We think Pouches and Ring Slings are great! But we don’t think that our Library Rings Slings and Pouches are getting enough love or appreciation. It may be true that Wraps, Mei Tais and Soft Structured carriers are better at distributing a child’s weight evenly across both shoulders, as well as to your hips. But one shouldered carriers can be just as comfortable for shorter periods of wearing (up to about an hour or more, depending on size of child), and with no buckles or tying to fiddle with are often much quicker and easier to use!
For us, our Rings Slings and Pouches are invaluable to use a busy and stressful times of day when we don’t want or need to fuss with back carries or fastenings. So to help spread the word about how useful these carriers can be, we’re running a special offer!
If you borrow any other carrier at full hire price (£5 for 2 weeks), then you can borrow a Ring Sling or Pouch with it for only £3!
See our Ring Slings and Pouches page for more details on what we might have available!
And if you’re not yet convinced, here’s some more information about these fantastic front and hip carriers…..
Ring Slings and Pouches for Small Babies:
Newborns can be held in an upright position (Rings Sling only), or in a cradle position (Ring Sling or Pouch) on a parent’s front. From about 3-4 months babies can be held in a hip carrying position so that they can look around them more easily. They are held in the positions that parent’s naturally hold their babies when they don’t have a carrier. Both Ring Slings and Pouches are great and easy to use when you need to carry your child without fussing with ties and buckles (like when you’re up in the middle of the night needing to comfort a colicky baby or rushing for school drop off). They’re also excellent to use for convenient and discrete breastfeeding, and are small enough to keep at the bottom of your bag or buggy for when you need them.
Rings Slings for Older Babies and Toddlers:
As your baby grows and their back straightens and strengthens, you’ll find that you naturally carry them sitting on one hip. A Ring Sling or Pouch supports them in this position, spreading the weight across your back and shoulder so that you have both hands free and you don’t get one very tired arm! They’re great for school runs to pick up older children, or to pop to the shops from home or to/from the car. As your Baby grows into a Toddler, they may well want to be carried less, but with all their adventurous running around will still get tired or fall over and hurt themselves. All they’ll want then is to be held in your arms, and having a Ring Sling or Pouch handy can be a life saver when you’ve got a tired, grumpy toddler and other things to carry too! I find that my 18 month old loves to snuggle into me in our favourite Ring Sling at home when she’s ill or teething too 😀
This offer ends 31st October.
