Summer MUST be here soon!

With all the torrential rain and flooding that has hit the UK in the past month, it's easy to think that summer will not ever arrive. Ever the optimists, we have stocked up on gorgeous slings for the hotter weather. If you're holidaying somewhere nice and sunny, or hoping like us for some blue sky and rays, then these are perfect for you!

The loosely woven gauze flexes to fit your body and your baby. Made from breathable 100% cotton this soft flexible one-size sling works well from newborn to toddler and fits tall and small parents too. The wrap doubles up as a back carrier. In all positions, the carrier distributes weight evenly across both your shoulders and provides excellent support for both baby and adult.

The lightweight fabric is perfect for all seasons. Stay cool with your baby close to you indoors and out. Great for summer but convenient throughout the year as you’ll stay comfortable when carrying your baby round the house, on public transport, or in shopping centres. It’s also ultra compact, and an ideal sling to keep in your bag. The fabric is the same width throughout, with a slant cut end for an attractive finish. The fabric feels similar to a soft muslin or cheesecloth, and the wraps are made in the UK.

Bara Barn Shawls


The Bära-barn-shawl is suitable for newborns and children up to approximately the age of three, which makes the shawl both unique and economical. Smaller babies lie down in the shawl in a comfortable position similar to the fetal position. Your child will feel it is being looked after even if you are busy with something else. The child’s sensitive back is not strained. In a Bära-barn-shawl you can breastfeed discreetly.

The older child sits comfortably on your hip or tummy-to-tummy with the shawl supporting the bottom and the entire back. There is no strain on you, which will make you able to carry your child more often. With two shawls you can even carry twins. The cotton used has been tested regarding harmful substances according to Oeko-Tex standard 100, which fulfils the requirements for products with direct contact to the skin. The Bära-barn-shawl can be washed in 40 degrees Celsius/warm water. (Wash the shawl prior to using it the first time and it will become very soft.) Tumble dry on low heat or let drip dry. Some of the most colourful shawls may discolour other garments if not first washed separately. Swedish design, made of 100% cotton.
