What 2 slings would you buy?
I'm in the process of picking out slings for my second child. My first came much earlier than expected so I hadn't bought a sling yet. Turns out it was a good thing since she hated any kind of confinement what-so-ever. And I didn't mind holding her all the time.
I'm not going to have that kind of luxury with this baby since my dd is barely 2 and requires so much hands on time. I love toddlerhood, BTW.
I was thinking of picking up a hotsling now, but well, my vanity is getting in the way. No offense to anyone, but I don't think they are very pretty. That
is just my personal taste. Although I hear that she is adding silk brocade. Does anyone know when that might happen or how much they would cost?
I have been drooling over the Zolo silk slings. They are just my style! I would just buy one of those and get it over with, however, I have heard they are not good in hot climates, and since we are moving to the deep South (and I mean deep :LOL ) I'm worried it will not be very practical.
I was thinking about buying both, so I have a practical everyday sling, and a pretty sling for cooler days. Are they both equally comfortable? I have scoliosis very bad and my back hurts me most days. Also, because of the curvature I will only be able to wear the sling on my "high" shoulder, so it needs to be very comfy. I cannot wear a back-carry, so I'm hoping a sling will help me out.
One last question
can you throw a diaper bag over your shoulder and wear a sling? I'm having a hard time picturing that...
Thanks for all of your wisdom.
