Comfy, Cosy and Convenient
The Mamaruga Zensling is one of our most popular carriers for newborns, and gives a comfy fit even for the heavier toddler. It is adaptable and adjustable along both the height and width of the panel meaning you can create the perfect size for your child whether tiny newborn or older and larger child.
The use of stretchy wrap fabric (96% Cotton with 4% Lycra to give that stretch) makes this carrier beautifully soft and cosy and gives it many of the snuggling and moldable properties of using a stretchy wrap without the length of fabric that some people find difficult to manage. The straps, which are gently padded, can be worn cupping the shoulder to spread the weight of the baby which also helps to prevent the straps from shifting towards the neck of the adult carrying, which makes for a comfortable carry all round. It is easy to use, compact, and convenient with buckles to secure the carrier and webbing adjust to fit all sizes of adult and baby.
Adaptable for newborns and beyond
The Zensling panel is narrowed for newborns and smaller babies by ruching along the waistband, and is shortened using the webbing adjustment on the outside of the carrier panel.
The Zensling has an inbuilt sleeping hood, which can provide privacy and a little extra head support for sleeping babies, which is elasticated to fit to the perfect size for your baby, and can be secured on either shoulder strap to give support, whilst ensuring that the face and airways remain visible and clear.
Versatile Front and Back Carries
The Mamaruga Zensling can be used in a front or, for older babies, a back carry. In a front carry the straps are crossed diagonally on the back, which helps to spread the weight of the baby through the back of the adult carrying, and away from their shoulders. The straps can be spread so that they cup the shoulders.
In a back carry the straps can be worn rucksack style, using the accessory strap as a chest belt, or they can be crossed diagonally, or twisted together across the front, which gives a versatile range of options for your comfort and preference.
Dual adjust buckles for ease of use
The dual adjust straps on the Zensling make it easier to adjust as you are able to pull either forwards or backwards to tighten the carrier depending on which you find easiest to do. This helps to make it accessible for people who struggle with strength, flexibility and joint issues.
The Zensling is advertised as a carrier suitable from birth (3kg) and it is still a firm favourite with many people carrying larger babies and toddlers.
We love the Mamaruga Zensling, and so do our customers!
