Ring slings are a length of fabric with 2 rings sewn in to make a shoulder. The end of the fabric is threaded through, put on the parent and baby popped in and tightened up. They are worn on one shoulder so wearing time can be limited to shorter journeys than a wrap, mei tai or SSC. They can come in different fabrics including cotton, woven wrap material, silk etc. They are lovely for hip carries for older babies and children (very quick!), tummy to tummy snuggles for little babies and have the added bonus that they pack down small in a change bag.

Pouches are a continuous loop of fabric which is placed, like the ring sling, over one shoulder but you ‘flip’ the shoulder to adjust. These are sized and it is important to buy the correct size for you and your baby as these have the smallest scope for adjusting. However, once you have a pouch that fits well these can be a comfortable choice of sling to add to your change bag.
