Hello, I'm not pregnant yet, still ttc, but I'm planning to BF.
I wanted a sling for ds, but I read all these horrible stories about babies dyeing in them. I never got one.
Are they safe? What brand do you recommend?
Thanks

A lot of moms like to use ring slings. I used the Moby wrap to nurse in when ds was young and it worked great for us.

The ype of slngs that were dangerous have been recalled. They looked like a bag that you laid the baby in. Ring slings are safe as long as you are using them correctly. Do you have a local babywearing group? They can give you different carriers to try and show you different holds. They are very helpful.

If you wear babies correctly theres no risk of death in a sling.  Avoid pocket slings because those tend to be the ones people use wrong.  I like sleeping baby productions and shiny star designs ring slings

Ring slings are the best sling to get, because you can adjust them so they aren't droopy or too tight.  There are one size slings, but they can be a problem if you start out heavy and lose the weight or vice versa.  I prefered my moby wrap and baby hawk mei tei.

How do you know which one is right for you? I'm looking them up on Google and there are so many different ones!
