I love wearing my babies. When I wore Jayden, we used a wrap, pouch slings, and structured carriers. With Jaxon, we used a wrap very briefly and dove right on in to structured carriers. Structured carriers have been my goto, but now that it’s warmed up, I’ve been wanting a little more freedom from buckles and padded straps and something a little more dainty. I’ve always wanted a ring sling and the main thing that’s held me back was price.
When searching for rings slings comparable to a popular and more expensive brand… I discovered Comfy Joey and I literally squealed in excitement. Comfy Joey’s ring slings are SO gorgeous and their prices are right. They offer slings for everyday wear and special occasions. There’s something for everyone. Prices start at $62.50 for the linen blend and $72.50 for the linen slings. They also offer custom slings (available in silk as well) that range from $97.50 to $227.50. It all depends on how fancy you’re feeling.
While my budget is best fit for the linen blend and linen slings, let me share with you how fabulous the customs are. Ayesha of Comfy Joey let me design my own linen ring sling which I absolutely love (disclosure). It took me a bit to decide on the colors as I had so many vibrant color choices! I chose a color scheme that would compliment most of my earthy wardrobe. I chose ginger-chai as my main color and coral-rose, chocolate-brown, and lemon-grass for the tail panels.
The slings from the Design Your Own Sling Collection are luxurious. They feature a versatile CJ Hybrid Shoulder, which allows the fabric to be spread wide to hug the shoulder or gathered to eliminate pressure points and offer freedom of movement for the ring-side arm with very little bulk. I love these features because I can adjust the sling to our comfort as Jaxon grows.
To add to Comfy Joey’s fabulousity, they also offer toddler-width linens with a hybrid shoulder for extended wearing as well as sling to wrap conversions. All Comfy Joey Slings are made to order in the US with an estimated turnaround of 3-4 weeks. For a faster turnarond, Comfy Joey Slings can also be purchased at in-store and online retailers.
I don’t want to sound overzealous or anything… but this sling is everything. And because I’d love to be rewarded in store credit, I’ve signed on as an affiliate of Comfy Joey. So if you’re thinking about making a purchase, I’d love if you’d mention me and/or use my unique URL. It’s pool and beach season, so you may want to check out the mesh water slings. Hint hint, nudge nudge. ;-)
