Hip carry in a Ring Sling.

Step 1:   Place rings over preferred shoulder, with placement just below shoulder in corsage-position. Sling should extend across chest like a sash, from shoulder to opposite hip.

Step 2:  Start with baby in high-burping position on opposite shoulder of rings, with baby’s legs above fabric sash.

Step 3:  While continuing to hold baby, reach through fabric sash with other hand and welcome baby’s legs one at a time, lowering baby and diagonally guiding towards the wearer’s hip.

Step 4:  Sit baby on bunched material of the sling, settling baby in a seated squat position. Knees should be at or above baby’s bottom.

Step 5:  Pull fabric up baby’s back, up past the baby’s neck to fully extend the “pouch” from knees to the neck. Baby’s arms can be in or out of sling.

Step 6:  Tuck fabric under the baby’s bottom, and pull up between baby and wearer to encourage a deep and secure seat within the sling.

Step 7:  While still supporting baby under the bottom, tighten along the width of the fabric to remove excess slack in the sling.  Use the tail of the sling to pull up and out, starting at one side of the tail and working across the width to the the other rail.

STEP 8:  Continue tightening until fabric tension is tight and even and snug across the back of baby and wearer.
