Sling with rings
Such a sling is easy to master. For example, for the "cradle" position, the sling should be put on the shoulder, straightened and tightened on the shoulders, which will allow the sling himself to become in the right position. On the shoulder opposite the side with the rings, we take the child and put it so that the legs look towards the rings, and the head - from them. Then pull the sling.
For the position on the abdomen with a "pole", place the lower edge of the sling in the child under the knees, and the excess folds - closer to the pope. Pull the sling by the tail so that the baby assumes the position of the frog.
The position "on the hip" demands from my motherPreliminary training without sling. Other variations in the basis have the same techniques listed below. So, the legs of the child should be located symmetrically, the knees just above the priests, and the lower edge of the sling under the knees.
And the last - wear the baby on different sides of the body. This will not allow spoiling his posture and will not hamper the proper development of the muscular frame of the child.
