Baby Slings and Carriers From Pure and Honest Kids
By: Molly Ridenhour, Pure and Honest Kids
Babywearing is one of the oldest and most widely accepted parental practices in the world. Many highly acclaimed pediatricians have identified that babywearing is a good practice for little ones and provides benefits that unslinged babies do not receive.
For instance, a team off pediatricians in 1986 from Montreal concluded that babies who are carried in slings cry at least 40 percent less than those babies who are unslinged. To most moms, thatís reason enough to purchase a baby sling! The study also showed that babywearing helped reduce colic in infants as well.
Research also shows that babies worn in slings show more alertness, both visual and auditory, and absorb information much quicker. Because your baby is close to you when worn in a sling, he or she is not scared by loud noises, thus allowing them to absorb more sights and sounds around them. Babywearing also helps promote speech development, as babies are exposed to more conversations and sounds when held closely to their parents.
Another reason to consider babywearing is that your sweet little baby spent the first nine months of his or her life in your womb, and a baby sling closely mimics the feeling of being inside momís tummy. Your baby will feel safe and secure in your baby carrier, and it will promote a bond between parent and baby.
Lastly, using a baby sling or carrier can simply make life easier for you and your baby. It is a convenient way to breastfeed while caring for an older child, working or getting chores done around the house. It also is a great way to snuggle babies that liked to be held frequently, but it frees your hands to complete other tasks.
Choosing the Right Sling or Carrier:
At Pure and Honest Kids, we offer two wonderful slings and carriers for our customers.
The Polkadot Papoose is truly a baby sling for a modern mom. It is equally stylish and practical. It was designed by a freelance babywear designer with a vision for a product that would capture the hearts of sensible-yet-fashionable moms everywhere.
With a Polkadot Papoose, you take your measurements to be sure of a perfect fit. The folks at Polkadot Papoose know the importance of a correct fitting sling, and they want to make sure they get it right. To determine the correct size, measure from your shoulder to the opposite hipbone with a soft tape measure. Hereís a helpful tip- your sling measurement will usually correspond to your t-shirt size. Then simply order your size accordingly.
The Polkadot Papoose is 100 percent cotton, reversible and hand crafted. It comes with a binkie pocket, so youíll always be sure to have that all important binkie readily available!
The Polkadot Papoose offers a wide variety of designer fabrics to suit almost any taste. At Pure and Honest Kids, we offer the following patterns: Elisa, Melanie, Sayuri, and Scarlett.

PortaMee Baby Carrier
Another great carrier offered at Pure and Honest Kids is the PortaMee Carrier. Chic and easy to use, this awesome baby carrier is essential for active parents and busy caregivers. PortaMee is the exclusive baby carrier with ergonomic lumbar support to reduce back fatigue and discomfort. The side carrier allows caregivers the ability to maintain eye contact with your child, which will increase bonding.
The baby carrier by PortaMee is hands-free, stylish and constructed with fine fabrics with pockets for just about everything - your mobile devices, wallet, diapers and insulated detachable bottle holder. Leave your diaper bag at home when carrying your baby in a PortaMee Carrier and be truly hands free!
The carrier not only looks stylish, but it is very comfortable to wear and is well constructed. With a gel padded adjustable shoulder strap and waist straps, toy hook, and so much more, this baby carrier ultimately considers you and your child's comfort and safety first.
This carrier is designed for babies that can hold their head up unassisted and weigh between 15 - 35 lbs. While most carriers and slings are made for newborn babies only, the PortaMee Carrier is the next step. There is enough lumbar support in the PortaMee Carrier to hold your sweet toddlers, too. Also important to note, if you purchase a PortaMee Infant Headrest, also available at Pure and Honest Kids, babies as small as eight pounds (six weeks or older) can be carried in the PortaMee Carrier.
The PortaMee is made of a high quality nylon rainwear for the exterior and a soft micro-suede for the interior. Pure and Honest Kids offers the black carrier, as well as the brown and pink combination carrier.
The PortaMee Carrier is available at Pure and Honest Kids for $175.00.
