Ring Sling

Post  Admin on Sun Apr 12, 2009 5:49 am

I use a huggababy ring sling. It is so convenient and easy to get baby in and out. I really can't be doing with clipping or wrapping baby every time I want to get her out. The only thing I haven't figured out is how to get baby breastfeeding in there. I did it once in the pub with her bottom half sticking out, lol. If anyone knows how, please let me know.

I don't have any experience of feeding baby in a sling. I have always imagined that the baby would have to be laying across you in a papoose sort of sling??
I have a Kipling baby carrier but Lucinda doesn't like it. I think she might feel a bit claustrophobic in it as it is quite cumbersome. It might be better when she's bigger. I have heard about a shop where you can pay the purchase price as a deposit and take a sling away for a week to test drive it. Then if you're satisfied you keep it and if not you just try another one until you find one you like. So I think I'll have to do that. I really could do with one as she likes to be carried around.

There is a fornightly sling meeting in our area where you can borrow slings. I've never been there myself but a lady from my baby group told me about it. It sounds like a great idea.

slings and breastfeeding.

Post  queen caggy on Mon Apr 13, 2009 10:56 am

i have a babasling and i dont unclip it each time i just pop it on over my shoulder then slide baby in.
When he was smaller i did pop him inside then slide myself into it and he would be nice and comfy. I have also fed him in the sling and while walking too. Basically his legs poke out the end but he is laying flat tummy to mummy.
hope this helps a little.

also search (google) sling meets and find your local one.

I'll have to have a good practice when she's in a good mood. That's the problem poor things don't want to be shoved about in a sling so you can't really practice easily.

I've adjusted it and seem to have figured it out, she's feeding in it now and looks very comfy. Very Happy

This is the sling I have incase anyone is interested. http://www.huggababy.co.uk/Default.aspx?tabid=127&language=en-GB I would definately recommend it. It takes a bit of practice, (or maybe that's just me, lol) but once mastered it's great.

I have a Prémaxx ‘Sling’ Baby-Bag ( http://www.johnlewis.com/230306243/Product.aspx ) it's easy to use and I like the fact that there are pockets however it's quite padded and I wonder if it is not going to be too hot for summer time although there is no real summer here in Glasgow. I hardly ever carry my baby though as I was not allowed to carry anything in the first 6 weeks after my section and I also told my fiance that I carried the baby for 9 months and now it was his turn. He loves it at it is in deed a bit masculin. Reuben loves it too even though at times he looks a bit twisted he doesn't seem to be uncomfortable.
