It's hot in Florida! And although baby wearing can be a lot more convenient than a stroller, sometimes it just gets too hot to have on a bulky carrier. That's one reason I was excited to try the SUPPORi Baby Sling. It's environmentally friendly and does not retain heat due to its
permeable design which reduces the threat of heat rash that other
carriers may cause. It's very breathable! So, it is great all year round, even during the hot Florida summers.

SUPPORi sling is so great for quick trips and outings or when your baby
wants to be carried around a lot. Baby Boy doesn't usually mind the
stroller, but sometimes he just gets fussy and wants to be carried. Not
to mention it's super easy to just keep in your purse or diaper bag so
you have it wherever you go. It's so light- lighter than an iPhone!
You can be wearing your baby in less than a minute- anytime! I pulled it out at the Zoo and the first thing my sister said is, "I want to borrow that for sure with my next baby!"
Here's how easy it is to use:

The SUPPORi is capable of supporting babies up to 28 pounds. Baby Boy is now 9 months old and a little over 21 pounds and fit perfectly in the SUPPORi. The material that the sling is made of is very strong and stretchy, but I definitely had to make sure that the sling was fully covering his bottom and hips all the way to under his knees to prevent the hem from digging into his chunky little legs. As long as I did this, he was comfy.
Like Step 3 says, you do need to support the baby with your hand. I would not consider this a totally hands free baby carrier. The opposite shoulder strap does support the weight of the baby and takes a lot
of pressure off of my arm under the baby. No weight is put on my arm, I
am just using it to support my baby's back and keep him upright. The best thing about this sling is that I can definitely carry Baby Boy for longer periods of time without having my arms feel like they're going to fall off. (My child seriously feels heavy after even a few minutes!) Keep in mind though that SUPPORi is not meant to be used continuously for more than 2 hours.
SUPPORi is fashionable and stylish too! It's available in a wide variety of trendy colors to choose from. So, whether you’re a mom or dad, I'm sure you can find whatever color will work for you best- red, white, or blue! There is even a limited edition USA design.Check out the more than 15 colors that are available here.
