Wilkinet Sling ... the same! The Wilkinet Baby Carrier is a well-padded fabric carrier with a unique wraparound method of tying. It provides excellent support for both mother and baby and can be used for carrying 5lb newborn babies up to heavy toddlers, although we have found it is most useful in the first year. There are four different carrying positions to suit the age of your baby.

I know that a lot of people rave about the Wilkinet baby carrier and in theory I do think it's a great idea, as your baby is snuggled right up to you when he/she is a newborn and when they get a bit older (and heavier) their weight is supposed to be drawn into your body, rather than away, making carrying less of a strain. In practice, however I'm afraid I just didn't really get on with it. Basically, the Wilkinet baby carrier boasts that it doesn't have any clips to struggle with, un-pop, loosen etc. while you are out and about. What it doesn't say is that instead it has two impossibly long straps to contend with and it is very tricky to put the baby carrier ... Read the complete review

I’m a big fan of slings and baby carriers in general, of which there are an enormous variety now available, particularly over the Internet (rather a smaller range can be found on the high street). Not only are slings – good ones, at least – convenient and comfortable for mums (and dads) in many situations, but the majority of babies love to be carried and really benefit from the close physical contact. My little girl is a sociable little thing and loves the chat and interaction which she gets from other people (shop assistants, passers-by etc) when carried in the sling, as opposed to being lower down in the buggy where she is usually ignored by most ...

I was lucky enough to be given a wilkinet sling by a friend when I was pregnant with my first son (now 6) I loved it, and more to the point so did he! So why is the wilkinet different to other slings available from the high street? The Wilkinet sling, unlike other slings fully supports a baby?s hips and distributes their weight evenly. The baby sits in the sling as opposed to hanging as with so many slings. The Wilkinet is suitable for babies from around 5 lbs-30 lbs (2-12 kg) .My son was born prematurely (see my op on born too soon) and hated his pram, however he would fall asleep easily when I put him in the Wilkinet! I used my Wilkinet until he was 15 ... Read the complete review

I was lucky enough to have a friend who offered me the use of her "Wilkinet" while I was pregnant with my first child. It sounded quite a strange contraption, but I was delighted to discover it was a baby carrier. I felt this would be one of the vital item of baby equipment, living on the 8th floor of a block of flats with a lift that was not always reliable. Also I could never imagine how mothers managed a buggy and a baby on and off buses - and the thought of manouvering shopping bags in addition to this all seemed impossible! My experience was not completely as expected. Yes it did allow much freedom of carrying babe around, plus shopping bags - ... Read the complete review

I stumbled across an advert for the Wilkinet baby sling while reading a magazine when I was pregnant with my second child, it appealed to me as it was advertising the fact that it had been made by a mother after trying shop bought slings.This sling turned out to be a wonderful buy as after my first child I had tried a shop bought sling and did not find it very comfortable and rather difficult to put on. There is a range of colours to choose from and the straps that go across your shoulders are so comfy they have been padded for this reason. It is extremely easy to put on alone as the ties are across your front and the baby doesn't hang on its own weight therefore ... Read the complete review
