I know I've mentioned the ring sling in previous posts, but I never actually posted on it specifically. We loooove the ring sling. I don't know what we would have done without it. When Eloise was a few months old, it was the best way to calm her if she freaked out in public. Now I use it when we're out and about at the store or otherwise (confession...I've only been to the grocery store once since school started....thank you, husband), or simply when we're around the house and I'm trying to get work done. Slings don't take up much space in a bag, they're easy to adjust, and are incredibly versatile. I've gathered a tiny collection, all of which were made by either my sister-in-law or friend Lauren (she made the one below). Neither of these ladies are selling at this point, but I know you can find them on etsy, or you could purchase one of these beauties (via A Cup of Joe...she looks super stylin' in hers). Recommend! :)
I know everyone has their own preferences when it comes to baby-wearing (or not wearing). So, my small piece of advice: if you haven't figured out a style that works for you yet, I'd recommend trying a couple of different options out before you commit to one (find a cheap version, borrow from a friend). I was convinced I would constantly use certain styles that I did't/don't. And vice versa. Just a little tidbit for you.
