based Cuddly Cosy Baby company (www.cuddlycosybaby.co.uk)
have just launched two new, eco friendly baby slings to their existing range
of carriers, baby clothes, shoes, toys and accessories.
Cuddly Cosy Baby company have launched the Eco Fleece Baby Sling
and Organic Cotton Baby Sling worth £29.95 but on offer at £27 for
April and May 2008.
Eco Fleece Baby Sling is made from Polartec ® fleece, 85% of which
comes from recycled plastic. It comes in a Natural Beige colour.
The Organic Cotton Baby Sling is made from fabric grown by farmers
paid a fair wage. Its lighter weight makes it ideal for the coming
summer month. It can be ordered in either Dusky Pink or Pale Blue and
comes in its own jute, re-useable shopping bag.
Both slings are kind to the environment, perform brilliantly and all of the
Cuddly Cosy Baby Carrier range are manufactured on the company’s own
premises in North Devon, in an environmentally aware process.
I tested the
Organic Cotton Baby Sling. On arrival I noticed how lovely it was
packaged in a very useful natural bag.
sturdy card was enclosed information on babywearing and some of the
different positions you can carry your baby. The actual carrier is a
beautiful soft pink. The material is so divinely touchable and
perfect for a newborn or much older child. The Carrier is certainly
big enough to cover ALL the stages that you will need it for which I thought
was very good as most baby products are actually only used for a few months
then the child grows out of it.
The idea of babycarrying is very interesting. I started feeling quite
daunted by the task ahead. Will my baby be supported enough?
Will I be able to let go? Will she get in the way? My
fears were quickly wiped away. It is different but not difficult and
certainly worth trying. My main worry was making sure I tied the
knot safely and securely.
the carrier on I managed to place my precious bundle into the sling.
She was a little wriggly and it felt odd not holding her completely but it
was quite comforting knowing I had my hands free.
I am really pleased that Ive been allowed to try the Cuddly cosy baby
Carrier. My husband also tried it out with success. He said
there shouldn't be any mistaking that she is a girl in the pretty pink
On the instructions I would have liked to see a picture from the back so
that I knew a bit more that I had the positioning of everything right.
I think the
tummy to tummy style felt the best but will certainly try out the others
I am extremely happy to recommend the Cuddly Cosy Baby Carrier as its a

instructions but otherwise a fabulous system.

made from 85% recycled plastic bottles! I thought it would be horrible
material but it is so soft and warm to the skin on a cool day and cool on a
packaging was ok but I thought the information that came with it (on the
different positions) could've been a lot better. I would've like a lot more
pictures or photos to show what it looks like from the back etc. I checked
on their website but they showed no pictures or photos at all which I found
a bit annoying. So I think this side needs to be developed more, so as baby
grows I can always go back to it to see the next stage of positions.
the sling with my 11 month old baby. As he's a very nosey active baby he
didn't like the lie down positions but we found the "on the hip" the best
one for both of us.
I got a
good test of it when I used it on a day out with the family to a stately
home. We couldn't use the pram due to the stairs so we used the sling in the
hip position. I've got to say it was an absolute godsend!! When I first put
it on I realised that the material pulls tight and gives quite a lot. So it
went slack very easily and had to be tightened a few times until I realised
it needed to be tied higher up my chest and as tight as I can tie it so as
the weight of my baby went down it fell into just the right place and stayed
there all afternoon. I felt that it was very secure from then on. It was a
very hot day and I we both felt very comfortable and It didn't feel too hot.
I was able to have my hands free which was fine although I did feel more
secure just placing my hand on his back (as he has a habit of getting giddy
and throwing himself back!)
let my friend who has a 4 month old baby try it. She too found it a bit
fiddly to start with, but once she got the hang of it she found the lie down
position ideal for when she's breast feeding and running around after her
I though it was a very good carrier. I've tried other carriers before but
this was better in that it is made from mainly recycled products. I just
wish that the price wasn't more expensive than the "normal" cosy carrier. If
I were buying one, I'd probably go for the cheaper one. I also loved the
colour too as a soft beige colour would most of my clothes. I would've like
more position ideas online as with a baby and a toddler I haven't the time
to sit down and work out new ones for myself.
definitely recommend these to other mums. 8/10 for the sling & 5/10 for the
Totz2teens says: The
Cuddly Cosy Baby carrier appears to have been a hit with both reviewers.
The materials used are clever and resourceful. To an experienced baby
carrier the instructions wouldn't have mattered but to a newbie perhaps a
little more information would be a bonus. Overall a very successful
review of a lovely product.
