Using a ringsling with a newborn baby
With a flip at the back.
Ringsling: Kokadi Erna in Wunderland WCRS
Legs out, head supported, high enough to kiss, airways free!
Reason why I like the flipped back:
– easier to pull the toprail up high without it digging in your armpit
– more symmetrical positioning of your baby, because of the direction of the bottom rail.
Rucksack with a ‘newborn’ ( Emile is 5 months old )
I recommend to wait until your baby has good head control before you use the hipscoot
Practice over a bed/couch (soft landing spot)
Practice with a spotter (friend or partner)
Practice with a stuffed animal or doll first.
