Sling rings revolutionized my wrapping life.
Yes, I said it. Such a simple concept changed the way I feel about certain carries forever.
I am actively a part of quite a few Facebook groups for babywearing moms and I see the question, “I would like to do something with my sling rings…. what are some good ideas?” come up at least a couple times a week. So after quite a few requests, I am finally making a list of carries and ideas that you can refer to when you’re feeling like changing it up with some colorful circles. ❤
USING RINGS TO TIE OFF:
Using a ring to tie off a carry is helpful for when you may not have enough length in your tails to get a full knot tied, but you can carry out the carry enough to cross the tails over each other. Should use a size medium or large ring.
USING A RING TO TIE OFF A CANDY CANE CHEST BELT:
Rings can also be used with a Candy Cane Chest Belt (CCCB). Eliminates the knot and takes less length to carry out. Can use a size S-L ring, depending on how thin/thick your wrap is.
TYING KNOTLESS TIBETAN WITH RINGS:
SHEPHERD’S CARRY WITH A RING:
Shepherd’s Carry with a ring was my attempt at making my favorite shorty carry even better. It eliminates the knot over your chest and in your face, as well as takes less wrap length to carry out. SCORE. Can use a size S – M sling ring and a size 3 or 4 wrap.
SHEPHERD’S BACK CARRY WITH A RING IN THE FRESHWATER POSITION:
Shepherd’s Carry with the ring in the Freshwater position is so much comfier for long term wearing. This carry came to me when I was fiddling with Shepherd’s Carry with a ring and was trying to find a way to take some of the pressure off of “the girls”. 😉
ROBIN’S DOUBLE HAMMOCK WITH A RING:
Robin’s Double hammock was invented by Meredith Barbery, who gave me the go-ahead to make a video for her. An awesome carry. It will take your base size wrap and a large ring.
DOUBLE HAMMOCK REBOZO WITH A RING:
Double Hammock Rebozo with a sling ring eliminates the slip knot, is adjustable in multiple directions and lays flatter on your chest. Uses a size M or L sling ring and a size 3 or 4 woven wrap.
KNOTLESS RUCKSACK CARRY WITH A LARGE SLING RING:
Knotless Rucksack with a ring is great for quick up and downs with busy babies! It’s my go-to while out and about shopping. It’s easily adjustable and eliminates ruck straps and knots. Always a win! This carry uses a size below your base size woven wrap and a large ring.
KNOTLESS DOUBLE HAMMOCK WITH A LARGE SLING RING:
Double Hammock knotless ring carry uses a size above your base size woven wrap and a large ring
DOUBLE HAMMOCK BACK CARRY WITH XENA’S FINISH:
Double Hammock knotless ring uses a size above your base size woven wrap and a large ring.
BACK WRAP CROSS CARRY WITH SWEETHEART AND TWO RINGS:
Back Wrap Cross Carry (BWCC) with Sweetheart neckline and two rings… this is a beautiful carry. Uses a size below your base size woven wrap and size S – L sling rings, depending on how thick your wrap is.
ANOTHER RING VARIATION: BWCC/Reverse Mullet Back Carry using rings
DOUBLE HAMMOCK, SINGLE RING:
Double Hammock, Single Ring (DHSR) is a great shorty carry for anyone! Can be done with a woven wrap, sizes 2-4 and a M or L sling ring.

DOUBLE HAMMOCK, DOUBLE RINGS:
Double Hammock Double Rings (DHDR) can be done with a woven wrap, sizes 2 – 4 and a set of S or M sling rings, depending on the thickness of your wrap.
