Did you like the carrier??? I ordered one too and I can't wait until everything comes! And it's good to hear someone say they have bought from these sites before, because I was a little iffy ... but you can't beat the prices!

It's nice, but it's not my style in a carrier. I like wraps and my mei tai.

I ordered both the baby leggings and the sling, and I thought the products were crap. It's all from the same company, which claims to be American, but I have my doubts. The leggings I got were hit or miss - with more than one pair, one leg was shorter than the other. And the sling is a glorified pillow case that smelled like gasoline. Their customer service is awful -- no response on several emails. So buyer beware!

I Ordered ALL of these items and all are sub par.

The baby legs I havent even opened. I ordered them in November and just got them a couple weeks ago.

The nursing cover was nothing exciting and the cloth smells like gasoline.

The carseat canopy hasnt showed up yet.

The nursing pillow is like a nursing pillow for ants....lol

The sling... Smells again like gas/chemicals and it doesnt look safe... I dont even get how it works with out the baby falling out.

I don't even know what happened to the baby leggings from when I ordered them. That was 3 years ago.

I make my own, well, made, when my sewing machine wasn't a butthead.

The only thing I've bought from that company is the breastfeeding cover. Ordered it back in October, I think. Since then I've seen them advertise EVERYWHERE it seems, which makes me question the company now. I don't think I'll use the breastfeeding cover too often since I'll be a SAHM, and I didn't want to spend $30 on one at Buy buy baby when I won't be using it much. I wouldn't order anything else from them.

Yes they always have free this and free that. I don't know how you can continuously give your product away, unless it costs a quarter, then they're making their money via shipping/handling fees. Which is what I suspect b/c I'd never pay asking price for their products.

I've bought the nursing cover and car seat cover, and I'm waiting on the breast pads. Neither of my covers smelled, and I tested them out not to long ago to make sure they'd work for me. I also couldn't see spending much on a nursing cover since I'd mostly be at home or could go old school and throw a blanket over us. That was strictly a convenience purchase. I only bought the car seat cover because I tried to hand-stitch my own out of old bed sheets, and I can't sew worth a crap and gave up. The items have to be cheaply made for them to offer so many "free" deals. The shipping and handling is outrageous for these items, so they make their profit on the inflated handling fees. Pretty sure it doesn't cost them more than a couple dollars to ship and package the stuff. It's like most of those infomercials that offer a second item for free, all you pay is shipping and handling. Yet, they won't advertise the S&H cost. You find out when you buy it. I figured these were worth a try for less than $50 for all three things when I would have had to pay significantly more for the higher quality items in the stores. Especially when I don't know if I will want to keep using them.

I ordered some of the baby legs and a sling last week. I could make my own but it would cost me more to buy the materials. I'm not sure about the sling since I love the mei tai I made and the baby k'tan I bought.

Lurking here, I bought the nursing pillow, udder cover, car seat canopy, 2 sets of reusable nursing pads, and the sling. Nursing pillow is tiny! We're going to let our 7yo DD use it when she wants to hold the baby, the waist area is that small. I actually love the car seat canopy, but I worry about how long it will hold up. Obviously haven't used the nursing pads yet so that's to be determined. The sling. Um yea. It's just a piece of fabric that I'm not real sure how it's safe or secure. probably won't be using it. The shipping took maybe a month or two with some of the items since they were on "back order" but they all arrived eventually.

Long adult socks is what I used to make baby legs

I ordered both the 5 pair of baby leggings (since I currently have a 1 year old), and the sling. An acquaintance gave me 1 pair of baby leggings that seemed to work just fine, and most of the moms in my last DDC also bought them. I ordered March 22nd, they have both shipped, and should arrive by April 3rd. The baby leggings quality is just fine, a little nervous about the sling given the feedback from others, but $10 each really isn't too bad.

Personally, I wouldn't use a sling that's that cheap, or a used one. I think new name brands are more reliable, but that's just me.

I got mine last week. The sling just smells like it's been in the plastic forever so no unusual smells. The leggings are so cute no problems with them. Other than they will be big for a newborn. Shipping was quick.

There is nothing wrong with using a used carrier. As long as you fully inspect it. You can get a brand new one that is made badly and get a used one that works better. I have both kinds, brand new and I have been gifted others because friends no longer needed them.


It's all about being an aware buyer.

My husband didn't even want me using a sling at first; even the most expensive ones. He said it looked like the baby was going to fall out. The only way he feels the least bit safe with me using one is if I get one of the most expensive ones that are built really study and haven't been used.

My favorite one is the one I made myself lol. It's a mei tai type and I'm not sure about wearing a newborn in it. I love my baby k'tan for that age anyway.
