Storchenwiege Ring Sling 'Louise Bio Turquoise'

I am very excited to soon be introducing to the New Zealand market the super comfy Storchenwiege ring sling. I have been trialling one in the Anna colourway for the last eight months and have been loving wearing my younger son in it. The fabric is nice and wide so easily spreads across my back to help distribute baby’s weight evenly. The weave of the fabric makes it really easy to get baby into a nice deep seated position with knees up and bum down – this is optimal positioning for baby’s spine and hips. The gathered shoulder allows the fabric to be spread nicely and this is very comfortable on my shoulder. The aluminium sling rings are large allowing the fabric to gather evenly and the fabric grips the rings very well which means no ‘slippage’ and no having to readjust the sling when wearing it. My older son sometimes likes to hold the tail as we walk along which helps to keep us all together when on a mission through a busy street or shopping mall. Below is an image of us earlier in the month. Not the best pic but you can see how the fabric holds my boy nice and snug, bum down, knees up, and the nice spread of fabric over my shoulder:

In preparation for placing our first order I have run a competition which has helped me decide which colourways to start with (but don’t worry if your favourite isn’t coming in this year – I will be working towards stocking all colourways during 2011) and one lucky person who tagged themselves in the image of their favourite colourway over on our Facebook page has won their favourite! I will be ordering in their sling especially with our first order of Storchenwiege ring slings.

And the lucky winner is . . . Jodz Clarke!! Congratulations Jodz. Please contact me via the Contact Us page on the My Natural Baby website. Jodz’ favourite is the Louise Bio Turquoise which is organic and pictured at the start of this post.

Thank you so much to everyone who shared their favourite over on our facebook page. Look out for Storchenwiege ring slings on the My Natural Baby website very soon. Their arrival will be announced on the My Natural Baby Facebook page.

If you are interested in more information about Storchenwiege ring slings, here’s some extra info from the Storchenwiege website:

Practical and simple to put on: The Storchenwiege® RingSling, made of the proven Storchenwiege® sling material, can be worn in one size by different wearers.

Using the Storchenwiege® RingSling, you can:

  • * carry your child on your hip, tummy to tummy and on your back.
    * carry your child easily and quickly, but still have both hands free for her brothers or sisters or jobs you need to do.
    * easily manage barriers such as stairs, getting on the bus or train, or rough or irregular paths.
    * give your toddler a rest when she is just learning to walk and cannot yet manage long distances.

  • What makes the Storchenwiege® RingSling so special?

  • * The Storchenwiege® RingSling comes with detailed instructions on how to wear it and a washing bag to protect your washing machine and the Storchenwiege® RingSling aluminium rings.
    * The Storchenwiege® RingSling is made of 100% cotton; the special Storchenwiege® fabric stands out for its extremely good diagonal elasticity. The Storchenwiege® RingSling thus supports the child firmly and envelops her body like a firm bandage. This guarantees a safe, comfortable feeling when wearing it.
    * The fabric of the Storchenwiege® RingSling is certified in accordance with the Oeko-Tex 100 standard for babies. In this way, you can rest assured that it is absolutely safe for your child´s health.
    * The use of large, high-quality aluminium rings makes the Storchenwiege® RingSling comfortable to wear, allowing its folds to be arranged neatly in the rings and thus over the shoulder. The Storchenwiege® RingSling also has different-coloured edges, making it considerably easier to put on, and especially to pull tight.

  • How to care for your Storchenwiege® RingSling properly:

    The Storchenwiege® RingSling can be washed at up to 60°C. Please use the enclosed washing bag to protect your washing machine and the aluminium rings.
