My dd came home from the hospital at 5 lbs 9 oz, and we started using a Kangaroo Korner Fleece Pouch shortly after that. I liked that the stretchy fleece held her snug against me and it was very easy to use. When she was tiny, we mostly did chest to chest position. Of course, she was a winter baby so the fleece was great, don't know where your friend lives. As she got bigger, I found I liked our Maya Wrap as well or better.

We didn't sling from day 1 because she was in the NICU 3 hours from home and I didn't have one with me but we "kangaroo'd" all the time skin to skin, me holding her with a blanket over us both. The benefits of "kangaroo care" are well-documented in the medical literature and don't stop once you leave the hospital! Using a sling is one of the best things your friend can do for her baby!
