Sling Carrier Product Review: New Native Baby Carrier

BB Rating
What's This?


A EXCELLENT-our top pick!
B GOOD-above average quality, prices, and creativity.
C FAIR-could stand some improvement.
D POOR-yuck! Could stand some major improvement.


Price: $50.

Maximum weight: 35 lbs.

Comments: New Native’s focus is eco-friendly slings made from mostly organic cotton. This sling is styled as a one-piece pouch with no adjustments. Check the size chart carefully! That lack of adjustment is a negative here and parents complain that the sizes run small. If you hope your partner will also use a carrier, you likely won’t be able to share one as the sizing is so different.

An infant support pillow can be purchased separately to improve fit for both preemies and newborns. Online instructional videos are available although the quality of the videos is rather poor. Recently, we noticed New Native has a factory seconds option with carriers priced as low as $26 while “gently used” carriers are as little as $20.
