Jackie (aslayssmile) ring sling question

Jackie, was wondering if you could give me some advice on ring slings. I would like to try one and want your recommendation since you are an expert baby-wearer!! Would like to order one from Amazon if possible since I have a gift card to use, but if I need to order it from elsewhere it's no problem. TIA Jackie!

ETA : sorry about the typo in the title!

The only good ring slings that I can think of that Amazon has is Maya and Sakura Bloom. Both are well known, reliable ring slings that many, many have been very happy with. Can't go wrong with either!

My favorite (and much cheaper!) ring sling is Sleeping Baby Productions. Her store is only open for a few more days before she closes down for the holidays. She is a one woman business and has a fantastic reputation. I own two of her slings myself. sleeping baby productions | product list

Let me know if you have more questions! Smile

Thanks Jackie! I would much rather support a " small" business! Going to talk to DH tonight about ordering one so I can get it before Christmas! Now to choose a color! Do you think the linen is a good choice? Thanks so much for the info!!!

The purple ring sling I've been using with Zoe is a linen from SBP. It's very supportive and cool when the weather warms up (which for San Antonio is sooner rather than later as I know from experience lol). I can use it for quick trips (say 15 minutes or so) with my son still (he's 28/29 lbs)!
