Comfy Joey Custom Ring Slings

in Kids


I love wearing my babies. When I wore Jayden, we used a wrap, pouch slings, and structured carriers. With Jaxon, we used a wrap very briefly and dove right on in to structured carriers. Structured carriers have been my goto, but now that it’s warmed up, I’ve been wanting a little more freedom from buckles and padded straps and something a little more dainty. I’ve always wanted a ring sling and the main thing that’s held me back was price.

When searching for rings slings comparable to a popular and more expensive brand… I discovered Comfy Joey and I literally squealed in excitement. Comfy Joey’s ring slings are SO gorgeous and their prices are right. They offer slings for everyday wear and special occasions. There’s something for everyone. Prices start at $62.50 for the linen blend and $72.50 for the linen slings. They also offer custom slings (available in silk as well) that range from $97.50 to $227.50. It all depends on how fancy you’re feeling.


While my budget is best fit for the linen blend and linen slings, let me share with you how fabulous the customs are. Ayesha of Comfy Joey let me design my own linen ring sling which I absolutely love (disclosure). It took me a bit to decide on the colors as I had so many vibrant color choices! I chose a color scheme that would compliment most of my earthy wardrobe. I chose ginger-chai as my main color and coral-rose, chocolate-brown, and lemon-grass for the tail panels.


The slings from the Design Your Own Sling Collection are luxurious. They feature a versatile CJ Hybrid Shoulder, which allows the fabric to be spread wide to hug the shoulder or gathered to eliminate pressure points and offer freedom of movement for the ring-side arm with very little bulk. I love these features because I can adjust the sling to our comfort as Jaxon grows.

To add to Comfy Joey’s fabulousity, they also offer toddler-width linens with a hybrid shoulder for extended wearing as well as sling to wrap conversions. All Comfy Joey Slings are made to order in the US with an estimated turnaround of 3-4 weeks. For a faster turnarond, Comfy Joey Slings can also be purchased at in-store and online retailers.


I don’t want to sound overzealous or anything… but this sling is everything. And because I’d love to be rewarded in store credit, I’ve signed on as an affiliate of Comfy Joey. So if you’re thinking about making a purchase, I’d love if you’d mention me and/or use my unique URL. It’s pool and beach season, so you may want to check out the mesh water slings. Hint hint, nudge nudge. 😉

    Aww, I so miss wearing my little one. Slings and wraps are so convenient, and work like a charm for a fussy baby. My baby’s a year old now, and while I do have a carrier for her, she wants to walk everywhere! Getting her in the carrier now is a serious struggle! LOL

      They are vintage circa 1970ish. I just scored him another pair. Both found on Ebay for about $6. You can check Etsy too!

    You have a beautiful baby and I love that baby sling. we were stationed in Korea (way back when) and they always wrapped their babies so they were carried on the back.

    I love this! I’ll have to remember this for when I decide to have kids. Or, keep it in mind for the next baby shower I attend. Your baby is absolutely gorgeous!

    I used the structured carriers when my daughter was young and she hated them! I wish I would’ve known about these. They look so much more comfortable. And you did a great job picking colors. I’m never good at that kind of stuff.

    I love that sling – especially the colors you chose. I baby-wore my daughter, but was always too intimidated by ring slings. No more babies for me, but it would make a special present for a baby shower for sure!

    I would have loved to have had this option when mine were tiny. Mom and baby both look comfortable and happy.

    This would make a nice baby shower present. Research has shown that babies benefit from skin to skin contact with their mothers, both emotionally and physically.

    I was never able to figure out how to wear my kids. With Jada I was given one of the structured ones but I never quite got the hang of it. With Jason I tried a sling but I was always afraid I was gonna smother him so I gave that up too lol. These look easy and comfortable to wear! I have a nephew coming in September so I may have to hook my sil up with one!

    I’ve been looking for a nice sling like this. The way you wear it with your baby makes it seems so easy and comfortable. I may just get this for myself

    I love the wider shoulder because the strain can get hard! Having babies that are born weighing 10 + lbs they grow fast so having something so stylish and comfy is fantastic as well as the fact its made in the USA! Thank you for the review!

    You make it look so easy & comfortable! When I had my son I really wanted to get a decent sling, but didnt. I did get something that never fit well, so I was discouraged & ended up using a baby Bjorn. I will look into Comfy Joey if I have another baby, which will hopefully happen!

    I saw your photos of this sling on Facebook, and admired how pretty it was. It reminded me of those awfully expensive Sakura Bloom slings, but more affordable. I like the idea that you can customize your sling too. Your colors are great together; they really accessorize your wardrobe nicely (and that baby too!).

    You are my baby wearing idol! I am so clueless when it comes to how the wraps and slings work, but you make it look so effortless! I’ll definitely keep Comfy Joey in mind in the coming months 😉 because I LOVE the idea of a water sling for the pool or the beach,, and the linen and linen-blend slings are just my cup if tea 🙂

    Baby is so precious…. I would have loved to have had one of these wraps when my kids were babies. Thanks for the review!

    I used a baby carrier with my youngest daughter and enjoyed it. The thing that made me very uncomfortable about baby slings and wraps is that they didn’t seem 100% secure. In the picture it seems as though you’re holding the bottom for support.

      It’s a habit of mine personally. I hold him/rest my hands when he’s in a structured carrier too. Since I was posing for photos, my instinct was to rest my hand nearby. I can wear him up higher with his legs spread more to get more support. He’s a heavy lil dude.

    I love baby wearing. These look like they would be comfortable for both the baby and the parent. I like that the material looks like it would be stretchy instead of stiff. I’m curious how it would hold up in the wash.

    These are simply gorgeous! I’ve never seen something so wonderful looking that is also functional. (And it definitely looks less heavy than structured carriers!)

    What an easy way to carry around your baby or toddler. I really do like the pattern and colors you were able to create. It is a bit pricy but would make a great baby shower gift for a family member, maybe in the silk? Of course the linen is a bit more affordable and probably would last longer.

    Those baby slings sure weren’t around when my kids were babies.
