What is a Ring Sling?

A ring sling consists of a piece of fabric which threads through the rings to form a loop. You can adjust the size of the loop according to the size of the baby and the carrier to get excellent support and comfort for you both. You can breastfeed easily while wearing a ring sling; if your baby falls asleep you can easily lay them down without waking them up. They are also easy to pop your baby in and out of; which is handy once they are mobile and like to be allowed out to explore the world but still come back up for a cuddle now and then. Ring slings are quick and easy to put on once you have got the knack.

Ring slings are suitable for carrying all ages and sizes of babies and toddlers until they no longer want to be carried. There are a variety of carrying positions including cradle hold for a newborn or a sleeping baby, tummy to tummy for babies who prefer an upright position, on the hip and on the back. Ring slings are perfect for breastfeeding in, if you want to be able to breastfeed discreetly then a nursing top can be useful.

We have made some detailed photo instructions showing a tummy to tummy carry using an Ellaroo ring-sling.

 

Maya Padded Sling

Maya Padded Sling Age range: newborn to toddler
Weight range: 8lb to 35lb (16kg approx)
Positions: cradle (nursing), upright facing in, upright facing out, on the hip

From Maya Wrap in the US the Maya Padded Sling has just a touch of padding in the shoulder for your comfort yet is still cool to wear and isn't bulky. Made from the same beautiful woven Guatemalan cotton as the original Maya Wrap (see below), this is a really lovely sling and is easy to use and adjust.

The rings in the Maya Padded Sling are made of aluminium which is light-weight and grips the fabric well. There is a handy pocket on the tail of the sling which fastens with a zip.

As with all ring slings the Maya Padded Sling can be used in a variety of positions depending on the age and preference of your baby. The Maya Padded Sling is ideal to use from birth; but spreads the weight very effectively across the shoulder and back, so is suitable for using with older babies and toddlers too.

The Maya Padded Sling comes with both a basic sheet of instructions and detailed DVD instructions included.

 

Maya Padded SlingMaya Padded Sling Accessories

We also stock the Maya Wrap Sack, a handy purse that snaps onto the rings of the Maya slings.

Maya Padded Sling Sizing

We stock the Maya Padded Sling in small, medium and large sizes.

small size - for people 5' 2" or less and slim build
medium size - fits 5' 2" - 5' 9" slim to average build
large size - fits 5' 9" and over, or shorter people of larger build

The only difference in the sizing is the tail length, with their being approximately 6 inches difference between each size. If you wish to share the sling with a partner who is bigger than you, we recommend that you choose the bigger size. You can always tuck the tail out of the way if it is a bit on the long side.

Positions: cradle (nursing), upright facing in, upright facing out, on the hip

Storchenwiege Ring SlingThe Storchenwiege Ring Sling is made from the same beautiful fabrics as the popular Storchenwiege Wrap. The top quality woven cotton is durable with just the right amount of diagonal stretch in the weave to ensure maximum comfort for you and your baby.
