I only have a Mamma's Milk sling (the non-adjustable one and it was a little small on me for my bub when I weighed only 105!!!) and an Infantino sling. I am not terribly happy with either of them and am looking for a new one both for Petri now and for my LO in October. I was really drawn to the Ellaroo Mei Tai (and Mei Tai's in general) and the Maya Wraps. I guess the fact that those styles have both been used for SOOOO many years in Asia/Latin America that I am drawn to those. What are your favorite styles/brands? Thanks! And Im also looking for ones that cost less than 80 - 100+. DH and I absolutely cannot afford that! We are looking more in the 20 - 40 dollar range.

WAHM ring slings can fit your budget, and they're my favourite. If you can sew at all, you can make one, too. They're super simple and you can make them very inexpensively. You can also make a wrap, just get 5-6 yards of fabric. a stretchy knit is good for the newborn stage, but you want a woven (no stretchy) fabric for older kids. Some people say you shouldn't make your own wraps and that they're not the same as the $100 wraps, but honestly I can't tell the difference.

Oh, I am so excited to see this thread! I was going to start one eventually to see what everybody has or is going to get! I have a Kangaroo Korner Adjustable Fleece Pouch, a Babyhawk Mei Tai and a Didymos wrap. I am hoping we have a boy so I can buy another wrap (mine is purple). I am totally into the wraps. For your new babe, I would totally recommend a stretchy wrap like a Moby (only $40, or less on the TP or thebabywearer.com). Totally check out thebabywearer.com, they have more used carriers than on the mothering TP. (Just a hint to save some money). I liked using a stretchy wrap for my newborn over the mei tai and loved my pouch for when I started putting her on my hip. But once she got bigger, the Didymos got the prize, love, love, love it!! I am wondering if I should give a RS a try? Any other opinions out there?

I got a used Celtic Freehand when DS was 2. I love it, and the mama on the babywearing swap yahoo group that sold it to me was kind enough to let it go for what I could afford ($45 I think it was). I last used it a couple of months ago, DS is now almost 5. I'm sure I could still carry him using it!

I'm also excited to see this thread! I'm a first time mommy and I love the idea of slings and plan to use them. But, I know nothing about which ones are good and which ones aren't! Taking notes!

I didnt realize that newborns needed a stretchy wrap, will look into the Moby wraps! And am going to the site right after I post! thanks And I saw an awesome Baby Hawk used Met Tai on eBay (claimed it was only used 5 times) for ATM $29. Hopefully it doesnt go up too much lol! Cuz I looked on the site and those were 90+...

I use a fleece pouch for newborns, a ring sling for infants and an ergo for toddlers. I was just about to order a new ring sling. I have the other 2 already.

I've used:

Baby Bjorn: Not so crazy about it, but DH likes it.
Moby Wrap: Good for newborns. I found it stretched out easily and I was constantly having to adjust it and tighten it. Plus I felt swaddled in fabric and it was a pain to get in and out of.
Hotsling: Loved it, but was never able to figure out a hip carry with it (yes I tried flipping the shoulder). I love that it's got good "popability" and it folds down small for a diaper bag.
Ellaroo Ring Sling: My favorite, hands down. Very versatile and adjustable.
Homemade Mei Tai: A friend of mine makes Joey Pockets and she shared her pattern with me I really liked it, but I didn't try it until my daughter was about a year old and she balked at it. I'm interested to try one with a newborn next time.

Well I have decided that I am going to invest in 3 new ones (1) a stretchy wrap for newborn... Mobywrap I guess but will look for more (2) a ring sling, again not set in stone on brand (3) a mei tai!

And thanks for recommending thebabywearer.com It was awesome and so helpful!

There is a brown new moby on the TP right now for 30 I think. I just bought a zolowear sling. I had one way back when and hated it but my best friend got one of the newer designs and she says they've changed the shoulder and it's more comfy now. I've been eyeballing it for about a year and it was on clearance today!!!!

I will get a wrap and make a ring sling for this baby while s/he's small, and when s/he's big enough I'll use my babyhawk. I have a peanut shell pouch sling that is okay, but it's not my favorite. I've used a hotsling, and as far as pouches go, I like it much better.

That's a great price for the BH! I paid $95 for mine!! You can easily make one, too, if you're handy with a sewing machine.. I didn't realize just how simple they are until I got mine, then kicked myself for it, lol.

