Traditional Korean Baby Sling a Hit Overseas

The traditional Korean baby carrier blankets called podaegi are a hit among young hipster parents in the U.S. and elsewhere. Podaegi, which is basically a large piece of cloth with two straps, has become a popular item on online shopping sites. A U.S. online shopping site for young parents called togetherbe features photos of the Korean-style baby carrier and instructions on how to use it.

The website introduces it as a traditional Korean form of carrying babies close to a parent's body. It adds that podaegi "can be tied around the adult and baby" with the straps attached and "it's a perfect fit with every tie, resulting in superior carrying comfort for both mom and baby!"

Podaegi are also being sold on other websites including Cotton Cradles trading baby carriers of natural fabric. A search for podaegi on Google and other international portal sites leads to content uploaded by people who created their own podaegi along with photos or video clips of mothers carrying their babies in one.

  1. More and more people are becoming aware of the great benefits of parenting with a sling or carrier. The main problem that you will have is which one to select. There are hundreds of different styles and options and it can all get a bit confusing. The best thing to do is to attend a "sling meet" you will be able to see the vast variety but more importantly test a range of slings and carriers and speak directly to people who have been using the items most recently. Most people will buy several slings or carriers until the find the one that is most suitable this is because we all come with different body and baby shapes. Slings and carriers do take some practice there is a lot of video footage on you tube that demonstrates how to use properly which is also really helpful but also reputable sellers such as also offer extensive support throughout with a wide range that is competitively priced and stringently tested for durability of a wide range of fabrics.
