and hold the baby cuddled up next you, not with legs dangling like usual slings, what are they called?

saw a few being used at NCT sale, and they looked lovely.

sling easy - that's the brand name of the one I have. It's FAB. Love it love it love it! my dd is nearly 4 months, and its really comfy - have a few different positions now that she's a bit older and isn't always asleep in it.

Wilkinets? They are fantastic. A friend lent me hers when I had ds1 and it was the most comfortable sling I have ever used.

was it these ?

Was it Didymos?

A friend has one and they are great. Her daughter is now 2 and she still carries her in it when necessary.

She is German and I suspect she bought the sling there. However, I'm sure I have seen them for sale in the UK, for around 40 pounds.

the ones i saw held the babies like the sling easy, but has more material around the whole body and shoulder of the parent.

should've asked what they were.
