what kind of ring sling was this?

Saw a friend carrying her new baby in a ring sling...didn't get a chance to talk with her or ask her about it. It was light colored and the pouch of the sling looked very padded and the tail coming through the rings was short and skinny. The rings themselves looked less than half the size of the Maya wrap rings (only ones I'm familiar with) and were white plastic I'm assuming? Baby was in a tummy to tummy hold upright with her head resting against mom's upper chest...looked very snuggly.

Anyone know what kind of sling this could have been?

Years ago I had a sling like that. It was very cheaply made though, including the rings. I wouldn't consider it to be safe for more than a very small baby. I can't remember the name of it though.

Maybe an Over the Shoulder Baby Holder? I had one of those years ago (like 10-12 years or more) before I knew there were other options. It was pretty well padded, almost too much. The rings were white plastic and the tail was also quite a bit shorter and made a lot different than my Maya Wrap (it almost looked like a strap or handle on a bag) the end of the tail had a white plastic piece on it which I think was supposed to stop the tail from coming through the rings.
