Most women who have a normal recovery from a c-section find that they can use a sling around 2-4 weeks after the operation. Keep your sling high to reduce pressure on your scar and make sure to discontinue use if you feel uncomfortable at all.
They are! We source our aluminum rings and fabrics from responsible suppliers and seek out the highest quality products for all of our components. In addition, our slings have been tested and certified to ensure your child's safety and they comply with the safety standards set forth by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. In addition to our rigorous testing, proper use is essential for safe babywearing. Please review and practice the recommended carrying techniques in our tutorial videos.
We currently offer ring slings made from linen, linen cotton blend and a hemp cotton blend.
Our linen and linen cotton blend are lightweight and breathable, but extremely strong. Linen is a unique fabric, and as such, little bumps are a normal characteristic of linen and most slings will have some on them from the weaving process. Both our linen and linen cotton blend slings are offered in a single layer.
Our hemp cotton blend is wonderfully supportive, yet soft and moldable. This fabric can absorb moisture, helping to keep you feeling dry and happy in warm weather, as well as offering insulation in colder weather. Our hemp cotton blend is offered in a double layer.
All of our fabrics launder well, get even softer with use, and are compact enough to fit into an overstuffed diaper bag.
We aim to be size inclusive and provide a comfortable sling for every body who wants to wear one. Our Short slings are made to measure approximately 74", our Mid slings are made to measure approximately 82", and our Long slings are made to measure approximately 90". If you'd like to see different lengths on multiple body types, check out our Length Guidehere. If you are still unsure which length would suit you best, send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We chose aluminum rings for their strength, longevity, and beauty. Our rings are hand forged here in the United States by a small company.
Since they are a handmade product, there may be small cosmetic imperfections that do not affect the function or safety of the rings. If you are still worried your rings have more than normal variations, please send us an email at email@example.com.
We experience large volumes of orders during our sales, restocks, and launches. Some items sell out very quickly. Adding an item to your shopping cart does not reserve that item – you
must complete checkout to secure your purchase. Orders using a discount code are final sale.
Orders may be cancelled within twenty-four (24) hours by sending an email with your order number to firstname.lastname@example.org. However, if your order ships before we receive your request to cancel, we will be unable to cancel the order. Thank you for understanding.
We typically ship USPS, either Priority Mail or First Class Mail. Domestically, shipping time is approximately 2-5 business days to reach the destination. Internationally, shipping time is approximately 6-28 business days to reach the destination.
