Baby Wearers: Question!

Parker is now almost 4 weeks old and I'm beginning to venture into babywearing but I'm having a little bit of trouble. I have a ring sling that I'm trying to use but I'm having getting Parker into it comfortably. I've watched a couple of videos on getting him into, using the football hold, but my arms are so short that I can't really do it properly and he ends up with his head smooshed into the rings!

So my question for you, dear readers, is... Are there any videos that really helped you ring sling it in your beginning days? Or are there instructions you can give me to make it a little easier? Especially with having little 22 month old Caden, it would help me so much to have my hands free... but Parker doesn't like to be put down!

Thank you in advance for anyone who helps me!

I wore all my children. :) and I loved it. My favorite was the Mei Tai and Wrap Carriers. But I have used Ring slings as well.

A good source is

They have a forum that you can ask questions, see photos.. so forth. The people are real friendly too

Cassidy, I woudl be happy to meet with you and help you get it all working for you. There is also a Babywearing Class here in town run by Birth Matters ( They can show you not only the tips and tricks for using your sling, but also all the other styles of carriers as well. I am not sure when their next class is, but you can always find out on the website.
