Babywearing: New Native Pouch Sling Review

newnativeorganicThere are so many slings on the market, yet our friend Jen at sells only the New Native Baby Carrier. Jen’s a breastfeeding expert who recommends only the best products for nursing moms.

Moms can wear their baby comfortably in the New Native sling while discreetly nursing. The New Native is a favorite of celebs like Keri Russell and Angelina Jolie who have been pictured using it.

The wide carrier strap provides great back support, and it can be repositioned to allow moms to carry baby in several different positions (front, hip or back) while facing inward or looking out. (Click here to view the different babywearing positions.)

I received a sample from New Native to test. I found this pouch sling easy-to-use. Its small size is a great benefit since you can stuff it into a diaper bag or medium-sized purse. While New Native says you can use the sling until baby weighs 35 pounds, I was most comfortable carrying a small baby in the cradle hold. My son weighs close to 30 pounds, so I tried carrying him in the Hip Carry. While I was able to carry him without fatigue, New Native recommends that you support baby with your arm in this position. I prefer a more structured back carrier for hands-free convenience. But I wish I’d owned a New Native when he was a newborn.

The New Native Baby Carrier comes in five sizes (click here for sizing information) and numerous fabric patterns (organic cotton, silk, and cotton twill). My favorite pattern is the  stylish organic natural twill with whispering grass trim pictured here. Buy online at and ($53.99 for the organic cotton and $39.99 for the regular cotton twill patterns).

    I have learned some new items from your web site about desktops. Another thing I’ve always assumed is that computer systems have become something that each residence must have for a lot of reasons. They provide convenient ways in which to organize homes, pay bills, search for information, study, pay attention to music and perhaps watch tv programs. An innovative technique to complete these types of tasks is a laptop computer. These personal computers are portable ones, small, powerful and convenient.
