Blue Batik Ring Sling

I wanted to keep this sling for myself, but I decided that I cannot keep every sling that I like. I'd have about 15 by now because most of what I make is what appeals most to me. I love the blue batik fabric!

Ring slings are so versatile. They are one size fits all so you will really only need one sling, although I like to have a pouch sling around too. I like to mix it up. Back to my point, you can use this sling regardless of any changes in weight you may experience. I personally gained A LOT of weight during my pregnancy (bed rest will do that to you) so I would have gone through 3 sizes of pouch slings by now. My ring sling got me through until I got closer to my pre-pregnancy size. Plus Grammy, Daddy, big brother/sister and any other caregiver can wear your sling while caring for baby. The tail is also great for discreet breastfeeding, if you're into that kind of thing :) (I do it right out in the open. Aiden will not be covered and I feel like I am making a positive statement about the wonderful things I am doing for my son, and hopefully helping to make breastfeeding less taboo.)

Great Post! I love ring slings...I carried our youngest son in one constantly from the minute we picked him up in Taiwan(adopted 07/206). He was a year old and pretty heavy but it was no problem in a sling. There is nothing like wearing your babe to promote attachment/security! I am always drawn to the clean lines of the pouch but really like the ring style best.
Your slings are beautiful!
