Comfy Joey Wool Sling Review and Giveaway

Did you enter to win the $25 Comfy Joey voucher and lose?  Well, GREAT NEWS!  Comfy Joey is amazingly generous and I am able to offer not one, but TWO more vouchers! 

Along with the Dolly Sling, I was also given a Newborn Wool Sling

I was super excited when I got the sling in the mail.  I love baby-wearing, and trying out new carriers is always fun.

The Newborn Wool Slings are for use between birth and 25lbs.  Miss Baby is 25 lbs. so she is right at the top of the weight limit (they are safe up to 30 lbs. 25lbs. is for comfort).  It is a handwash in cold water item and should be air dried. 

This sling is so cozy and cuddly that I have not gotten a chance to use it very much, because we have had a quite warm summer.  It is a grey, tan, and cream houndstooth with silver rings, which means it matches everything you could possibly want to wear it with.  The sling is very well made, and the rails are pretty easy to adjust.


The only downside to this particular sling is that after I washed it, it smelled a little weird.  I am assuming this is because it is wool, and wool is made from sheep and wet sheep probably smell a little funky.  When it dried I didn't really notice the smell anymore.

Today Miss Baby and I walked to the store, but I wore the sling for when she got tired, and it was great to have.  You can't really wear soft structured carriers around without kids in them unless you like looking ridiculous.  I think that slings are perfect for shopping, because a kid on the front is in the way, and a kid on the back is a liability.  On your hip, where you can see everything they are doing, but you can still shop, is perfect.  I prefer a wrap or soft structured carrier for a long walk, but slings are perfect for short walks or having on hand for when you need them.

I plan to add a couple of pictures of Miss Baby and I using the sling, but I have not gotten any yet, so I am using photos from the site until tomorrow when I will have my husband take some.

Fill out the entry form below to enter to win one of the vouchers!  I have made the follow me on Facebook entry optional, because I know I hate following a zillion places on Facebook just to enter to win awesome things.  But I promise I don't post more than a few times a day, and most days I don't post at all, so I would REALLY, REALLY appreciate it if you could follow me even though it isn't mandatory, I won't clog up yours newsfeed :)

Giveaway Tools was acting up so I replaced it with Rafflecopter, but if you already entered, I will add your entries (assuming I can figure out how...). If I can't figure it out, I will email you so you can re-enter.

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

This was actually one of my more popular posts when it was first published, but I still thought I would share it again.  Any additions to the post are in pink, as usual :)

Accidental Pregnancies - So I have been trying for years to get pregnant, you go slut around and accidentally get pregnant? Immediate Pregnancies - You quit taking your birth control last month and now you are pregnant? People Who Give You Retarded Advice -           - Just stop trying and you will get pregnant
           - My friend adopted a baby and got pregnant right away, you should do that

             intoxicated and forget to take precautions.)
Whiny Girls That Pretend They Are Infertile - Trying for 5 months is not suffering from infertility. It takes a year on average to get pregnant.  I get that it might FEEL like infertility but it just isn't.  After YEARS of trying, I can't even remember what tr…

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

Pros:
- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs


Cons:
- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…

Is Mother Goose Time Worth The Money?

Last night my husband asked me if I thought that Mother Goose Time was worth the money if I didn't get it for free.  I think this is an excellent question, and one that people probably want to know.

How Much Does It Cost?:
Mother Goose Time costs $75 a month for one child, including shipping if you buy it month to month.  If you can order and pre-pay ahead of time, you can save up to 15%, depending on how far ahead you pre-pay.  If you have more than one child using the curriculum it is only about $5 a month to add a child.  Many of the products provided cover the entire class, including manipulatives and story books.  The things that each child needs come packaged in their own bag for each child.

What I Think of the Curriculum:
The curriculum is great.  It is thorough and engaging.  It provides me with ideas and supplies to teach my son things I never would have thought to teach him, but will make him a very well rounded person.  He now talks about things he never would have talked…
