Ring Slings part 1: What is a ring sling? Who would like a ring sling? What kind of ring sling should I buy?
Ring slings can be used from newborn to toddlerhood plus as long as the fabric is rated for that weight. A newborn may be happy snuggled up tummy to tummy for a long time! Baby can snuggle and nurse easily this way. A toddler may just want a quick pick-me-up hip carry for a few minutes before bounding off to the next adventure, and a ring sling is simple enough to adjust that it works well for this as well!
Ring slings fold up nicely in a diaper bag or purse and make great “backup” carriers for the car for errands and small trips as well as around the home.
You might like a ring sling if you:
- Want something compact
- Want simple carry options
- Want something that can be used from the first days of life
- Want something that can be used for a long time (2 years+!)
- Want something that can be quickly taught “well enough” for others to carry baby

This style of carrier might not be for you if:

So, it’s understandable that the alternative of inducing naturally can sound pretty appealing.
In general, the safest approach for mom and baby is to wait for labor to happen spontaneously. ...
