Ring Slings

A ring sling is generally made from woven wrap material. It has 2 rings sewn onto one end. The fabric is looped around and threaded through the rings.

There are a few different types of shoulder to a ring sling:

Gathered – perfect for broad shoulders
Pleated – perfect for narrow shoulders
Hot dog – perfect for petite mamas

Finding the right shoulder type for you can take a little trial and error!

 

Ring slings may seem really easy to use but some people can struggle to get them to work for them. Having someone there to show you how to get it comfortable for you and baby is so much easier!

Just to add to the fun, some ring slings are made with a certain shoulder in mind. For example, if the pattern on the fabric has a right way up then it should only be worn on a certain shoulder to be sure that the pattern isn’t upside down.

Ring slings are great for quick and up downs. Plus, they’re small and light so you can leave them on in between wearing or they fold up small enough to stuff them into your bag!

You can do more carries with a ring sling than you think: front {great for tiny newborns}, hip and back!
