I want a sling I can just throw on and go anywhere with. The Moby is taking too long. Also, my baby keeps sliding down. I need for her to be able to be more upright in the cradle hold. She hates tummy to tummy, but she has acid reflux, so she needs to be at an incline, but in the moby she keeps sliding down. It may just be her small size. She was only 4 pounds at birth and is just now 6.5, so she may have these problems in any sling or wrap at first.
Finally, we are both sweating like crazy! We live in Houston, so it is definitely going to be getting probably 20 degrees hotter than it is now, so we need something a little cooler. I noticed that the pool pouch is on sale thru tomorrow, so I thought I'd buy that even though I really can't afford it - just to keep cool! I wasn't sure if it is too stretchy though? I want something that will be snug and allow me to hold her up high...I hate carrying her low.
If the pool pouch isn't recommended, do you guys have another recommendation? I need something under $40, as I am going to sell the Moby in order to pay for the Hotsling or whatever sling I decide to get it and don't have a lot of money to spend. But I have to find something FAST, because this child does NOT like to be put down and I haven't gotten a thing done in 4 weeks.
And I agree, even with a tiny baby you ought to be able to get a nice secure upright hold. When you pre-tie the Moby make sure you're tying it very snugly as it will loosen up over time.

Oh, I also ordered an Ergo with an infant insert. I know it willbe extremely hot and it was way too expensive, but it is the only carrier that looked easy to put her in the position I need her.
I think, after she's 4 or 5 months old, I'm going to get the Sachi Solarweave Mei Tai, too. That one looks AWESOME and oooh so cool.
Thanks again for your help!!!
