Tips and Tricks – Ring Position
We previously talked about theading and sizing your ring slings (http://bwiofpeoria.org/
As you can see, I am first sizing my ring sling by adjusting it to the distance between my shoulder and hips.
I like to carry on my left hip, so I put my left arm and head through the sling.
I want to end up with my rings in a high corsage position. To do this, I am actually going to line up the seam of the ring sling with the seam of my shirt. If you are new to ring slings, you may actually want to start with it a little behind the seam of your shirt.
Then you place your baby in the carrier. This is 14 month old T. As always, make sure you get a good seat.
To tighten the carrier, pull the top rail horizontal instead of down
If you need to tighten the bottom rail, you can pull it down.
Then spread the fabric wide over you back and over your shoulder as comfortable.
As you can see, my rings ended up in the high corsage position and my baby is secured nice, tight and close enough to kiss.
