Few modern moms do not know about slings – special cloth carriers for children. You can argue long about their need and comfort, the nuances of baby wear, accessories and so on, but I want to talk today about something else. So, slingolikbez – briefly about the main thing.
Not every child carrier on which the sling is written is.
Sling – safe. But only if it is a carrier, made according to all the rules, and is used taking into account all the recommendations.
Sling – comfortable. But only if he is properly selected and dressed.
Ideally, the sling is better to buy with the advice of a qualified professional. It is safer and saves time.
Starting to use the sling, check yourself. There are a lot of photographic materials about correct and incorrect wearing on the net – study them. You can also contact a sling consultant.
If there is no sling consultant in your city, you can send a photo and they will help you. Recently, I even happened to teach on Skype.
Sling need to buy only from a trusted manufacturer. On the website of the Association of Sling consultants there is a black and white list of manufacturers.
When purchasing a carrier, you need to pay special attention to the strength of the seams and the reliability of accessories. Feel free to pull it in different directions.
Before buying, carefully review the features of various models. For example, a sling-scarf is quite bulky, and a sling with rings distributes the load only to one shoulder. The sling pocket is sewn in size, and the May-sling does not allow breastfeeding while lying down.
Think about who will wear the baby and for how long.
Remember your wardrobe. Now you can order a sling on the Internet, so it makes no sense to grab the first one.
Good luck to you slipwear!
