This is a great sling for those new to babywearing or who want to test out a ring sling without spending $50+! Some of the slings I was looking at are upwards of $100 - while I would love to someday have such a high quality sling, this one does the trick nicely for now. :)

This was my first sling and my first experience with baby wearing. I registered for this for baby #1 and a friend gave it to me at my shower! My baby is now 8 months old and I've been using this since he was 3 days old. The sling has come in handy so many times at the store, at church, in class, on walks, in restaurants, doing household chores, and "just because". :)

I love that this ring sling is both practical AND beautiful! I got the fern batik print and love it. The fabric is very durable, and the shoulder and rails are nicely padded. As some mentioned, this padding in the rails can make tightening the sling a little difficult at times. This is why I have not rated the sling as a 5 star sling. The good news is that once my ring sling was "broken in" a little, the padding softened and it is now much easier to adjust.
The other reason why I didn't give a full 5 stars is because of the actual rings themselves. On my sling anyway (from 2013) the rings have shown no sign of wear and are solid and durable. No, they're not Sling Rings, but they're sturdy and gave me no cause for safety concerns. The size is comparable to the medium sized rings that Sling Rings offers. Of course, this smaller size adds to the difficulty in ease of adjustment, especially with the aforementioned padding issue.

A few tips and techniques I've learned:
#1 - Positioning: SAFETY FIRST!

I own 3 carriers:
Lite-on-Shoulder Baby Sling (this product)
Infantino Swift Classic Carrier (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003I867US/)
Infantino Sash Mei Tai Carrier (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005C9ODQ6/)

My baby is currently 12-13 lbs
My priorities: in addition to skin-to-skin perks of all carriers, I focused on hands-free movement, different holding options, breastfeeding, comfort, ease of use, portability, growth, price, and extras. I'll rate these features 0-5 for each.

Lite-on-Shoulder Baby Sling:
I like this carrier best for wearing her when she is asleep, particularly while I work at the computer, but it's also good for her while awake and while I'm mobile. As long as she isn't very squirmy, this carrier is excellent.

hands-free movement (3)
Very good, but not great. Sometimes I feel the need to steady her with one hand to make sure she doesn't shift (eg. to reach something up high). Not a big deal as this doesn't happen often.

different holding options (5)
The sling is very versatile. I already use 2 holds easily and there are several more to learn, with plenty of options for her when she is larger.

breastfeeding (2)
Nursing in this has been tricky for me so far, because she is a squirmy nurser and the sling doesn't give her enough room to move to her liking. This may be my skill with the sling or just the nature of a sling in general. However, it is very easy to move her from sling to seated nursing with the sling loosened around her, and then back into the sling when done.

I am still playing around with ways to be discrete while nursing with the sling.

I wish I had this before my daughter was born. I used a snugli front carrier until she was about six months old, then she got too heavy for it and the straps hurt me too much to use it anymore. This is so much more comfortable, once you get the hang of it, which really doesn't take long. Plus, there's no complicated straps to adjust, and it's easy to tighten/loosen it with the baby inside. I was ready to send it back after the first time I wore it, but I sent them an email and they gave me some pointers on how to adjust it comfortably, and now we use it everyday. Now, at ten months, I make the loop very small and put it under her arms so she can "walk" all by herself (much easier on your back since you don't have to bend over. The fabric is really beautiful and the quality is great(I've washed it twice).I get compliments whenever I wear it. Like I said, I wish I had this sling from the beginning beacause there are so many different ways to carry the baby in it, it really does grow with your child. I would really reccomend this to anyone expecting, it doesn't take much practice to wear it comfortably, but it does take some patience. Read the instructions on their website before you give up! It's worth it! P.S. I'm not particulary thin or short, but I still had to weave the padded part of the straps through the loop to make it snug enough, so this is plenty big for a larger-built person.

This sling is awesome. I have a very "snuggly" baby who wants to be constantly held, but with 2 older children that is not always possible so I do a LOT of baby wearing. This is my go-to carrier for several reasons.
1. It is really small and extremely portable so I can throw it in the diaper bag or purse and always have it handy in case baby gets fussy.
2. It is very light weight so even in a Mississippi summer I am not getting heat stroke beyond the fact that I have a baby on my chest.
3. It is easily cleaned.
4. This is super easy to use.
5. This is the only baby carrier I have that I can put on if baby is already asleep on my chest, my other carriers all require me to put baby down, strap it on, and then put him in it.

I don't always use it for a few reasons as well
1. It is not terribly comfortable after extended wearing. My back and shoulder get tired if I wear this for too long. If I will be somewhere and wearing my baby a lot that day I will bring my ergobaby.
2. My baby is almost 20lbs so if he is awake and wiggly, I need to tighten it periodically
3. Probably my biggest complain is that it is very feminine. My husband absolutely refuses to wear this sling

I always get people asking me where I got this and that they need to buy one either for themselves or their daughter. Between this, the ergobaby, the seven sling, and the baby bjorn, this sling gets by far the most use. If you are on a budget and can only afford one carrier, I would get this one
