What we say:
Available in a wide range of stylish prints in soft yet durable cotton, this ring sling has a handy storage pocket for carrying essentials – and there’s even room to stash a spare nappy or two. The fabric is reversible it’s a good option if you and your partner both plan to wear it but have different styles.
Tested by Amy Connolly, from Cornwall, mum to Bodhi, five months. She said:
This is really comfortable to wear with Bodhi sitting on my hip, but there’s too much fabric left over that gets in the way. Getting the right fit so the sling is comfortable and secure, is fiddly, but once you’ve cracked this, you don’t have to keep undoing it, which I love as no one with a baby has time to faff!
Tested by Kirsty Graydon, from Angus, mum to Charlie, six months, and Finlay, three. She said:
The more I used this sling, the better I got on with it. I found it quite stiff to begin with, which made it tricky to tighten, so getting Charlie into a safe and comfortable position was initially challenging. The fabric is pretty but I really like that it’s reversible as my husband was happy to wear it too.
Tested by Hazel Newhouse, from Bedfordshire, mum to Ivy, 18 months. She said:
I found this sling easy to use once I got the hang of it. The super-thick material is great for cold weather, and the zip pocket is handy for keys or cash so you don't need a bag. Breastfeeding is easy in the hip-carry position and I could swing Ivy onto my back easily too. Beautiful yet sturdy, it’ll last for years.
