Check out this carrier...

"Presenting the only sling carrier that completely frees both arms"

http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...uct_id=2667879


Uhhmmmm, havn't they heard of wraps???? A wrap would be much more comfortable too!! This thing looks so uncomfy! Of course, they are probably comparing it to a Snugli

They posted about this over at TBW. It looks like a bizarre combo of a shrug sweater and a carrier. I can't see how it can be too comfy. The only thing I can see that might be good about it is that someone trying it might find TBW or some other carrier forum and start trying some good carriers!! lol

Wow - interesting... I'm surprised it's from Walmart. That's good to get your everyday Walmart shopper interested in babywearing. I don't like the carrier, though. I think it's unattractive compared to most on the market, and it doesn't look adjustable. Might only be good for newborns, maybe? I'm always happy to see babycarriers becoming more "mainstream", though!

I think its funny that they lead with ""Presenting the only sling carrier that completely frees both arms""

and in the pic she's using BOTH arms to support the baby.
