After searching for an affordable ring sling, I came across Porter Baby Slings on Instagram. Their slings caught my eye because of the vibrant colors and the affordable price of $35. They have 13 colors and sometimes they offer limited release colors. After staring at all the colors for what felt like hours, I decided to get the red sling with black rings. It took seven days from ordering for it to ship. Then it got to me in two days.
It is packaged in a ziploc bag and folded. The presentation was beautiful. I was scared that the color in person would not be as bright, but I was pleasantly surprised! It was very red. My favorite shade of red!
I put it on right away. Maxine loved it! It was comfortable on my shoulder and easy to adjust. It is soft right out of the bag, and I bet it will only get softer. It is lightweight so I think it will be great for this summer.
From the website:
All Porter Baby Slings are made of a strong and durable 60% linen/40% cotton blend, making them suitable from birth into toddlerhood (5-35 lbs). Porter Baby Slings uses 3″ aluminum rings. We use only Sling Rings brand rings, which are designed specifically for use while babywearing. Sling Rings are rigorously tested to ensure the safest possible product. We use only 100% polyester Gutermann thread. We use colormatched thread for all ring slings. Porter Baby Slings measure approximately 77″ long from rings to tail and will fit most parents from XS-XL. Our slings use a gathered-style shoulder.
Even after a wash, the color is still very bright! It looks like I never washed it. I will be using this sling a lot during the summer and I recommend Porter Baby Slings as a great budget sling for everyone!
