Hey! I just got a little extra $$ for my birthday & I'm wanting to buy a new sling. I have a pouch style sling-2 layers of solarviel for summer & I want a dresser one. I haven't tried an ABC/kozy style & kozy's list is too long. I want to buy something soon & I don't know any nice kozy type sites. I really like the stretch hotsling w/padded leg rail though & they are affordable.<br><br>
Any help? Which do you prefer & what are some good sites?<br>
TIA! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

I don't think you can go wrong with either the Hotsling or a Kozy type carrier. I love my Hotsling for shorter carries and love the ease and simplicity of the pouch. Kristen of Hotslings is great about helping you get the perfect size as it's a must with a non adjustable pouch. She is also planning to add silk brocade pouches to her site.<br><br>
For long walks or long shopping trips, a 2 shoulder carrier like an ABC is much more comfortable for me. If you can't wait for a Kozy, take a look at sachicarriers.com. Lisa is wonderful and she has some beautiful silk brocades to choose from as you said you wanted something dressier.<br><br>
If you really want a Kozy, check out this silk Kozy on Ebay. It is gorgeous!<br><a href="http://tinyurl.com/3jauw" target="_blank">http://tinyurl.com/3jauw</a><br><br>
Other abc websites are:<br><br>

I would go for the ABC -- they are more comfortable for longer wearings. <a href="http://www.babyfairies.com" target="_blank">www.babyfairies.com</a> has some nice ones.

Since you can't wait for a Kozy (sorry <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent"> ) I recommend Freehand <a href="http://www.freewebs.com/freehand/" target="_blank">http://www.freewebs.com/freehand/</a> She use to have a wait but has recently gotten caught up. She has some one ebay right now. Her work is amazing!<br>
I also recommend the piggie pack from mothers helper <a href="http://www.mothers-helper.ca" target="_blank">www.mothers-helper.ca</a> Diane is a doll to work with and she does custom stuff too.<br><br>

The Kozy is a great ABC, but if you don't want to wait then I highly recommend a <a href="http://www.sachicarriers.com/" target="_blank">Sachi Carrier</a>. They are very well made, she has a great selection of prints, and there's no wait. Lisa is a dream to work with, she'll customize strap length and/or body size to whatever you want. I got a navy blue toile print with dark denim straps from her and its soooooo beautiful and SUPER comfy too! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br>
I really like the denim straps because they are softer than canvas but have enough texture to still grab and hold when being tied. I love the feel of twill straps but they always slip when I'm trying to tie them. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
I'm trying to work up the courage to get a brocade one, because they are so pretty, but I'm wondering if its too dressy for me to use daily. :LOL

WOW! That's a tough choice! I just made myself a pouch but if I were you, I'd get a kozy type cuz you already have one pouch. If you don't like the ABC you can always sell it or trade it later.
