How come I never hear anyone ever talk about these slings?

I always hear raves about KK fleece pouch and I have to say I like my Cozy Baby SO much better. I bought one last year and it has an adjustable zipper instead of the snaps that KK has - so much nicer.

I bought my friend a KK fleece pouch (love buying different slings to compare!) and all the fabric on KK around the shoulder drove me nuts. I felt like my whole arm was constricted. Yuck.

The Cozy Baby carrier I have has a much tapered shoulder area. And I actually bought the windpro fleece so it is a thicker fleece, but great for winter.

Anyway, I was just wondering if anyone else out there has the Cozy Baby and if you like it. Am I all alone????

Link, please?

And I don't know....I don't think anything could sway me from my loyalty to the KK adjustable fleece. I've been using it for a year and a half now and I still love it!

I looked for one of these last winter but I don't think they make them anymore?

It doesn't look like she's taking orders Too bad 'cause I've never had any success with our KKAFP. It's one of the few slings that just didn't work for us. I think it must be a dud because I'm pretty sling-wearing savvy and I find it next to impossible to get ds into it easily, the rails are not stretchy at all and they've left awful marks on his legs no matter how accurately I adjust them. I, too, dislike the shoulder restriction. Anyway a bit OT there. If the Cozy Baby fleece were available I might check it out.

Equanimity Baby also makes a fleece pouch with Malden Mills fleece. I don't know if it's adjustable, though.

Do the zippers on the other one work like the zippers on the MWAP? In other words, does it create a fold or flap when you bring the zippers together, or can the two ends of the sling come completely apart?

The sling comes completely apart on the Cozy Baby when you unzip it.

I guess one reason I'd go for the KK is that I specifically wanted a pouch-style carrier. But it looks like a nice sling!

The Cozy is a pouch-style carrier. And the Equanimity is adjustable with zippers, too. But it's pretty bulky around the shoulder like the KK. I've never seen a Cozy in person. But they sure look cute!
