I never really got into baby wearing with DD. I had a snugli and hated it, then got a stretchy wrap and found it really cumbersome. DD wasn't a baby that needed to be worn so I didn't really go further with that. Now she's 20 months old and always on her feet - I should seriously sell my two strollers lol - and I'm expecting our second in July. I've thought of the logistics of mothering a newborn while chasing a toddler and really think a good carrier is the way to go. I'm very attracted to ring slings because they seem easy on/off and easy in/out for baby. I also love the ease of adjustment and that nothing needs to be tied around my waist (neither comfortable nor flattering).
What are your experiences/thoughts of using a ring sling with a newborn? Does it sound like the right thing for me?
I have seen two available locally that really appeal to me. I'd also appreciate any reviews of these two particular items:

Thanks in advance for any info
