We have a Patapum which is ideal for days out but I can't manage to get my nearly 10 month old on back on my own, DH has to help. She is quite a clingy girl and I'm getting achey arms carrying her plus I'm getting nothing done and three year old DD1 is a bit neglected.

I like the look of a Scootababy but can't afford one. Was wondering about a ring sling but would it be secure enough for me to bend down with a bigger than average 10 month old without having to keep hold of her in the sling?

Local slingmeets are always on a day I work and I went once on mat leave and didn't feel comfortable as I don't fit in with the sling using mums at the meet.

I'll have another look at you tube and work on the back carry. Thanks for replying.
