Using the Hip Carry and Nursing in a Ring Sling

Using the Hip Carry and Nursing in a Ring Sling

babywearingmonthThis post is part of “All About Babywearing” Month on Dirty Diaper Laundry and Mama Needs This.

I made a short video showing how to use a ring sling for the hip carry, which is great for older babies and toddlers, and how to nurse while wearing them.  I know it isn’t the best video in the world!  My rails were a little wonky and made adjusting harder than usual.  I also didn’t spread my fabric across my shoulder as your should for long term comfort.

  • Hmm… that looks so “hip,” pun intended! I so want one… but hubby doesn’t think they are safe. How big is ur boy now? weight wise?

  • Thanks for sharing that! I’ve been using my sling in a hip carry, but didn’t know how to nurse in it. Great info.
