I have a 6 week old DD who likes to be carried a lot. I want to get a sling/carrier for her but don't know which one is the best in most peoples opinions - after all reviews differ so much.

What do you recommend?

Preferably one that is easy to put on, as don't want to have to get another adult to help me!

I am massively into wrapping it's a bit fiddly at first but once you get the hang of it some carries are really quick to achieve. It's rather addictive too! With a small baby start with a stretchy wrap (£25 on amazon?) then when baby is older move onto woven wraps. There are loads of great tutorials on YouTube which really help.

I love the boba 4g! At that age you can put it on and then slip them in from the top (then tighten the straps). There is a buckle to do up behind your neck but I've never had a problem with it and there is a way to do it before putting the baby in - lots of vids on YouTube.

Can you get to a sling library? It's such an individual thing spending on your build etc. and could save you money in a try before you buy way as slings can be expensive!
Mine went in a caboo wrap when little and now in an ergo 360 which lasts aaaaages and has multiple ways to carry depending on size/activity. I found them both easy to use once I'd practiced a few times. X
