How To Use
This pouch-style sling is one of the easiest types of slings to use in the bath. Just fold the sling into itself, creating a pouch. Drape over your shoulder like a sash and pop your baby right in! No silly clips, buckles, or rings.
- baby should be carried near your center of gravity
- the curve of the sling should reach just below your navel once baby is in sling
- sling should never dig into your neck or slide off of your shoulder
Use a soft tape measure and start at the outer corner of your shoulder and measure diagonally across your body down to your hip bone. The number (in inches) should be in the 20's. If you do not have measuring tape available, try to stay in the height, weight, and shirt size guidelines. Remember the correct sizing for Bathing Buddies® shower slings is essential for both mom/dad and baby.

About Bathing Buddies®
The Bathing Buddies® Shower Sling was created by Christine Sevier, a working mother whose husband was overseas while she raised their first child. After several unsuccessful attempts to bathe her baby in a traditional baby bath tub, she started to shower with her baby, holding her in one arm and soaping her with the other. Her baby was very happy, but this practice was very dangerous. Christine knew there had to be an easier, safer way to shower with her baby. That's when the first shower sling was created. Christine knew women all over the world showered with their babies. How could she share this with other parents? After a partnership with one of her best friends and several prototypes, the Bathing Buddies® Shower Sling was born!
