Correct me if I'm wrong you wonderful mamas here, but I think you can do pretty much all the basic positions (I'm assuming hip-carry with your 8mos old) with a pouch as you can with a sling if you're just using it to carry the baby around. If you plan on nursing in it, some people prefer the adjustability of the sling, though I know you can also nurse in a well-fitting pouch. However, having said that, when I went on an extended vacation when DD was 17mos, I brought several carriers along "just in case" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> !

I was thinking about the t2t position. I know we will walking and shopping alot while we're there and while she's awake i prefer the hip carry but i know when she gets sleepy, thje t2t helps her focus more on the task at hand: sleeping. that said, I don't see how a pouch can be secrue for t2t. If i'm wrong, please correct me. TIA!

If the pouch fits properly, you should be able to do the T2T with a baby that old. If you need to tighten the top rail a little, try flipping the shoulder. Just bring the top edge out across the ball of your shoulder.<br><br>
As for fabrics, you can use any sturdier, thicker cotton, or even the lighter ones if you make it double/reversible. You could make a nice stretchy fleece one, but it will need to be tighter to account for the stretch.
