Or to be more accurate, a wrap. I couldn't resist. This is my early birthday present from Tevye, in pink striped jersey. Cosier than the linen sling as the weather gets cooler. At least, that is my justification for a shamelessly slingaholic purchase. Little Cherub and I tested it out today on a trip to a children's farm. She slept. And slept. And slept. I take it she approves. And me? After carrying her for most of the day, not so much as a twinge. I'm impressed!
