Soul Slings Flyaway

  • 100% cotton – 280 gsm
  • $
  • Machine woven
  • Support: Above average
  • Best for: All babies
  • Carries: Great with all!

Soul Slings is a great company, based out of India, that has extremely affordable baby carriers. They have woven wraps, SSCs (soft structured carriers), the Soul Tai (which is their version of the mei tai), and ring slings. They’re woven in a mill in Southern India, that only uses wind and solar energy. All carriers are made in house in Bangalore, India. They first popped up on my radar, almost a year ago. I was contacted by Soul to host their latest jacquard wrap. Flyaway and I said yes. Prior to this, I hadn’t tried one of their jacquard wraps yet.

Flyaway is 100% cotton, which means it’s supportive. There’s a bit of cush in the shoulder passes that I did. I also had no issues with digging at all. There’s a tiny bit of bounce, which helps get the passes exactly where I need them. I had Tot up in a double hammock, multiple times, and I had no issues keeping him up there for hours at a time. Flyaway is a pretty solid wrap. It was a little tough, at first, but I can see that it still needs to be broken in some.

I love the texture of the wrap. The pattern on the wrap pops out and really helps keep it grippy. I had no issues with my passes sliding down. I did need to tighten each rail appropriately, to make sure that I lost some of the extra fabric that I had. It was a bit cumbersome, but I feel with more use, it’ll be easier to get the passes where I need them.

This is a workhorse wrap. I wouldn’t consider this a delicate wrap. It is easy to use and easy to wash. It’s not one to pick up dirt or stains easily. The wrap was a bit warm, which I liked since the weather was turning. But just airy enough, that I didn’t feel overwhelmed. Right now, I would say that the wrap holds its shape well, but working with it will help loosen it up.

I really enjoyed having this wrap here. I really loved this shade of yellow. It was a great addition to my line up. It’s soft, cuddly, and just fun to use.

  • I volunteered in my daughter’s classroom for Thanksgiving. I helped on the food line so I had to tie Dumpling to my back and make turkey sandwiches. We do teach the kids that we don’t actually celebrate Thanksgiving, and the teachers discussed the truth with the kids. I’m glad I didn’t have to step in like previous years 🤦🏽‍♀️⁣
My tote bag from @shopkindredtogether is my favorite though. I’m able to fit everything in there. A quick link to the shop is in my profile & you can use code APRILOCT to save 💰 ⁣

  • We were so lucky to be able to check out the Flip & Spin for the Win bundle - thanks to @PowerYourFun. The bundle included Laser Launchers (which I can’t pry out of Tot’s hands), the Mini Cyclone Stunt Car, and Turbo Tops Gyro Cars - which you see pictured here. These are our favorite part of the bundle, the kiddos are constantly try to do tricks with them. ⁣
Thank you Kaliber Global Toys for this awesome gift! #sponsored #PowerYourFun #TurboTops @apexdropofficial
  • Yesterday was my birthday! I’m thirty-something (the something is silent 🤪) and it was a good day. A made it back from a 10 day trip just in time to celebrate. The kids were so excited to make mom’s day fun. ⁣⁣
My sister always grabs a red velvet bundt cake for me and I love it. It’s my favorite. My grandmother used to bake me a red velvet cake every year when I was younger and it’s important to me to have it. ⁣
Here’s to another revolution around the sun ☀️
  • I posted about the awesome @pjmasks PJ Masks Seeker about a month ago. I grabbed it at @target and kept it hidden until it was Tot’s birthday. He had already completely forgotten about it & it was a wonderful surprise to open on his day 🎂 He’s been playing with it nonstop and his sisters keep trying to get a turn. ⁣
Thank you to MomSelect for gifting us this toy. It’s the perfect toy for this @pjmasks obsessed family. #ad⁣

  • My middle child. My wild child. He’s officially 5 years old and 1 day. I tried to make sure he had a fun filled day yesterday and now I’m exhausted. This year he decided he didn’t like cake and asked for donuts instead 🍩 ⁣
Happy birthday Tot 💕
  • We saved this Star Wars coding kit for Tot’s birthday and it was a hit! He was totally interested in putting it together and making things work. He’s my little tinker. ⁣
#ad - Thank you @teamkano for the gift!⁣

  • Pretending there are fall vibes with 90° weather 🍁🍂🎃⁣
We melted at the pumpkin patch this weekend. Now we are hiding from smoke and hoping our power doesn’t go out. ⁣
How’s your weekend treating you?
  • Prism Black went live today and I’m so excited for them to get their new homes. This kaleidoscope weave is so grippy and textured. It really locks those passes in tight. 🌈 💎⁣

  • Corn mazes are our favorite 🌽 We try to stop at one every year and grab some photos at the pumpkin patch. The kids love the corn pit. I love listening to them get along and discuss the corn maze map and answer the trivia so we know which way to go. Such a great adventure. ⁣
