Ring Slings

A ring sling a length of cloth and metal (such as aluminum) or nylon rings. There should be no visible join in the ring as this is a weakness making the sling unsafe for babywearing. One end of the cloth is sewn to two rings. A ring sling uses dynamic tension so that when the baby is in the carrier, the baby's weight puts tension on the fabric. The combination of fabric tension, friction of fabric surfaces against each other and the rings combine to "lock" the sling in position. The cloth wraps around the wearer's body from shoulder to opposite hip and back up to the shoulder, and the end is threaded through the rings to create a buckle effect.The baby sits or lies in the resulting pocket. Once a sling is threaded, it can be taken off and put back on without rethreading. A threaded sling forms a loop of cloth. The wearer can put one arm and the head through the loop of cloth to put the sling back. This type of sling can adjust to different wearers' sizes and accommodate different wearing positions. Ring slings are highly adaptable and most care givers can wear a "one size fits most" size.
