Started babywearing(bw) with a soft structured carrier(ssc) when Isabelle was about 6 months old. Due to Isabelle's weight when I started bw, I could not carry her for more than 10 minutes without whimpering of backache. Thus, I tried to keep my ssc bw session to the minimum.
Nevertheless, my hunt for the right bw gear continued as I wanted to wear her as long as I can minus the backache. Don't want to miss all the advantages of bw and leave the wonderful journey of bw halfway. After a long survey and research, I gave ring sling a try. I was skeptical initially because of the first experience I had with a ssc.
Well, the rest is history! I now proudly own 2 ring slings! I can now carry Isabelle for as long as 2 hours and it doesn't burden my back and shoulder. Most importantly, she love being in it.
My 1st ring sling
Bought my first ring sling just a few days before our recent trip to Langkawi. Received my 2nd sling today and can't wait to parade it around, with Isabelle in it of course! Last but not least, I have 2 more lovely accessories filled up my wardrobe. Only 1 regret, I should have bw much much earlier :)
