Best Housework Sling/Carrier

I have a 10 week old baby and am EBF. I find it near impossible to get anything done around the house because my baby does not like to be put down. I’m told that slings or baby carriers are useful in this situation. Do you have any recommendations and experiences to share?

Something with the option of headsupport or hood for when baby is sleeping and a bit floppy.

Do you have a sling library near you. You can also hire slings from Slumber Roo. It's worth trying a few out before you commit.

Stretchy wrap is the bee's knees for little ones that age IME.

The baby will be on your front so it is difficult to do some things because they are in the way, but you do have two hands free.

Actually the total best thing is a mei tai or woven wrap and a back carry, but I wouldn't recommend this to a beginner. I could never get the hang of it. The only people I know who did were on DC2, had back carried their older child a lot and had RL help to get the baby up there while they were learning.