I love my Maya wrap and I'm sure I'll use it with this babe. I also have an Over the Shoulder Baby Holder which I often find better for housework since it lacks the long tail. But I use the Maya on walks and out and about.

I have an Ella Roo Podeagi which I *love*

And I haev an Ella Roo wrap which I used some with my youngest after he got to toddler years, but it was given to me and I feel it's too big. I will probably try and sell it and buy ones size smaller

Eventually I'd like to add a mei tai to the collection. May wait for toddler for that, or an Ergo.

I tried an ergo a few times, but it's uncomfortable to me, the straps where it adjusts behind the arms, I just couldn't get used to. Love my BH, though.

I'm excited to get a new babyhawk for this little one, and maybe a hotsling. I also want to get something for DH, since he thinks the fabrics of the other carriers are too "girly." Does anyone know how ergos compare to baby bjorns? We had an infantino back/front pack and hated it, so I'm willing to shell out a little more money if it means DH will participate.

Ergos are so much better then baby bjorns, even though I don't like 'em It's softer imo then a bjorn, and just like a MT except you have buckles instead of long straps. And they're very manly You can get non-girly BH, just solid colors and such.

I love it because last night I was looking at different BH carriers and asked DH to come and see what he liked and he, very seriously, was like I really dont care what it looks like. I will use it if it is pink and purple with ruffles, just buy one that isnt as high as a mortgage payment (he can be a lil dramatic lol)

The Ergo is way different than the Baby Bjorn or the Infantino or Snuggli or any of those sort of front packs -- and it is way better. The Ergo distributes the baby's weight over your shoulders and hips. In the Bjorn (even the one with the lumbar support, which we have) the baby's weight is hanging on your shoulders and neck. The same child feels much lighter in the Ergo than in the Bjorn. The Ergo puts the baby in a place on your body where you would naturally hold your baby with your arms, if you weren’t using a carrier. Also the Ergo puts the baby into more of a sitting position, whereas in the Bjorn the baby is totally vertical and putting a lot of pressure on the groin and the bottom of the spine. Some people believe the Baby Bjorn is not good for Baby's spine. The Ergo will also fit your child for much, much longer than the Baby Bjorn. (I recently saw a man carrying a child who looked to be 4 or 5 in an Ergo.)

I love, love, LOVE my Ergo. And my DH does too. And 17-month old DS loves to ride in it in either a front or back carry. When I'm trying to do housework and he is clingy, I say "Do you want to ride on mama's back?" and he says "Back-back" and goes running to get the Ergo and bring it to me.

I plan to get the Ergo infant insert to try with my new little one. I also have a Maya wrap ring sling which I really liked using with DS when he was less than a year old, and I plan to use that for my new little one too. Now I like the Ergo the best for DS. I have some neck/shoulder issues and using a ring sling with a 20 lb child put too much pressure on one shoulder. With the Ergo I can get DS's weight onto my hips and I don't have neck or shoulder pain.

With all this awesome talk about Ergo I think I might have to "sneak in" all these different fabulous carriers with a month or so in between each purchase so DH doesnt realize it lol. I dont think I will go for a moby and use my Mamma's Milk for newborn stage (its a pouch sling) then get the Mei Tai (hopefully the really cute Baby Hawk one) and a SweetPea RingSling and an Ergo... Then I will just give the Infantino to Goodwill or something because DS liked it when he was younger but now he just squirms until I take him out of it. Probably not the best, most comfortable position... Oh lord, I think (including the one I bought new... probably the only "new" one I will buy) I will be spending about $200 - $250 on these for carriers... That is a lot to me.

Ring Slings are my fav. I've tried (had) just about every type of sling out there...ring, pouch, wrap....but ring slings are my preference!

I have a hotsling and an ergo. I didn't buy the hotsling until dd was older and I just used it to carry her on my hip. I'm excited to try it with a newborn. I will probably look around at other carriers too though. The ergo is great for an older baby. I just stopped wearing dd on my back when we go places like the thrift store where it is just too much work for me to have her run free. She would totally still fit in it, I'm just feeling too tired to carry her.

Wow, thanks! This is a ton of help! I was leaning toward the Ergo anyway, and now I'm sold. Thank you!

That's adorable, and too funny! I can just picture my "manly," construction-worker dh in something pink with ruffles! Hmmm I wonder how I could trick him into it...

I don't think the ergo is manly looking but I have butterflies and stuff on the inside of mine.

FWIW- I am still wearing my 3.5 year old often in mine.
