FAQ’s

Pura Vida Slings are made with natural, super-lightweight linen and bamboo fabrics, designed with warmer climates in mind and to help eliminate overheating both the carrier and baby. Our slings are both stylish and functional, always providing a 100% safe and secure carry. The lightweight aluminum rings are also of the highest quality, safety tested and compliant with the latest baby carrier safety standards.
We recommend using your Pura Sling from the moment baby arrives! Babywearing provides the most womb-like environment they could be in. Little ones love to be all cuddled in, heart-to-heart, so start carrying your new baby right away. However, please do consult your pediatrician if your baby is premature or weighs less than 8 pounds.
We recommend a weight range up to 35 lbs (approx 2yrs), this will ensure a comfortable carry for both you and baby.
Yes, that’s the beauty of an adjustable carrier. Our slings are about 7 feet long to ensure a comfortable fit for our beautiful plus size mommas. Petite wearers find that tucking any extra length left in the tail up and around the rings provides a softer support. Your Pura Vida Sling will be a perfect fit no matter your size!
Always ensure you create a nice deep seat for you little one. The bottom rail should be firm against the back of baby’s knees. Ensure your baby is in a squat or ‘M’ position with their bottom positioned lower than their bent knees. Please watch our video tutorial for more information
No. We do not recommend a forward-facing carry or back carry when using the Pura Vida Sling. Please only carry your baby as per the instructions included with your sling in the front carry or hip carry positions
You certainly can, and we encourage it! Pura Vida Slings are fully-adjustable so always ensure you have baby in view and airways are clear at all times. Always have your sling 100% secure. The tail of your sling is also the perfect cover if you wish to be more discreet in public.
The care instructions are sewn inside the little pocket of the carrier. We recommend putting the sling inside a large lingerie bag and then into the tub on a cold wash, gentle cycle (no bleach!). Tumble dry on a low heat and press with a warm iron if necessary.
