Ladies, I have a toddler who weighs about 23 lbs and i am expecting twins this Feb, I've been going over many reviews and I would love to try a sling. I see that the linen Sakura Bloom one is very popular and am interested in getting one, any thoughts or comments? or what do you recommend? Please Help :)

When I was raising my babies, there were not so many fancy (and expensive!) options available. I used a simple "O Ring" sling that served us very well from infancy through 'big toddler'hood' > It was terrific. Dr. Sears used to sell them and I don't know if he does any longer. They were the sturdiest and most reliable slings on the market!!

I hear great things about Sakura bloom but I've never tried one. I have a maya wrap ring sling and love it but it has a padded shoulder which isn't ideal for me but it's perfect for my husband. Is there a baby store near you where you could try out different slings to see which shoulder is best for you? If there's a local babywearing group, that would be an excellent place to start. I hear wrap conversion ring slings are amazing too. You can always join a babywearing group on Facebook to see who's nearby.
