What Parents Say About the New Native® Baby Carrier
"I would love to share my story with you. My Mom and I have been trying to come up with a hands free solution to carrying babies. I looked everywhere for a safe and comfortable carrier that did not drowned you or the baby. This morning on Good Morning America I saw something that was perfect, it was your carrier. My mom and I know a lot about babies I have three children of my own but, my mother has had over 100 foster babies. These little ones need to be held close so that they can learn how to bond. Many of them have also had special needs like drug affects, downs, and C.P.
Thank you for making such a wonderful product.
Thank you so much."
"The carrier is wonderful. The best I've tried and I've probably tried 15 kinds. Thanks so very much, you have helped make a happier baby and Mom."
"I wanted to say how much I love this sling! Before I had my daughter, I was very interested in the concept of babywearing and using slings. However, I didn't really like the look of the ring-slings with long tails and bulky padding. The idea of wearing baby in a sling appealed to me, but honestly, I considered it a "hippie" thing to do. I was SO wrong!
Though in the beginning I was a little hesitant to wear it out....because I rarely see people in my city with slings. I quickly began wearing it and 1---loved it SO much and 2----everyone would stop me and ask me where I got it. The design of the New Native is sheek and lightweight and I think looks very hip and trendy...not too earthy at all! I don't mean to put down earthy people at all...I just think that many people immediately reject the idea of slings because it seems too "hippie" or just for those who practice attachment parenting.
I wanted to post this endorsement of the New Native for people like me, who may think that a sling is not for them. Give it a try...go up to people with the sling and ask to take a look (I even had a someone in a grocery store ask if I wanted to "try on" her baby!). My daughter (now 6 months) beams when I pull out the sling, and she is actively engaging and exploring the world around her. There are so many types of people with different parenting styles...and slings are for all of us! Thanks!"
"Hi, I thought you might like the attached – our daughter loves the sling, both for napping and just for looking around and taking it all in. The sling is the best purchase I made."
"I'm a new mother and new Ph.D. My daughter was born on April 25, 2007. I was in the middle of revising my dissertation when I went into labor. Thanks to my New Native baby carrier, two weeks after her birth I was able to sit at the computer and finish my dissertation. After many hours of baby-wearing, I finished my dissertation manuscript. I had free hands and a happy baby at the same time! Thank you for such a great tool for new moms."
"Bailey(my dog) loves her new carrier! she's only 4 pounds and it's been hard to find one that she is comfortable in but this defiantly works for both of us! I'm so glad i found this!"
"I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you for this wonderful carrier! Our 6 month old Billy has been using his since he was only two weeks old! My first weeks post partum were very rough. I had a C-Section so could not lift that 'car-seat bucket carrier'. I felt tied to the house! Then I found your carrier and ordered it 'to try it out'. Ha! We cannot go anywhere without it! Our baby cries to get in it! People constantly comment on how "good" Little Billy is. I know the secret is that he spends hours in his New Native Baby Carrier! This carrier has given me freedom to do everything I want. We have gone to nice restaurants, attended parties, gone shopping, entertained, attended Mass, a funeral and trips to the grocery store have been an absolute breeze!
Your carrier has been an absolute Godsend. I do not know how I would manage without it. NOTHING comes close to New Native! When we attend La Leche meetings, Leaders have asked me if he is nursing. They cannot tell! The ability to nurse discreetly is immeasurable.
In addition, it keeps pesky strangers from trying to touch him or hold him constantly. In a day when people are so worried about kidnapping, I know Billy is safe and sound with me at all times.
Thank you, thank you!"
We LOVE our baby carriers because our baby LOVES them! He becomes calm and content just as soon as he recognizes we are placing him in there to hold him close."
"Hi my name is Kate and I just wanted to let you know how much my son Noah and I love the New Native Sling! Noah loves hanging out in the sling all over town!! I had to send this cute pic of him in his favorite mode of transportation!"
"I wanted to take a moment to thank you so very much for your wonderful product! Words are not enough to tell you how much my husband and I, and baby love this sling! We have 2 other slings- and only find that we use yours everyday. Our baby- Hailey loves yours the best. Whenever we take her out- we are able to do so without the use of the stroller- because the New Native Sling is so comfortable for both of us to wear. It is easy to clean, to take along because it is not at all bulky- and so easy to use. I have another wrap that I just am not comfortable with at all and I know how to use it! An added benefit: this sling is safe! She is snug in the New Native sling and is beyond content, no matter what I am doing or where we are. After trying a bunch of different slings...yours is the best. Everywhere we go, people stop to ask us where we got ours from...and I have given them your website address. I have been able to nurse in public- and so discreetly. I also have been able to take our dog for mile long walks each night- with baby comfy in her sling the whole way. At home, I am able to do housework, play with our son, you name it and she is content. We have been using this sling since she came home from the hospital and will continue to do so. Hailey is now 4 months old- and is able to be worn in the kangaroo carry now- and has so much fun looking around. I just can't say enough about your product and will happily send other customers your way! Thank you, Thank you, thank you for creating such a fantastic product!"
