My sister made me a Maya sling from their pattern online. I tried to use it when my DS was a NB but was only successful once for a short time. Otherwise, every other time I tried ended in his screaming and my falling into tears feeling bewildered by something so many other mothers profess to love. Finally, on my last attempt, I actually broke a ring while trying to adjust it. Luckily, I had my hand under him for support and he didn't fall. My DS is 8 wks old now and I'm still interested but stumped as to how to proceed. I think my sis can fix the sling, any suggestions on how to make this work?
