replyI just PM'd you, but I'll post what I wrote here too:
There are so many wonderful slings out there... much much better than the nojo. The bjorn is nice, but I prefer a sling to that style carrier.
Too funny about your bro! I live <15 minutes from Leonardtown! Heck, I was born there! Oh.. and I saw your signature.. I'm a bradley birthin' mom too... Anna was born on 1/23/03.
On that note, Anna is 5.5months old and we love our Simply Attached. I sell these now for Mother of Eden through their Make a Difference Consulting Program. Mine is blue and my showing sample is plum.
Anna rides in the front carry of the Simply Attached. It has a little bounce, which some folks don't like, but Anna prefer's to have a little bounce. You have to tie it snug before adding the baby because it's made of fleece and will stretch once the baby is added. We use it at the grocery store, target, hardware store, neighborhood. It has several carry's available (just like all wrap slings) and it comes with picture instructions on how to wear it. I personally liked my adjustable fleece pouch for a tiny baby, but Anna's age just seems perfect for a wrap sling. Tereson, the owner of Mother of Eden has picture of her with her much older baby in it. I can get her permission to email you a photo if you're interested. She posted it on our yahoo group and it's a really great pic. Let me know if you'd like to see one. The website photos of her with the sling aren't that good. They plan to update with better pics in the future.
Wrap slings allow for lots of different carry's, but it's not an easy on easy off sling. I normally need 2 minutes to get it on... but really, what's 2 minutes for all that comfort??
