I'm inspired to pull out my Kozy Carrier (I gave up on the front carry/back carry long ago) and will see if my 2.5 yr old wants in!

Great pics!

I've been wanting this particular sling however I didn't know what it was called. I thought the mei tai was a regular sling.

I really like my Bjorn however I want something more cloth/sling like rather than the style the Bjorn is. A woman in my LLL group had an older version of one of these and I wanted one so bad.

They ones similar to the mei tai are different in the fact that they only have TWO long straps at top, none at the bottom. I had never seen that!

I don't know what the difference is between a Podegi and a Hmong exactly-- but it is one of those two. GORGEOUS!!

Yep, that's a pod! I would have certainly purchased one as well! I would do anything for an authentic pod or MT! Those pictures were just wonderful! Thanks so much for sharing!
