Not the clearest of photos, but you can get an idea. It's definitely floral, but could do for a boy with a flower loving mama.

A bit closer up on the photo above, but still blurry. I can try to get better shots of this one if you are interested.

Sling wearing tips:

*Face visible and close enough to kiss.
*Fabric high on baby’s back
*Baby’s bottom at or above your bellybutton (newborn)
*Baby’s knees higher than his bottom and fabric reaches all the way up to baby’s knees (create a seat)(hip carry)
*Fabric spread wide over your shoulder and back
*Fabric not twisted in rings
*Rings high (corsage position)

Ring slings also make perfect nursing covers.

**Some Benefits of Babywearing
· Mothers’ progesterone (mothering hormone) is increased through physical contact with the infant, leading to a more intimate maternal bond, easier breastfeeding and better care. Thus lowering incidence of postpartum depression and psychosomatic illness.
· Infants who are carried are calmer – all their primal/survival needs are met: caregiver can be seen, heard, smelled, touched, tasted, fed (breastfeeding mother) and motion necessary for continuing neural development, gastrointestinal and respiratory health and to establish balance (inner ear development) and muscle tone, is constant.
· Infants IQ and brain mass are measurably greater. When primal needs are met, babies spend more time in a quiet state of attentive alertness, ideal for learning – rather than in a panicked survival mode.
· Infants are more organized; parental rhythms (walking, heartbeat, etc.) have balancing and soothing effects on infants.
· Infants are “humanized” earlier by developing socially; babies are closer to people and can study facial expressions, learn languages faster and be familiar with body language.
· Developmental milestones such as learning to walk, talk and toilet train are reached earlier.
· Contrary to western cultural myths, independence is established earlier.
· Aggression is diminished.
