I had an over the shoulder baby holder with my last two and I really liked it. A lot of mommas say they don't like ring slings but I loved it. I do wish it didn't have as much padding. For this baby I got a Kozy Mei tei. I am thinking of getting a native Baby Carrier too.
Maya Wrap all the way! Like a ring sling with no padding. Very adjustable and I can wear it under my coat in the fall/winter. I have a big old coat I do up around the two of us and I know the baby is cozy.
This is my first so I'm not sure about what kind to use either! But I bought a Hotsling since I heard alot of things about it. And a girl I know sells Mobys and I've been thinking about getting one of those as well.
i just ordered a hot sling (tattoo/tea reversible) and i have an over the shoulder baby holder as well that my mom bought me...but yeah. lots of padding.
i haven't held a baby in it though so who knows.
