Slings have many advantages, including the fact that they are easy to use after a short period of getting used to them. However, unlike baby carriers, slings require a little training. Then, once you have mastered tying them, you can quickly and easily take the baby in and out.

Babywearing instructions

Most slings have a standard size of about 5-6 metres and can be used in different tying techniques. Putting on the sling may be a little unusual at first, but once you have mastered the technique it is easy and quick to do. There are many online tutorials and instructional videos that show how to tie the sling and carry the baby safely in it.

Professional babywearing consultants

There are also babywearing counsellors who are specially trained to help parents use slings correctly. A trained babywearing counsellor can help you find the right size and tying technique for you and your baby. She can also make sure that you can put the sling on safely and position the baby correctly to ensure you are as comfortable and safe as possible.

A babywearing counsellor can also help you clarify any concerns or questions you may have about wearing a sling. For example, she can help you find a suitable tying technique if you have pain in your neck or back. Or she can show you how to put the baby in a position that makes breastfeeding easier.

It is important to emphasise, however, that despite their simplicity, slings still carry certain risks. It is therefore advisable to seek advice from a trained babywearing counsellor to ensure that you use the sling safely and correctly.


Overall, slings are a great option for parents looking for an easy and comfortable way to carry their baby. They are easy to use, durable and offer many benefits for both the baby and the wearer. If you want to try babywearing in a sling, you should seek advice from a trained babywearing consultant to ensure that you are using the sling safely and correctly.
