Wanting a fabulous sling/CCS - beginner needs help please!
Hi, Hoping there are some wrap/sling/soft structured carrier experts here!
I've been using a plain black stretchy wrap with my daughter (3 months), but I'm fancying something ... fancier! I've started looking about, trying to find a perfect fabric/design, but coming up short.
Any pointers for where to look? I'm just getting to grips with the designer wraps - seem to go in batches so if you miss a release you miss out? Or am I just being slow? So far I am quite liking some Oscha designs, and Natibaby, but not yet finding The One.
I like: fairies/elves, stars, hearts, whimsy and magic! Unicorns! Seahorses. Dragons. And something pretty. Graded colours, maybe? Pinks? Help!
Catches, that is what I am feeling - buying 'pre-loved' - aka USED and they are charging ridiculous prices - I refuse to pay MORE second-hand! Really, for the prices they start at and go for, I'd rather buy new.
I can't really afford to be buying and buying again - will a stretchy or woven wrap last me til she is out of being babyworn, or a SCS? Is a SCS suitable fro now (three months old)?
