For babywearing newbies, the amount of slings available can be a little confusing, but don’t worry! Today, we’ll be showing you a ‘cheat-sheet’ for all of the various baby slings that we currently have available, to help you make a decision as to what one is best for you and your baby.

Mei Tai Sling: 

  • Suitable for – Birth to 35lbs
  • Included carrying positions – 3
  • Strap length – Waist: 180cm, Shoulder: 150cm each
  • The Mei Tai sling is our most popular, as it is so versatile.  It comes with instructions for three ties, but so many more are possible. We also stock a huge range of patterns, all of which can be reversed into plain black.
 

 

 

Mei Tai With Hood and Pocket: 

  • Suitable for – Birth to 35lbs
  • Included carrying positions – 3
  • Strap length – Waist: 180cm, Shoulder: 150cm each
  • This is a great new version of our Mei Tai sling, perfect for rainy weather! Identical in every way, these come with a removable hood as well as a convenient pocket. The hood is secured with four poppers, so it’s easy to put it away when the sun comes out!
 

 

 

Ring Sling: 

  • Suitable for – Birth to 35lbs
  • Included carrying positions – 2
  • Strap length – 180cm from the ring to each end.
  • Our gorgeous ring slings are ideal for babies, and you can also breastfeed while wearing one. Like the others, there are more carrying positions available online and they come in a wide range of colours and patterns.
 

 

Wrap Sling: 

  • Suitable for – Birth to 35lbs
  • Included carrying positions – 1
  • Strap length – 500cm
  • Our wrap slings are made from 100% cotton and feature a patterned pocket. They come with instructions for a Heart-to-Heart carry but, again, you can find more online. The wrap slings are super soft and really very comfortable.

If you’d like to see more information on each type of sling, as well as examples of carry positions for each one, simply click on the baby sling’s name or picture.

If you’re still undecided about which sling to try, you could try seeing if there are any babywearing meets in your area. A quick online search will give you plenty of information. You can even look for “sling libraries”, who will loan you slings so that you can see which one you and your baby like best!
