ok, so I want to get my SIL a carrier for her bday. she has a 6 mon. old. what she currently uses is a snugli, but she's mentioned before that it's not really comfy now her baby is getting bigger. she liked the look of my hotsling when I carried her daughter in the hip style carry. but I don't think that would be a good one since she would only be able to use it hip carry because her baby not having been a sling or pouch carry from a young age doesn't like her legs to be bunched up. Ease of use would be a must because if its too difficult to use i don't think she'll use it. something comfy, something to use facing out, back and hip carry. I was thinking a MT if baby can face out in the front. but it needs to be something somewhat easy on my pocket book. If a MT would be best does anyone know a MT maker a little but cheaper than babyhawk but still good quality?
