I bought it because of their stylish fabric choices. If I had to do it over again, I would buy one with a adjustable ring, like the ones at Maya Wrap. Mine is adorable, and I do love it, but it is a little cumbersome getting on & off.

People stop me every day and ask about it. But no matter how great it looks, you have to get one that FITS. Slings with rings are adjustable so you can make them comfortable (and safe!) no matter how big your babe is. The Mayawrap is easy to get the hang of using. I have both a plain one and a really pretty pattern.

I had a fleece one for winter, and got a cotton version for summer. My 15-month-old still loves riding around in it, and it’s perfect for trips to estate sales or anywhere I can’t let her run around or let her ride in a cart.

Amazing fabric choices, and the best part – they come fitted to your size, so you don’t have to mess with the “rings” and “tails” of some slings. Mine is reversible, and it folds up small enough to tuck into my purse. They are available at http://www.hotslings.com, but I happened to notice a limited selection available at Target the other day.

I am 7 months pregnant and can still very easily wear my sling to hold my 15 month old daughter. It is the best!

I use it for my 16 month old daughter almost daily. But, I could definitely see myself using it on an infant too.

I love my Ergo baby carrier–very easy on my back, but like it better for an older baby or child. When they’re small it seems to swallow them up. My 2 1/2 year old still likes to be carried around in it sometimes just for fun. You might check out http://www.motherhood.com–they had a magazine article recently detailing different types of baby carriers–pros and cons, how to wear, etc.

Around 4 months, I switched to a ring sling (I also felt more confident as a sling-wearer by this time). The Moby is challenging, but it was GREAT when I wanted to carry him around the house for long stretches of time (very comfortable for us both), and when it was cold outside and I wanted to go for a walk. I still use my ring sling every day, and my son is nearly 24 months. Try http://www.zolowear.com for pretty designs.

I’ve used slings similar to the maya wrap in the past, but found all that extra fabric and adjusting it to be cumbersome. I have a few friends that use the new native and love it. It’s especially good for newborns. http://www.newnativeinc.com

It is a ring sling (I personally found these to be much easier to adjust and much more versatile than a pouch) that will work from birth up to 30 pounds or so. I used mine with both my boys and just loved it. http://www.mayawrap.com Some of the fabric options are a bit too hippy-ish for my taste, but the basic black was a great match for me. The sling is breathable, comfortable, and portable.

I have a Rockin Baby Sling and a Nest sling I just picked up from Urban Baby Runway. I prefer ring slings over pouch slings, but I also love my Moby Wrap and Mei Tais that I purchased locally.

This link has a picture of the newborn option of using it like a sling, then it has other carrying options for when they’re older. I want to check it out before my next baby. Glad to read about other kinds to check out too. http://www.ergobabycarrier.com/gallery/2/pages/image0.html

I didn’t use it when my daughter was a newborn, but I can see I would have loved it. She’s 19months old now so I only use it in those times when a stroller doesn’t work and she can’t walk around. It’s awesome–and folds up flat in my purse!

We’re big fans of both of you!
