01. Are ring slings safe?
Yes! Our greatest concern is the safety of you and your baby. WISEJOEY slings are made from the highest quality aluminum rings and fabric available, and each one is tested to ensure the sling remains safe over time. However, like any baby carrier, it’s essential that slings are used correctly for safe babywearing.
02. Why the ring sling? what makes it so great?
The ring sling is the easiest and quickest way to wear your baby. The fabric is short and manageable; as it never needs to touch the ground, it’s more hygienic and easier to keep clean. There's no wrapping or buckling involved, and after a little practice, putting on the sling can be done by yourself in a matter of seconds.
03. How soon can i start to wear my baby in the sling?
Most newborns can be worn right away. If your baby has health challenges, or weighs less than 3Kg, you should discuss babywearing with your health care practitioner.
04. What’s the weight limit for wearing my baby in a WISEJOEY sling?
We recommend wearing your baby up to a maximum of 15kg.
05. Is the sling portable?
Yes, it can easily be folded and fitted inside a diaper bag or purse.
06. Are the metal rings interchangeable?
No. The rings are sewn into the sling.
07. Why are your slings made from linen?
Linen is the strongest natural fiber. It’s hypoallergenic and temperature regulating, and it’s easy to care for – everything we’re looking for in a baby carrier for our little ones!
08. How do I wash my sling?
Our slings can be hand- or machine-washed in cool water and hung to dry. Avoid using detergent with optical brighteners.
09. Can I choose a different ring color other than the one(s) offered?
Our slings are made with the rings sewn in, using the color options shown. We are not able to take custom orders.
10. Where are your slings made?
Our slings are proudly made by a network of independent seamstresses in Lisbon, Portugal.
