Friends with babies have informed us that slings are one of the best ways to transport a baby on the go, or keep them with you as you do stuff around the house.. Babies are kept snugly against you and can hear your heartbeat and voice, which often (yessss!) lulls them to sleep. We recently found Sakura Bloom Slings ($38-198) and were intrigued by the variety of colors and fabrics available, from Irish linens, Indian dupioni silks, and wild southeast Asian silks. There are plenty of colors that even a guy will be okay with wearing - and, really, once you tell him that there is no sexier sight than that of a man cuddling a baby, he'll be clamoring to wear these.
