Looking for some advice as per usual. I have a 10mo who is 20lb ISH and looking for a decent sling I can use on my front and back. Was wondering about a Mai Tei?

I have previously used a Moby but have lent this out now as I was finding it a bit hot and heavy so looking for something with less material. I have also tried a babasling when DS was newborn but never got on with it due to my body shape I think (big boobs and not exactly a sixe 8!!).

There is a sling meet locally but unfortunately they meet on a day I work so I can't go and try a few. Does anyone know of an online hire/try service? Or any other ideas? I am North Lancs/South Cumbria. Thanks.

I had a babasling too it was rubbish!
I've been loaning a babyhawk mei tai from a sling library for my 14 week old and we love it. I've just ordered a pouchlings mei tai it shoul be here any day now. I'm a touch on the larger side too ad the pouchlings have slightly longer straps than some other brands.

Slumber-roo do an online hire service. More expensive than a sling library but I didn't have one locally so it worked for me. 14 days for 13.99, 10%off an order if you buy one subsequently.

I have a Beco Butterfly - love it, really easy to get the baby on you back as you can put him in it first.
