I want to get a sling for my very un-crunchy friend. She has a dd who is 3, so I think a sling will come in very handy. I love my Mayawrap, but I don't know how these are with newborns. I don't think she will nurse in the sling, she only uses the football hold and always sits with her boppy, so I think I need a sling that is comfy and she will feel is very secure. Do you think a Mayawrap with a matching one for her toddler or do you have some better suggestions.
Thanks!

I agree with the PP about the MW. I found the MW difficult to use properly with a nb and I'm not a new sling user. I think a pouch is a great idea as long as you get the sizing right. Otherwise, consider an easier to use sling, like the Mamababy or such. Whatever you decide, a demo of how to use it IRL is a must. I wasn't able to use my first sling properly until someone showed me, even though I must have looked at the instructions a gazillion times.

Okay, if I go with the hotsling (which looks awesome and I may get for myself,) can I get a padded one. Can you use a padded one with a newborn? It looks like you can. Here baby isn't due until May, so should I just get a cotton one, are the fleece hot?
