Snuggy Baby sent us a beautiful Blue Chevron Linen Banded Ring Sling Baby Carrier to review. I was so enthralled with this sling it is simply beautiful! The sling itself is a great turquoise blue linen with silver rings, and on the bands has bright wide stripes in a chevron pattern. The fabric is a bit stiff when we opened it, but it felt great in the hand. The rings had no welds and are complete all the way around. Snuggy Baby Linen and Prestige ring slings measure approximately 28″ x 78″. This is a great size for newborns but still large enough that my wiggly 3 year old can ride comfortably.
One feature that I noticed right away that really impressed me was the label inside the sling. It had instructions on how to place the baby inside of it safely. When I first started to use a sling with the almost three-year old I watched a ton of videos and I was pretty good getting her positioned in the house, however the first time I went out all of that information went out the window. I would have loved if the sling I started with would have had this great label. I love the shoulder on this sling as well, it is pleated and gives a nice cupped shoulder with a comfortable fit. There is almost a feeling of padding there but there is none. It fit snug and up high enough that it did not constantly slip down making the seat of the sling too baggy. When you wear a sling for any amount of time, the shoulder is the key to comfort and this one definitely made it easy to wear for a long period of time.
The rails on both sides had a firm seam, but one that moves easily through the rings. It adjusted nicely and held well when it was tightened. The seat with the baby in a froggy position was plenty deep and felt firm and solid. With the baby being so new he is not really straightening his legs or trying to squirm too much. When I put him in the sling and adjusted it, he stayed in place very well.

This sling would be great for a new or experienced user, it came with a video to watch, a booklet of instruction in addition to the label that showed how to wear your baby safely.
