Is this a Maya wrap? I would like to be able to wear them this way now. I don't mind buying yet another sling/wrap/carrier if it means I'll be able to carry them both now.
OWIEOWIEOWIE! OMG I just looked at all the pics and for GOD'S SAKE i don't think a ONE of those POOR women has their slings on right! OUCH!
The two double slinging photos are both unknown slings (the second looks like a sling pouch combo) and are quite possibly homemade. Slinging two and two in one sling are both maya wraps! A sling should never be bunched (like the slinging two pic), esp bunched at the neck! The Double slings photo is two OTSBH, but again, OWIE!
I prefer two pouches or a pouch and a sling because the rings tend to get in the way otherwise. For wearing babies under 3 months I would do this. For bigger then three months I would HIGHLY recommend doing front/back carries or possibly two hip carries (in ring slings or pouches or hip carriers). My girls are pretty small (11.5 lbs each) but that's still 23 lbs hanging off my front when they're in the wrap
I'll try to post more pics of the girls in pouches and perhaps a pouch RS combo (I only have one RS though).
I like maya wraps, personally. I find them the most comfortable of the ring slings. Alot of people love Sleeping baby productions ring slings but Jan is currently 7 or 8 months pregnant and will be stopping sewing on Nov 30th until as late as sometime in the spring for her baby moon. Her pleating system for the shoulder is really comfortable for alot of people, but I personally find it hurts my shoulder and slips (I have very rounded shoulders though). I also use Maya Wrap adjustable pouches (which have been discontinued
but there are lots of lovely pouches out there (karma baby, mother's milk, kangaroo corner... etc).
