One-handed baby sling

One-handed baby slingThis lady has lost the use of one arm following an accident. She found it difficult to lift and carry her baby and commercial baby carriers were not suitable since she was not able to first lift the baby.

A small hammock was made up with the ends attached to a 4” wide pertex sling that would go over her shoulders. Parachute cord tensioners ran along the edges of the hammock and were set by a toggle clamp. The baby is placed on the hammock. The sling is then put around the mother’s shoulder and the edge tensioner cords tightened. This has the effect of drawing the baby to her and lifting her in the sling.

She can now safely pick up her baby and carry her around.
