    <p>Hi Mamas,</p> <p> </p> <p>I am planning a beach trip with my 23-24 pound young toddler, who adores any and all water. She hasn't yet been to the ocean, and I was thinking that wearing her in would be a good introduction. I currently have a Hotslings pouch, which we love for hip carries, and...

    <p>I am SO overwhelmed by all the different types of carriers. We are down to the following:</p> <p>-Baby K'tan</p> <p>-Cuddly Wrap</p> <p>-Blue Celery</p> <p>-Hot Slings</p> <p>Any opinions on what is best?!</p>

    <p>I ask because my DH <em>refuses </em>to. I have tried countless times to sell him on the perks and benefits (you hold our baby AND have the use of both hands!!) but nope. He won't even try. Just wondering if this is your experience too.</p>

    I'm in search of the easiest and most discreet clothing to wear for nursing in public while wearing my 6 week old baby. At the moment, I use either a ring sling or a wrap. I can do a cradle carry with the wrap but am most comfortable with front cross pouch carry (not sure if that's the correct...

    <p>I have a 3 week old and would love to use my ring sling more, but so far we have only been successful if he is asleep when I put him in. If he is awake, he just keeps rooting around my chest like he wants to nurse, then gets frustrated and starts screaming. This is even after a marathon...

    <p>I'm having a bit of trouble getting a comfortable fit with my babe in a ring sling. I have large breasts (which have gotten bigger now that they're full of milk) and the part of the sling that goes up to the rings is fitting funny around them. </p> <p> </p> <p>Any tips or suggestions for...

    <p>Please give advice or product advice on babywearing a newborn for those of us in ridiculously hot climates . I'm in central Texas where we have a record busting over 70 days of 100 plus degree weather.  I have a 22 month old when his brother will be here, and no family support for taking...

    My 9yo daughter is forever carrying around her 17mo baby brother, even though I remind her she doesn't have to. She's requested her own carrier so she can occasionally wear him on her back (with me monitoring and limiting it so she doesn't overextend her growing body or fall and injure them...

    <p>Hi all -- Not sure what kind of answer I'm looking for here....</p> <p> </p> <p>I have a Moby and one of those Seven slings... and a Maya Ring Sling - I find them all hard to use on my 5 week old kiddo.</p> <p> </p> <p>I live in Guatemala where babywearing is super common and my MIL is here...

    What is your favorite ring sling? I have one that a WAHM near me made. It's a light weight cotton and I've used it constantly since DS#1 was born and he's almost 2. Now that I have another new baby, I've started looking into different carries (DS1 is just hip hold) and found that this sling...

    <p>I really like the idea of wraps because of how weight is supported evenly over the shoulders and back. I've got a Moby, and my baby sleeps very comfortably in it, even though she cries every time I load and unload her. I also find it too hot, even in a thin cotton onesie, baby heats up. I...

    <p>Does anyone have any experience making a baba sling? I want to get a sling for a close friend who is due in a few months, but felt to add a personal touch to it and make it myself! Any one have any links to patterns or instructions?</p> <p> </p> <p>Many thanks..</p> <p>Danie x</p>

    <p>I just had my baby Friday. She is 6 days old today. My friend is sending me a moby wrap. How old does she need to be to safely be carried? I had a ring sling with my other babies. Is it easy so breastfeed in a moby?</p> <p>Also any other carrier you like better for a newborn?</p>
  14. Babywearing
    <p>I have just bought a ergo baby carrier second hand and it came with the insert, which I was excited about since my baby is just 6 weeks. But then discovered it is the old insert, designed to hold baby sort of cradled sideways, not tummy to tummy. I know my dd likes tummy to tummy best, and I...

    <p>has anyone seen a ring wrap like the diy instructions on jan andrea's site? has anyone made and used one yourself? i'm thinking about making one, but would love to find someone who has actually used one and liked it before i go to the trouble.</p>

    <p>Just a vent really.</p> <p> </p> <p>I saw some really reasonable ergo's on eBay and figured i'd buy one for DD2's first birthday (we have a stretchy wrap, a ring-wrap, a mei-tai and a ringsling all homemade but DP isn't keen on any of them as he worries he's going to "do it wrong" and drop...

    <p>I just purchased a second-hand Moby & was very excited to put it to use asap until I downloaded the instructions.  They state the wrap is to be used for babies 8-35 lbs but my little girl is only 6lbs 2oz as of today.  She was also born 4 weeks early but we're only 2 days away from her EDD...

    <p>Okay - AP is new to me within the last year (beginning of pregnancy with DD). I wore DS (33 mo) a bit as a baby but more out of practicality than having any clue about the benefits of babywearing. I had a Snugli (I know everybody hates these!) for him, and I kept it for DD. I realized...

    <p>When my youngest DD was a baby, I LOVED my wrap.  I have always loveloveloved my ring slings.  I gave a mei tai a try and my daughter always HATED it.  </p> <p>She is not a baby anymore, but still thinks she is.  She just turned 3 and is 38 lbs or so and wants to be carried all the time.  I...

    <p>Just wondering if anyone has carried two children and lived to tell about it! I have a three year old and three month old and we like to get out for walks...not many side walks in this neighborhood though so the stroller isn't much fun. I have an ergo for the three year old and either a ring...
