Baby slings are the most original way to carry your child
A baby sling is perfect for on the go. Whether you are hiking, on holiday or even at home, you have your hands free for other activities and your child is always with you. A sling offers a lot of advantages, especially for your baby:
Using a baby sling satisfies your baby's need for closeness. Your baby is usually ready to be in a sling from the beginning, as grasping and holding is a natural reflex of the child.
In addition, the child assumes the squat-spread posture of its own accord. This protects the child's back and supports the spine during transport.
The high level of physical closeness that the sling creates calms your baby. Even with crying babies, adjustment difficulties and regulatory disorders can be significantly reduced by carrying them in a sling.
Your baby can never get enough of warmth and security. Slings strengthen the child-parent bond for years. Baby slings make it easier and more frequent for you to maintain eye contact with your baby. Your baby perceives your voice as it does in the womb. This so-called bonding strengthens the child's basic trust and empathy with other people. During bonding in the sling, more oxytocin is released, also known as the cuddle hormone.
Your bond can be further strengthened with our bonding tops for bed or couch.

Because health also plays an important role.
Through the body heat of the parents, babies learn to regulate their own body heat better and faster. No matter whether it is a cold winter or a warm summer.
By being close to the child, you will notice more quickly whether your baby is too warm or too cold.
Breastfeeding is also made easier. You don't need an additional nursing sling or shawl. Just take one of our slings or baby carriers. All of them are made of high-quality cotton.
The baby carrier as an alternative
You don't want to learn how to tie a sling, but you still like to be comfortable? Or do you often have pain in your back? Then take a look at our baby carriers: Baby carriers are quicker and easier to put on than a sling and have a stabilising hip belt that takes the strain off your back.
Tips for wearing baby slings
There are many ways to tie your sling. Some techniques require a little practice. If you don't manage to tie the sling straight away, you can take a look at our detailed tying instructions or watch one of our videos. Each of our slings comes with extra tying instructions.
Newborn babies are not yet very good at regulating their body temperature. But a baby sling or baby carrier will help them to do so.
Tips for the cold season:
- If the skin colour is bluish marbled or paler than usual, your child is too cold.
- The colder the temperature, the thicker you should wrap your child. However, pay attention to the individual needs of your child.
- Wear your child under the jacket close to your body. Your body is like a natural hot water bottle in winter, but never too warm or cold.
- Don't forget the hat, most heat is lost through the head.
- Cover your child's hands with gloves.
Tips for the warm season:
- If the head is red, your child is too warm, even if the neck is damp.
- Cool down by undressing the baby.
- Walk and stand in the shade if possible.
- Do not forget sunscreen.
Avoid carrying the wrong way
Many parents think they are doing their babies a favour by tying them with their face forward. Even if you have seen it before with another slings or carriers (or in movies), this is wrong for several reasons.
