I'm curious where a good place is to shop for baby carriers. I'm pregnant with number 4 and know that I want a moby wrap(or something similar) for sure but would like to look at other carriers in person too. I've tried searching for shops online and the only place I came up with was bella stella which I will check out. Is there anywhere else to look also? I live 30 miles west of PDX but my mws are in NE Portland so I'm out that way often. Thanks!

mother natures on SE Clinton has a bunch set out that you can try. Milagros in NE is also very helpful with demo carriers available. call ahead and you can find out exactly which ones they have on hand i bet.

I would have suggested Bella Stella. They have carriers you can try on, and they're such friendly ladies!

I'm pretty sure Milagros, Bella Stella and Mother Natures all have Chinook Book coupons too.
