Comfy Joey Review & Giveaway *CLOSED*



I'm all about babywearing. I really wish I had known about it with Avery though. She was colicky and it would have made everything 100 times better. Instead I was bolted to the chair or couch holding her most of the day because I couldn't put her down.
I'm not totally complaining because this is how I spent my afternoon

It would have been really nice to have a carrier though!!!

I received a lovely one from Comfy Joey for review and I just can't wait to use it. 
I received the Lemon Grass Linen Ring Sling. 

 Instructions right on the tag.

I have a couple ring slings already but haven't ever really gotten the chance to use them. I've tried them on with Avery, but don't wear her anymore, so I never got the chance to use mine. I just cannot wait for this babe to get here so he can wear all these in. 
How comfy does this newborn look?
Pretty darn comfy right?
I want my newborn to be that comfy!!!

I think I got my sling in a size Small. It is a bit longer than an X-Small, but not super long. A Medium would have been good too though. The great thing about a ring sling is it adjusts to anyone. If you're a smaller frame though an XS or Small would be great for you because of the length. If you're a larger frame the L or XL would be great!
So I went with a Small and it fits me great! 

I've tried Avery in this sling and she fits pretty great in it. The tail is a bit shorter than I'd like, but everyone is comfy in it and it will be a while before I'm wearing a 30 pound toddler in my sling (if ever). 

Overall I love it though! It's a great sling. The linen is thick, but it's not too warm. Linen keeps you cool in the summer and warm in the winter so this is great for all season use. 

She has MANY other slings to choose from in every color you can imagine. 
This was my second choice
COMFY JOEY FUNDRAISER

Life can deal a twist of fate that no one can plan for or imagine.  Bruce Rosenberg (40) a father of two precious children (Ella 13, Lucy 5) and husband to Julie; has been diagnosed with Stage 4 Melanoma Cancer.  This aggressive form of cancer is considered terminal in most cases, but Bruce is not most people.  He is young and has been in great health to this point.   That is until his life was turned upside down.

A little over 6 months ago he was diagnosed with this cancer and currently he has undergone 3 major operations to remove the affected areas, but the cancer is still advancing.  Out of work, his company has not fired him but has discontinued his benefits; leaving the family to have to pay for Medical (Cobra Coverage) and his life insurance on their own – this amounts to $1,500 per month above and beyond their normal household expenses.

Furthermore they are seeking treatment in one of the nation’s leading cancer centers, Moffitt Cancer Center, Tampa FL.  Being over 800 miles from home does take a toll on the family and the household finances.  Bruce is fighting for his life and is undergoing a trial treatment called IL2.  Although this treatment is dangerous, it does hold hope for a cure.   Both Bruce and Julie need to focus on this fight and not the funds to keep their home and life a float, and that is where you can help this family in need!

From September 10th through the 30th, ComfyJoey.com along with participating retailers will be offering 15% off all orders with coupon code BRUCE. The 15% you save is the same amount we will match with a monetary donation to Bruce Rosenberg and his family. Get a gorgeous sling at a discount and help a loving family focus on the FIGHT.

Price: $67.50! Which is VERY reasonable!

Overall: *****

*Disclaimer* I received an item directly from Comfy Joey in exchange for a review. I was not paid to try out these products*
A big thank you goes out to Comfy Joey for allowing me to review this product and offering a giveaway
