    I bought the ergo and infant insert a week ago. Dd is 5 weeks old. I love it!

    I would not use the infant insert for a summer bub though, would be way too hot. But great for this time of year, we're in Melbourne.

    My Dh is a big man, tall and heavy, and I'm petite, we both have used the ergo with no problems. Really adjustable.

    I love it, hth.

    I'm going to get the sleepy wrap for when bub is a new born ( I'm expecting a big baby as ds was a big buba) and then going to try a woven wrap when bub gets to big for the sleepy wrap. If I can't get the hang of a woven wrap then I'll get the Ergo. I just want to try the wraps first

    Is the Close Carrier the same or similar material to the HAB or Sleepy Wrap? Ie nice and soft.

    We have used the sleepy wrap with DD2 since she was born (she's a month old now) and have also started using our manduca in the last 2 weeks. The sleepy wrap is so much easier to feed in than the manduca, so I'll be getting a woven wrap very soon to replace the sleepy wrap as she's getting a little heavy for it now. Like others said the sleep wrap is made of stretchy material so with DD2 being a bigger baby (she's over 5kg) it is stretching a little too much now when she's in it for longer periods of time.
    We love the manduca though, DP especially, but I am a little more fond of wraps purely because they're easier to feed in

    thanks for the replies, the close wrap looks good (for ease of putting on) but is quite pricey compared to the sleepy wrap. Arrgh so much to spend money on! I've previously bought four other carriers that I didn't like (ABA cool sling, love and care papoose, ring sling & peanut sling) so I feel like I've wasted enough money and want to be careful about my next purchase...

    My only worry about the sleepy wrap is the stretching... Hmmm

    I think I'll def get an ergo down the track, so many cheap ones on ebay but I'm guessing they are probably fakes. Maybe I can track one down at a baby market..

    I have both the sleepy wrap and an ergo.

    I used the sleepy wrap constantly with DS as a newborn. He was only 2.4 kgs though.

    Once he got to about 5kg, I started using the ergo. I roll up a terry cloth nappy and stick it under him.

    LOVE both of them.
