I'm not even pregnant yet, but since I'm a teacher I thought I'd spend some time this summer looking/making stuff I'll need for a baby. I've been looking around online for sling patterns, but there seems to be a few different kinds. Does anyone have experience/preference on type of sling? There's the type that's one piece of fabric w/out a ring, one piece of fabric w/ring, and there's the Maya(?) sling.

Thanks

I got a Moby D wrap (for a *really* good price, it was used like 5 times). I have tried it out on my godson, and *love* it!

My kiddos both hated the sling.

I hope you do find a nice one that you like!

I suggest, if at all possible to see if you have a babywearing support group in your area, and borrowing a baby if at all possible.

Try different carriers, and different positions, and then go from there! You won't really know how it'll work until you try it on, with a baby in it

Good luck on your search!
I love our carriers!

Drew hated the sling that someone loaned us, so I never bothered to use one with Ally. I thought they would be great, tho.

You may want to look at My Baby Nest or The Cuddly Wrap. Both are more of a wrap than a sling. But I think they are more versatile than a standard sling. Hope this helps

Maya sling worked really very well for me, I use it occasionally now days, I think it's the best, one should go for this one when it comes to choosing.
