Pippalily Perfection

4 Aug

 

Update Sept 4/10 Congrats to #28 Alysha

Thanks to the wonderful Victoria, owner and founder of Pippalily, I had the opportunity to try out their pippalily sling and what a great opportunity it was. I had tried pouch slings in the past and never was a huge fan. Either it wasn’t very comfortable to wear for long periods or the fabric or pattern did not appeal to me to wear it to special events (ie: weddings, birthday parties) and to everyday activities.

Victoria created the Pippalily sling out of a necessity, knowing first hand how mothers need to be hands free at times if they hope to get anything done! When Victoria’s first child was born, a natural born cuddler and loved to be held (what baby doesn’t!) she used her sling all the time.  However, for those who wear a baby carrier every single day you come to appreciate quality fabric and design as it does become part of your fashion, and Victoria wanted just that!  I know from personal experience that there are many days that I will throw on whatever top if I know I will be looking great with my carrier on 😉 

Pipalilly’s mission states that they are “committed to launching products that add value to parent’s lives, of course with an element of style!”  There are great styles available to choose from and trust me when I say its hard to choose just one! I have had several compliments on the “look” of my sling and do feel extremely yummy while wearing it 🙂

Comfort

The Pippalily sling is extremely comforatable.  With a wide band that comes across your shoulder the weight is well-distributed throughout creating comfort even when worn for hours! Not only was it comfortable for mommy it was comfortable for baby. He loved being close to me and being able to see around when he was awake in the sling.

Versatility

With Pippalily’s pouch sling you have the option of wearing baby in the infant position, infant position with peek a boo, front carry position or on the hip.  My babe, 11 weeks, loved the peek a boo position for when we were out and about and when he got tired he liked being tucked all the way in.  I love how I am still able to nurse while wearing the sling, especially for those first few months when he seems to nurse around the clock! I am able to continue shopping, walking, etc while nursing at the same time! The sling is adaptable for infants to young tots ensuring you do not need to buy mulitple products.  This product was only tested on my babe from 7 to 11 weeks.  However, I would have no problem, and probably will at some point, like another Pippalily to add to my babywearing stash! They are just too beautiful to resist!

    Very pretty! I LOVE pouch slings for hip carry. #1 was too big of a baby to use the newborn/kangaroo carry but popping in and out of stores in the hip carry when they can hold their head up (3/4 months?) is awesome! I still use it with Brooke and she’s 10.5 months.

    That site has very nice diaper clutches.

    PS You have a dead link at step #1 to their site.

    I love the diaper clutch in periwinkle! So cute. I tried a Hotsling with #1, and was never a fan. Would love to try the Pippalily with #2 who is now crawling!!! I would love a convenient way to “throw” her on my hip when popping in and out of the car. I “liked” them on FB!
