you can obviously just tie a knot in it to make a pouch sling, but how to convert to a convertable ring sling?

1/ take your wrap and rings ( you can find them online, theres a link to one store at big mama slings) and thread the rings the same as you do when putting it on, leaving about 6-10 inches depending for your temp "tail"

place your rings "tail" side facing your shoulder, cupping it smoothly

3/ take the true tail of your new sling, thread, adjust to suit and youre done!

by the way, for sling newbies, always make sure the 2 rails/edges are at the outside of the rings for adjustability and safety of your bub!



let me know what you think!

lol, it also lets you judge the length of the tail, i find shorter tails can be limiting once the baby gets bigger, but some find it too bulky, so this way you can change it as you need! really, you dont even have to sew it at all if you wish to use it as a wrap down the track! or give you more length when bub gets older! just be sure to leave enough length on the back of the shoulder so its secure, id say 10 inches is preferable, but judge it for yourself, you may want more or less.

and thanks, i just thought id let people know they dont have to be stuck with a wrap if you want to try it as a ring sling. im glad you like it! ^_^

Thank you, this is interesting. I've never messed with Ring Slings, but I have 2 sets of rings from ring slings that people had me turn in to Dreamslings, and I've been thinking about making myself a RingSling to try. I know there are lots of good directions on TheBabyWearer.com but this is better...no-sew until I try and like it...Thanks!
