I have a Kangaroo Korner fleece pouch that I absolutely adored - we used that sucker for years and years. It's the only piece of baby gear I saved - that's how much I loved it.
Besides the fact that my last baby was a November baby and this one on the way is a June baby (no way can I carry an infant in fleece in July/August!) - I've been reading that the pouch slings aren't really acceptable anymore? At least for small infants? I can imagine it's still alright for a hip carry (although I found it much more comfortable early on).
I have no idea what to do. I loved how quick and easy the KK sling was - I could pop it on, pop baby in and be moving within 20 seconds. Everything else I see seems to be more cumbersome, have substantially more material or will take much longer to get baby positioned properly - and if that's the case, I'm afraid I won't even want to do much babywearing. :(
So help me out if you know more than I do! I'm totally overwhelmed with where to start and what my choices are. I had a Maya wrap once upon a time (10 years ago with my first baby) and barely ever reached for it. I just didn't like how much material I had to deal with, it wasn't as portable as the KK pouch and the sling would slip after some use, no matter what I tried to do differently.
Is there an awesome pouch style that's acceptable? Or a super, super easy sling that provides quick in and out for baby?
Thanks so much!
