1) Spread the fabric over your shoulder. When the fabric starts creeping into your neck, it can create strain and discomfort. It's easiest to spread the fabric over your shoulder before you start to tighten the ring sling around baby. You can use the fabric to cap your shoulder as much as you'd like based on what is comfortable to you. Depending on the type of shoulder on the ring sling (gathered or pleated, for example) you may have more or less fabric to spread out.
