What type of material did you use?  I tried to make an unpadded one with nylon rings (like yours) and 100% cotton twill.  The tail was slipping out of the rings a little.  Any thoughts on why that would happen?

I just used a quilting weight woven cotton.  The fabric was pretty tight in the rings (it filled the rings) so there was no slipping.  I'm not sure why yours would slip, though.... ?  What size rings did you buy?  I believe I purchased the medium-sized set.

So, how comfy does the padding make it? I've never used a padded one, just a ring sling or wrap (which I love, don't get me wrong). Just wondering if you can compare it? I've got another kiddo coming in about 8 months  Grin

I can still carry my kiddo on my back or hip with a wrap (just a long, narrow strip of fabric)-- she's about 26 lbs and totally comfy for short rides  Wink

For those interested, my favorite baby wearing site is www.mamatoto.org

Since I my son (yep -- we found out the week before birth that our "daughter" was a SON  Cheesy), I have started using a moby (the long strip of stretchy fabric wrap), and I can honestly say the moby is WAAAAYYY more comfy than this ring sling.  Also, the moby is completely hands-free, whereas I never really let one hand go from the ring sling.  The ring sling is still nice and good, but for me, I only use the moby now (and I gave this sling away!)  Just my 2 cents.
