I mostly use a Rose and Rebellion for my (very large) DS but find I often end up carrying him on my hip because he constantly wants up and down.
Can anyone recommend a good side carry sling - preferably one that distributes weight well across the shoulder and is easy to pop a toddler in and out of?

A toddler sized ring sling is good for up down as the large amount of fabric spreads the weight. You just adjust it once, then you can slip them down by pulling the bottom rail round.

You can do it with a Manduca. Not sure about how easy it is to get them in and out, it doesn't take me long, but I've been practising grin

I'd go for a ring sling or pouch. Pouches are sized though, so you need to make sure you get the right size for you. I prefer ring slings for their adjustability personally, but it's down to preference.

My babasling's working really well as a side sling for DD, and she's 21 months.
