Re: Can someone tell me what I'm looking for?

I got to try on a beco at my cousins this past weekend and discovered a SSC might be right up my alley after all! But that's just what's first on my list I definitely want to try a mei tai and a decent ring sling as well before I'm done. Oh, and a water wrap, but I'm pretty sure I can handle that one lol!

How hard/easy is it to make your own mei tai?

If you are on facebook this is a good group on DIY carriers including mei tai's: https://www.facebook.com/groups/334070496681248/

I am new to babywearing too so don't really have any personal advice yet...except what I have found DOES NOT work for me . So, I'll just share the site.

Re: Can someone tell me what I'm looking for?

I would recommend a woven wrap! Its going to be the most versatile in that you can do tons of different carries in it. I wouldnt suggest a stretchy one with how old your little one already is, stretchy wraps are most comfortable when baby is under 15 lbs. Cotton and linen blends dont really have super special care instructions. Just on delicate and low heat dry or line dry. Ive got a great brand, Little Frog wraps and ring slings for pre-order on my store at http://hyenacart.com/stores/sugardumplings/. They range from $54 for a ring sling or size 4 to $97 for a sz 7 linen blend rainbow. You can also do a deposit for the pre-order so you dont have to pay all at once. We are also on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/sugardumplingsfluff
