Hope you don't mind me butting in. I have a hip hammock, and I LOVE it!!! IMO, it's just as quick, or quicker than the sling. It's way easier than a snugli, and my baby can move her arms and legs while she's in it. It's pretty comfy, but can cut into your neck after a while (while baby is moving all around :LOL ). I always use mine at the grocery store, wal-mart, and any other place I'm just running into for a bit. It keeps my hands free. I cannot tell you how many people stop and ask me where I got it.
It is adjustable enough to fit about anyone. I don't think they have sizes, but I'm 5'2" 130lbs, and my DH is 6', 200 lbs and both of us can use this. That was one of the other reasons I got it! I know my DH will wear it, too. He couldn't quite "get" the sling
I walk my older ds into school everyday and Owen is just getting too heavy to lug around without something to help. I have a couple of slings, but they aren't that great for the hip carry--which is what I mainly want. I bought a maya wrap the other day and it hasn't arrived yet, but I'd like something I can just keep in the van and grab quick when I'm running in somewhere.
If this would for sure fit me I think I'd like it. I wear about a size 20/22. Thanks!
Is this the same hiphammock as on the site you posted? I know there are lots of variations on the design and I've heard that not all work as well as the actual hiphammock from the site. Is it still for sale?
