i LOVE using a wraparound sling/carrier. i actually made my own, following instructions that i found on the web. google the word didymos. you need about five yards of fabric. there are wearing instructions on peppermint.com that i use. making my own, while not as beautiful, or perhaps the exact same kind of fabric as one can buy, saved a heap of money, so i was able to buy some new fabric and have alternative patterns! wearing ds in the fabric also feels so homemade, natural, and easy. he loves being close...haven't tried the back carry yet, but i'm looking forward to it.
this carrier has definitely alleviated back pain, which was quite immediate and intense for me with the one-shoulder sling.
