The Mini Monkey baby sling is a great close baby carrier which is versatile and fun to use. Available in a selection of funky colours, this baby pouch sling has four positions to grow with your baby.
Banana (0-3 months)
Baby can be carried in the sling in the banana position from birth. The baby is put diagnonally in the sling, with the head touching the outside rail and bottom more towards you. It hears the heartbeat of the sling wearer reminding him of the cozy womb he just left. The sling is also great for discreet breastfeeding.
Kangaroo (3 months +)
Once baby's back is stronger, the kangaroo position can be used. In this position baby sits facing forward in the sling with feet forward and up high. Baby's head leans against the sling strap.
Once the toddler's back is strong enough you can use the hipster position (instruction video). In this position the clasp sits on the chest so that the sling will sit just above your hip. The toddler sits in the sling with legs coming out on either side of the wearer's hip.
Hammock in the playpen (0-3 months)
The baby sling can also be used as a hammock in the playpen. Gently rocking the hammock to-and-fro will put baby to sleep. Also helpful for babies with colic. The sling can also be used in larger playpens - in this case it should be hung diagonally in a corner.
