Help me with this Sling PLEASE! Ouch!

How can I wear my sling so that at the end of the day my back isnt killing me? I am babysitting a 6 month old and since I have 2 yr old triplets I have to carry her often to keep the little ones from trampling her. The sling I have is called "Smart from the Start the Baby Sling Cradle" . I know that there must be some secret to this thing Thanks

Yes I think so. It has the two rings on one side and on the other is a piece of fabric with a bar attached to it. You put that area thru the rings and pull to adjust.

yes that is a ring sling, you say it has a bar?
that sounds uncomfy to me already..

is the shoulder padded? is the ring up on your chest when you have the baby in it and have it flat across your back for even support?

Do you have a link of what it looks like? That might help.
Is the fabric spread out on your back?

Sounds like a padded RS w/a closed tail and a bar through the tail to help it from slipping out of the rings.

Hmm...yes, make sure the fabric is spread out as much as you can on your back and it is cinched up tight...the more you lean over the more your back will hurt.

If you can post a pic it will help us help you.

You could try a mei tai or a wrap style sling, it distributes the weight evenly across both shoulders, very comfy...
