DH, Hotsling, 5-6weeksDH, Hotsling, 3mo, sorta upright cradle carry?
DH loves his hotsling. I can't really do pouches. I have a super short torso and big boobs. If I get one that has the babe at the right height, the fabric is stretched too tight across my boobs--no room for babe. If I get one with room for babe, I'd be carrying below my waist.Zolo solarveil ring sling, cradle carry, 2mo
The shoulder isn't spread out very well in that pic. I liked the Zolo for summer. DS is an April baby, so I loved how lightweight and breathable the solarveil was. Once he could hold his head up, he adored the kangaroo carry, facing out and watching the whole world. If he started nodding off, I turned him around tummy-to-tummy.Ergo, front carry, 5mo
I love the closeness of the front carry. I didn't like the Ergo for the newborn stage, even with the insert. I think it's because my boobs made the fit really odd. Once he was old enough to stick his head above the boobs, he really liked the Ergo.Ergo, back carry, 17mo
I switched to a back carry around 12-13 months. My hips thanked me. For short jaunts, I often still do a front carry.
