Complete novice, so please excuse me if I sound silly! I'm dipping my toes into the world of slings and wraps. I've joined a baby wearing local FB group and have asked a couple of questions on there, but to be honest it's still going over my head. There is also a sling library which I will go to at some point, it's just in an inconvenient location to get to. My sister gave me a pouch like one that she used with her little girl. I've bought a new stretchy one on Ebay, a second hand "sleepytoes" and a second hand Mei tai carrier. I'm going to stop buying now until I can try them out and see what kind I like. However, I love the look of ring slings. But are they okay for newbies, or are they for more experienced babywearers? On another note, I want to make my own. The idea of picking my own fabric excites me so much! Has anyone made their own? I don't want to do anything wrong, but the tutorials online look super easy.
