Who Needs A Stroller? Gwen Stefani Gives Baby Kingston A Stylish Ride

10/25/2006 at 06:00 AM ET

More than one reader asked us: “Do you know what kind of slings Gavin and Gwen have been using? It looks as if baby kingston is very secure.”

It’s true! Baby Kingston does always looks comfy and adorable in the slings parents Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale tote him around in. Now, your little tike can be too. Gwen’s funky reversible leopard/orange one from The Rockin’ Baby Shop, is totally sold out for now, but check out the others they do have by clicking here. FYI, Gwen is in good company– Angelina Jolie and Courteney Cox are also fans of the Rockin’ baby slings. Gavin’s simple black one and Gwen’s white floral one (not pictured) are both from the OOPA Baby Shop, whose celebrity fans also include Kate Hudson and Brooke Shields. Kingston might be spotted in his slings for awhile since they are sturdy enough to hold infants and toddler. Could Hollywood be saying good-bye to strollers? — Andrea DeSimone

I have an Oopa Baby sling and I LOVE mine… and so does my son. The plain black one is nice, but I have this gorgeous silk shantung one in turquoise. There are so many gorgeous ones… it was hard to decide. And I love how I can still feel fabulous, instead of ridiculous, while I carry and bond with my baby.

Wow, that other woman has a 2 year old in a sling? I think that’s too old. Overall, I think slings are ok. I used to see a lot of Asian women wearing them on their backs and I didn’t like that because the babies head would be dangling and I felt sorry for them. But the way Gavin and Gwen are using them looks fine.

The lead in about ‘this celeb uses a stroller vs. this celeb wears her baby’ is kind of silly.

I’ve used slings, other carriers and strollers. I bet that many of the mothers mentioned, like Gwyneth and Gwen also use a variety. IME carriers and slings worked best when my son was an infant or at crowded events or on public transportation.

LOVE the slings!!!! It’s a great way to bond with baby. Little Kingston can feel mommy and daddy’s heartbeat and the warmth from their bodies. Later for a stroller, what they’re doin’ is beautiful. When my daughter was younger, I carried her around in her Baby Bjorn all the time. Now, she’s older and heavier and the stroller’s necessary as I almost always have bags too. Long story short, good for them!

I think it is so awesome that Gwen and Gavin have their son with them almost everywhere they go, unlike some celebrities that shall remain nameless. Oh yeah, and I love the sling.

Awesome, much easier than having to say excuse me to everyone anytime you go somewhere.

I think is good for the baby to be close to his mother plus is also good for her to be as close to the baby as she can on her days off before she gets working again

Why do some people (or commenters here) have such issues with older babies or toddlers being carried in a sling? Children don’t stop asking to be picked up after 12 months. Anyone who has tried one and can use it properly would know that they make carrying a heavy child EASIER as they completely take the weight off (and they can absolutely hold the weight). I don’t know why people think some kids are “too old” to be held, in arms or in a sling.
And I wish Gwen would learn how to use it more securely.

Ok, she is referring to my comment. But again, a two year old in a sling?? A two year old is a toddler. If you are still picking them up all the time, that is not good!
Watch the “Supernanny” and she’ll tell you the same thing.

And for the life of me, I don’t understand why mothers insist on bringing their kids shopping and everywhere else to do errands! Kids get bored and tired. To sling them and carry them around for your convenience is selfish. My mother told me when I was young, she NEVER brought me with her clothes shopping. Ok, maybe to the laundromat or supermarket only because she had to, but I have seen women bring their kids to the nail salon!! That’s selfish!! And Gwen bringing her baby on tour? C’mon, think of the baby.
Wouldn’t he rather be in his nursery that flying around the place all the time?
