How to choose baby slings
• There’s a wide selection of carriers and slings on the market. To find the right fit, consider whether or not you’ll be breastfeeding. A hands-free wrap or ring sling is a good option for this situation, and fabric slings can be adjusted as the baby grows while providing plenty of coverage in public.
• Protect your back by choosing a baby carrier that distributes weight evenly, with plenty of support. This type of option is ideal for heavier babies.
• If you plan to carry your baby this way beyond the newly born phase, you should look for a baby sling or carrier that can grow and adapt along with your little one. Many models are adjustable, distributing weight across the waist and shoulders for long-term use.
