There are a lot of ways to carry your baby, but using the best baby ring slings is one of the best. They’re easy to use and they keep your baby close to you at all times. If you’re not sure what to look for in a sling, that’s okay! We did a lot of research and found some of the best products out there. Before we get to it, let’s take a quick look at some of the features you should know.
Sizes: All but one of our top picks are one-size-fits-all. These baby holders are designed to be easy and adjustable. You shouldn’t have a problem getting a good fit that keeps you and your baby nice and comfortable.
Weight Limit: If you’re planning to use your baby carrier through toddlerhood, make sure you get one with a high weight limit. Of course, there are several available that are specifically made for babies and infants, too.
Material: With a few exceptions, the products we chose are mostly made of cotton with a little Spandex thrown in. The Spandex gives the cotton just the right amount of stretch so you’ll be able to make easy adjustments.
Head Support: Technically, these slings don’t have any built in head support. That’s up to you and how you wrap your little one. Head support is important for newborns so check the manufacturer’s instructions for how to position the sling.
Carrying Bag: A carrying bag is a great way to travel with your sling. Whether or not a carrier has a bag included doesn’t really change how much you or your baby will like using it. It’s a nice added bonus.
Machine Washable: Believe it or not, this is one of the most important features. Babies and toddlers can be very messy. It’s essential that you be able to just toss this thing in the wash when you need to.
