Ring Slings and I have a love/hate relationship. One of the reasons being I have a permanent minor back injury from a car accident a few years ago. Long term, ring Slings tend to sit right on my bad spot and aggravate it. This is why I even with a tiny baby, I don’t like to take them on hikes.
However, that all changed once I tried a torso carry randomly one day. I have seen several videos on back torso carries, and thought why not the front?
Baby is snuggle and secure on your chest. Both your shoulders are feee. And no pinching on your shoulders!
This is an advanced carry, as it needs very proper tightening and specific ring placement. But once you get the hang of it, I swear you will love it!
