Sling with rings: how to tie and wear a newborn in it
The appearance of a child in the family always entails a change in the way of life of parents. The child demands constant attention, and nobody canceled house chores. But if there are older children in the family, then for the mother there will be a problem, even an ordinary walk, since it is not an easy task to roll two strollers. Relieve these difficulties will help carry the baby. Especially popular among them is the sling with rings. At home and on a walk, mom’s arms are free, and a newborn baby can be carried lying in the right position, while he quietly slumbers at the sound of her heart.
Sling with rings: advantages and disadvantages in comparison with other types
This is a simple design for carrying a child from the first days of his life, which is a cloth crossed over one shoulder, the free edge of which is fixed by means of two rings.
This kind of carrying was used from ancient times by women of different nationalities, with the difference that the fabric was tied with a usual knot. The rings in the design were added by Dr. Rainer Garner relatively recently, in 1981. The official date of birth of a sling with rings is 1983, when the product was patented.
Sling-scarf, as a rule, is much longer and does not have fixing rings. Unlike carrying with ringlets, such a carry has many ways of winding, but to use them you need certain skills. The advantage of the scarf is the ability to tie it so that the load will be distributed evenly over the shoulders of an adult. However, sling rings are easier and faster to wear and adjust, you can easily take off, along with a sleeping baby, without waking him up.
