When you tighten the sling pull the top (or bottom rail) out at an angle AWAY from your body and tease the edges tight leaving the middle a hammock shape. Your babys weight "locks" the fabric into place in the rings. You will need to lift your babys weight with one hand while pulling the sling tail with the other until you are both comfortable.
