Man, how much do I love the fleece Kangaroo Korner sling? So much!! It was so convenient when she was tiny and so incredibly cosy being made of soft polarfleece. It kept her, and me, really warm and comfortable. I used it whenever we went out, to the store, to church to a restaurant...anywhere. I kept it in my car and instead of keeping her in her carseat when we went anywhere, I would just pop her in the sling. It was great, and still is!
Out of the several slings I have tried this was has been BY FAR the most comfortable on my back and shoulders and it is also adjustable so that I could adjust it as Lucy got bigger and I got smaller, it could even be adjusted for Rob to use it. I will say the worst sling that I tried was my Hotsling that I picked up on sale at Target for our trip to Florida, since I thought the fleece sling would be too warm. I hated that thing, it killed my shoulder and Lucy did not seem comfortable because it had no give whatsoever. I do love my Moby Wrap though, which will be another review for another day!
The only drawback is that the fleece is way too warm now that the temperatures here in Oregon are in the 70s-80s, which means I need to purchase one of their lighter, all-season adjustable slings. Right now all slings on the website are 25% off, so I better hurry up and order my next one. Love this product!

NOTE: To clarify for Anonymous, I put her in the sling when we were walking around, like in the grocery story for example, instead of unhinging the entire carseat and bringing it into the store to put on the grocery cart or instead of putting her carseat into the stroller when we are walking around. I re-read that part and can see how it sounded strange. I would NEVER let her ride in the car without being safetly strapped into her car seat !! Thanks for pointing that out!
