Blue Celery Baby Sling/Wrap HybridProduct Rating: Product Review (submitted on May 10, 2012):
I highly recommend this for newborns.
Baby (3 weeks old) has been loving this hybrid wrap since just about day 1. It is quite easy to put on, and baby can be upright or in a cradle position. I have some issues with my back, so I was concerned about using a one-shoulder sling, and I was unsure how I would do with the seemingly-complicated wraps.
For me, this has been perfect for any time that I need to keep baby quiet and calm while I get some work done; he just sleeps in there and doesn't make a peep. I have even had some success with breastfeeding in public using this wrap, which is good because I don't have a nursing cover yet. My husband loves to wear the baby for after-work walks to the beach. (We happen to both fit into the 'medium' category.)
Many other people have remarked how much they like how easy it seems to put on, as many people are intimidated by the long-material traditional wraps.
Baby does get a little hot in there at times, but I can remedy that by changing the position to get his head some air.
So glad we have this for the newborn stage. I don't know how I could have done some of the things I've done in the past 3 weeks without it!
