    Default Best sling to buy?

    With DS I initially bought a Baby Bjorn carrier which I found uncomfortable and DS hated. When he was about 8 months I bought an Ergo which I love, is comfortable and DS was happy to be carried in.

    With this bub I want to buy a sling to
    use when bub is little, graduating up
    to the Ergo when it's bigger.

    Which sling would you recommend? The Peanut shells look good. Are they comfortable?

    I am not after a sling for long term use, (because I have the Ergo) but more for when the bub is newborn and very little so would prefer to spend under $100 also.

    I have the bubba moe and I used it as soon as I could carry DD2 after my c section. It's so easy to put on and carry her in it, and she loves it. She falls asleep in it and loves being close to me. I could never get the ergo on properly, found it a bit confusing but the bubba moe is like a peanut shell sling, but you can adjust it so anyone can carry bub. It's lightweight material so perfect for summer. I used the cradle carry position and soon will be changing to a different position as soon as she has enough head control.

    I also have a bubzilla which is like a peanut shell as it's not adjustable, but it's australian made. You have to get your sizing right with this otherwise it's not comfy. The material is al ittle thicker but it's still cotton. I bought the perfect size and I love this also. I just went to woolies today and had DD2 in it for an hour and half. She had a little nap and was happy and snug as a bug.

    I bought both from Ebay brand new, paid $70 for both.
