What age/weight range is a sling good for?
A pouch or ring sling can be used from birth up until 35 pounds. Some choose to carry their children beyond 35 pounds and you can do so at your own discretion.
Do you mail slings anywhere?
Yes I mail my slings worldwide!
How long until my custom order sling is ready?
I can have your sling sewn and mailed within 48 hours if I have the fabric in stock.
Can I pick up my order?
Yes, you are welcome to come pick up your order from my sewing studio. Send me an email to arrange a time that works for you.
Who makes all the slings?
Me! I do all the shopping, pre-shrinking, designing, sewing, ironing, and delivering of all the slings from my studio in Guelph, Ontario.
What are you sling rings made of?
I use light-weight aluminum rings that are safety and weight tested and designed specifically for baby slings. Here is some information from their website:
We want to bring you the highest quality rings possible. To ensure quality we submit our rings to rigorous testing. During our design phase we perform the following tests:
- Impact Testing
- Pull Testing
- Soaking in bleach and then a full washer/dryer cycle
- Freezing followed by additional impact testing
- Heating followed by additional pull testing
It was considered a success when multiple rings went through all of these steps without breaking. One ring alone will actually lift a 3000 pound machine, without breaking.
Additionally, each ring is individually tested and inspected before shipment. It must pass an impact test and a 250 pound pull test before being considered ready to ship.
What if my sling doesn’t fit me?
If you feel like your sling is too big or too small, please let me know and I will send another sling at no extra cost. Then you can compare the two sizes and mail the one back that doesn’t fit. I know how hard it can be to buy things on the internet and I wanted to be as fair to my online customers as I can be to my local customers who have the opportunity to try on different sizes.
