  3. Ring Sling Shoulder Styles

    Ring sling shoulder styles

     

    Woven wrap ring slings (which most are) come in a variety of colours, designs, lengths, weaves and blends. One of the biggest differences between them though, is the shoulder style. There are 2 main styles - gathered and pleated.

     

    Gathered Shoulder

    With gathered ring slings, the rings are sewn in, with stitching running in a straight line from one side of the width, to the other. This can be spread over your shoulder or sandwiched up onto your shoulder.

  4. Neobulle Jersey Ring Slings Review

    Nobulle Jersey Ring Sling

     

    There have been a few changes recently on the website - lots of new additions. It always keeps me on my toes - choosing what to bring in, what to not. It means a lot of trying on, using, testing, humming and hawing. You know, as you do.

     

    So when Neobulle sent their new Jersey Ring Sling, I was straight on it. Having tried it with our 3 year old (who turned out to be just a bit too heavy), we then sent a few to be tried by friends and fellow consultants (who are usually both!). It’s being tried out right now, and I’ll be back with their thoughts and photos very soon.

     

    It's so soft and lovely to use - here's why:

  5. We Love Ring Slings

    We love ring slings

     

    Here at LTBN HQ we really love ring slings, and we know that lots and lots of you do too. They're easy to use, great for newborn snuggles as well and those quick up-and-downs with toddlers, and they fold up nice and small to fit easily in a bag.

     

    My partner-in-sling-fun (and funnily enough my DH) did not always love the ring sling. Colin is a Carrying Consultant himself, so I'm sure he won't mind me telling you all that it wasn't love at first use. When at first he didn't get it, he gave up. Fair enough says I. But with a little gentle persuasion and some very good advice *insert winky here* he soon found the ring sling love. It's been his go-to sling option for a long time.

     

    If like Colin you don't see the attraction
