Mod Stripes - Muted Ring Sling

Modern Babywearing designed learning stripes... SWOON!

What is a learning stripe you ask? Learning stripes have 3 different stripes going the long way down the wrap or ring sling. These 3 stripes make it easier to figure out how to tighten a carrier evenly across baby's back. When you tug on the black stripe it corresponds to the black hem across baby's back, when you tug on the grey stripe it corresponds with the grey hem, etc. Want to check if your carrier is twisted? Teaching stripes make it lightening fast to visually check if your carrier is twisted!
