Wrapping with Rings! A Hip Carry & Front Carry

So per your request here are a few tutorials on wrapping with sling rings. I wanted to start out with a front carry and a hip carry before I move onto back wrapping with rings. So stay tuned for future blog posts and video tutorials about back wrapping with rings! Please remember when using rings for babywearing that you only use rings from slingrings.com as they are tested for babywearing and weight. Never use welded rings as they are not tested!

This first video tutorial is for a common hip carry called Robin’s Hip Carry. This variation is done with one sling ring. You could use a large or medium sling ring for this carry! I used a large in this video. I learned this carry thanks to our VBE Courtney. This is a great carry for nursing and also not a bad carrier for a beginner. This carry should be used for a baby with relatively good head control I think. In the video I use our lending library’s Didymos Indio Size 3. You could accomplish this carry with any size really you just may have a good bit of tail remaining if you use your base size. So here is Robin’s Hip Carry with a Ring

The next carry is a Short Cross Carry (SCC) with a Ring. I used a large sling ring in this video as well but you should be able to use a medium for this carry too! This is also a great carry to nurse in. And since this is a poppable carry its also a great beginner carry. What’s a poppable carry? Basically its a carry you can pre tie without baby in there, you can then after its tied place baby in. Later when you take baby out you could leave it tied and pop baby in again later. This can be very nice for running errands! Again I used our lending library’s Didymos Indio Size 3! A wrap of a size 3 or 4 would probably be appropriate for this carry. So here is Short Cross Carry with a Ring!

I absolutely love using sling rings when wrapping! So look out for future tutorials on back wrapping with rings! I plan to do one on the Mermaid carry! Hopefully these video tutorials help you with learning to wrap with the use of sling rings!

  1. Those are great tutorials, thanks for sharing! It never occurred to me to use a ring with my wraps, learned something new today! (and I have to ask, where did you get those striped leggings your daughter is wearing? They are beyond adorable! :-)
