Fixed my original post thanks for the help mama. Ring slings are awesome (used one with both my kids) we need all the support we can get.

I have to say I am pretty amazed at the number of Mamas I see BW here. I was pretty much the only one in the last city I lived in. Here I see them all the time! Very exciting!!! Can't wait to meet everyone at the BW event!

Really? Everytime I leave the house I get crazy looks because I'm carrying DD in a Ring Sling.

Mostly I see baby bjorns, but there are a good number of pea pods, a few mai tei's. I wear a moby and I rarely see people with them. We also use a kelty backpack (DH's fav). Lots of people comment on how cool that is.
