The high quality woven fabric that is used for DIDYMOS baby wraps is also used to make DidySlings. A ring sling may not be as versatile as a classic baby wrap, however, it is very convenient and easy to use. The ease of being able to pop baby in and out quickly makes this a very popular method of carrying your baby! It is an excellent carrier for newborns and quick "ups & downs" with toddlers.
The process is simple: you put on the sling, place baby inside it, and tighten using the rings. DidySlings offer all the advantages of DIDYMOS weaving techniques, including support, diagonal stretch, durability and high quality. The DidySling makes it easy to carry your child on your front, hip and even the back. The DidySlings are sewn in Ludwigsburg, Germany, the hometown of DIDYMOS. To create the DidySling, the fabric is simply gathered around the rings and sewn together. The gathered “shoulder style” conforms ideally to any shoulder size and type and is very comfortable.
We recommend the DidySling is used as a front carry only until baby has adequate core, neck and head control before transitioning to the hip and back. The DidySling is made with 87mm aluminium rings which are weight tested up to 35lbs and can easily carry your baby from newborn right to toddler and preschool age!
The DidySling is available in two sizes. Both sizes feature one end sewn enclosing the rings and the other end, a tail with a tapered end just as you see with the Didymos woven wraps.
Size 1 measures 170-180 cm / 67-71 inches (The length is measured along the shorter edge. Length measured on the longer side is approximately 190-200 cm / 75-79 inches). This length is suited for persons wearing sizes up to Large or size 16 US/CAN. If you are not sure, please measure the upper part of your body, from one shoulder down to the opposite waist height and back to the shoulder, just the way you will put on the sling. If you measure not more than 140 cm / 55 inches , a size 1 should fit!
Size 2 measures 200-210 cm / 79-83 inches (The length is measured along the shorter edge. Length measured on the longer side is approximately 220-230 cm / 87-97 inches).
