Hmm... It seems to be of the thickly padded variety, I can't tell if it has rings. Maybe it works like a nojo or an otsbh? How does it adjust?

It's a ring sling however it seems HUGE! When I pop my daughter in it...she drowns and she's hanging down by my knees. I finally got it adjusted shorted but she's still buried... is it possible it's just too big?

Sorry I didn't answer sooner...net was down. Dang dial up LOL!

It's probably just too big for you.

Well, wait...if its a ring sling, it can just be tightened up...thou it depends on how thickly padded it is, if its excessively padded (like a NoJo for example) it might be hard to get it tight enough if the wearer is very thin.

Now, if its a pouch thats a entirely different matter and if it is, it could very well be too big!

Hi Naiomi,
I have the same sling. I just bought it second-hand today. I plan to get the intructions for use tomorrow. I know what you are saying about the size of it. I think that there is a way to twist it to make the 'pouch' smaller. It apparently has 4 positions from what I understand. I will be sure to let ya know!

The instructions weren't of much help. It just tells you to put the padded part on your right shoulder and to be sure that the tail of material you've pulled through the rings is hanging down your front. It still seems awkward to me.

Here is a link to a picture of a sling very similar to the Jolly Jumper type. This is the only way that I can see this particular sling making sense. http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/20...g_carrier.html
