About Us

Like many small business ventures, ours started with a necessity combined with a love. The necessity came when our second child was born. With my oldest only being 18 months old, and being a Mom of 2 under 2 I greatly needed an extra set of arms and turned to slinging to fill the need of caring for a newborn while chasing my rambunctious 1 year old. My search for slings left me wanting more. I needed color! I needed pizazz! I needed design! After much research, trials and errors I finally settled on the style of sling we now sell. What started as a need for my own sling, soon attracted comments and requests from family and friends. Those quickly turned into a small business venture that has taken us 2 years of growth and almost 1000 slings in sales! That's a lot of late nights of sewing! We've recently added to both our intimate family with the birth of another baby in June of 2008 and the expansion of our business opening an official website. And with new growth, comes more love for slinging. There is nothing like slinging a newborn, keeping them so close cuddled up to you.

About our Slings

A new Stylish twist on the traditional Ring Sling! Handcrafted in the Hawaiian Islands, this Kuddler is perfect for your Keiki ages Birth through Toddler(0-40 pounds) with no need to ever buy a bigger sling! Enjoy the comfort of carrying your Keiki hands free and in MANY different positions including:

  • Cradle
  • Hip
  • Tummy to tummy
  • Kangaroo
  • Side-sitting
  • Back
  • Discrete Breastfeeding


All Keiki Kuddlerz are made with 2 1/2 yards of either Cotton or Poly/Cotton Blend materials. Our Hawaiian Designs are locally made in the Hawaiian Islands! To preserve originality, these prints are only printed once by the manufacturer, then discontinued so if you see something you like, grab it now! It's not going to be around long!

Our slings fit women sizes 0 to 26 comfortably and men up to 6'2".  You or your baby cannot grow out of this sling! That also means that one sling fits all of baby's caregivers, Mom, Dad, Grandma whoever! They easily adjust to fit any body shape or size!

They are lined with a coordinating, oh-so-soft, 100% cotton flannel for Keiki's comfort. Lined??? YES!!!! Traditionally ring slings are not lined, however we were the first to add lining providing sturdiness and comfort while still remaining cool and breathable! The slings are Triple on triple stitched at the rings for strength.

We exclusively use colorful Aluminum SLING RINGS made exclusively for Ring Slings! Those have been tested to 250 pounds, and are super light in weight! Our special folding around the rings adds extra comfort while remaining slim on your shoulder (the fabric can still be spread out on your shoulder to distribute weight) and creates a perfect pouch shape for easy adjusting.

We hem our tails open to allow for maximum baby coverage but can tailor them closed for those interested. (see photos below and message us upon purchase).

Each sling comes brand new in it's own packaging with complete threading, wearing and positioning instructions.

Some gentle tips and reminders

  • Always monitor your Keiki's position in the sling.
  • Check the sling periodically for signs of wear. We will repair any sling that needs it free of charge!
  •  Slings come in a brand new unwashed condition and are pressed, when you first receive your sling it may seem a little stiff, wearing your sling and washing it will make it softer and easier to use. You can wash it right in your washer on cold or warm and dry in your drier! Iron if you want to.
  • Some babies and Mommies need a little sling experience at first, don't give up after the first try! Just like any new piece of baby equipment you may need a little practice finding what is comfortable for you and your baby. And DON'T hesitate to email us if you have ANY questions!  Enjoy and Aloha!
