Re: What type of baby-wearing sling/holder do you use?

I loved my homemade Moby until 8 pounds or so. Then we used our ring sling and Beco more often.

I have an Ergo Organic and love it, I will probably buy a Sakura Bloom Sling when I have a newborn again.

Re: What type of baby-wearing sling/holder do you use?

I have a Sleepy Wrap and carried my daughter in it a lot when she was just over 4 pounds. My son was still in the NICU and I would wear her in it throughout the day as I was back in the NICU to be with him. Later I wore both of them in it when they were still small enough. I Use a Maya wrap sling more now that they are Toddlers, but they still both fit (one at a time) in the Sleepy Wrap. I had no idea how to tie it when I got it, but their website is awesome at teaching you how.

We had a lot of tubes to deal with even after we came home, so we used a mei tai. Faster in and out than a wrap, and ours was set up to be a good length for an infant who was a bit more floppy than he should have been.

In any case, babywearing was definitely the way to go to keep people back a bit - they have to enter *your* personal space to touch the baby, and that makes people think first.

Re: What type of baby-wearing sling/holder do you use?

I I used a Moby when we came home too. (3 lbs 8 oz)
I wanted to continue Kangaroo Care at home. DH wore him too!! I have many more carriers...MT's, Didymos slings, Storch, and a Robozo. LOVE them all, but liked the stretch of the Moby best. And the cheapest one as well

Don't get discouraged, it takes practice! YouTube has GREAT tutorials.

The only one I felt comfortable with her in was the Sleepy Wrap or Moby. The others just seemed to fold her up to much, and I was concerned about breathing issues, so the wrap it was!

Re: What type of baby-wearing sling/holder do you use?

I had a Moby when she was tiny, but I only used it less than 5 times. We've really just used a pouch sling, that's my favorite. This is my second baby I've wore in it. I'm looking into getting an Ergo/Beco in a few months, though.

Re: What type of baby-wearing sling/holder do you use?

I could not have survived the first colic-filled months without my Hugamonkey sling. It's a pouch sling so there's nothing to adjust: you just throw it on, gently position baby inside, and go. Because preemies are so tiny, I initially had to pin some of the fabric down to keep DD from being sealed in an envelope. As she grew, the need for the pin disappeared, and the sling got more and more helpful after she filled it out better. There did come a point, however, when she reached 18 or 20 lbs and the Hugamonkey stopped being so comfortable for me to wear; it seemed like a ring sling distributed her weight better across my back. But before that, it was great!
