    FS or Trade: Wrap & Tie

    I have had this for over a year and just can't get the hang of it. would be willing to sell but would prefer to trade for something that is SUPER easy to put on and put a infant to toddler in. I have been seeing slings or something like that. Here is a link to what I have and the video is of the wrap I have.

    I have a plaid (mostly brown) ring sling from Sleeping Baby Productions that I've used only a handful of times that I'd like to trade if you are interested. It has red rings and the tail is short, I bought it to sling two kids at a time about a year and a half ago but never got the hang of it before they were too heavy to wear at the same time. I can get a picture tomorrow.

    Where about in Oregon are you? I'm in Dallas.

    Picture would be great. I haven't used one of these before. But I have watched some youtube videos and it seems easier for me. What is the recommended weight limit?

    I am out by Yamhill.

    I think in general her slings have a thirty five pound weight limit. I have another one of her slings that I have comfortably worn my boys in when they were thirty+ pounds. I'll get pics in the morning.

    Unfortunately the sizing chart has changed since I bought it. Ring slings aren't like pouch slings since the rings make the lenght and tightness of fabric adjustable. Let me look at the newer chart and see what size I'd be.

    Well if you are looking for a long tail this sling isn't for you. I am 5'7" and 195# I had no problem wearing it but the tail went to a bit above my waist.

    Sorry I didn't respond earlier... I'm out of town right now. If you want I could send it to you first for you to try on before you send the Infantino...

    If you want to send it with Judi. I think the slig will be by far the easiest to use for me so I can just send her witht he wrap & tie.
