We here at RingSlingBabyCarriers.com want to thank you for visiting our web site. We appreciate your business. Ring Sling Baby Carriers provides excellent product and customer service. Your concerns are our concerns, and to help you first time parents choose a baby carrier we provide the following information. You can ask several others about what type of baby carrier they prefer and you most likely will get a different answer from each person asked. But there is a fairly simple way to find the carrier you and your baby will enjoy for many months to come. There are several things to consider when choosing a baby carrier.
Who will be using the carrier?
Personal comfort is first and foremost in deciding on a baby sling or baby carrier. There are many baby wearing options as there are body shapes and sizes of the individual carrying the baby. You should decide whether you need to have the baby's weight balanced over both shoulders or whether you would prefer a one-shoulder design. A one-shoulder baby sling is quick and easy to use, however you might need the weight spread over both shoulders for your comfort.
Another important factor to keep in mind is that some baby carriers are sized to fit the wearer. So if the baby will be carried by more than one parent, you need to be sure that the carrier you are looking at will be adjustable in sizing that quickly and easily fits both parents.
We have a variety of styles and types of ring sling baby carriers available on our web site.
How old is your baby?
If you have a newborn or young baby, do you also want a sling or baby carrier that will be suitable for an older baby or toddler? Or would you prefer to purchase a new carrier as the baby grows. Some carriers can be utilized for a longer period of your baby's growth and may offer various carrying positions designed from birth through toddler hood.
What will you be using your carrier for?
Do you wish to be able to accomplish hands-free nursing? A baby sling may be your best choice. A sling may also be better suited for short trips such as errands or picking up another child from school or activity. However, if you plan to carry your child during longer periods such as working, cleaning, traveling, etc. than a carrier that supports your child's weight over both shoulders or one that displaces some of this weight to hips and upper thighs may be a more comfortable option. You could consider a more compact and portable baby carrier - perfect for the parent on the go.
A baby carrier for any budget!
Your budget is of course a major deciding factor for parents when choosing a baby carrier. A smaller budget doesn't mean you can't have a great baby carrier. A simple, adjustable ring sling baby carrier, may be found at a much lower cost than specialty ergonomic baby carriers and the benefits of carrying your baby will be no less than if you were using the more expensive sling. Now if your budget allows for something extra special you could opt for say luxury prints and fabrics, or perhaps purchasing more than one baby carrier, depending upon your baby's age or stage. The cost of two baby carriers is only a fraction of the cost of many luxury baby strollers. And, most parents find they use their baby carrier much more than expected, and for some, even more than their stroller. This is an important item for you and your baby - you don't want to cut corners!
Which style of sling or baby carrier appeals to you?
There are many styles of carriers to choose from and one may be the most appealing to you based on style, fabric, or print. If you don't like the fancy tying techniques a wraparound carrier uses you may opt for a ring sling baby carrier or an adjustable pouch, pouch or convertible sling baby carrier. The good news is you can find a baby carrier today that will work from newborn to toddler that's not only comfortable but will look great too.
