Anyone try these? I just purchased one at target for a whole 12.70 regularly 59.99, just wondering if they are good or not? The reviews on target.com are pretty good. Here's the one i bought: http://www.target.com/Balboa-Baby-Adjustable-Sears-Black-Signature/dp/B001Q80GO0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&searchView=grid5&keywords=slings&fromGsearch=true&sr=1-1&qid=1294358895&rh=&searchRank=target104545&id=Balboa%20Baby%20Adjustable%20Sears-Black%20Signature&node=1038590&searchSize=30&searchPage=1&searchNodeID=1038590&searchBinNameList=subjectbin%2Cprice%2Ctarget_com_primary_color-bin%2Ctarget_com_size-bin%2Ctarget_com_brand-bin&frombrowse=0

okay nevermind i just opened the sling up and it is not even a that sling it is a peanut shell, now off to see how to even work that sling. It looks to be new and large, but not sure how to work it. Doh, guess someone returned it and kept the better sling!

 

ETA: okay looks like i will need to return it, I thought large would be okay, but it seems a bit big and the size chart says i need a medium, I hope i don't get any trouble returning it.

I bought one and it didn't work well for us until ds was about 6 months old, and by then he was too squirmy and heavy for a sling.  I have never liked slings anyway though, I prefer the truly hands off experience of the baby bjorn and ergo.
