Best wrap for a teeny baby?

My baby was born 12 weeks early so very small. I wondered if anyone knew what sort of sling or wrap would be best for a very small baby? She's now just over 2 months and not quite weighing 5lbs. I think I prefer the stretchy wrap ones but it always seems to me that there is just so much fabric!

I had a close caboo (not the NCT version as fabric isn't as nice) and used it on a 7lb baby from birth. It's soft and stretchy but you don't have to tie it yourself. Very comfy for parent and baby.

Don't worry about the loads of fabric, you can tie it around your waist an extra time if it bothers you. I loved the boba wrap. I had tiny babies, close to 5lb at full term and they were all really snuggly and happy in mine.
Tbf though I think one stretchy wrap is very similar to another.
Congratulations!
