I used an ErgoBaby for my first son when he was 6+ months, but I'm wondering what other choices are out there. I have plenty of time to research (see ticker), but I can't stop thinking about them now. Which ones do you like? Moby? Something else?
I have a mei tai that I really like. I could use it for her when she was a newborn as well. I got mine from http://www.meitaibaby.com/ I liked all the fabric choices to choose from.
ETA: sorry not clicky!
I have an Ergo that I just bought and LOVE it, DD is 6 weeks and we used it without the newborn insert and she loved it--fell right to sleep.
I also have a peanut shell sling--and hate it. It's so awkward and I feel like i have to keep my hands on her at all times.
I love my woven wraps, because unlike the moby you can use them well into toddlerhood, and you can wear LO on your front or back.
My siggy is LO in a front carry Vatanai wrap at about 12months.
i have a moby, a ring sling (from sleeping baby productions), and an infantino mei tai.
i use the ring sling the most because it is the least complicated. i like the idea of the moby, but it's just SO HOT, plus i feel like it's too stretchy and i have to keep my hands on DD, which defeats the purpose (DD is not that into it either). the mei tai isn't bad, but i think i'll like it better when she is older and she can be legs out more comfortably.
I bought a ton of them because I got them at a hugely reduced price at a local consignment shop. My favorite is by far the Baby Bjorn (I have two different styles). I feel completely comfortable with my newborn in it. It is sooo easy to adjust and to get him in and out of. I use it when I do stuff around the house, go for walks, hit the mall, etc. Love it!!!
The moby is cool but I felt like I was suffocating him. Maybe when he gets bigger and has neck control I will try a different position.
I also have the Ergo but haven't used yet because I didn't want to buy the newborn insert when the Bjorn works just fine. I plan to use the Ergo when he's big enough. I like that it has a zipper so I can store stuff when I'm out and about.
