Re: If I gave you $50, which carrier would you buy for me?

I think I'm going to go to my natural parenting store (when I scrape up my carrier $) and look at the different styles. Would they let me try some on? I'd hate to buy a wrap and find out I really like mei tais instead, or vice versa...

The store near me gives free consultation has samples to try on and gives you lessons on hiw to do it. They even do a rental so you.can try it for a couple days.Yours might be different but hey call them!

Re: If I gave you $50, which carrier would you buy for me?

They have a couple on display at all times so I'm hoping that they will. I'm taking a bunch of out grown newborn and fluff I don't like/use up there to see if I can get store credit. If I can (I'm pretty sure I can they have a great used selection) I'm putting it all towards a carrier... and maaaaybe a fb os elite, lol.

I'm sure your local store will at least let you try them on, they probably encourage it. I would also suggest a mei tai (one of my favorite carrier types) or a gypsymama stretch wrap (I've never tried one, but I've read great things about them).

And I have to add, it sounds like if your son actually fell out of the carrier then you need some help with using it. Is there a babywearing meeting nearby that you can go to? When using a ring sling correctly the baby is very secure. Maybe you aren't getting it tight enough?

A mei tai for sure! You can find Kozy carriers and babyhawks for $50 or less on the FSOT boards here and at TBW.

I wouldn't rec a stretchy wrap bc even though your LO will be small for a long time, you can't use them for back carries and if you only have one carrier, it should take you from birth-toddlerhood, in my opinion!
I would go with a mei tai or an SSC like beco 4g. ...or if you want a wrap and can find a great price, I would go for a shortie or mid length woven!

A babyhawk for sure. You may need XL straps. I'm a 16 and I need them for some of the more supportive front carries.
