When I'm out and about I pop my DS in my Kangarro Korner pouch for naps. But he seems to have outgrown it. It's still great for when he's awake but it's not as cozy for sleeping. What's your favorite sling/pouch for sleep? I'm looking for something where DS and I can be tummy to tummy but where most of his body is comfortably covered and hidden from outside stimuli (to whatever extent that is possible!). Thanks!

The only thing DS will sleep in is a mei tai on my back (not front... weird...) or a wrap on my front (but not back... lol...)

With a wrap you can pull the two crosses over his head sorta, so he can't see. With a mei tai on the front you could get one w/ a headrest to pull up =D like a babyhawk.

I think a RS is better than a pouch for tummy to tummy. With a RS you can adjust the top rail so it is nice and snug around their neck so their head doesn't bob around

ETA: I hope you all know what I mean about the top rail of the sling. I do let my babies breath LOL

My fave is the Maya Lightly Padded. DD always falls right to sleep.

For two-shoulder comfort and ease of use, I love mei tais! My dd spent a significant part of her babyhood sleeping in one on my back. If your child's arms are out when he falls asleep, it's quite easy to untie the top straps, pull them out and around to catch the arms/body/head inside the carrier, then retie. I found it much easier than a wrap for naps -- when dd was on my back in a wrap, if she fell asleep, I found it really difficult to deal with the head bobble or arms out problem without assistance from someone.
