|Linen vs. Cotton|
|Prestige Ring Sling - cotton|
|Linen Banded Ring Sling - Linen|
"Does this mean that you HAVE to have a linen sling if you want to wear your baby in the summer?" Absolutely not. You are still very comfortable wearing your cotton clothing all summer long, right? the same thing is true for your sling. While the linen is slightly cooler, the cotton sling will still be comfortable.
"I only ever plan to have one baby carrier. Should I forget about linen because it won't be supportive enough when my baby is older?" Again the answer is no. While the cotton sling is the most supportive option, Our linen slings are made with a very supportive fabric that is heavier than other linen slings so that it can be very supportive even with older babies.
So in a nutshell, your cotton sling is the most supportive, but can be harder to learn to use. The linen sling is your coolest option and easier to learn to use, but not as supportive for larger babies. So which is most important to you: Support or cool? If they are equally important to you, then it may just come down to the overall look of the carrier. Do you want more of a print, or a solid sling? Our cotton slings have an all over print while our linen slings have a solid body with a print accent.
So now that you have decided between cotton and linen, you have one final decision too make... which print do you want. Thankfully we have lots to choose from, so hopefully you can find THE one that speaks, begging to be part of your family and help you keep your loved one close.