Take care of you!!!
"I am a mother of one TWO year old with another on the way. I was given a New Native Baby Carrier as a baby shower gift. As I got to looking at it to get fimilar with for the new one on the way, I relized I can use it with my son...NOW...Even though I am 7 months pregnant. It makes "putting a baby on my hip" so much easier with my bulging belly... I love this thing so much!"
"I purchased your sling over 2 years ago and have been meaning to tell you ever since that I absolutely love it! It is my favorite baby shower gift to give. I love how easy it is to use. My children love it and are so comfortable in it, they usually fall asleep. I just wanted to thank you. Without this product I don't know how I would ever get anything done with my 2 yr old and 7month old."
"I just wanted to give you guys some feedback on your baby carrier. My daughter and I LOVE it!!!! Thanks so much for providing this excellent product and for the great customer service."
Your loyal customer,
"Just wanted to Thank All of you at New Native. Your customer service is exceptional. In much appreciation,"
"I love this baby carrier!!..My daughter Lillian, from the beginning loved the warmth and security of this carrier..She gets giddy in the face every time I get the carrier to put her in for a trip. She now brings the carrier to me!! We love it!"
"I just received my sling yesterday as a gift from my mother, and my baby loves it already. He is 2 months old, and it is such a joy to be able to carry him around, nurse him and still have my hands free to take care of my 20 month old daughter. I have tried other baby carriers and slings and this one is by far the easiest to use. Thanks for such a great product!!
"Just dropping you a note to let you know how much I love my New Native Baby carriers - we have a small and a medium and now are using them with our newest addition, 2 week old Georgia. We got them when our twins were toddlers and wanted to be carried all the time but were getting too heavy to do so comfortably. The slings resolved that problem. Thank you for making such a wonderful product. We recommend them to all our friends having wee ones.
"We just adopted our beautiful 18 month old daughter from Belarus. I bought your sling in anticipation of our adoption and was more than happy to pack it with us. What a lifesaver! My hands were free as we stood in numerous lines for paper work and it was much easier than the stroller we brought for the cobblestone streets. Now that we have been home nearly three weeks, I'm even more in love with the Sling. It's great for keeping her close while shopping or doing housework. She gets so excited when she sees me taking it out. I guess she already knows that it's good to be close to Mama."

"My one month old daughter, and I love this carrier! In only two days, she has been calmer, both in and out of the carrier. She has slept more the past two nights and cried less the past two days. Now my hands are free to hold my three year old son at the same time I'm holding the baby! That makes him feel better too. I definitely recommend this carrier."

"Thank you so very much for your terrific product! When I first purchased the New Native® Baby Carrier, I needed something to carry my son that wouldn't cause my upper back to ache. Now seven months later, my son prefers the carrier over the stroller or backpack, so I always carry it with me wherever I go."

"I can't express enough how much I love (and how much my baby loves) the carrier. I wear her everywhere. In fact, I was able to comfortably carry her in it on a 6 mile hike! Nursing her in the carrier gives my arms the extra support they need, plus it offers added privacy for nursing in public."
Miriam and Eliana,
"Hello! I just wanted to let you know how much my husband and I like your carrier. We really appreciate how easy it is to use - no buckles or ties to worry about. It is amazing that your carrier fits both of us, since I am five-foot two-inches tall and my husband is six foot two-inches tall. Everywhere we go, people are as interested in the carrier as in the baby! Thank you for your friendly service, fast shipping and wonderful product".

"I just wanted to take the time to let you know how much I enjoy and appreciate the New Native® carrier! I've never been a sling fan- too awkward, bulky, too much material to mess with - but had seen pictures of your carrier in magazines and was always impressed with not only how comfy mom looked, but how happy the babies always looked too. So I decided that, with my third child, I'd try this sling. He loves it, I love it. I put him in there and it's clear that he's just happy as a clam, and I think he thinks he's back in the womb - he even 'purrs' when he's in there, after falling asleep immediately. I like that there's no clip, it's sleeker and more fitted, and I have a bad back too, and so far (baby only weighs about 9lbs at this point - he's two weeks old), no back strain!"
P.S. Also, I ordered my sling through my local consignment store, and it was at the store the next day! Way to go!"
Dear New Native®,
"I just wanted to tell you how much I love the carrier. I got it when my baby was a few days old, and have used it every day since. We use it when we want to go for a walk in the nice sunshine. We use it when we want to go downtown and get some errands done. We use it when she is fussy after feeding and needs some calming. We use it when I go to someone’s house so she will feel "at home". We use it all the time!
Anyway, it is so well made that once I settle my little girl in I am ready to go. I never worry that she will fall out. Your carrier has been a life-saver and a Daphne-soother! Thanks!"
