UCHI DUO Twin Water Sling Review
Name: Mande Byrne
Twins: Identical boys, 14 months
- Stretchy, water friendly fabric. The material of this carrier is nothing like I’ve seen before. Usually these type of carriers are more of a cotton fabric where this is more of a thick/meshy fabric. As a result, not only can you wear this around for everyday use, but you can wear this in water. IN WATER! Living in a beach destination, this is incredible. This will prove to be a must have summer accessory for twin mamas!
- Vibrant fabric color. This fabric seems like it’ll withstand its fair share of washes where the standard cotton fabric carriers lose their luster after a few washes.
- Breathable fabric. This fabric, as I’ve mentioned, is stretchy and thick mesh BUT it breathes! The standard cotton type of carriers made this mama sweat it out during those hot summer days carrying only a singleton! This will be a great add to our summer lineup.
- Fits a WIDE variety of sizes! This type of carrier fits a wide variety of baby sizes and mamma & daddy sizes too!
- I did need help getting the boys in the carrier but they are also older and move a lot more. Younger babies would likely be able to be placed into the carrier by one person.
- Overall the carrier was very comfortable for the wearer (mom & dad!), and the boys seemed to like it as well.
This wrap came with instructions that had detailed pictures and, though I failed the first couple of tries getting it on, when I actually read the instructions, I was able to get the wrap on comfortably and easily. Read the instructions, kids!! The forgiving fabric of this wrap allows for easy on, easy baby positioning and allows for easy adjustments. There are even YouTube videos helping through how to get the carrier optimally situated.
