My good friend is due with her second - her first will be 2 yrs 3 months when the 2nd is born - & I think a sling is going to save her life! She didn't really get into it last time around. She had a Baby Bjorn that hurt her back (duh) & a friend gave her a wrap that she found too intimidating to use. Would an Ergo be a good one? I used one with DD but only from 4 months - is it any good for breastfeeding in when using the infant insert? I saw a mum the other day with what looked like a wrap/Ergo hybrid - it had a snap waistband - any idea what that might be?

An ergo would be ok with a small baby if you also bought the infant insert. A Pikkolo would probably work as it has a bottom that can be cinched narrower for tiny babies. Also a Beco butterfly or an Olives and Applesauce may work as they have internal harnesses.

I'm not sure what the carrier you saw was.

I personally didn't like the infant insert with the Ergo (returned it, actually), but I LOVE the Ergo so freaking much for bigger/older babies (like 4+ months).

For newborns my fave is the Moby, but you mention she was intimidated by a wrap in the past. (The Moby is actually super easy after you practice tying it on once or twice.)

Mom to dd (8), ds (6), and dd (1)
