Hello ladies. I have a pouch style sling that a friend made me, and I in turn made for others, that I really enjoyed when my son was little. Not that he's big now; at five months he's only 15 lbs and 26 inches. I primarily used it for the cradle hold, which is no longer comfortable fo reither of us, but I haven't quite figured out how to comfortably use it in any other position.
I'm thinking of making a ring sling. Are they relatively easy to make? Sewing a french seam on a curve for the pouch style sling was a pain in the rear. Is the ring sling basically a long piece of fabric with a ring at one end? Will this style of sling work well for tummy to tummy, facing outward, and hip positioning?
