I will use my mayawrap, probably. I sewed a bunch of new slings using their pattern and I have some really nice tan fabric. The ,ayawarap is their denim fabric, and I just got sick if it. I only stopped carrying dd in it recently since my belly has gotten too big (anyone gotten around this issue?)
I miss being able to sling her. . . i can;t relate to needing several in several places, house, car diaper bag. I pretty much chose one sling that coordinated with what I was wearing and wore that sling that day, under my overshirt or jacket or whatever, ESPECIALLY when she was small. I recently had a booth a a local babay stuff sale to demonstrate slings and i just kept talking about travelling with baby, buying a big overcoat and popping baby into it while leaving the so-called infant "carrier" (big plastic car seat part) in the car where it belongs. i.e. no baby in the bucket next to me on the floor of a restaurant!!!
Previous poster asked why slings over pouches, citing "hurting your back" concerns. It only hurts your back to be carrying your big kid while wearing crappy/stupid shoes; this was my experience. That's the other thing i was asking people (at that sale) to notice as soon as they put the baby in the sling the first time they try it: no part of your muscles is supporting baby.
All baby's weight is on your bony frame. In other words, I only had back pain if i carried her for a while wearing bad shoes. . .which would have happened anyway of i'd have been carrying her in my arms wearing the same shoes (ok ok they were flip flops).
I liked the pocket!!! Do the pouches have pockets? If not forget it for me--I love being able to tramp around and travel so light when othe rmoms are lugging huge diaper bags. Keys, lip gloss and cash/debit card and I'm good for a few hours.
My pocket also finally had some little cards I made that said "It's called a baby sling" to answer the endless people who'd comment on it in public.
I put some info about slings' usefulnes plus the maywrap website, since they have pouch and ring sling patterns free on them with easy to sew directions.
I will most likely make a pouch at some point too. I got some nice green raw silk but i don't want to run it through rings. . .
