In a ring sling the weight of the child is born by your back, not your neck and shoulders. The overall sling design and high positioning of the child in the sling ensures that the weight is distributed evenly across your whole back.
Wearing your baby in a sling allows them to interact with others from a secure and confident position. It enables them to follow your cues in social situations and provides you both with valuable opportunities for teaching, sharing, and cuddling.
Your baby should be held high and snug in the sling. His or her bottom should be roughly at your belly button, at about the same height as if you were holding your baby in your arms. Different babies like different positions. How do you carry your baby in your arms? If you carry your baby upright, try the Tummy-to-Tummy position. If you carry your baby in a recline position, try the Cradle position. Some babies like all the positions, others prefer one over others. Some change their preferences as they grow older. Experiment to find out what position your baby likes. If your baby is uncomfortable, he or she will let you know.
If you don’t get your baby in correctly the first time, take baby out and try again until you get it right. Don’t be afraid to reach into the sling to adjust the baby if need be. Your baby’s head should not hit the rings. If it does, take baby out and put him in again. In the beginning it might take a week or two to master using the sling. Once you do, it is as easy as riding a bike.
The comfort and movement of the sling often lulls children to sleep. If your child falls asleep in the sling and you would like to transfer the baby to another place to sleep, one technique is to bend over at the waist and lay the baby on a bed or couch while still in the sling. Slowly take the sling off by pulling it over your head, being careful not to disturb the child. Make sure the child is in a safe place to sleep and gently remove them from the sling.
Using your Sakura Bloom sling safely is not difficult. Read safety instructions carefully and be aware of safety issues each time you use the sling. With practice and mindful use, you should have years of comfortable and safe slinging.
- Practice, practice, practice. Get very comfortable putting your child in and taking them out of your sling.
- Properly position your child in the sling. Make sure your child has:
Good airflow. Make sure that baby’s chin does not drop to their chest. Check the positioning of sleeping babies to make sure that their airflow is not obstructed in any way.
Proper alignment of their head and neck.
Comfortable positioning of their legs, feet, and arms.
- Your Sakura Bloom sling is professionally made, but you should frequently check the seams and fabric for wear and tear.
- When in doubt, tighten the rails. A snug baby is a secure baby.
- Be careful using the sling in all situations, but especially while cleaning, exercising, in bad weather conditions, or in difficult environments indoors or outdoors (e.g., stairs, steep or slippery terrain).
- Do not use the sling in certain situations—while cooking, doing strenuous exercise, riding in a car, or if the structural integrity of the sling has been compromised.
