My DD is nearly 15 mos old/21 lbs and loooves her old Balboa sling. She has gotten so used to the cradle hold; it is her most comfortable position, except now her big long baby legs are starting to hang over the sides. Does anyone know of a sling that I can use the cradle hold in with a bigger baby? I thought I remembered someone mentioning one with a big pouch but can't seem to find it via Google...
Pslings by nature are very wide, but they are a bit harder to find new in the US because their store/distributor closed earlier this year. You can buy them new from Japan though, or look for a used one on The Babywearer's for sale or trade board.
Kalea also makes super wide slings, I have heard great things about them.
Good luck in your search!

I have a p sling and love it for DD (23 pounds). It is linen and very supportive fabric plus a huge pouch, she can totally snuggle in it. It's a little different to get used to because of the way the shoulder is but once I got used to it, I loved it. It's cool because you adjust it once and then just pop in and out, you do not need to adjust it again.
I would not buy a new one because they are very, very expensive plus they are hard to break in. Go to thebabywearer.com FSOT and there are a lot of them on sale for really great prices.
