I've always been a fan of baby wearing, but when Samuel was born, I was not prepared for such a teeny tiny preemie. My first born, Noah, was 7 lbs. 10 oz at birth and we quickly jumped into the world of soft structured carriers. We loved the ease of baby wearing and being hands free was so convenient! So when we were waiting on baby #2, I fully planned on using my soft structured carriers again.
When Samuel came home at 5 lbs 2 oz I knew that the carriers I had on hand would have to wait. He'd need to grow a lot. But Samuel was tiny. He needed to be held. He was early and still supposed to be in the womb. He needed to be snuggled in tight. And with adoption, we really needed that bond that baby wearing can help facilitate. So I put my SSC in the closet and started looking into other options for preemie baby wearing. My friends introduced me to ring slings and a whole new world was opened!
I love how easy and comfortable a ring sling is. Ring slings quickly became my favorite way to baby wear and I was in no rush to pull out my soft structured carriers. When Moby announced their new ring sling in 2016 I was intrigued! Ring slings can be expensive and the price point on this one is amazing! For the price of $49.99 you can purchase an amazing ring sling! I love how comfortable the fabric is, the fit is perfect and I had no issues getting a secure hold on my tiny baby.
Samuel is 8 months old now, crawling and very wiggly! He doesn't like to be held much because he just wants to GO! But when I put him in the ring sling, he snuggles up and I'm able to shop, clean, and be completely hands free.
The Moby Ring Sling comes in three different color or print options and is a great buy! If you're looking for an easy, affordable way to baby wear, this is your solution! One of the best things about this ring sling is it fits up to 45 lbs! You won't regret your purchase!
