I can sort of get it, when I'm with an experienced user ... but then get me home, and no amount of reading/video/playing with the wrap/pouch/sling helps me.

PLEASE tell me I'm not the only one!
hey! I'm not so good at the sling/wrap stuff either. I got a BabyHawk, though, and it's sooooo simple!! I love it! I'm thinking about getting an Ergo you know anyone with either of these so you can try it out?

Been using the homemade wrap a lot and the babyhawk and sometimes the borrowed ring sling. Can't decide if I like it enough to buy my own.

BabyHawk mei tai all the way. She's nice and snug, I can nurse her pretty easily when she's on my front (I've been the queen of NIP'ing lately... while signing loan papers at the bank, at Costco, while walking down the street, at the park, in the backyard, pretty much wherever we are). She went cherry picking on Friday on my front, and went huckleberry picking on my back (hubby had to help me get her there safely) last week. She loves it, I'm comfy, etc.

I also got my new one with pockets and all that jazz, so I can just slide my wallet and keys in there so I can leave the diaper bag in the car and have two free hands for each of my little hoodlums to keep them from running into traffic.

ETA: Photos of our recent excursions with her in the BH are on my blog for the curious...

I started using my Bali Baby Stretch but its often too hot for it. After a few weeks, I realized I could use my Mai Tei so I've been using that a lot. It is much quicker to get on and lets more air in so its not so hot.
