EastVan Babes' unique handmade tube slings make wearing your baby easy!
I designed my EastVan Babes tube slings especially with new parents in mind. Suddenly your arms are full of baby and the simplest task can seem ... well, impossible without some extra hands. Wearing your baby allows you to have free hands while continuing to meet your baby's need to be held.
Best of all, EastVan Babes tube slings are a breeze to use. (Life adjusting to a new baby can be overwhelming enough without dealing with complicated buckles and ties!) Put the tube sling over your shoulder and slip your baby in. Simple as that.
As a new mom, I really liked that I could breastfeed while standing, walking, or even shopping and no one was the wiser. I also loved how my babies would often fall asleep as soon as I put them in. Baby wearing simply made my life easier and my babies happier.
As parents we can instinctively feel how important and beneficial being held close is to newborn babies. Research backs up these instincts. Babies who are held often, grow faster and talk and walk sooner. They cry less, are sick less, and sleep more! Babywearing also brings parents and babies closer together, promoting healthy attachment.
After years of experimenting with different patterns and fabrics - I have found the durability, stretch and softness of fleece work best for tube slings. I have lots of fun choosing fabric patterns that are unique and appealing. I buy in small lots, so most patterns are available for limited runs only.
Correct sizing is very important to make sure it's comfortable for the wearer and safe for baby.

I recommend my tube slings for babies aged 3-4 months or up to 15lb. They can also be used as a hip carry up to toddler age. Tube slings are small enough to keep in your bag and can be a life saver when you have a toddler refusing to walk!
Wishing you many blissful hours of wearing your baby close.
