For some reason I could not get the sling small enough for my 5'3" height. The baby ended up so low and it was a hazard not to knock her head into things, so I had to be constantly on guard. I'm thinking there's something I'm missing in the adjustment.

Nice playing good quality
Liked It, Better for Younger Baby
Chantel from margate, FL– Verified Buyer
I liked the product, but I purchased for an older baby, that was pre-walker and he moved around a lot. I was always worried I didn't have him in right and had to hold his bottom. I think it is better for newborn - just before walking and creeping stage. I will be saving it for my next baby. -)

WHAT A LIFE SAVER. It is a little tricky at first to place baby but once you get a hang of it you are good to go. Mom can get things done and baby is happy close to mom!
Alejandra Gonzalez from Pico Rivera, CA– Verified Buyer
Love it. I mainly use it in the side hip position. My 5 month old feels very secure in it. Best of all, my back doesn't hurt. I've worn it numerous times and there is no pain in the shoulder either. My 5 month old weighs about 16lbs.

This is one of the best slings I have found. The price is very reasonable considering others ate going up to $100. I have enjoyed being able to have hands free to do chores while still having him close.
Excited to use this

We are two weeks away from expecting our first baby and I can't wait to try this out. My husband wanted a sling vs. a carrier, he thinks they're more comfortable for baby. I didn't care either way so I ordered this one and it's so nice. The fabric is very soft and seems repelint in a way so it won't be a lint trap. We got the black originial one. Youtube has a lot of videos on how to use it - I highly recommend watching them for proper use and you can really see how comfy baby is. Check it out. We can't wait to use this and for baby to arrive.
Multi-task with Cuddle Time!
Puffin from Edmonton, Alberta
I use this carrier when my baby is needing extra cuddle/holding time but I need to get things done. I prepare for cooking, clean, work on the computer, do crafts, etc. with her in it. It allows me to hold her in her favorite positions (cradle or in fetal position upright on my chest) and gives my arms a break.
Balboa Baby Sling
Regina from San Diego, CA– Verified Buyer
The Balboa Baby adjustable sling looks nice and constructed with quality although I have not been able to use it with my newborn. The baby pocket is long and wide, so much so that my child cannot get comfortable in it. I'll have to wait until my infant is larger to know whether or not I enjoy it and will recommend it to others.
