Threading your Balboa Sling

sling

  • Hold the Sling with the elastic trim up.

  • Pull the safety stopper and tail through both rings and slide to appropriate size – see "Fitting your Sling".

  • Now that you have created a loop make sure that the Sling is not twisted.

  • Slide the safety stopper and tail back through one ring and pull the fabric through until tight.

  • Hold the Sling with the rings in front and the padded back strap in back.

  • Place one arm and your head through the loop. Wearing the Sling on your right shoulder makes it easier to use your left arm and vice versa. However, choose the side that is most comfortable for you.

  • Place the rings at your shoulder level where you would wear a corsage. Pull the padded back strap away from your neck so it sits slightly off your shoulder.

Fitting Your Sling

fitting1Pull the safety stopper through both rings.

fitting2Your Sling can be adjusted from size X-Small (18" tail) to size X-Large (6" tail) and anywhere in between. The sewn down tail portion is to help when threading your sling – the tail can be as long as 18" for size X-Small.

fitting3After you have selected your size, see "Threading your Sling". Sling should fit snug before you place the baby in it, at your bust line and above your waist.

For younger babies that need more support.

  • Pull the outer elastic trim open and lower baby into the sling bottom first.

Fitting Your Sling:

Make sure the fabric is threaded through straight, no twisting. Bring the tail through the rings and spread the rings apart. Bring the tail over the top ring and through the bottom ring, as if you are threading a belt.

Hold the sling in front of you with the rings up and at the shoulder to wear on. Place opposite arm through the sling and up and over your head. Adjust the edges (rails) to create a pouch.

The sling should fit snugly and hit no lower than the top of your hip bone.

The Sling should rest on one shoulder, with the rings at a corsage positions leaving your dominant hand free. Each edge (rail) can be tightened individually. The bottom one to lift baby up and the top rail to bring baby closer to you.
