In my experience with ring slings, you generally need to keep a hand on/near the baby, depending on how they're positioned.
For this reason, I definitely prefer wraps (Moby or Didymos, etc.). They are truly hands free, as the baby is more upright against the center of your body, and the straps go over both shoulders. I can get a lot more done this way -- reaching things from cupboards, etc.
Hope this helps!

We never got the insert for the Ergo. I spoke to several people who said you can just fold up a cloth diaper or something similar and save the $25. DH has worn DS (who is 7 weeks today) in it several times. DS is about 13 lbs. now. We just put him in facing in and then put the hood up. Seems to have worked out okay -- well at least he hasn't fallen out yet.
