At times, weeks can go by and we don't use the ring sling and then we have a day of extreme tiredness and there is no better solution then to pop him in here. 

Last week he came down with a cold, so some sleepless nights led to a little cranky baba that just wanted to be held. That does not go down too well with a house that needs tidying, and a toddler that needs lunch or to be played with. So the only solution for me is the Ring Sling, I can pop him in and we can go about our business. He's happy because he's snuggled in warm and close. He has a great vantage point for viewing what I'm doing and if he's in the mood for chat he babbles away to me. If he's tired and feeling not himself my shoulder is right there for his little head to rest on, usually a snooze is easily come by.

I mostly wear him on my hip, so he can choose to look about him or snuggle in for rest. But on days where I know he's happy and wide awake, I have worn him forward facing for short periods. I hold him this way if he really wants to look at something, but from the security of my arms.
