Ring slings are very useful. I like them for shopping for young babies. Slings are very easy to breastfeed in, meaning I can finish the shopping trip earlier as I don’t have to find somewhere to sit down. This makes life easier if my boys are with me as they hate shopping! Ring slings are also great for a toddler who wants up and down frequently as they are so easy and quick to use.
I have loaded a free pattern for a DIY ring sling in the patterns section of Hipababy. Enjoy! If you are new to ring slings don’t forget to read through the instructions before using the sling. Instructions can be found here.
I love to sew. I have five curious and active kids who keep me busy!
