Hello - really looking for some advice - After trying various things we have been using a close carrier and then as they got a bit bigger we used out connecta more and more - now I am looking for something quicker to carry my 1 year old (just walking) to the car - is only 1 min walk, but has steps and a hill - so wondering if there is something i can stick him in quick and then get him out quick - the close was fab for this but he is a bit heavy now! Also for the pre-school run, about a 4 min walk! Willing to consider most things, but needs to be quick and easy to carry him when have other bags, also have a 3 year old who needs a hand! thanks so much
Yeh I was thinking of something like a ring sling I think - Something just to pop him in, just i need to be able to lay him on the connecta on the sofa to be able to get it on my back and he is too big (and hates) going ont he front!
Anything to look out for with a ring sling? are they eay to use? different sizes etc?
I got a ring sling off ebay - think the seller was uk slings. I mostly use it just for popping to the shops and taking ds to nursery, but also took it on holiday recently so used it for longer periods.
I tend to have him on my hip but you can use it for a back carry too by scooting it round.
