Ring Sling Size: Which Should I Get?

Our Baby Tula Signature Ring Slings are made using beautiful woven material, designed and woven specifically for Baby Tula. Using this supportive woven material, that quickly softens and glides, makes our ring slings a wonderful option to use with your baby from birth into toddlerhood. They have a weight range of 3,6 - 15,9 kg and allow for front and hip carrying positions.

A benefit to a ring sling is that they're a compact, quick on-the-go babywearing option. A sling compactly folds and is easy to bring along in your bag to slip on and off. Ring slings perfectly mold around the wearer and baby creating a customized fit that is snug and secure. We offer our ring slings in a variety of stylish designs and fabric blends to help you keep your hands free while keeping you and baby comfortable!

Not sure what ring sling size to purchase? 

Baby Tula Ring Slings are available in two ring sling sizes, "Standard Length" (~ 196 cm) and "Long Length" (~ 221 cm) unwashed. Ring slings are measured lengthwise from the gathered fabric on the ring to the tail end of the fabric. The Standard Length will leave a shorter tail (the fabric hanging down from the rings once baby is in the sling) than the Long Length. The tail does not impact the safety or ability to carry, but is more of a stylistic preference. The fit of Baby Tula Signature Ring Slings is very versatile, and both ring sling sizes will fit most wearers. And if the length of the tail seems too long for you, there are ways to wrap the fabric around the rings to use up some of the length.
