Maya Wrap Lightly Padded Sling Review



A sling for babies weighing up to 45 pounds, the Maya Wrap Lightly Padded Sling wins applause because it's easy to use and gives privacy while nursing; the baby is carried in front. This model is made of breathable fabric and has pockets for keys and a cell phone.

One user at Cotton Babies says in a Maya Wrap Lightly Padded Sling review that it is a lifesaver, great for wearing it around the house and to run errands in. Other users on the site also really like this sling saying that it is very easy to use and convenient to breastfeed in. Baby wearers at Attached to Baby also like this low cost baby carrier saying the padded shoulder is very comfortable and soft, breathable fabric gets even softer with use.

A purely sling style baby carrier, the Maya Wrap Lightly Padded Sling (starting at $48, Amazon) can only be worn in the sling style or on the hip and the baby must be laid down or face in. It can hold babies up to 35 pounds and the ring on the shoulder makes it adjustable. The extra fabric from the ring can be used to cover mom and baby while breastfeeding. The material used is a breathable, woven fabric and the carrier has a pocket for keys and a cell phone. Although it is adjustable, it can be purchased in different sizes to accommodate different wearers.

We really like the padding in this sling and the fact that the extra fabric acts as a cover for breast feeding. How convenient! User reviews are great making us even more convinced that this sling is a good choice in cheap baby carriers.
