I'm looking to design our own sling.
Here's the story:
We will be taking Maggie on vacation with us in a couple weeks. (She will be two months old.)
She absolutely loves being in her sling, but I can't stand the design of the one we have. (It was a gift from a friend.) It is a Snugli Grow-With-Me, and while she seems quite content in it and is very safe, it hurts me and is very hot for her. Since she already has heat rash from refusing to sleep anywhere but on us, I need a different one for the beach.
So, I am going to make my own. I have found lots of helpful websites about sewing your own. (Although if you have a favorite site, I would love to take a look.)
What I am hoping you all can do for me is tell me what you like best and least about slings you have used. That way, I can pick and choose the best aspects and leave out the worst, and hopefully come up with something that works for us.
So, what do you like? What don't you like?
metal versus nylon rings
padded or not
Please take a second to me out. Thanks SO much!
