Sling With a Twist


It’s amazing how far pretty fabrics can carry you, and PUJ slings make toting baby a breeze while dressing up your spit-up-absorbent-mom-outfit. Reader Amanda wrote in about PUJ, saying, “[The sling] has a great look and is surprisingly comfortable. It takes practice to get it on fast but I really like it because it is like having a third arm. My baby is close to me and I still have two hands free.”

We tested PUJ slings and love the compact simplicity. Foldable to the size of a clutch wallet, these slings come in a variety of pretty fabric pairings and work for the (stable-necked) 3 month+ crowd. Just slip the sling over your and baby’s head (and one of your arms), secure under baby’s bottom, and twist the fabric over the anchor shoulder for a cuddly fit.
