This week we will talk about spreading the fabric in your Ringsling. I keep my ringsling set to about the same position all the time with slight adjustments for taking baby in and out of the carrier. After wearing my ringsling a few times I find that my fabric starts to look bunched up and does not glide smoothly through the rings. It ends up looking like this.
So what I do is loosen a few inches of the fabric in the rings.
I make sure that both of my rails are nice and flat and not twisted in the rings.
This is the opposite rail spread out and flat through the rings.
Next I start to slowly pull my spread fabric through the rings a small section at a time keeping it bunched evenly.
Pulling each section down through the rings.
Each section is nearly all the way through now spread evenly. You can see the separate sections are spread nicely on this striped ringsling.
This is how it should look when you have all the fabric pulled through. The fabric will spread from one end of the rings to the other side with the fabric evenly distributed. This will help with any adjustments you need to make once you have baby in the sling. I usually look at my ringsling after a few wearing to make sure my fabric is spread out like this.
