We have compiled a list of frequently addressed concerns parents should consider while baby ring sling shopping:

Is it healthy and safe to get a baby ring sling?

For centuries and across cultures, humans have been babywearing one way or another. With economic developments and prosperity, babywearing became endangered, in western countries in particular. Recently, the popularity of baby wearing has returned and fast becoming a global parenting trend. After research from popular attachment parenting experts like Dr. Sears shared the extensive benefits of babywearing, it has become more mainstream.

How can I safely begin babywearing with a ring sling?

Even a box of play dough can be a chocking hazard. Just like any other baby toy or equipment, you need to be well aware of the steps of usage to avoid hazards. Safety comes first, so it is important to have a good understanding adequate babywearing practices. We will elaborate on babywearing positions in our upcoming posts, so follow us closely!

How can I make sure my baby is safe and breathing fine while using a ring sling?

Be attentive and always make sure your baby’s head is above chest level and freely accessing air. Never let your baby face your chest, unless you are nursing your baby. Babies need to be high enough for parents to maintain eye contact with their bundle of joy and to give them a little extra kiss or cuddle every now and then.

Is there an easy and safe baby ring sling position?

For beginners, an easy, safe and comfortable position is when the baby’s knees are spread apart and along their belly and higher than their bottom. In other words position your baby like a frog or a baby monkey that clings on mama monkey, with their head above your chest. This way the baby is in a comfortable, supported and ergonomic position without dangling legs. Once you’re comfortable, there are other options you can try, stay tuned for more!

What if my baby slips when I wear my baby ring sling?

Firstly, it’s important to make sure you’re using the right type of fabric and ring sling. Secondly, make sure your fabric doesn’t bunch up. It’s extremely important to make sure you tighten the sling. Position your baby in an upright position with one arm and tighten the sling with another. We’ll be posting tutorials on how to babywear so keep reading our upcoming posts.
