I recently won a ring sling from Mercy Baby Boutique as part of a Facebook flash giveaway. Holy crap, it's amazing! I'd never used a ring sling before, so I wasn't sure how it would work out for us, but it's fantastic! This particular sling is made out of an athletic type of material, meaning that it dries quickly and is great for babywearing in a pool or the beach. I haven't tried it in the water yet because Connor loves to swim with his daddy, but it's fantastic for toddler wearing. Quick, easy, side or back wearing and he still feels free to move about without stressing me out. We got quite a bit of use out of it at the Fourth of July Festival.
