Budget friendly ringsling?

I had the Maya wrap with my DD and need a new one for the new baby. Should I go with another Maya wrap? Or SBP? Rec. please!

You know I couldn't afford a maya wrap but they have a free pattern on their website to sew your own that was easily adaptable to hand sewing if you don't own a machine. Want a link?

SBP is much comfier than Maya plus you can pick a fabric yourself. And I think her prices start from $35 for twill if that helps. But the comfiest ring slings are woven wrap conversions (SBP offers some too) - they last much longer and you can find used for around $80-90. Again - you can use them from newborn stage through toddlerhood

I really liked my ring sling last time but still learning all about baby wearing. Why is a wrap conversion more comfortable and able to be used longer?

Mostly because of the special way those wraps are woven - with diagonal stretch, they are made especially for baby wearing and much more supportive than standard fabrics like regular cotton or linen. Plus the important thing considering comfort is ring slings shoulder style - there are a lot out there but most popular are sbp pleated, gathered and eesti combo - all are great, just matter of preference. Might be to much info, I know:-) lol:-) anyways if you wanna purchase only one sling for a good price which will last you until your baby is done wearing and will be forgiving on your back go with storchenwiege stripes, especially the pattern called inka seems to be popular:-)
