Sprout Pouch Review and Giveaway!

Ever since I outgrew my pouch a few months ago I have been craving a new one. I love my ring slings but I think every baby wearer needs a variety of carriers and I was in need of a pouch. I wanted something I could fold up and stash in my diaper bag. I enjoyed my Hotsling but knew there were tons of great slings available. I decided to do a a little exploring on the net and turned up a company called Sprout Pouch. This company makes baby wearing beautiful. I was immediately drawn in by the eye catching fabrics and simplicity of their web site. They were kind enough to send me a sling to try out and GIVEAWAY! Yes! It pains me to do this but I am giving away the beautiful pouch featured in the pictures below. I wish I could keep it for myself.


We only wore it to try it out and for the photo shoot!




I know some moms think their kids are too big to wear in a sling. Sprout Pouches support kids up to 35 lbs. I know many of you moms still carry your 30 lb 2 year old on your hip around the house. Don't lie! I know you do. Moms of toddlers always tell me they wish they had known about carriers when their kids were babies. Well, it isn't too late to try out a pouch. What are you waiting for? haha A well fitting pouch can take a lot of the strain off of you. If you are looking for a pouch I highly recommend the sprout pouch. It is easy to use and I had Eliza in it within minutes of it arriving at my door. The website has instructional videos for three different carries so you can get started right away! As an added bonus they make mama bags in the same fabrics as the sling. This would be an awesome gift for a new mom or for yourself.




The pouch I am giving away is a size XS. To enter go to the Sprout Pouch site and check out the "why sling" section. In your comment tell me one reason why slinging rocks! Please leave me a working e-mail address so I can contact you if you win. Contest ends July 14th. U.S. Residents only!

That is a very cute sling. I guess I would like to sling because of the ease and bonding.

Great contest... I would love to win a "Sprout Pouch". The traditional baby carriers don't seem to work for me and I think this looks like it would.

Thanx!
