1. What carrier do you primarily use and what age of child(ren) are you using it for?
I use a ring sling for Trystan - I started when he was a peanut (just a few weeks old) and sometimes use it even now, when we are standing somewhere for long periods of time. If we are going somewhere we will be walking a longer route, like for a hike, I use a Mai Tei back carrier. I got that a few months ago.
2. If you could only have ONE carrier- what would it be and why?
Hmmm... I'd have to choose my ring sling. It is just easier to get him in and out of. The Mai Tei is fabulous, but once he's in it, it is a pain to get him out of it unless we are somewhere I can sit down and let him out - it's just more of a hassle to get in and out of. The ring sling is easy in and easy out. However, the Mai Tei is more comfortable to wear him in now that he is over 30 lbs.
3. How many other carriers do you have and use?
I have the two I mentioned and I also have a solarveil - we only use the in the pool, though. Tried it in the shower and he hated it... *sigh*
4. What carriers have you tried that you do not like and why?
Not real crazy about the front carriers - the ones made by Evenflo, etc... they are okay, but nursing is difficult in them and they don't fit for long and the baby's legs seem spread too far apart - it just seems unnatural.
Thanks in advance!
