Our View

The Buzzidil baby carrier has a brilliant adjustable design, with drawstrings at the for height and width, giving the ability to match the size of the carrier exactly to the size of your child.The height of the panel can also be supplemented by buttoning the hood in a half way position and tightened with drawstrings if needed.

The Buzzidil carriers have many other well designed features: there are two sets of buckles to attach the shoulde straps into,so the carrrier can be buckled into the waistband for smaller babies, making the carrier slightly shorter and allowing the baby's back to curve in the natural rounded shape - the position of the straps is similar to the shape of a front carry in a woven wrap or the placement of the straps in a mei tai. For older children the shoulder straps buckle into the side of the panel, similar to other buckle carriers, bringing the height of the panel slightly taller and giving good support.

Find out all about Buzzidil.








Always check the manufacturerƒ??s instructions, but in general, 100% cotton baby carriers can be washed at temperatures up to 60 degrees centigrade on the delicate cycle. It is best to use a liquid detergent that is free of optical brighteners, bleach or softening agents.

It should be noted that frequent washing is likely to fade the carrier, and so affect its resale value, so we ask that you do not wash our rental slings unless needed.




The standard Buzzidil is recommended from 2 - 36 months, so is really long lasting. The weight range is from 7 - 35lbs.

An XL Buzzidil can be used from around 8 months and will last until approximately 48 months.




You can use a Buzzidil to carry your baby on your front with baby facing in, or on your back.

You cannot use it to carry baby on your front with baby facing out or on your hip.

Rental Period


When you are renting a sling for the first time you will get 2 days added on to the end of your rental period to allow for posting so that you hopefully get the full amount of time requested, actually with the sling.

So, if you choose a 2 week rental starting on the 1st of the month, your hire end date will be the 16th (14 days plus 2 days extra)

The sling will be posted to you on the 1st, hopefully arrive (dependent on Royal Mail) the 2nd and you will need to post it on or before the 15th to ensure it arrives with us by the 16th.

If you are extending your hire then no extra days are added, so a 2 week extension means that the sling will be due back 14 days later than originally agreed.

These are the steps needed to rent this carrier:

This sling is very adjustable around the baby so they were snug and cosy, but also has fairly simple adjustments for the adult so it was easy to use. I like the fact that the back panel was made from sling fabric so it was soft and mouldable, this was it's main difference from other slings in my opinion. The waist strap was firm, but you could still sit down without it digging in too much which is better than some other slings. My baby was comfy, and I found it easy to use and had no aches or pains from it! Ordering was very simple, and I found the staff were very helpful - both with advice on slings and in general I had an issue with my paypal and they helped me fix it straight away! I would definitely use them again.
