My sister registered for this baby carrier. I think it is cool. She wants to babywear, but she is the type of person who would think wrapping is too complicated. Now she can wear her baby in a wrap style without the work.

I made one 4 years ago that is great. I get so many complimants on it. Here's the directions. It's a "ring wrap" and what I use all the time.

That OP wrap is cool! I too am intimidated by/don't want the hassle of a wrap, but would like a carrier like that. Can you send me the product link info?

A friend of mine has a Baby Ktan, and she really loves it. Seems like it could be great for a beginner especially.

Man, now I want one of these...but I already have two carriers that I'm clumsy with and thus don't use. But this one looks easy....

I may have to do that with the Moby, but I'm going to give it another chance now that he can hold his head up more or less. My biggest problem was simple paranoia about his head position.

I wish I had gotten one of those instead of the Moby. While I like the Moby (and DS loves it!), it would be nice to have a wrap that is easier to put on and take off, specifically for nursing.
