for your little one. 
-comfort and options for mom-
The wide shoulder band provides support and balances the baby-weight across your back and shoulder, rather than focusing the weight on spot.  Hotslings provide independence by keeping your hands-free allowing you to hold your baby while shopping, cleaning, and playing with your other kiddos. You can also use the sling as a privacy barrier while nursing your baby in public.  It folds up very compactly, making it perfect for stashing in your diaper bag or even your diaper clutch.
-infant to toddler-proof-
You can use your sling from Day 1 until your kiddo doesn't fit anymore and can climb out!
I used my sling at least once a day from birth until 14 months; you could even use it longer depending on the temperament and size of your kiddo.  
-comments from a trusted friend and mother of two-
"Well, my slings have always been quite helpful in freeing my hands to do much needed things around the house, but allowing me to keep my baby close and snugly. With fussy babies who require a lot of additional work to put down for naps, I found the sling to be quite helpful in eliminating this when out and about at functions, particularly in the evening hours, when you would normally put the baby to bed (like a baseball game). Also, slings are often imperative during the “witching hours” between 4-7 pm, which coincide with the need to make dinner. The sling, particularly Hotsling, have such a basic design, that daddy can be comfortable using as well."

The Giveaway
Hotslings is generously giving away one of their Hotslings AP adjustable slings, which fits size 2-5 on their standard sizing chart.  This sling is an excellent option because it will fit you right after the baby and as you loose the baby weight! Plus, it can be adjusted to fit Dad, Grandma and anyone else!


Also, Hotslings is giving away one of their awesome MilkDaze tanks that acts as a nursing bra, camisole and "muffin top" concealer.  I don't know about you, but I'm thinking I will want several of these for my next kiddo!

I like the La Vie En Rose Pattern

Elizabeth said...

If it has to be an AP Pattern, I like the Adjustable Tokyo, otherwise, I like Sweet Pea :)

Elizabeth said...

I want/need a sling because I am expecting baby #2 and have realized that I am going to need to be hands-free in order to tend to my 3-yr old, fix lunch, fix dinner, and grocery shop with 2 kids. My older child will need to sit in the cart while I have the baby in a sling.

I love the Tokyo print. I use slings because my son is a lover of being held. Since it's warm out, it's easy to pop him in the sling so I can chase my daughter when we play outside. My daughter also enjoys a ride in the sling.

Love the Leaves Noir design and I love slings because they allow me to hold baby and still use my hands when helping other children.
