Can I use ring slings after a cesarean section?
Yes! We find that most women experiencing a normal recovery from a c-section start using ring slings around 2-4 weeks after the procedure. We recommend keeping your sling high to reduce pressure on the scar and discontinuing use if you feel uncomfortable at all.
Are ring slings safe?
Absolutely! hope&plum ring slings have been tested and certified to ensure your child's safety and comply with the safety standards set forth by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. We also are certified hip-healthy, which means you can babywear with peace of mind. Despite our rigorous testing, proper use is essential for safe babywearing. We highly recommend reviewing and practicing the recommended carrying techniques in our tutorial videos.
Are ring slings adjustable?
Yup! Every sling can be worn 3 different ways. The double aluminum ring system combined with our soft fabrics allows you to perfectly mold the sling to your body. And that means several caregivers can use the same ring sling without any issues.
How do the different lengths measure?
