What is your favorite ring sling? I have one that a WAHM near me made. It's a light weight cotton and I've used it constantly since DS#1 was born and he's almost 2. Now that I have another new baby, I've started looking into different carries (DS1 is just hip hold) and found that this sling isn't the greatest. Its hard to adjust and gets bunched under the ring all the time. So I'm not a total beginner with the RS but not a pro either. What should I look into?

When you're choosing a ring sling there are two main considerations--the material it's made out of, and the shoulder design.  I personally like slings made from woven wraps (also called slingified wraps, or wcrs/wrap conversion ring slings).  They're soft, sturdy, and super supportive.  My favorite shoulder style is Sleeping Baby Productions, but I haven't tried a whole lot of different shoulder styles.  If you go to the For Sale or Trade--Ring Slings section of The Babywearer, you can buy really affordable second hand slingified wraps, just look for "SBP" in the title of the listing.

Here is a link to a list of baby wearing groups. Often they have lending libraries that may offer to you,  these different ring sling shoulder styles to try before you buy.

ooo thanks. I'll check on those links for sure. I've been drooling over the rainbow SBP that PAXbaby shows in her videos!
