I recently received a coupon for a free baby sling from Seven Everyday Slings at www.sevenslings.com. I was excited about this because a baby carrier of some sort has become an absolute necessity since Malachi was born. Its impossible to keep my hands on the twins AND carry Malachi when I am out and about in public so I've been looking into slings. I thought this coupon was a God send!! All I had to pay was shipping and handling. Cool.
I get to the website and the slings are cute. And then I notice there are sizes for these slings. How do I know what size to order? Someone was very clever and included a tape measure that you could print off and even explained how to measure yourself so you would know what size to order. I did this and meticulously followed the directions and selected my color of choice in the appropriate size. I get to the "checkout" and I'm shocked to see that shipping and handling is $11.95!!! Seriously?! You could ship a sling to Japan for less than $11.95! But I decided to go ahead and order it because $11.95 is cheap for a sling . . . if it works.
Then I notice you can't return your product if its the wrong size unless you pay extra. Really? Well, I decided to pay extra. I little voice in the back of my head is telling me this sling isn't going to fit but I kept arguing with the voice because I used THEIR tape measure and followed THEIR directions!!
I was super excited when I promptly received my sling in the mail as promised. I pulled it out and noticed the exchange directions on the packaging. WOW!!! You needed a PHD in rocket science to accurately return the product if it didn't fit. And, of course, when I put the sling on and tried to put my newborn in it, it didn't fit. Great. So I do my best to follow the myriad of directions so they'll accept my return and requested a sling 2 sizes bigger than their measuring chart said I needed and I crossed my fingers hoping I did everything correctly.
Miracle of miracles, I received an e-mail several days later stating that my return had been accepted and the exchanged size would be shipped out shortly. Wonderful!!
Maybe not. I get the new sling and its still too small. And even though I paid extra to return it and paid $11.95 for shipping and handling for a scrap of material, the return policy states you can only exchange your sling one time. So I paid over $15 for a sling I can't use.
My advice, do not order this product. Its too expensive. The material is very stiff and looks like something I could whip together in 25 minutes on my own machine. The return policy is incredibly complicated and the sizing chart is WAY OFF. I promise, you can NOT have breasts and use this product.
Thumbs down for Seven Everyday Slings. :(
