Looking for a carrier that is a mix between a Connecta and a Moby Wrap?

Expecting DC2 next year and will be having a 2 year old as well. So I expect DC2 to spend a lot of time in a sling in the house.

With DD, DH used a Moby but I never got the hang of it. I'm just 5ft2 and to me, it felt like there was just to much material for me to be comfortable and I could never position DD right because my boobs always seemed to be in the way. Then, I got a Connecta and loved it. Still use it sometimes with DD at 15 months but, I find it too rigid to use at home. It stops me from moving around. Or possibly that's normal?

Anyway, is there a carrier that is as small and easy to use as the Connecta but comfortable to wear inside like a Moby and that's suitable from newborn?

Oh, and please don't recommend a sling meet because there are none in my area.

Hana Baby Wraps are much lighter than the Moby, and stretchier, so easier to use. They are bringing out a new shorter length soon (can't remember when....you could email them to find out if they're not already on the website) so that smaller people can use them without really long ends.

I'm have a feeling someone might suggest the Caboo, as a sort of stretchy wrap hybrid, but on the whole I don't find it works so well on smaller people, and you still have to tie long ends out of the way.

A wrap conversion mei tai like the Hoppediz Hop Tye or Neobulle Evolubulle or Girasol MySol might work for you too.

Tots bots papoozle is a combination between a Connecta and a stretchy. It would be worth checking out a local sling library for different ones to try

A Caboo Close DX? Soft and easy to put on, but has a structure so no long bits of material.

A hop tye is comfy for little baby, and wearer. Not stretchy but nice soft fabric once it's 'broken in' especially.
