When I realized I was pregnant with our second, I wanted to get John ready to become a big brother, so I found a ring sling just his size! At that time, I was mostly carrying him in a ring sling in stores and on my back with an Ergo at home. When I gave it to him, he immediately knew what to do. He put his doll, Hunter, in it, as well as his beloved Hippo and Cow.
He doesn’t get it out too often anymore, but if I remind him, sometimes he’ll spend a good hour with Cow close to him (kissing him!) So so sweet. Here are our babywearing with kids snapshots!!

You can make your own baby sling for your child to play with from Mama Smiles.
