    I am a long time “lover” of the Maya Wrap sling, especially the LP shoulder. I have many, many other slings and carriers, but I always reach for my Maya Wrap first! The fabric is so soft and gets only better with time, it’s very comfortable, and easy to wear and adjust. When I found out I was having another baby girl this year, I just had to have the beautiful Orchid purple sling on your website : Thanks so much for your great customer service!

    I LOVE my Maya Wrap!! I didn’t do any baby wearing with my first and quickly realized it’s essential with the second! I got this as an alternative to my ergo. I wanted something that would look nice when I was dressed in something other than yoga pants! I have gotten so many compliments (I got emerald and love the color) and my 6 month old loves it too! I thought I would just use it when I was out at someone’s house but I have been using it all the time, even at home! It’s easy to wash (which is good because my baby has a major spit up problem) and the pocket has been so helpful as well! I really can’t get enough of it and I love this special time with my baby. I will be so sad when he grows out of it! I do find after long periods my back gets tired so if I will be wearing it for more then 2 hours I still go with the ergo but for everything else I’m grabbing my Maya Wrap!

    I’ve been wearing my daughter in a ring sling since she was born. She’s 2 now, and I finally picked up a padded Maya wrap to try. I had heard many people disparage the padded shoulder, but I have been surprised how much I like it! Most of my sling stash is still unpadded shoulders – gathered, hybrid, pleated – but I’ve been surprised at how I like the padded shoulder. Cushy (obviously) and doesn’t restrict arm movement. But the fabric of the Maya wrap is the real winner – it’s handwoven, so it’s soft, moldable, and SO cozy. My daughter even tells me it’s cozy! She snuggles right down in and says “so cooozy!” And the extra width compared to standard width slings means my daughter can stay arms-in for awhile yet! I find she stays in the sling longer and is willing to have more snuggles if she is arms in. In a standard width sling, it’s just getting to be too narrow to comfortably allow arms in. So this sling is staying! Very cozy, and it’s cotton and easy care cotton is a must for me. I bought the Plum – perfect color for me!

    This sling is wonderful! I am a new mom of a beautiful girl who has decided that she wants to be held all day. A friend of mine gave me a wrap so I could get things done around the house with the baby. It turned me on to baby wearing, but I found the process of getting the wrap on and the baby in the wrap correctly to be time consuming. This sling is easy to get on and off, easy to get the baby in and out safely, feels very secure, and it’s comfortable. I am extremely happy with my purchase.

    I love my new Maya ring sling. I had been using a borrowed sling with my daughter since she was born and never really loved it because it was difficult to adjust the fabric through the rings. I decided to purchase this wrap mostly for the color (Emerald is beautiful!) and couldn’t be happier. The material slides so easily to adjust yet holds tight. I also love having a pocket to put a few necessary items in. We’re using it every day now and my girl loves be close to mommy yet also able to interact with the world.

    Absolutely LOVE our new Bright stripes Maya RS!!! We are owners of now 4 different carriers but this always ends up being my Go-To!! Thank you so much for the super quick ship, baby and I couldn’t be happier!!

  7. Jenni (verified owner)

    We love our maya rs!!! The emerald color is gorgeous, the fabric is soft, and it’s super easy to adjust. My lil guy loves to be worn, but my other carriers take a little while to tie/fasten before I’m ready to put him in. With the maya rs, I just throw it on and I can put him in it almost immediately. It’s comfortable for both me and my baby. Absolutely wonderful!! I can’t wait to try out nursing in it!

    I’m a new mommy and I’ve recently purchased my ring sling in January and I can honestly say I love it so much! It makes getting things done easier. Especially since this is my first baby, I never want to leave him alone or out of sight. I’ve used my ring sling even when I go out to run errands or out to eat at a restaurant over carrying him in a car seat or stroller. Not only do I enjoy my ring sling and find it so comfortable, my son does as well, he easily falls asleep in it. I do not regret spending a single penny on this at all. I highly recommend this product for any mommy and or daddy to use. Nonetheless, it’s very fashionable too! You won’t regret it! 🙂

    I have been wearing my 9 month old since he was born and was excited to find the Dorothy Maya. Unfortunately when I opened it, it is much darker than the picture, it almost looks like a different style altogether. I was assuming the bright colors not the shadowed ones I received. The product is five stars, the images are one and very misleading.

    • Sling Lady (verified owner)

      Hi Sabrina, I am so sorry to hear you are disappointed with the color of the Dorothy sling. We use the product pictures provided by Maya and I will definitely convey these concerns to them. We do take items back within 30 days for any reason, so I will email you about returning or exchanging this if you are unsatisfied. We want you to love your purchase from us!

