The shoulder thing is why I kind of hated my Mei Tai. It's a great carrier but since my DS is a giant it was only comfortable for a short period of his life, then he got too heavy to wear with the narrower shoulder straps. I adore my Boba 3G (the Ergo was super comfy as well but too short in the body for DS). My plan is once I figure out how to wrap, just to leave the thing on most of the time and pop baby in and out
I have a friend who did that and it looked super comfy and easy.
And Serafina it's awesome that we will be wrap twins!! I love the colour of that one becuase it is to me a nice autumn set of colours perfect for a fall baby, and it will work for either a boy or a girl. I had been looking at a gorgeous teal green one but it was $100 more. And this one is already in Canada (the teal one was in the US) so it will get to me faster
I'd love to have gotten it for $50 but I figure $150 for a new wrap isn't bad... and I have some time to get it broken in before baby arrives.
splath - That wrap is beautiful! I looked at a similar one (or maybe it was the same one) but wanted a linen blend.
haurelia - How do you like your Girasol wrap? I heard mixed reviews, it seemed like people were loving the older Giras and not the newer ones. As a wrap newbie I was afraid to take a chance on them.
Serena - I'm so sorry for your loss
Hugs to you and your family. My dad has asbestos in his lungs as well and it terrifies me.
