My vote is for the Ergo. It is so so comfy, and really easy to use. It's also not girly at all. My dh loves ours.

My dh also thinks ring slings are girly, even though he loved wearing a pouch with dd when she was little and will wear almost any fabric in a mei tai. It's something about the tail.

My dh wore dd in our hotsling alot the first 2 months (all she did was cry-nurse-cry) and sometimes my boobs just needed a break. He's strap her on and do laps around out little living room.

now we've graduated to a mei tei and have an ergo tfor when shes even bigger.
dh likes the front carry better, though i think that will change as she gets older and he feels more confidant with her on his back.

Just had to revisit this thread to say:

The Blueberry BB-Slen I bought for the DH arrived yesterday, so I made him try it on last night.

My first thought was this thread and - TOTALLY SEXY!! :

My DH was also a little shy of babywearing, so I let him browse through That site is awesome because there are so many photos of people using the different slings and such, and also many photos of men as well.

My DH selected the Ergo and felt it was manly enough for him; but I'm not recommending the Ergo as much as recommending your DH look through photos and select one for himself.

my husband things ring slings are feminine, because of the tail fabric.
but he uses the ergo whenever we go out. He's not opposed to pouches, but he prefers a back carry over hip, because he's carrying our toddler (I sling the baby)
