Baby carrier for mama with use of only one arm?

Does anyone have a recommendation of a baby carrier that could be used by my friend who is mostly paralyzed in one arm? I guess one that is super easy to put on first and then pop them in? I'd love to hear from anyone who has experience with this.

I would check on the baby wearing section here or even The Baby Wearer forum. They are extremely helpful.

Beco Butterfly. You put baby in, then put it on like a backpack.

I second the Beco butterfly. I have use of both arms but I have been known to put it on single handed if I am holding onto a wriggly child's arm in public.

The only issue with Beco is that they have military-style buckles, so it takes most people two hands to unbuckle them.

A pouch sling. It is very little fuss, convenient and no tightening or intricate wrapping.
