Wondering if any of you all have tried an adjustable mother's milk sling, and how they are....I'd rather just get one sling to fit both DH and I, versus buying two. ANy info? THanks!

You might want to post this in Baby wearing...but...I bought one and I didn't really like it. I saw a mom in a mall one day and asked her where she got it because it LOOKED comfortable, but for my dd and I it wasn't comfortable at all. Adjusting it, is a pain in the butt too....but maybe it's just me.<br><br>
If you are wanting to have a sling that both you and dh could wear may I suggest a ring sling (although your dh might not like the ring but if he is willing to wear a sling than I don't think it should be a problem). I didn't find the learning curve with it hard at all. I found it really easy. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">....if it is a pouch sling you are looking for I have a Hotsling and I LOVED it.<br><br>
HTH. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I second the ringed slings. I have a kangaroo korner sling with a ring adjustment and it works really well for both dh and me. It's SUPER adjustable as any ring would be (I'm 5'3 and quite small, he's 6') and you have the option of padding across the shoulder.

I guess I've never heard good things about the ring slings before now, or maybe I just made that up!? The ring is comfortable? anyoone else tried a mother's milk sling?<br>
Thank you all!

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/notes2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="notes right-handed">: I have the same question. My Dh doesn't like ring slings so that is not an option for us but I have been looking at the MMAP for a while and I would like to hear from others who have used them.

I am guessing that you are talking about a Mamma's Milk sling? I have one, and I LOVE it. Dd just grew out of the cradle hold, but she loves the heart to heart or hip hold in it. She just turned 7 months. I did have to buy two sizes since dh is really a much bigger size than I am. It is a bit of a pain to adjust, but I don't adjust it every time. I just put it on, slide her in, and away we go. DH still hasn't used his. Oh well! If dh and I were closer to the same size, then we could have easily used just one.
