I personally think that ring slings are hard to get down with a newborn, but maybe it's just me. I strongly prefer a moby-style wrap for the newborn stage - they're just tucked so snug in there, it just HAS to feel womb-like to them. With Ringslings, I have a hard time adjusting the sling to feel secure and keep the baby in the right position when they're so tiny. Plus, it seems like my babies really like to be upright rather than cradled - I know you can do that with a RS, too, but I just can't seem to make it work.
I have 2 ring slings - one is a Maya that I got free for shipping here on the TP, and the other one is a no-name brand with a REALLY long tail. They're both fine - I like them better when they get bigger and have more head control - great for maybe 4-5 months plus, IMHO. I know others really dig them from the beginning though...

Okay, so- a regular original Moby wrap is good for a newborn then?
And would be used with the baby upright as opposed to lying down?
If I got that would I be able to put the baby in it in the very beginning?
