OK, so I had a little paypal and I saw a Kozy on e-bay w/ a BIN of $45 and couldn't resist . It was supposed to be for dipes, lol. Guess I have a new addiction . So far, I've only used sarongs as slings and a SUPER hot sari as a wrap. I've never tried an ABC....am I gonna regret this? Please reassure me b/c I have this sinking feeling in my tummy that I spent too much cash (down, tightwad, down)...

I'm so glad to hear that. How easy is it compared to a wrap? I have no problems getting ds on/off my back. Is it similar or will I have a harder time? Sorry to be a pest...I'm just antsy, I guess.

I just got mine last week (I was on the wait list) and have to say dd and I love it. She's been requesting it over the sling for hikes and I think mine is so pretty too. You can always resell it on ebay (or to any the of the mama's here) if you don't like it.

It's much easier than a wrap, actually. Don't worry, you'll love it. It's very versatile. Yesterday, my 22 mo dd had half-woken from a nap and was nursing/dozing in my lap when a customer came in. I hoisted her up with her head on my shoulder and got my 6 yo to tie my Kozy behind my waist, then I just brought it up around her and tied the top straps and then latched her back on. She was happy as could be, and it was very convenient for me!

I don't have a Kozy but I just my ABC!! I think you're going to have a new favorite carrier once you receive it.

I dont have one yet (I am on the waiting list) but from everything I have heard about them you wont be sorry you spent the money. And like a pp said if you dont like it you can always resell it her or ebay. There is a hot market for them since they are hard to get so your money isnt lost!

Cool! I'm really starting to get excited now. This is my first non-homemade carrier. I can't wait!

We bounced around, lol. Point Au Chien, Bayou Black, Houma, Montegut, New Orleans...oh the list goes on. Mainly back and forth between LA and MS. I went to school at SLU in Hammond. I really miss the food. There are "cajun" resturaunts here, but they want an arm and a leg for a plate of beans&rice cause it's "ethnic" . I especially crave a good crawfish boil, an Abita Purple Haze, and some freaking RAIN!!

Wow, you got a really good deal on a very hard to find item! Just a month ago I saw a similar kozy listed for $55 on babywearing-swap. You won't regret it, trust me! I do have a kozy and I would have bought that one in a second had I seen it.

It's a lt blue, tan, and white striped fabric. It's nice and neutral so maybe my dh will use it,too . I think it's going to be cool having a carrier w/ a pocket.

Scubamom-How goes the reading?

reading is going great, im still on the first one and grabbing moments when i can. slow but sure.
i never realised how much i read until i had ds and now hardly ever read as never have solid chunks of time with nothing needing done.
although my dh is good and i still do get nice long soaks in the bath with my book occasionally!!!!

enjoy your kozy u will love it, my dh resisted at first as wanted me to get a black one, but he wears all the time now as so comfortable.

abc's were much more versitile that i first thought. the straps made it easier for me to handle than a wrap at first. it was a good inbetween the sling world and the wrap world. =D

congrats on a great deal!

Just remember if you don't like it there are plenty of buyers out there. Trading Post or ebay or other...
If it was a good price then it's never a bad idea to try something new.

I got it today and it ROCKS! This is by far the most comfy carrier I've used yet. We've only played around a bit. It is definitely easier to get on my back than a wrap.....so easy, I was sure I didn't have it right, lol. This is awesome
