Close baby carrier- who I see now advrtise on this site with a 10% discount for members - worth every penny imo. Ds is now 16 weeks old and 18lb, so a hefty boy, but its still as comfortable as when I bought it for him at 5 days old. Love it
You can breastfeed easily with this one too, because it's roomy and the baby can be laid sort of sideways iykwim. The only problem I have now is getting places on time, because people stop and ask about it. I think they're a bit rare where I live, but I used to live in Oxon and they are very common there!
I thought that the over one shoulder thing would be an issue, but if you get one properly in proportion (ie the smallest for you) I think it fits better. I also have bushbaby front carrier that my husband prefers, but I hate their legs flapping around banging against mine when I walk. I would advise trying a few out first. The other thing I like about the sling is that I can chuck it in my changing bag.
The web shop that I linked lets you buy them and send them back if that's a help. Also had a quick look at mothercare and they have a range of slings (better than I thought to be honest). I just looked at your profile!! I'm in Cyprus!
OMG that's mad!! I am honoured a thread about my sling, I going to have to name change now aren't I? I think I'm the only one with one here! Good for you tiny bump I had small one with her. If I see you tomorrow you can have a try of my sling!!
