Baby in a Fishbowl Review & Coupon



When you are looking for a great selection of fabrics and patterns and the ability to personalize the features of a sling, Baby in a Fishbowl is the sling shop for you. Both sized pouch slings and adjustable ring slings are available for purchase and I was excited to find an affordable, but quality carrier option to recommend to you. I chose to review a pouch sling, since I prefer the convenience of popping it on and off without the need to adjust anything, and I tend to use a pouch style sling for quick trips into the store or up the stairs to a friend’s house. 


The biggest factor in finding a good fit is to measure (not guess) your measurements, then factor in the size of your child, the way you carry your weight, etc. Theresa has a detailed section to help you find the best fit for you and your little one here. Baby in a Fishbowl is not restricted to baby slings either, and she carried a variety of products including scarves and aprons. She puts love and effort into her slings and the pouch sling was sewn together, top-stitched and finished in a very polished manner. Sometimes as functional as a WAHM-made product is, it has small imperfections, but this sling was made in the most professional, flawless manner. She was super sweet to work with and whipped up a camo/moca reversible sling for us with a little hook where I can attach a toy or my keys. 


Overall Rating: 8


Overall Fit: 8


Fabrics Used: 
Available in cotton and flannel as well as in combinations for reversible slings with a minky reverse option/add-on.  


Fit on:
Shoulder 
Wide fabric encompasses a wide portion the shoulder making it fairly comfortable.
Back
As with most pouch style and ring style slings, it is comfortable with younger/lighter children and for shorter periods of time with older/heavier children. Although this style does a pretty good job distributing the weight, I would recommend a backpack or mei tai style carrier for longer trips and heavier children. The cotton fabric is great for more support as it doesn’t stretch or sag like some stretchier fabrics.
Waist/Hips
Does not fasten around the waist or hips. Child can be comfortably worn on the hip for quick trips, and this is my preferred way to carry my little one in a pouch sling.
On baby
Keeps baby’s knees even with hips, which is optimal for their spines. Optional cushioned thigh padding may be added to make a comfier ride for baby.
