The elastic sling is wonderful for the start of your babywearing life. Soft as a T-shirt, you can leave it on all day and take your baby in and out. For even more bonding, simply put it on as the first layer of clothing and feel your baby skin to skin. Due to its elasticity, we recommend it up to a maximum weight of 9 kg to ensure that your baby is always optimally supported.
Woven Baby Sling
QUICK INFO ▼
The Hoppediz baby sling is ideal from the beginning to the end of the individual carrying age. There are no limits to the tying variations: use the sling for carrying in front, on the hip or on the back. Or perhaps as a swing or hammock. The woven sling is the all-rounder among the carrying aids.

The ring sling impresses with quick putting on and an even easier binding with the help of two rings. As the weight is on one shoulder, it is particularly suitable for short distances. Your child sits either on your hip or in front of your. When sitting on your hip, your child looks forward in a physiologically healthy way and is interested in everything you are doing, but can turn away from the action at any time if it becomes too much for him or her. The ring sling is your faithful companion at home and on playground trips.
A sling offers a lot of advantages, especially for your baby:
Using a baby sling satisfies your baby's need for closeness.
The squat-straddle position in the sling supports healthy hip development.
For crying babies, adjustment difficulties and regulatory disorders can be significantly reduced by carrying them in a sling.
Your baby can never get enough of warmth and security. Slings strengthen the parent-child bond for years. This bonding strengthens the child's basic trust and empathy with other people.
During bonding in the sling, more oxytocin is released, also known as the cuddle hormone. Oxytocin improves milk production.
The right sitting position
In order for your baby's hips to mature correctly, your child's legs should be in what is known as the ergonomically M-shape position. The knees are drawn up and spread at about the level of your child's belly button. To keep the legs in this position, the sling should always reach from the back of the knee to the back of the knee. The baby sling - as flexible as it is - can be adjusted to fit your baby exactly. In addition, your child's back should be well supported so that you can bend forward and your baby can maintain body contact.
The baby carrier as an alternative
You don't want to learn how to tie a sling, but you still like to be comfortable? Then take a look at our baby carriers: Baby carriers are quicker and easier to put on than slings, but not as all-purpose.
Babywearing through all seasons
Newborn babies are not yet very good at regulating their body temperature. But a baby sling or baby carrier will help them to do so.
Tips for the cold season:
- Carry your child on your body under your jacket. Your body is like a natural hot water bottle in winter.
- Don't forget the hat, most heat is lost through the head.
- If the skin colour is bluish marbled or paler than usual, your child is too cold. If the back of his neck is sweating, he is too warm.
Tips for the warm season:
- If the head is red and the neck is damp, your child is too warm.
- Cool your baby down by undressing the baby.
- Walk and stand in the shade if possible.
- Do not forget sunscreen.
Babywearing is beneficial for the health
The slight movements that occur when carrying stimulate your baby's bowel activity. This reduces annoying colic caused by carrying. Through the parents' body heat, babies learn to regulate their own body heat better and faster.Advantages of babywearing
Avoid carrying the wrong way
Many parents think they are doing their babies a favour by carrying them face forward. Even if you've seen it done by another manufacturer, on the street or in the movies, there are many reasons not to.
