I love Tulas, have four of my own when my husband cut me off from buying anymore for myself. So the loophole to that was buy one for a mom friend as an early birthday present since our littles share birthdays. Navigator got to her super fast and her, her husband, and their son just love it.
I have used ring slings and an Ergo in the past and finally decided to give Tula a shot and I am so happy that I did. I felt an immediate difference in weight distribution which makes long days of baby wearing a breeze. I also love the high backs on the Tulas, both of my boys are incredibly tall for their age and to have that extra support for them has been such a great feature to the design. The Navigator print is adorable and perfect, I worked in archives on map collections and my husband has worked at flight museums so to have a print that combines the two was a real treat!
