THE Ring Sling Solution

I invite you to rethink ring sling carries as a modified torso carry. Here's why.Babywearers are plagued by a host of fiddly problems while wearing ring slings. Almost all of them can be nipped in the bud with a single solution. Simply tighten the sling much more tightly than you might have previously thought necessary before shimmying and curling your little one down into it.*So simple! How could this help?Problems tightening? If there is no need to retighten, then there are no problems. No tips and tricks needed.  Rings ending up on your sternum?

The daily grind of regular to-dos looks different for each of us, but when you have a baby or toddler in a woven wrap or ring sling, these things are made glorious.
