Hi, I'm in 2 minds if to get a baby wrap/sling or not... I didn't have one for my little boy, but this time round I think they might be helpful....
My worry is I don't want a complicated one?
The caboo ones from photos look easy enough, is this the case? And can anyone recommend a easy to wear/fit one
Thanks

The close caboo is easy as it's pre-tied so you just pull it on. Connecta is also a really easy one.

Do you have a sling library near you? Just google sling library and your local area and it will tell you. If you go there they will have lots of slings you can try out and look at to see which one is best for you.

I have the close caboo. It's easy enough to use. My DD and DS2 love it. (2 and a half and 10 months, the ten month old is the heavier onegrin) but a sling library would be a good idea then you can find what works for you and what you feel comfortable wearing etc.

I've got a couple of Moby wraps for DS2 but am actually preferring the Ergo this time around (with newborn insert). Slings are essential with a toddler plus baby!

DS2 is 9 weeks now and I'd bought a stretchy wrap to use with him, after having a ring sling for the early days with DS1.

The stretchy wrap is very comfortable (even though DS2 is big!) but it is a bit of a faff to put on in a hurry. So I did give in and get the infant insert for my ergo.

And like last time (DS1), once the ergo came out, I've hardly used the pram either.

I used the ergo with DS1 till he was 4yo and plan to do the same this time around.

Similar buckle carriers might suit you better though: have a look at Beco, Boba, Tula, Connecta, Manduca etc. ( and I really recommend against the Ergo 360)

That's great thanks, I've gone and brought and Caboo and seems easy enough to use
