Gift Guide: Nicole's Baby Slings Review and Giveaway!!!

Most moms of newborns would agree that a good baby sling is a must-have! It's so nice to have your hands freed up when you have a sweet, brand new baby who constantly wants to be held and snuggled. I was so thrilled to find Nicole's Baby Slings. . . beautiful, well-made slings in a large variety of fabrics and sizes, for a great price! All of her slings (even reversible ones!) are only $35!!! If you've compared prices of other baby slings, you'll know what a fabulous price this is! To make the savings even greater, she's currently offering free shipping on all orders until January 1'st!
Nicole lives in Ontario, Canada, and she describes herself as a "down-home girl" who understands what it's like to be over-charged for something that only takes pennies to make. She truly enjoys making beautiful slings at a great price, and she's happy to customize them for you at no extra cost! She does all her own sewing on her little machine in a spare room at her home. I love supporting moms who make wonderful products out of their homes!

I had a hard time choosing which fabric I wanted for mine, since there are so many very pretty choices. But I ended up going with this vibrant, gorgeous pattern because it's so UN-like any baby sling fabrics I see in the stores and because it makes me smile to look at it. Not every baby product has to be pastel and baby-looking, you know? I love it!

I used my sling quite often when Natalie was a newborn, and it was wonderful! The quality of the fabric is VERY good, so silky and smooth, and Natalie was really happy in this sling. I will absolutely use this sling for my next baby, and recommend it to everyone! If you know someone who's pregnant, one of these slings would be a much-appreciated gift that will get many hours of use.

Another awesome thing about ordering from Nicole's Baby Slings is she can make slings for women of all sizes. This can be difficult to find from other stores and retailers, since they mostly offer sizes up to XL. Nicole will make them up to 4X, and all you have to do is contact her and ask for customization. I love how she's so eager to work with all her clients!
Nicole is generously offering a giveaway of one of her slings! The winner will be able to choose ANY sling in any size they want, including a customized sling! If you're pregnant or hoping to become pregnant someday, in need of a new sling, or just have friends who might love this as a gift, please enter this giveaway and help support a sweet mom who makes these from home!

  24. I like that the pocket is zippered--when I am constantly bending down to pick up my toddler or something she has dropped, it is great to have a secure pocket so that all the stuff I tote with our newborn won't fall out!
