nice comment

Did you know it is possible to nurse and bowl a strike at the same time? It’s true… Thanks to your sling. Baby #2 lived happily in my sling for the first 4 or 5 months…She’s actually 2 now (and still use it on occasion in the hip position). I just looked on your website hoping to find the instructional video. And I did. I was able to watch exactly what I needed to know. We are taking a train adventure tomorrow and rather than bring a stroller, I decided a ride on my back would be easier, fun and new. Honestly, I rave about you slings to anyone who will listen. I did a lot of research on slings and after meeting a mom at the park and talking to Sara from Natures Mother in Leucadia, CA, I chose Zolowear. We are trying for #3 and I honestly can’t wait… to upgrade to silk of course! Your company in fabulous! I will continue the ZoloGospel. - Melissa

1,002 uses for slings

Here is use 1,002 for a sling: wrapping a cat to give it medicine, so it won't scratch you. You could use a towel, but if you're like me, a sling is usually closer at hand than a towel, which is how I found the inspiration for this alternate sling purpose.

Shown below: our kitten, Laptop, lounging post-meds in the hibiscus organic cotton sling. I did not wear Laptop like a baby while giving his medicine, but wrapped him in the sling when it was not on me. Then I put him in like a baby, and he was most content.

Most miniature dogs, for example those that are sometimes seen riding in purses, love to ride in the sling. Many kitties don't care for the sling, but some cuddly kitties, like Laptop, really like it. Others might tolerate it briefly. For example, if your new sling arrives in the mail and baby is asleep, and you just can't wait to try it out. (You know what I mean...) You will find out pretty quickly if your cat is the sling type or not.

Sometimes you have to wear a sling just because it is so breath-takingly pretty. Check out this stunning silk brocade sling from ZoloWear. It is so pretty my teeth hurt. ZoloWear slings are also some of the best made ring slings out there, comfortable shoulder, zip pocket, quality fabrics…the whole package.
