What It Is
The Maya Wrap ring sling is a length of hand-loomed, 100% cotton that threads through a set of two lightweight but strong aluminum rings. The LP (or lightly padded) shoulder features a unique, padded shoulder that comfortably cups your shoulder and pleats that spread out to distribute baby's weight across your shoulder and torso. The set structure keeps the shoulder of the sling sitting comfortably on the top and ball of your shoulder without fabric coming down over your upper arm and restricting arm movement. The Comfort Fit shoulder features a classic gathered shoulder with a comfort band allowing you to adjust the spread of the shoulder to your desired width and an elastic seam across the back of the shoulder to prevent overspreading. The more spread the shoulder is, the farther down your upper arm and back the fabric can cover, offering more support for heavier babies. The unpadded edges of the ring sling adjust easily for a custom fit but won't slip out of place. There's a pocket in the ring sling's tail with a concealed zipper for carrying small, lightweight items. The Maya Wrap's hand-loomed cotton fabric is sturdy but highly breathable and softens with time and use to a wonderful linen-like feel.

Most Maya Wrap ring slings are available in Medium only (with a few Large in certain colorways), but please contact me for special ordering of different sizes.

Small babies can be carried comfortably for longer carries when sling is properly adjusted
