Sleeping Baby Productions Ring Slings - Storchenwiege Lilly
Did you know that sleeping baby productions was the first company to offer wraps turned into slings? They coined the term "slingify/slingified" in 2005, after a customer sent in a wrap to turn into a sling, and have been offering the option ever since. Now most wrap manufacturers also sell ring slings, and other vendors do conversions, too -- but now you know the rest of the story.
Sizing In brief:
Extra short 65" (165 cm)
The standard SBP shoulder is an overlapping knife pleat (at left). It means you can spread the fabric out as much as you need, as seen in the photos in the gallery, to distribute the baby's weight over your shoulder and back. The shoulder area is between 6-8 inches wide (4-6" where it leaves the rings), and ideally caps your shoulder from collarbone to just below your shoulder bone. This keeps the fabric from spreading out too much while allowing it to spread out more than a narrower design, which may cause shoulder pain in women who have broad or rounded shoulders.
We are now able to offer Karen Hoppis' "Eesti" shoulder style (at right), licensed with her kind permission, on the slingified wraps and sling redos. The Eesti shoulder is a modified gathered shoulder, in that some of the sling's width is taken up in two small pleats on either side of the shoulder. This allows the shoulder to spread out more than my standard pleats, while keeping it somewhat more contained than a fully gathered shoulder (in which the fabric is simply brought through the rings and stitched in with no folds or pleats). Those who have tried overlapping pleats and found them uncomfortable may wish to give the Eesti shoulder a try if they are having a sling shoulder redone, or a wrap turned into a sling. We do not recommend it for users who haven't tried standard pleats: it can be a slightly more difficult style to use, as it spreads out a great deal more and can cause issues if you don't know what you're doing.
