The Hava Ring Sling Review

What is it?

A long piece of fabric held together by a ring creating an adjustable carrier for an infant or child.

Features:

Adjustable
Multiple carrying positions
Padding along top and bottom edges
Plush shoulder pad
Sturdy ring
Zipper pouch in tail
Available in petite, regular and long
Wide array of patterns and colors
Soft cotton material – also available in organic cotton

Summary:

This carrier is comfortable for the wearer and child due to the padded shoulder and edging. Easy to use design and comes with an instructional DVD to teach you how to wear your baby in this sling. I love that I can put my keys, phone and even a receiving blanket in the zipper pouch located in the tail of the sling. This is very convenient for quick errands in and out of stores.

This is also the only carrier that I can easily nurse while baby wearing. When he was small, I would lay him down in the sling and make it tight across my chest. This allowed Jack to nurse and sleep as he pleased while I went about my day or even sat through church service. As he is getting bigger and older, I prefer to sit him straight up on my hip to nurse.

The sizing for this particular ring sling is very easy as it comes in just 3- petite, regular or long. We use the regular sizing and I love the print we chose called “esme”.
Depending on the print/color and fabric type you choose, pricing is between $69-$89. I give this product a 5/5 rating.

Undercover Mama Nursing Tank

The Undercover Mama nursing tank.

What is it?

A strapless tank top with attachments to convert any shirt into a modest nursing top. One would simply attach the undercover mama tank to a clip down nursing bra and then layer any other shirt on top. Then when the baby is hungry and needs to nurse, simply lift the top layer, and unclip the bra. Babe is nursing with ease and mother’s back, sides and most of her chest is still covered.

Features:

Affordable 24.99-26.99 + 3.00 shipping online
Wide variety of colors and sizes
Comfortable stretchy fabric
Draws less attention than large bulky covers while nursing in public
2 types of attachments for your nursing bra

Summary:

Because it is affordable, just about any mama on any budget can own one or more of these tanks. I personally own 2… so far (i plan to order more very soon). The wide variety of colors make them easy to match with an over shirt from your existing wardrobe. There is also a lace trim option for dressy occasions. The sizing runs from XS-XXL means it will fit most who are interested in this product. Undercover mama recommends a size smaller than normally worn to achieve a snug fit. Plus after you are done nursing, you can still use it with regular bras due to the double attachment feature.

I find this product to be comfortable, practical and affordable. It is all that it claims to be. I give it a 5/5 rating.
