    I had a DIY stretchy wrap and DIY mei tai when DS was a newborn. Both worked great.

    I adored wraps for newbies!! They hold them so securely and snugly, it's just like them being all curled up in your tummy again (except higher up, the amount of times I've seen babies in carriers halfway down their parents tummies makes me cringe, so bad for your back!).

    I had a DIY wrap made out of cheesecloth (woven fabric). I loved it as it had a little bit of give to the fabric for comfort, but not enough to allow for sag, which some knit fabrics will do.

    I used an Ergo baby carrier for my little one from about a month old with an infant insert. She looked like a little frog curled up on my front and slept so well and seemed so comfy. My husband even used it willingly. My daughter is now 19 months old and I still use it on the odd occasion when we go to the beach and she needs a sleep, I take her fora walk until she nods off. (she does fight me initially though!) I recommended the Ergo to my sister and she has been using my infant insert with hers for her 5 month old who now no longer needs the insert but loves the Ergo.
    I find it comfortable to wear when it's been adjusted correctly. I chose it because it got good reviews for parent back comfort as well as baby spine and hip alignment.
    Good luck!

    If I had to just recommend one carrier for a newborn it would be an ergo with the insert because it will last you a really long time - well past 12 months. It provides optimal spinal and hip support, while being comfy for you to wear as well. Love love love the ergo.
