I went to Wal Mart and bought 4.5 metres of stretchy red material for a SPOC. Cost a whole $4 and it works awesome! I also have a cotton sling I sometimes use and a mei tai type carrier coming from e-bay.

we just use pouches, the mei tai is not working well at this point, and I sold my moby and didn't replace it i really need to, I could use a good wrap!

I'm using a sling-rider from walmart, a maya wrap and trying to get the hang of my ring sling

I'm using a bit o everything right now. Elliot seems pretty easy going and doesn't really care what BW device I'm using. Right now I'm wearing my R Girsol the most, though I did use my SSC today for the first time. I use my pouches when I do quick trips into the store.

Reyes has started to feel the sling love. I've gotten him to sleep twice in it. I just play some music and he's out in 5 minutes-which for him is amazing. Normally it can take up to 2 hours to get this guy to sleep!

For those of you who are wearing your little ones in a MT back carry, what is your favorite way to get your baby in there?

I'm using my trusty ol' ring sling for quick and easy in and out stuff, and I've used the UBW that my SIL gave me a few times (it's like a cheap, poor-quality moby with annoying rings on one end--which I removed). It works fine, for now, but I can see that she'll soon outgrow it weight-wise. I can't figure out how to nurse in a wrap, and I can't get her on my back without dh helping me (though once we get her there, she loves it, and it's quite comfy for me, too!), so I'm not feeling the wrap love right now. Hoping I can get or make a nice wrap to use when she's bigger though. I know I'll like it then, and I will also be needing the two-shoulder carrier even more then.

As soon as I am able to get to my machine, i'm going to make a stretchy pouch. I found a yard of nice, heavier weight knit in the bargain bin seceral months ago. I was gonna use it to convert some regular jeans into mternity jens, but never got around to it. there's just enough that i could make 2 pouches to wear criss crossed for even weight distribution. I'm excited about trying it--need to get to it! Maybe this weekend....

I also have used my version of a mai tei carrier. I can get her on my back just fine in it, but it doesn't have enough head support for her to sleep in it, so I mostly use it for front carries. I need to make a new one, with head support. Ha! Like that'll be happening any time soon! The stretchy pouches are a one-seam project, and I'll be lucky if I can get them made!
