Sling FAQ's

Are instructions included?

The Etc. Sling has videos online that show how to thread the sling, perform the holds, and tips and helpful suggestions.  I also have written instructions online.   I am developing similar instructional material for the Ring Sling Pouch, but for the time being I will refer you to my favorite babywearing websites or counsel you over the phone or email.  

Do you have gift certificates?

Yes, you can buy a certificate for that special someone and let him/her pick out what they want.

How do I order?

Choose the type, pattern, options, and size of sling you would like and go to the order page.

How long will it take to get my sling?

It will send your sling approximately 2-2 1/2 weeks after I receive payment.

How do you send the slings?

I send them Priority Mail (2-3 days) or Global Priority Mail (4-7) days)  through the USPS.

Do you offer a shipping discount on multiple slings?

I will combine shipping on orders for multiple slings.  Email me for totals.

How do you accept payment?

I accept money orders or paypal.  If making payment through paypal, go to www.paypal.com and under the "send money" section enter my email address emcsparron@msn.com and the amount total.  If you choose to pay with a money order, I will supply my mailing address.

How are the Etc. Sling and Ring Sling Pouch different?

The Etc. Sling had two narrow tails, the Ring Sling Pouch has one wider tail with a pouch.  They can both do ring sling holds.  The Etc. Sling can do additional holds similar to a wrap.

How much do your slings cost?

Prices for Adult slings start at $45.   Kid's Slings are $10 and Barbie Slings are $2.

How much is shipping?

Shipping in the US is $8.00 for an adult sling, $3 for a doll sling.  Shipping outside the US is $12.

Do you ship internationally?

Yes, I ship internationally, but customs and taxes are the responsibility of the buyee.

Can the slings be made to fit more than one person?

There is no padding in the rails to limit adjustments of the slings.  If it is needed for very different sizes, the tail or tails will be longer on the smaller person.  The extra length of the tail or tails may be tied around the waist or tucked under the bottom of the child.

How can I spread the word about your slings?

If you love my slings, I would appreciate your telling others!  I have business cards available as well as an opportunity to rate me at www.thebabywearer.com.  It is possible to rate both me as a vendor and my different slings.

What age ranges do your slings work for?

All slings, unless mentioned prior to purchase, are capable of helping you carry a newborn to 4 yr. old+.  If you can carry your child, your sling should be able to help.

Do you have matching slings for adults and kids?

I have many sling fabrics available in matching patterns.  Email me if you need more help finding out which fabrics are available for matching slings.
