they maya by far. I have used the no jo and the otsbh and they were just too bulky and too hard to get really snug. I think probably any unpadded sling I would like....and very easy to use in the hip carry!

I love my Maya Wrap and my Kissaluvs. I use the MW when I'm out and about because it has a pocket. I've had several people ask me about slinging and so now I keep some papers with information about the benefits of slings, the differences, and where to get them in the pocket so I can pass 'em out. (I should start making commission!! =) )
My all time fave is the Maya Wrap! I use it for my newborn exclusively. I have a New Native Baby Carrier and two other slings with lightly padded rails but I really just prefer the Maya. You can't beat the adjustability or the great fabric!
I carry my 6w old in it all the time, he loves the chest to chest hold. I like the NNBC, but I can't do the chest to chest with a newborn. The NNBC worked well as a hip carrier for my toddler. I haven't tried the Maya as a hip carrier since my 2yo likes to run everywhere she goes! ag
I LOVE my new native! Amber does not like to be cradled in arms or the sling, so I have her sit in the sling with her chest/head facing me. She naps in it the majority of the time and it fits me really well. Also, we have a Baby Bjorn and since its been really, really hot here, I like that too. I think it keeps her cooler with all of her extremities out.
WOw...another Maya wrap fan here. I got it as a gift a few years ago, the best present anyone could have gotten me I used it since birth on Donovan and now Liam, and it is still in fantastic shape and the colors are still vibrant. Not to mention much easier to use/adjust than padded rail slings. I am thinking about getting a sling with just a padded shoulder, I found those comfortable.
