Hi, my daughter is 20lbs, 11 months old. I carry her everywhere, all the time and my arms are killing me lol. I want to do babywearing with her, and I have heard good things about the Hotsling, and it is pretty reasonably priced too. I want to carry her on my hip in this sling.
I am wondering if the sizing chart is accurate. I weigh 130, am 5'3" and about 22" from shoulder to hip I think. The size 2 Hotsling has my measurments, but I am at the max for weight and hip to shoulder measurment.
Anyone know if the slings run a little large or small? Does carrying a larger baby on my hip make a difference, for this should I buy a little larger sling?
Also, is there a difference when in the Hotsling description it says "pouch carrier sling" or "padded", or are they all the same? What is the difference if any, and which would be best for me?
