Baby Slings FAQs : Diaper Changing Station : Mamma's Milk
Can I Use A Credit Card from a country other than united states?
If your credit card is getting denied because the address doesn’t match the billing address, but you know your address is correct. What may be happening, is that our credit processing system requires what is called an AVS matching… or “address verification”. Many foreign credit cards do not support this type of verification, so to protect ourselves from fraud we cannot accept them. The easiest way to pay would be to use PayPal. After you have the product you would like in your cart, check out and enter your billing address as you normally would (don’t worry about the matching). Then on the next page, where it says “Payment method”, click “PayPal”. You should be able to check out there without any problems. You can pay using paypal, without even signing up for a Paypal account.
Is your ordering process and cart secure?
Yes, the sling ordering process is 100% secure. Any sensitive data is transmitted over SSL. You’ll notice the https on the URL and also the 'lock' icon showing in your browser on the cart pages.
Can I still process a payment using PayPal if I don’t have a PayPal account setup?
Yes you can. It is not necessary for you to create a paypal account. When you're brought to the paypal screen, you'll see a login area on the right. However on the left you'll see an area that says "Don't have a Paypal Account?" Click there and fill out your credit card info.
Do you take checks, cash or money orders?
At this time we do take checks via PayPal on the site. We don’t take cash or money orders.
Can I Order A baby Sling over the phone?

How do I order a sling as a gift?
If you’d like to send the sling as a gift, simply put the recipients name and address in the “shipping address” information. There is a small box you can check under the billing address to ship to a different address than the billing address. Put their name as the first line of the address. If you’d like a gift receipt to be sent with the order and/or want to include a note, indicate this in the customer notes section of the order and we’ll send a receipt with no pricing and can include a gift message as well.

How do I quiet my fussy baby?
It’s important that your baby is in a good mood before trying a sling for the first time. (Fed, dry, warm, etc.) As soon as you get the baby in the sling, take a walk outside! Believe it or not this is the most important part. The movement helps comfort baby and the walk outside is a treat. Once your baby is used to the sling, you can carry on as normal, but at first it is very important to move around. It is very important that your sling be the correct size. If it’s too small the baby may be too restricted. Too big, they may not be secure enough. The baby should be very snug inside (think fetal, like inside the womb), yet able to breathe freely. You may think baby looks squished, but it’s this snug, womb-like feeling that soothes and comforts, much the same way as swaddling. For more assistance, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more specific help.
Is my sling sling safe and the Velcro secure?
We use Aplix closures, a stronger, commercial grade type of “Velcro”. Your sling is made with two strips of Aplix that are each 6” long and 2” wide. When pressing the Aplix together, three things are very important: 1) there must be at least 3” on both strips (so at least 6” total), 2) the entire length of the fastened Aplix must be pressed together firmly, and 3) it must be worn with the Mamma’s Milk label out (not the padding out, as with some other slings). The Aplix has been tested to 15 pounds per square inch, so with 2” width multiplied by 6” length (3” on each strip), this gives 15 x 2 x 6 = 180 pounds total for the minimum setting. If the sling has less than 3” on both strips (for example, 1” on each strip will only provide strength for 30 lbs.), not pressed firmly over the entire length of the fastened Aplix (this causes uneven coverage and gaps) or is worn inside out (this changes the Aplix to peel strength rather than shear strength) this would be incorrect. Sort of like wearing a front pack without all the buckles fastened. If worn properly the Aplix will not come undone, however as an added safely precaution, there is a strip of fabric sewn into the sling holding both sides of the sling together should the Aplix come undone for some reason.
