> Mom with a bum shoulder... hug a bub? ergo? Kozy carrier?
I'm not sure what to get, but I'm leaning towards a hug a bub (it looks hot, though).
Ack!! I'm a WAHM due in early August. I have a bum right shoulder that doesn't like to bear weight, so I'm looking for something comfortable that I can wear for longer periods of time.
I don't think this one would be bad, either:http://www.thebabyspace.net/
If only one shoulder is bum, I think you should be okay with any sling as long as you wear it on the other shoulder
I've tried that... it doesn't work very well when I'm right handed. It worked pretty good to put a toddler in a sling and then slide her around behind my left arm, but it killed my right shoulder
I ended up just getting good at being one handed and would tuck her between my hip and left arm so she was facing out and could watch what I was doing. I'm just looking for new options
for the new peanut
All three of these are great carriers, but the HaB is definitely the best suited for newborns. It's super comfortable, very versatile, and you'll get a tonne of use out of it. I highly recommend this carrier for any age baby, but I think would be perfect with a little new one snugged up against you!
As for heat... I used a HaB last summer with my then 6-8 month old and didn't find it that bad at all. On the hottest days I try to stay inside in AC, but in truth any time you have a baby up against you it's going to be hot regardless of the carrier or the weather!
You can get the Ergo with an infant insert (which I haven't tried) but I really don't think it would be as comfortable or cosy as a sling/wrap/pouch.
The Kozy can be used with a newborn but again, isn't the best option. This carrier works best after 3 or 4 months.
Thank you. I'm thinking of doing the hub a bub and getting 1 sling and 1 kozy later. The kozy looks easy enough that my dh would probably use it. This is his first baby and he's warming up to AP better than I thought he would (of course... he sees the results in my older kids
How about a podegi
? Too hot for summer, but maybe for later? Also, between my Kozy and Ellaroo wrap, the wrap is MORE comfortable on my shoulders.
