Baby Carriers? Pouch Slings or Ring Slings

I simply love wearing my babies. With the first one I had to carry around his heavy CAR SEAT, no wonder is call that! I'm not a CAR! It was a nightmare, soon, I just decided to carry him straight in my arms ...with baby bag and all...not too fun!
With my second child I discovered the delightful blessings of a ring sling. Heaven on earth! Calm baby, free hands, and only my baby's weight on my body. Besides I could keep my two hands on my 2 year old son!
Since then, I started sewing them in all colors to match me or my hubby. Since then is just a compulsion. I just have to have them or help others to know how great they are.

Ring Slings have more flexibility, one sling can be used by different people and can easily adjust to your growing baby.With the same ring sling I could carry my 4 month old and 4 year old. It is important to give yourself some time to learn how to adjust the rings and the fabric. Once you get some practice, it will become that extra pair of hands you were hoping to find somewhere!

The rings may look scary for some people but believe me!, you will get to learn how to use them fast. Practice in a quiet place, when the baby is calm, changed, and happy, hopefully just you and the baby. Too many people around may get you or the baby a little agitated.

The tricky part is that preferably, they should be especially designed for your size. Too small, baby won't be comfortable, too big, mommy won't be comfortable.

Just make sure you measure yourself from one shoulder to the opposite hip bone to determine if you are XS (21"- 22"), S (23"- 24"), M (24"-25"), L (26"- 27")or XL (28"-29"). Pretty much all manufactures follow the same measuring table. Oh, when using the tape measure, make sure it lays over your bust, if falls in between you may get the wrong measurement and then be in for some trouble!

This sling is great for newborns and in my experience can be adapted to your growing child for up to 6 to 9 months.
