> Adjustable Pouch Carriers - zippers or snaps?
I just saw a Kangaroo Korner Fleece Pouch in real life this weekend. It seems like what I've been looking for! I had an OTSBH with my first two and it was hot and bulky and they never felt secure to me. I also just wasn't thrilled with how it looked (yes, vain, I know!).
I checked out the website and see that they make them in twill as well (concerned that the fleece will be too hot in California - especially since this babe will be born in the summer). I also saw another pouch that is adjustable with zippers rather than snaps.
Just wondering what your experience is? Other recommendations for a pouch style sling? Do you find the fleece to be too hot? It DOES look cozy!
Lets see, fleece in the summer - not for me :LOL I did use the cotton KK pouch for Neve when she was born. I used it non-stop for the first 2 -3 months - a definite lifesaver!!!
A pouch with zippers?? I've never seen one - do you have a link?
I have a fleece, windproof sling pouch from cozybabysling.com. Its' awesome- its been a total life saver in Maine this winter. I know they make regular fabric ones too, and I am pretty sure they adjust the same way. Mine has 3 zippers and a velcro tab that covers the zipper. Its really comfy.www.cozybabysling.com
oh, and they are fabulous to work with.
I find the fleece too hot in the summer in California (Silicon Valley), but the cotton KK Pouch is great in the summer as substitute. I personally prefer the look and feel of snaps to zippers. The zippers that I'e seen used on pouches have to be very large to be effective, and I feel like that makes them more bulky and less attractive.
I don't tink there is anything vain about wanting your sling to look good on you. Yo have to wear it after all!
