Lower baby down onto your body, while continuing to encourage the spread-squat position. Open and extend the pouch fabric from the baby’s bottom and up their back, allowing baby to “sit” in the pouch like a hammock.
Reach between baby’s legs to pull the lower rail over baby’s bottom and in between your body and baby. Continue to tuck fabric from the lower rail under the baby’s bottom to create a secure and ergonomically correct seat, from knee to knee.
Fabric should extend from baby’s knees to their neck for full seat coverage and comfort. While supporting baby up from their bottom, pull down on the tail fabric to remove extra slack from The Sling. Begin with the inside rail to secure fabric around baby’s neck and shoulders.
Continue tightening The Sling from the inside rail, across the tail, to the outside rail. This will ensure a snug and smooth fit for wearer and baby. Adjust any areas for comfort, spreading the back pass and moving the shoulder accordingly, for evenly distributed tension around you and your baby.
To remove baby, loosen The Sling by pulling out on the lower ring and adding slack around the baby. Pull fabric pouch off baby while supporting from the bottom. That's how to use a ring sling. Questions? Contact Us. Our team of babywearing educators is happy to help you use your new baby carrier.
