Sling Questions

Age? How long can I use my Walkabout Sling for?

Our slings are suitable for use from birth. As with all baby carriers proper care and attention must be taken with your newborn. The upper age limit is dependent on the wearer’s ability to comfortably carry their baby’s weight. Many parents continue to use their sling beyond 3 years of age.

Can I breastfeed while using sling?

Absolutely, breast-feeding is so natural and simple in the Walkabout Ring Sling. Sling tail gives privacy while breastfeeding also.

Can people with back problems use your sling?

Yes! However, depending on the seriousness of the problem you may wish to consult with your doctor.

I have a heavy toddler, 12kg + can I use the Walkabout Sling?

Yes. Be sure to change shoulders periodically. To prevent back pain, spreed fabric across the whole back, rest fabric on the shoulder and onto the upper arm , not on you neck. Have the Sling adjusted as tightly as possible so that baby’s weight isn’t pulling you forward. Carrying in the Hip position is generally best with toddlers.

What is the Walkabout Sling made of?

Walkabout Slings Classic are 100% cotton drill – durable, breathable and strong yet not too thick.
Walkabout Water Range its made from Mesh Polyester – quick drying, lightweight and non-shrinking fabric its ideal for water use (pool, beach, shower etc.)

How long its the Ring Sling?

Walkabout Slings Classic are around 195-200cm long and 65-70cm wide.

I've heard that ring slings are either right or left shouldered. Which one are yours?

Walkabout Ring slings are versatile! They have a gathered shoulder system which allows you to wear it on both shoulder. Switching shoulder its always good but most carers will favor one side only.

How to care for the sling?

We recommend washing your Ring Sling before using.  It becomes very soft and moldable and much easier to wrap with.  We recommend hand washing your ring sling with a soap/detergent that does not contain brighteners. If you do decide to use a washing machine, you may use a delicate cold cycle with similar detergent, and place a sock over your rings to avoid them from getting caught on something in your machine and air dry.

My baby has reflux. Would sling help?

Yes. There are a few positions that help alleviate the discomfort of reflux. The sling can also be manoeuvred to personal preference & position as your baby ages.
