The owner and sole proprietor of SBP, Jan Andrea, has been sewing ring slings (and only ring slings) since the birth of her first child in 2000. Long recognized as an industry standard, SBP slings are inexpensive, but never cheaply made. Each sling is custom sewn just for you when you select your options, and sent to you quickly, so you can start practicing or wearing right away.
Includes a wire for better fit along the nose; your choice of elastic or a ribbon for tying; a pocket for filter material; and five sizes to provide a good fit for your face (essential for best protection). Made with an outer layer of high-quality, tightly-woven quilting fabric, and an inner layer of sturdy, soft French twill with its brushed side out for comfort. Offering my DIY pattern for free as well!
I've been making chainmaille jewelry for longer than I've been sewing, off and on. Lately I've found making earrings very calming, but I have only two ears and all the craft fairs are cancelled, sooooo here we are.
Fantastic for everyday wear, whether your climate is hot and humid or chilly and dry. Perfectly supportive medium-weight linen breathes like a dream and wicks away moisture, keeping you cooler when it's hot, but still snuggly on a cool fall day. Pre-softened for ease of use when you first unwrap it, this linen only gets softer with use and time. Find your favorite color, with twenty-one to choose from.
Lightweight yet sturdy, easy to adjust right out of the package, strokably soft. One customer calls it her "butter sling" because it's so smooth. Inexpensive enough to be the perfect starter sling, but will last through years of use. Fourteen colors in stock to choose from, or dye your own with neutral silver gray. French twill makes an ideal backdrop for a tail accent or patterned pocket.
From the SBP/Tekhni exclusive "Bios" DNA weave to limited edition fandom yardage, these wrap conversion ring slings showcase your personality through color and weave. Repreve® blended with cotton makes for a soft, strong fabric that's warm in the winter, breathably cool in the summer -- a SBP/Tekhni exclusive ring sling will keep your child snug and secure from birth through preschool.
Dilemma: it's hot out and the older kids want to go to the splash pad. But what to do with the baby? Grab your water sling, and you've got baby safe and high, and your hands free for their big sibs. For afternoons at the pool, that long-awaited beach vacation, or just showering with your baby at home, a water sling is indispensible! SBP's is affordable and well-constructed, available in 15 fun colors.
When you buy a sling from sleeping baby productions LLC, you're getting a sling that was custom sewn with your comfort and your baby's safety first in mind. Every sling is made to meet and exceed the standards set forth by US regulations (CPSIA and ASTM F2709).
I was on the founding board of the BCIA (Baby Carrier Industry Alliance) and am still an active member. My commitment to safe babywearing goes back almost 20 years, with "babies on bodies", not profit-making, as my primary motivation.
I believe that babywearing is for every caregiver. I have hosted free sewing directions for ring slings and other carriers since the early 2000s, and I frequently donate to direct-action and non-profit parenting/babywearing groups.
Wear your baby with confidence in a SBP ring sling.
