Re: Best slings and carriers?
Sorry, I did not realise this was research, let me be more thorough;What did you find to be the best sling/carrier for you?
The carrier I use is the Baby Trekker http://www.babytrekker.com/index.htm
.What are the pros and cons of that kind of sling/carrier?
There are several features that I realy like about this carrier. First, it is totaly washable, foldable and storable. It takes up so little room in the closet and the car. It is also adjustable for most size people and has a convinient pocket on the front that is just the right size for a diaper and my wallet. I also like the versatility in positions. I can wear her facing in or out and on the front or back. She will also fit in it until she is around four so it will last a realy long time. Another thing I like is that it is made in Canada so I did not have to figure out shipping and currency rates when I bought it (well, actualy, my mom bought it for us as a gift
) The last feature that I realy found a pro is that it fits OVER my jacket, this is vitaly important in a Manitoba winter, :LOL
The cons; I think it would be uncomftorable for a very small baby and it has very little head support. It is also very expensive. The last can is that I have yet to be able to get her onto my back alone without great discomfort and contortions. I can see where practice might make it easier but for now it is just not worth the headache!What other slings/carriers did you try and their pros and cons?
Only the snuggli and it was everything they say it is. I found it hard on the back, unweildly, un washable, only one position and cheesy colour scheme. The only good thing I can say about it is that I got it realy cheap.
Hope this is more what you are looking for!
