Having a device that allows your baby to feed themselves in the infant stage, can really be a big relief for mom and dad every now and then. This sling attaches to any car seat, can hold any bottle and hangs at the correct position for feeding baby. It also encourages baby to start to hold the bottle on their own and does away with props or having to constantly reposition the bottle as baby moves.
