Previously purely functional, baby slings have undergone a marvelous evolution, incorporating fabulous fabrics that provide both a stylish ride for baby, and a welcome cover up for the spit up stains all over your shirt.
We recently were thrilled to learn about gOzOzO, a Boston area sling manufacturer. gOzOzO’s slings are similar in construction to the New Native carrier (made famous by Cindy Crawford), but take a big leap ahead by offering a great selection of machine washable fabric options at terrific prices (shown Retro Flower; $40). Even better, these slings are constructed to be reversible, with the patterned fabric on one side and a solid contrast fabric on the reverse. Choose from a range of premade slings, or build one from the ground up.
For your emulating little one, gOzOzO also offers doll slings ($12), and is soon to roll out a compact stroller pouch to tame on the go accessories for parent and baby.
