A good wrap conversion ring sling (WCRS) is seriously worth it’s weight in gold… maybe even more. Once you find that sweet spot, you will wonder how you ever lived without one, or two… or three… in your stash.
Ring slings are also perfect for hot weather, as you only have one layer of fabric around you and baby, and fold up nice and small so you can easily throw one in your purse or diaper bag for emergency “uppies”!
Keep one in your car, too for throwing on for quick trips into the grocery store or school. Never be caught without a carrier again!
An added bonus, you can “dress up” any outfit with a beautiful ring sling! Same old tanktop and jeans, suddenly becomes a little more elegant with a long rainbow tail hanging to the ground!
A PAXmommy favorite, we hope YOU all to find the love, too!
One of the biggest reasons we love WCRSs is that they are so extremely versatile, and can be worn comfortably with any age (or sized) baby, toddler, or even tired preschooler!
To ensure a comfortable fit for everyone, it is important that you follow these steps:
- place baby high up over your shoulder, with rings behind you,
- pull the tail of the ring sling good and tight in one big fluid pull,
- place baby into the sling on your chest (right under your chin),
-make sure that your sling is spread evenly over your shoulder, and is not twisted in the back,
-rings should be flat against your chest, about where you would wear a corsage,
- tighten everything strand by strand to make sure all of the slack is out,
-to get a good seat, reach down and pull up the fabric between you and baby,
- make sure your baby is sitting knee to knee with knees higher than bum in “M” positioning,
- slowly adjust the rails little by little to make sure anything that has come loose, is tight again.
Getting a ring sling tightened properly, whether wearing rings on your front, or your back, takes practice.. . you may need to repeat a few of these steps, but please don’t give up and do not be afraid to ask for help! If you are still struggling, and do not have a local babywearing group to ask, feel free to email us at help@PAXbaby.com with photos and we can help pinpoint where you may be struggling.
