Baby Pouch Sling Information - Size and Difference

So what's the difference between a Ring Sling and a Pouch Sling?

How to use your pouch sling?

Using a Pouch Sling is relatively easier than a Ring Sling. There's no need to adjust the length or size. So it's just Fold it, Put it on, Slip baby in and Go! :) Take a look at the photographs for a step by step instructions.

To determine your size, measure your shoulder to your waist (just above the hip bone) see picture & follow the table below to check which size fits you best. *

Measurement from Shoulder to Waist (above hip bone) Inches
S Size 22.5"-24"
M Size 24.5"-26"
L Size 26.5"-28"

*Note: You do not need to change the size of pouch sling if your baby grows older and bigger. Size & weight of the baby doesnt really matter unless your baby is very much bigger than normal. It really depends on the wearer :) Do not get too big a size, because you need to wear your baby snug and fit. It'll be more comfortable for your back and for the baby.

Unless you have a bigger bust or you have a baby who is way bigger than average weight, go one size bigger.

Currently we only have S, M & L size, if your measurements does not fit into this table, we recommend that you consider a rings sling instead. Kindly indicate your choice of pouch design upon checkout by writing in the Special Instructions or Comments About Your Order.

Our Story

Our Humble Story
The image that came across my mind when I first heard of baby sarong sling, was how the women in the villages carry their babies while they go out to the padi fields to work. Little did I know that there's more to the simple act of just carrying a baby. (see 'Why wear your baby?')

I was first introduced to the baby by my sister in law, when Tristan, my first baby boy, was 3 months old. I was surprised at how contented and happy he felt while sitting, sleeping and feeding in the sling. He didn't fuss much and I felt free to move around the house while carrying him in the sling.

Chris ( my husband) and I love travelling and exploring new places, new cultures and food! (esp. road side stalls... if you know what I mean :). Since Tristan came into our lives, our dreams were ....over....and so we thought! We are no longer two but three, we cant even bear the thought of leaving him behind. So with a baby sling, off we went everywhere with Tristan safe in my arms. We didn’t have to miss out on the bargaining and crowded market places as he would sleep and feed whenever he wants to. And it's amazing how much a baby learns when you travel together, experiencing different environment and situation.

After becoming a mom, I realized it was a full time job and I wanted to spend more time with my little one. Nursing him as long as I can, bond and grow with him. However I live in this world where we need to survive with a source of income. I realized that the best thing would be to start something that will allow me to work from home. My experience of using the baby sling and breastfeeding has motivated me to share it with others. So what better option then to start an online shop providing baby slings and encourage breastfeeding? That's how MummyHugs came into being! :o)

Of course, not forgetting my dear my husband for being my pillar of strength and for helping me get this started. Without him I guess this idea will only remain as an idea. I like to also thank my sister in law for this heaven sent gift of the sling and all the encouragement she has given me to persevere with breastfeeding.

Our goal here at MummyHugs is to encourage breastfeeding, positive parenting through use of virtues, reading wonderful books and prayers, and use of great quality baby & mummy products and clothes.

As we are just starting off on this adventure, please let us know how we can make your shopping experience easier and enjoyable. Or if you have great fun ideas or suggestion that you cant wait to share it with us, please drop me an email at

Once again, thanks for dropping by!

Why wear your baby?

Why wear your baby in a baby sling?

- Great for breastfeeding mom At MummyHugs we passionately support breastfeeding. Baby sling lets a mother breastfeed discreetly in public, it satisfies frequent nurser, and lets the mother move about while nursing.

- Babies are happier and more contented Research shows that babies who are carried often cry less and are more contented.

- Calms Babies As fetus is curled up in the mother’s womb, the new born is comfortable and reassured when she is carried in a sling, closed to your heart. It comforts her as she listens to the familiar sound of a mother’s heartbeat.

- Bonding between parent and baby The close physical contact lets mother and baby connect and bond. A great way for a father to bond with the baby. It also helps a working parent reconnect with baby after a long day.

- Makes you more attentive as a parent When held close, parents can actually ‘sense’ their baby’s changing mood, needs. It helps you read and understand your baby’s cues.

- Babies are smarter Contended babies who cry and fuss less, spend more time observing and learning about the world around them as you go about your daily activities. These experiences stimulate nerves in the brain to branch out and connect with other nerves, helping the brain grow and develop.

- Enhance speech development Babies carried seems to be more attentive and clicks into a conversation like they are part of it. This is because babies are up at eye and voice level; he is more involved and learns speech and the ability to listen more quickly.

- Hands free With the baby in the sling and your hands free, you are able to around easily, and be able to do chores around the house or pop out to the shop or visit friends. It also lets you have that extra pair of hands to hold on to your toddler and spend time with your older children.

- Makes going out/traveling easier With a baby sling, you can move around easily especially where pushing a stroller is not possible with the uneven pavement. It lets you go places where you otherwise won’t.

- Premature babies benefit greatly from being held Kangaroo Care Studies have shown that premature babies who are held close to the mother’s body thrive better and helps them regulate body temperature, breathing and a mother’s heartbeat makes them feel more secure.

- Better for your back MummyHugs baby sling distributes the weight of your baby more evenly across your whole back. With the right posture, it actually makes it more comfortable than carrying a baby in arms.
