How is a ring sling quick you might ask? Putting on a ring sling is as quick as tossing your cross bodied purse on. Ring Slings go on the same way, from one shoulder to the opposite hip with a simple ‘tail’ (the part of fabric hanging towards the floor). Once baby is in the sling you can leave the tail to hang or tuck it up inside the sling, whichever you prefer.
Ring Slings have one of the smallest learning curves which make them great for first time baby wearers. Place the rings on the shoulder farthest from where you want baby. For me I liked having baby more to my left so the rings would go on my right shoulder.
Zolowear style ring sling. You can have the legs in or out once you become more comfortable with how to adjust and fit your right sling.
Hava style ring sling, to the hip carry, and for the advanced baby wearer (yes you will achieve this status very soon) the back carry.
The easiest way to learn how to use your sling to its fullest is to watch someone and get patient instruction. The Tummy2Tummy DVD is the perfect in home help for learning how to use your ring sling.
