Did you know you are not limited to just front and hip carries with your ring sling? You can also wear your sling as a back carry. It’s really easy to learn and a lot of fun! This is perfect for kids that are able to sit up unassisted so keep your small babies chest-to-chest until they are developmentally ready to be on your back.
This is not the most ideal back carry but it is very helpful when you are needing to get stuff done around the house and would like to free up the front of your body. I resort to this carry when I’m cooking, doing laundry, hanging diapers, etc. You don’t want your child in this position for a long period of time because it will hurt your back. The ring sling is a one shoulder carry so listen to your body and take your baby off your back if you start to feel discomfort.
