Verdict? Brilliant baby shower gift. I love ring slings for newborns to toddlers. They're light, compact, versatile, breastfeeding-friendly and relatively simple. Soul slings have just made them very easy on the pocket as well, and I am happy to support a company with ethical labor conditions and fair pay agreements in place. The double-layer linens come in a variety of color combinations (you can pop over to ... To see the full range) and I've broken this one in easily with a few washes, a bit of tumbling in the dryer and a little wear.
