Re: Anyone tried a Hotsling?

I ordered one and had to send it back for the smaller size. I was in between two sizes when I entered my info and sized up but I should ahve sized down. It was too big, I felt. I called themand thier customer service is great! She told me to wash it on hot and dry it (they rec line drying) and said it should shrink alot. I said that what if it was still too big, b/c I couldn't return it if I shrank it and dried it, but she said that they'd take it back since they were the ones that recommended that I do this. Well, it was still too big and they are exchanging it for me no problem! That's good business YOu could always buy one and try it - if it feels too big, I'd just return it for the other size, b/c I don't think it shrinks all that much - at least, not enough to shrink it a whole size if you know what I mean. also, you can take my words for what they are worth- I'm not really that sling knowledgeable. This is my first sling and my baby is 5 months. I thought he fit fine in the front (kangaroo?) carry, but I couldn't do the hip carry at all. He leaned too far back. He's 16 lbs, so its not like he's tiny. that's how I knew it was too big.
