Cool to me a Mama!

I was sitting thinking the other day (I know...dangerous, right?), and I realized how far fashion has come in the last 10 years. Not just everyday fashion, but fashion for pregnant mamas and new mamas. Since I have an almost 9 year old, and a newborn (and one in the middle), I have seen how far we've come. So I'm going to dedicate my next few posts to show you some of my favorite mommy fashion inventions. Let me know if ya'll have any favs!

This is my sling (the black and white one). I love it dearly! When I had my boutique, I was prego w/ Hadley. I was at market in Atlanta and went to the baby floor. Luck would have it that I passed by the Sweet Fletcher booth and met one of the owners. She was so sweet and sold me this sling. It was a sample so I got a great deal on it! I was a sling mama with Hadley, and have continued it with Eli. Love it. It is so much easier to hold him while chasing Hadley, than toting the car seat around. I would've LOVED for these to have been around when Alex was colicky and screaming constantly. Not that they didn't have slings back then, but they definitely weren't this cute and hip! I always get compliments on it. Check out Sweet Fletcher for more cool designs.

Also, I have my eye on this one. It's called Baby K'Tan. Not as fashionable, but I think it'll be easier when Eli gets a little bigger. Shoot me an email or leave a comment if you know of any others I need to be considering!

That sling is SUPER cute! I haven't heard of this particular brand. I've been planning to get a Hotsling.
I checked out the website you're recommending, and they're sold out of all the cute ones. :(
I may have go with the Hotsling since time is running out.

Just ordered a peanut shell sling. I've heard good things. Hopefully it's a good one. :) I got a good deal. I love a good deal!
