1. What carrier do you primarily use and what age of child(ren) are you using it for?

Wrap - at the moment it's usually my Hug-a-bub, 10 week old

2. If you could only have ONE carrier- what would it be and why?

EEEEK - the horrors!!! : It would br my wrap, it's so versitile and really keeps baby secure and comfy.

3. How many other carriers do you have and use?

I also have two ring slings (an OTSBH and a TaylorMade) but we really don't use them - I've never been able to get the ring sling to be as comfy as my wrap and DS doesn't seem to care for them either. We also have a Sachi Mei Tai that we like a lot for quick trips - DS likes the feel of it about as much as the wrap, but I still find the wrap to be more comfy for long use.

4. What carriers have you tried that you do not like and why?

Ring sling as mentioned about. I especially didn't like the OTSBH as there was just way too much padding for us.

Homemade cotton voile wrap, dd is 15 months old

2. If you could only have ONE carrier- what would it be and why?


The wrap, only thing that works well now (I've never tried an ABC - that might work well too)

3. How many other carriers do you have and use?

Homemade pouches and a ring sling, pouch was nice when dd was little

4. What carriers have you tried that you do not like and why?

Never got into the ring sling, but that was probably more the fault of that particular sling

1. What carrier do you primarily use and what age of child(ren) are you using it for?

Peekaboo Fleece Pouch with DD 4 months (in kangaroo carry).

2. If you could only have ONE carrier- what would it be and why?

The Peekaboo! It's stretchy and the fleece is not too hot. Both DH and I can use it even though our sizes are pretty different (5'7'' and 6'3''), it's simple to get on and off, no fooling with adjustments, and DD just seems to sit comfortably more easily than with others I've tried.

3. How many other carriers do you have and use?

Hotsling - occasionally if it's too hot for fleece.
Angelpack Mai Tai - still getting the hang of it, but looking forward to trying the back carry!

4. What carriers have you tried that you do not like and why?

OTSBH - padding got in the way, always difficult to position DD right
New Native - not stretchy at all, sizing is weird, seems to hang WAY too low
Snugli - DD actually liked it, but the straps always slipped off my shoulders (!)
Maya - the best of the four, but it cut into my neck and I find I don't care for adjustables.
