Parenting by Nature - Upmama Hybrid Baby Sling (Giveaway)

This giveaway is now closed. Thank you for your participation.
The winner is comment #98: Jessica.

Now that I’m officially pregnant, I’ve been keeping my eye out for exceptional baby items. I can’t believe how baby products have changed in just a few short years. For example, when I had Baby Bug there wasn’t much of a choice when it came to baby carriers. I settled on a Bjorn because that’s what everybody else had. Now thanks to Parenting by Nature, there are a lot more comfortable and stylish options to choose from.


At Parenting By Nature we know first-hand how catalog and online shopping can save you time, money and your sanity. We aim to make your shopping experience as stress-free as possible. With the convenience of around-the-clock shopping, finding perfect baby gifts or preparing your baby layette with cloth diapers has never been easier. Shop for baby slings and baby carriers, cloth diapers, natural baby toys, baby gifts and more, all from the comfort of home.


I was fortunate to receive an Upmama Hybrid Baby Sling to review in their beautiful Chocolate design. The first thing I noticed was the quality of the material that was used. It’s 97% cotton sateen & 3% spandex (in the width for give). They also added a gorgeous printed zippered pocket to keep all your smaller baby essentials.

Even though I don’t have a baby to put in it yet, I did try the sling on and it was so simple to tailor it to a perfect fit by using the adjustable shoulder rings. However, the best part is that there is no bulky padding which makes this the perfect baby sling to take on-the-go. It can be  easily folded up in placed in my diaper bag. Thank goodness since I know I’ll already have enough things to weigh me down.

I was never much of a babywearing mommy but with this beautiful Upmama Hybrid Baby Sling, I can’t wait to show it off! I’m going to be the most stylish and comfortable mommy on the playground!

    I love Parenting by Nature slings. I think it is such a great way to keep your baby close, and is so wonderful for bonding!!!
    My favorite is the
    Blue Celery Baby Sling/Wrap Hybrid. This is one that is a little different because it goes over BOTH shoulders so if you have back problems or are prone to shoulder problems it might be a little more comfortable!
    Thank you for a GREAT Giveaway!!!!

    The BabyLegs Baby Leg Warmers are genius! I love them for all the reasons stated in their description and because they cannot wrinkle up under babies toes and cause irritation. They are fantastic.

    The Tummy Tub Bathtub! It’s like a big plastic bucket with handles that you immerse your baby into, baby automatically assumes the fetal position, and water comes up to their shoulders so they stay warm longer. Babies feel reassured and relaxed in the familiar fetal position. This is just the coolest baby bathtub! If I should win your giveaway, I would want the Chocolate/green sling that you received:) Many thanks!