    I wanted to update my review as I seem to not be able to remove my previous one. I ordered the Dorothy sling, and though it was not as pictured, it was still rainbow and I have fell in love with it. It is a dark rainbow, not bright like I had hoped, and I was offered a return for free and an exchange which is why I am updating this review. Customer service and shipping are amazing. I love my purchase, even if it wasn’t what I expected.

    • Sling Lady (verified owner)

      Sabrina, it’s so nice of you to post an update your review! We prefer to keep all reviews up on the site so that other customers get honest feedback when considering their own purchase. And I happen to agree with you that the Dorothy Maya Wrap is a much darker rainbow than the photo provided to us by the manufacturer, so that was great feedback! We have adjusted the settings on the photo to hopefully make it match the IRL sling a bit better.

    I’ve been wearing my baby (now 4 months old) in a Boba SSC but I wanted another carrier for some more carrying options. I love that I can wear my baby forward facing in the ring sling (she is so curious now and loves looking around) as well as wearing her tummy-to-tummy or on my hip. The ring sling is also much more lightweight and breathable than my Boba and will be good to use in the summer heat. And unlike the Boba, I can nurse easily in the ring sling, which is a great benefit. I also really like the pocket, which is big enough for a cloth diaper or two, so I don’t have to carry the diaper bag for small outings. Plus the sling beautiful. (For the record, I also got the “Dorothy” pattern, and I’d say the photo on the website is a good representation of the actual colors of the sling.) It took a few days for us both to get comfortable with the ring sling (and I’d recommend looking up videos on YouTube in addition to the videos on the included DVD) but it’s pretty straightforward to use once you get the hang of it–and my daughter is comfortable enough in it now to fall asleep.

    I didn’t think I’d love this sling as much as I do, I needed to return to work part time with my 9 week old and need some hands free time. I used a moby wrap with my first, but found the material a bit stiff and the whole wrap thing a bit tricky. My little one hated it. My second baby runs really warm so the moby didn’t work AT ALL, she got so sweaty. So I figured I’d try a sling. I found Carry Me Away and read some comparison blogs and thought I’d try the maya sling, which I find terribly easy to use, I love the material and my little one doesn’t mind it at all. I suspect she’ll like it better as she gets older but I am pleased with how well it works for a little baby too. Carry Me Away basically had the sling ready for me on the same day I purchase it. Which was awesome since I didn’t have to be wait. On both counts: buying the Maya and dealing with Carry Me Away: best decision ever.

    I’m a fan of baby wearing, but I had never used this one in the past. I love it! It’s very easy to adjust, stays in place, and is breathable for the summer coming. Purple is beautiful color!!
    Just FYI… The sizing is pretty accurate, but it was a little bigger than I expected. I loved that they had the size chart with the model, so I went with a bigger size bc I wanted it longer. Do if you’re deciding between 2 sizes, just to put that out there. I’m 5’9″.
    Shipping was really fast! Very pleased!

    I haven’t used it with the baby yet but I love the look of it. Tried it on and it feels great. Love the padded shoulder. Loosening and tightening seem to be fairly easy( I am sure once a baby is in there it will be a little more difficult but something I am sure to get use to). Quality of material is great. Love it so far.

    I love the color of the berries wrap. It is wonderful and easy to use for sure. People stop me everywhere and ask about it. The baby boy (5mo) loves it (he hated the Mobe, Bjorn, backpack, and normal sling with no rings. He rides, nurses, and sleeps in it. I take him to work so it is important that he is happy and calm. So easy to use it is amazing! However, if you are short do not get the XL. I read the reviews and it said if you were on the fluffy side to get the XL. I am right at 200 lbs and 5 feet tall and the XL nearly touches the ground. I feel a little like Dr. Who, but I love it so much I wear it all day everyday just about.

    • Sling Lady (verified owner)

      Hi Kelcie, thank you so much for leaving your review! We do take returns within 30 days so we would be happy to exchange out your XL Maya Wrap for a size that fits you better! I’ll go ahead and email you as well 🙂

    This is my 3rd child but my first carrier. Baby girl is 2 months old now and we just got the sling last week. It is beautiful and strong, thick fabric. I have no fear of her getting hurt being hands free. I would have, had i known, bought this earlier though. She isn’t use to being confined and keeps trying to break free. I think if we had started using it day one she would be used to it and we wouldn’t have a problem. But im not giving up. And i can’t wait for her to have enough head control to sit on my hip with it!
