    Okay, hope these attached properly. This should be the order:- DD in a hug a bub at about 9 weeks- DD in a woven wrap at about 7 months- DD in an Ergo at 4 months - DD in a woven wrap at 14 months

    Default Can I see you baby-wearing?

    Ok, this isn't the best photo to demonstrate baby wearing, but it demonstrates the reason I loved using a sling...

    This is DD asleep when we were out one day....so adorable <3

    I started with an ergo, then bought a ring sling which is awesome for quick pick ups!

    Then bought a woven for back carries, because I wanted to

    I like rainbows..

I could wear DD until she was about 2 and 14kgs-ish in the hold pictured (cradle hold when younger, frog hold when a bit bigger - she loved being squished and folded in half!). Also look for aluminium/alloy rings to help with weight when folded up in your handbag.

    As a side note - Atropos, the way you've got your sling in that picture will make that muscle on the top of your shoulder hurt so bad after 20 mins! Try it with it fanned out to spread the weight. Sorry, the advice is only because I don't want you to give up on the sling thinking they hurt.

    Nomsie, as PPs have mentioned, every bub is different and go through stages. We also had a bjorn-style carrier that we used from 6 months and DH was a lot more confident having her in this as he doesn't have my 'cushioning'

    I still have my ring sling but also plan to brave a stretchy wrap one (will make my own) as would love to try wearing from early on and they just seem so good for when they are tiny. I'll be spending lots of time on Youtube working out how to put one on! I won't spend much though because I know I could end up with a bub who loves their personal space and fights any carrier.
    Thank you

    She is quiet young in all of these, I love the woven wraps which are the yellow and pink/white ones the yellow one is quiet thick I wouldn't recccomend it the pink/white one is a pamir which is 100% linen a very very nice wrap by far the best wrap I have ever had. The purple/blue one is quiet thick too but was very easy to learn with. The other one is a ring sling my fav thing for newborns/quick carries even still now for DD. I will be getting another one for this baby and using the ergo when they are older.

    I was actually carrying DD today in the bamberoo, but didn't snap a photo!

    I can't find any on this computer of me carrying her, will have to have a look

    Loving all these gorgeous pics!

    - ergo with daddy
    - strangely high fwcc with a woven
    - hip carry with a converted ring sling
    - my first back carry! Haven't taken any better shots since unfortunately

    She's around 4 months in all of these !

    Plenty of shots of her in a stretchy wrap when she was little but they're on the computer. Loved the stretchy wrap but she's so big I had to stop using it pretty early!
