We're hoping to adopt a newborn (expectant mother has chosen us, due in Apr.). DS is 6.5 and we walk to a lot of things together and I spend a lot of time hanging around outside while DS is playing. I'm thinking I will want to wear the baby quite a bit. I already have an old-style Ergo from when DS was little (no infant insert--I think the Ergo will be for down the road a bit, but I can get the new infant insert locally if I really want it after the baby is here) and a Gypsy Mama stretch wrap. I think I'd like to add a pouch sling, mainly because I like the simplicity and that it would fold up small for the diaper bag.
I'm 5 ft 7 inches tall and 135 pounds. I sort of care about how it looks, although I'd be okay with something pretty plain. Given that I've already laid out the money for the wrap, I'd really rather keep the cost of the pouch down. I'd prefer one that works over a long period of time, but good for newborn use is the highest priority. We live in San Francisco so the weather is cool year around.
Which pouch sling would you recommend?
