A lot of people start out with wraps first before they move on to other carriers. When my dd (11) was a baby, I had no clue about anything babywearing related, so we used the OTSBH. She was easy-going and loved it, but when my son was born, he hated laying down and wanted to be able to sit up and see. I personally am not great with wraps, it sadly took me more time to get him into the wrap than it would to actually be in the store, lol. Liked mei tais and made me a few, but I needed something with more support, so SSCs were the route for us.
I think all kids/wearers are different, and what works for one may not work for another. Our wearing styles are as different as our children are and really, the best thing for a new babywearer to do is to experiment with different ones to find the one that is right for them. If you have a sling library close, they are great resources.
