Are people insane? The Cashmere Baby Sling that costs only $349 is INSANE. Sure, I'm positive Cashmere feels great to mom and possibly to baby. But we are talking about a sling, something, that in my experience gets gnawed on, spit up on, drooled on, dropped on the floor of the car, stepped on by the dog and just generally dirty. CASHMERE?! WHAT?!
In fairness, I have several baby carrying devices that were purchased because I just wasn't sure what we would like. We have a classic Bjorn that Little Bug loved for a while but that he doesn't fit so well anymore. We also had a misbegotten Sherpani carrier, purchased on someone's rec but we don't love it. Then I bought a $30 sling at the Pasadena Flea Market. We've used it a bit, but Little Bug gets a little "Momma's Boobs Too Close and SMOOSHING ME!"
Finally we found the Ergo carrier, which I adore. It's not particularly easy to get on alone and it's a little inelegant looking. But it's made of some sort of poly canvasy type fabric and soft cotton, which is lovely because Little Bug often turns his head to gnaw on some piece of it. It gets dropped into the machine regularly.
Anyhow, I guess my greater point is that the many carriers littered throughout the house and our carrier of choice show that we are not above ridiculously expensive purchases in pursuit of the baby carrying device. But a cashmere sling just seems to be in the beyond category.
But, to buy something made of cashmere that a baby is supposed to use seems insane to me. Insane and really upper-class wealthy-woman indulgent.
