I’m all for babywearing, and not just because it keeps my baby secure and happy. Frankly, I’m more selfish than that, and slinging my baby frees up my hands so that I can do other things.

Oh okay, the sling hides my flabby postpartum stomach. 

But tot-to-go founder Shani Sam slung her baby for a bigger reason: Her daughter was born with a rare liver condition and required constant comfort. (Colic doesn’t sound so bad after all, does it?) Inspired by her baby, Shani began designing her own slings in cool cotton or cozy fleece-cotton jersey blends, to be both stylish and comfortable for the both of you.

While they take care of your baby nicely, I guess it’s the story behind them that makes me feel warm and fuzzy too. –Julie
