How soon can I start wearing my baby?
You can start wearing your baby from birth if you’d like! It can be a wonderful way to bond in those early days while still caring for yourself or your partner during recovery from childbirth. For babies or mothers with special medical needs, please talk to your pediatrician before babywearing.
Will I spoil my baby if I wear him/her too much?
Not at all! Babies who are worn settle down easily in their carriers, and let their parents go about the work that they need to get done! They associate loving comfort with the carrier and easily settle down with grandparents and babysitters too! In fact, research has shown that babies are quickly able to develop a sense of security and trust when they are carried. They are more likely to be securely attached to their caregivers and often become independent at an earlier age.
What if my baby is fussy in the carrier?
There are lots of things you can try! Is your baby fed, changed, and comfy? Try walking around the house or taking a little walk outside! Sing and talk to your baby! If your baby is in footie pajamas, check to make sure that their feet aren’t constricted.
Can I breastfeed my baby in a ring sling?
Yes! One of the best parts of using a ring sling is the ease of breastfeeding. The most important thing to keep in mind is monitoring your baby’s breathing (this means not covering their face!) and returning your baby back upright after nursing is done.

Ring Slings FAQ
What shoulder style should I choose?
That’s a good question! It really is a personal choice, but you can visit our dedicated comparison page for more information.
Which baby sling works best when taking baby in and out frequently?
We know that between frequent diaper changes for newborns and “Mama, my walk now!” for toddlers, you need something that’s fast and simple! Any of our ring slings are wonderful for fast in-and-outs and up-and-downs! All you do is lift the rings to loosen, and pull baby out.
What is the weight limit for Maya Wraps?
Our ring slings are tested for use between 8-35 pounds. Babies weighing less than 8 pounds, or who are premature or low tone, have health or developmental challenges should not be worn in a baby carrier without consulting with your health-care provider and a trained babywearing educator.
What are Gently Used Products?
Gently Used Maya Wrap Baby Slings are made up of returned items. They are in like-new condition but may be wrinkled, and they have the same guarantee as new Maya Wrap Baby Slings. The DVD and instructions are included. When you buy a gently used item, you can choose between a solid color or a striped/patterned one, but they are not listed by specific color or pattern.

Are your baby slings compliant?
Yes. Maya Wrap Ring Slings and accessories are compliant with the Consumer Product Safety Information Act.

Use and Care FAQ
Our cotton ring slings are very easy to care for! Machine wash in cold water; line dry to avoid shrinking. Do not use fabric softener (which can cause the fabric to slip) or bleach. Iron as needed or wanted!
