My NEWBORN is CRYING, I have to tend to my other young child, I have housework to do! How will I ever handle it all? Use of one of our baby ring slings is an excellent answer to help you snuggle with your baby AND give you the opportunity to do other things…housework, shopping, computer work, breastfeed your little one, etc.
Baby slings (aka: baby carriers slings or baby ring slings) have been used for centuries and helps to calm and soothe a baby. It allows your baby with the remarkable opportunity to feel and hear your familiar and comforting heartbeat just as he/she had for the nine months in your cozy womb.
There are so many reasons why our Baby Slings are useful. The obvious being that you can carry baby with you easily and comfortably. We have done several years worth of research to find out why the ring slings are beneficial to both mom (or dad, grandma, etc.) and to baby.
Here are some of the reasons:
1 It is truly a hands-free way to carry baby. You can carry baby securely against you while doing the laundry, working on your computer, or simply just walking.
2 Promotes a healthy bond between you and baby.
3 Promotes breastfeeding. You can very easily nurse baby discreetly while baby is in the sling.
4 It is very easy to use. Just slip the sling over your head and rest on your shoulder. Put baby in between you and the sling, then just pull the fabric through the rings to tighten and you’re done. That simple!
5 Great for dads, grandparents, and all other caretakers of baby
6 Baby will feel very secure and safe next to you, hearing your comforting heartbeat, just as baby did for the months she/he was inside of you.
7 Great for colicky/fussy babies. These ring slings promote sleep. Most newborns fall asleep within ten minutes in the ring sling.
8 – You can take a sleeping baby out of the ring sling without waking him/her. Just simply loosen the sling at the rings.
9 Some front-style commercial carriers sold in stores, can be stressful to a newborn’s spine. Slings have been tried and tested in most other countries for centuries, and cradles the baby’s back and spine in the correct position.
The bottom-line is that baby needs your contact, warmth and security; our baby slings provide a way for this to happen.
Nursing Hold Position
Put baby in the snuggle hold. Support baby`s weight and loosen the fabric slightly.
Turn baby so that he/she lays tummy-to-tummy with you with their head on the opposite side of the rings, in the nursing position, and flare out the fabric that is under the baby’s head (so the head is supported by the fabric). Tighten sling if needed.
The tail of the fabric can be used as a shield, so that it will be very easy to nurse in public discreetly.
For toddlers or bigger babies, their feet will be hanging out of the sling – Just keep baby’s bump at the lowest point with his thighs alleviating upwards.
When your baby has finished nursing, place him/her back into the snuggle hold
Note: Your baby sling can easily be also used to bottle feed your bundle of joy!