"I used the carriers yesterday at the Ped. Office and wore them both together, I LOVE IT!!! It actually is easier than wearing one, they balance each other out, and my arms are not aching any more. I was in the office for two hours and wore them most of the time (they are 20 lbs each). It is so nice to not have them wanting down (in the dirty germy office hahahaha) It was wonderful not to have to haul out the stroller that they would only be in for five minutes and then want out of. It really is hard to go out and get around with two non-walking babies, and this carrier has been such a blessing!! I have told all my twin mommy friends, since it is so hard to practice attachment parenting with two infants.
"This carrier is great! Our eight week old baby is very cute, but very, excitable. When nothing else will settle her, the sling will. I can even carrier her with confidence while I do research in the university library (daring, eh?). And thank you so much for offering your factory seconds. The discount brought the carrier into a price range that is affordable for a couple of students. Not that the sling isn't entirely worth it. it sure as heck is; just that we don't have that much right now!!"
"We have a 3-month old little guy and have been using your carrier since birth. It is such a great carrier. Nolan calms down right away and falls asleep or looks out to check out what's around him when we go somewhere. Every parent we meet asks us where we got it...it's so great."
Justin, Nolan and Uta
"I wanted to thank you so much for making your carriers!! I recently received one as a gift from my co-workers and life has dramatically changed for me, my 18 month old and my 2 month old. My back feels better, my 2 month old is happy and secure in my carrier and I can keep up with my 18 month old. We just returned from a trip back east and that carrier was a lifesaver! Friends, family and strangers were all interested in how I was wearing my baby and I proudly praised your sling! I have highly recommended this carrier and given out your website info to anyone/everyone who would listen and will continue to do so. I can't tell you how happy we are with our new carrier. I really do feel that it has made a huge difference in the quality of our lives. I won't leave home without it! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
With huge appreciation,
"To everyone at New Native®:
Thank you so much for making this product! It's the one thing that I bought for me and my son that I absolutely cannot live without. I've given out your 800 number so many times in the past four months. People stop me on the street all the time to ask me how I like the carrier. No need to ask how my son likes it because he's so happy in it.
Anyway, I really had to thank you because your product made being a first time mom so much more enjoyable."
Enya and Baby Jakob
"My fourth child is one month old and we have been doing a lot of gardening together since I purchased your carrier. I've carried all my other children with the Nojo BabySling but it is pretty bulky and when I saw your simple design, I knew it would be a great fit. I also like how portable it is. I place it right in the diaper bag and I have it with me when ever I need it. It makes for a content baby and a happy mom."
"I grew up in the Amazon jungles of Venezuela South America. As I began looking around at baby stuff, I was looking for the type of carriers that my Indian friends had used for so many years. Much to my dismay, I couldn't find them anywhere I didn't want one of these padded ones, 'cause they just seem so bulky and I wanted my new baby, when I have one, to feel my body up against them, not a massive pillow. I had just about given up hope when I saw your site. I was so delighted to see that you make them just like my Indian friends and now I know that when I have children, they can be held up against me even when my hands are busy doing other things. Thank you so much for supplying this important product!"
"I just wanted to thank you for such a lovely product. My fussy four month old has been living in my New Native® since she was four days old. After having her via c-section, I really believe that wearing her helped me heal faster and create a stronger bond between the two of us. People love seeing her in it too! Everytime I wear it women stop me and comment on it. I can't tell you how many women have copied the number down from the tag on the carrier!!! Kaela (my four month old) loves being so close to mommy, and I dread the day she is too big for it!!! Thanks!!!"
"I have a 3 month old and a 2 yr old. I used the New Native carrier with my 2 yr old (from about age 1 month - 20 months) and have now been using it w/ my 3 month old since birth. I thought I'd try it w/ my 2 yr old today, and guess what - she still fits- even in the cradle position (see photo). She weighs 30 lbs, so put this picture on your site if you can. Its great that she still fits and she loved looking at herself in the mirror in it!! Love your product,
Jennifer Jones, mom to Holly 3 mos. and Summer age 2
"I am writing to send my thanks for such a great product! I am a new mom and heard about your baby carrier from a girlfriend of mine. She had it for her daughter and loved it so I picked one up at the mother baby center of the hospital I gave birth at. The first time I used it was after a tough trip to Target where my baby cried the whole time sitting in his carrier while I shopped. I had to go to the grocery store afterward so I ran home and picked up the carrier in hopes I could get through the trip. I put him in it and hoped for the best. Amazingly he went to sleep immediately and I spent the whole rest of my time in the market with a huge smile on my face. I have since had six weeks of peace while I get out to eat, shop or run errands because of your carrier. I love it! I get compliments and questions about it every time I go out. Thanks again and here are some pictures of us."
Debby & baby Matthew
I love my New Native! I've used it with both of my children and am still using it with my 7 month old. He and I both love it! He gets to be carried, and I have an extra hand for my 2 year old.
