  16. And after carrying my little girl in all those, I'm due with a boy on 19 April and I love that this sling is blue but not too "manly" like so many products for boys!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I've never used a ring sling before but would love to! Also I now kind of wish that I hadn't had my baby yet (I'd be past 42 weeks now) but she was born on the 6th! Oh well.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I think I'm too big for this sling, but my shorter and smaller sister-in-law is expecting, too, so if I win, I'll give it to her as a gift:)

  38. Too bad this would be too small for me.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Rixa I just LOVE your slings!!! Its so hard to choose! Some of my favorites are the vintage linen set pictured - the flowing lines of the edges are just so elegant - its a "dress up" sling. I also loved the linen blue fabric with the embroidered butterflies and flowers I think it was... I don't see it listed anymore but It was so adorable its the fabric I helped my friend select for the sling she got with a gift certificate I bought her!! I also love the reversible sling pictured on the custom page! Honestly there isn't much I don't like on your site(s) for that matter!!! LOL!!! ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  40. and I'm probably grasping at straws here for a second entry but I'll let you decide... I am not pregnant but I am entering this giveaway in the hopes I win this sling for a dear friend who is about 2 months from her due date and I know would GREATTTTLY appreciate one!!!

  50. Hi Rixa! My husband and I are expecting our first baby in October. We are so excited! We have already met with our midwife and are planning a home birth. I am also a PhD student in Anthropology and consider my specialty area to be cross-cultural parenting practices - I can't wait to use a sling! My hope is that a beautiful sling like this would spur conversation about baby-wearing in our small Midwest city. Thanks! Jayme

  51. For my second entry, I just want to thank you for always updating your readers with research and news about the fight to make home birth and midwifery care more available to women in our country.

  58. I'm expecting a baby sometime mid-July!

    (and I have to say that the "prove you're not a robot phrases frustrate me because 80% of the time, I have to reload 5 times before I get a phrase I can make heads or tails out of. They make me feel like such a loser--I fail at the internet)

  77. Rixa, I have 3 of your slings and I LOVE them! People are always asking where I got mine and I hand them one of your cards! Just gave one out yesterday at Walmart! I would love to win this one for my little sister who is due in July! It has been a real life saver to have a sling for my baby while trying to keep up with a pre-schooler! I get a snuggled happy baby and two free hands to deal with my son!

  91. Oh, and I am due in early April with baby #8. I have never used a sling, always carried my babies around. Not one to like to put them down, but with all I do at home with my kids...I am looking forward to baby wearing instead of my arm wearing out!

    ReplyDelete
  92. ...and I'm expecting baby #1 in May!

    ReplyDelete
