Our slings are approximately 80" long. The width of the ring sling is 30". We have found this to be ideal for infants as well as toddlers. The ring sling does not have any paddingin the shoulder or along the sides. The tail is useful for covering the baby while sleeping, while nursing, and to keep out of bright sunlight. The rings used in the Ring Sling are manufactured and supplied specifically for this purpose. They have been "break tested" to hold a weight of 700 lbs.
You will receive an instruction sheet for the proper threading of the ring and several ways to wear the sling for various sized children.
