I posted this yesterday but it seems to have vanished so I apologize if i'm doubling up!
My babywearing experience is going through a bit of a rough time at the moment. First I bought an Bjorn (before I knew better!), I don't use it. I have a Moby but most of the time I find it too hot, can't get the tension right, it's either too loose or too tight, DD always seems crooked in it and it's difficult to put it on outside without it dragging all over the floor. It's also a sure thing to send her to sleep which I don't always want! Then I bought a Beco but I think she may be too small for it without the insert, she's nearly 19 weeks. I love it but she cries either in it or when I take her out. I think it splays her hips apart too much, I hope she will grow into it.
So I was wondering about a ring sling. I just want something to take the weight of my arms because I do carry her around a lot.
Are there different positions or is it just basically how you would hold her on your hip with the cloth around her. Are ones with padded shoulders best? Is the material stretch or not?
If anyone has any experiences or recommendations I would really appreciate it!
