Sakura Bloom Ring Sling vs Scout

Figuring out your new family dynamic as you welcome your first baby, or your fourth can be full of unforgettable moments. If we’re being honest, it can range from blissful snuggles to managing overwhelming to-do lists. Knowing which carrier to use throughout the day can help ease your transition and hopefully allow a moment to breathe it all in. Let’s share some of our favorite aspects of the Sakura Bloom Ring Sling and Scout carriers and why we reach for them in different situations.


Scout is a hybrid blend of several carrier features. It highlights the adjustability of the traditional Asian inspired Meh Dai, the comfort of a soft structure carrier, and the beauty of a ring sling. The custom fit panel forms to your little one from 7- 45 pounds with the ability to adjust its height and width. This is a great option when you are going to be out for a while and like the support of both shoulder straps, but the freedom of a waist band that is almost unnoticeable.

When life keeps moving and you are out running errands, cheering on a sporting event, or taking a hike in the great outdoors, Scout is a great option to have. When your little one is ready for a new vantage point (once sitting unassisted), you can opt for a back carry which affords an entirely new found freedom, for both of you also.


The Ring Sling is a versatile carrier that is designed to be a custom fit each time it is worn and perfectly supports your baby in a secure and ergonomic position. It is best suited for babies from 8-35 pounds, and can be worn in a variety of ways to carry your little one with the convenience of simply adjusting one strip of fabric and the rings. It’s sleek design is perfect for cocooning the smallest of babes to our ever growing toddlers.

When you need to run round town, pick up older siblings from school and that unplanned nap happens, or you’d like to enjoy a warm plate of food hands free, a ring sling is our go to. It’s perfect for quick carries and allows you to still manage life with a little one.

Both Scout and the ring sling are an integral part of our day to day, and we often find that both come in handy throughout the day.
