Help me find a ring sling!

I need a nice ring sling for my nephew's GF. She is 19, having her first baby. Fave color is green. I would prefer to spend no more than $50.

If you know of a great resource or know of JUST the right sling, please share! I am overwhelmed trying to choose! LOL! TIA!

Re: Help me find a ring sling!

I'd recommend Sleeping Baby Productions ring slings, everyone in my babywearing group (including me) loves them. Jan has several options in the 40-50 dollar price range, although you'll have to pay shipping on top of those prices. I have the single layer linen and it's great for summer, but I've also heard good things about tencel. I'm sure the basic twill is good too, Jan wouldn't use it if it wasn't. Lots of choices in green!

Re: Help me find a ring sling!

I actually like the tencel better than the linen. I'm not a big RS user, but I find the tencel easiest to adjust quickly (for me) AND comfortable. (We have several SBP RS in our library, and they're all great.)

I also like this brand: http://www.sweetpearingsling.com/ And her solid color slings start at $50.

I have this green ring sling from Babyette on etsy that I LOVE! I get tons of compliments on it and the wahm behind them is super. She also has a facebook page and answers questions quickly. Good luck

I will 2nd (3rd?) the SBP. I have a single layer linen SBP RS. LOVE it! I bought it for $30 on FSOT. I still use it for my 14 month old. Although my arm starts to fall asleep after a couple hours :P
