    Agree with this. I have never found any credible sources that state they cause hip problems. However i have read articles from credible sources ( NSW fair trading and ACCC ) that state baby slings should not be used as some babies have died of suffocation just have to be careful with anything i think

    We love our BB too legs sit well and soob we will be putting her in the forward facing position

    I love my ergo! DD is tiny and I could use it from when she was about 2.7kg with the insert. I use it daily... While shopping, school drop offs etc.

    The only thing I struggle with is sitting down with it on. So if DD is in a clingy mood I have to be standing all the time... But I'm short so maybe that's why?? So I just use my hugabub at home and the ergo when I'm out and about

    I was allowed to try mine in the store and walked around with DD in it for about 10 mins.

    Good luck, I love mine

    I've been reading this thread with great interest… I'm looking for a carrier/sling for my first bub due in January I live in a very hot, humid area and am looking for something cool that will suit a newborn. I've been investigating breezy baby slings and they seem to fit the bill. Does anyone have any experience with them? Or any other recommendations? Thanks

    I have one. I found out hard to use to be honest. But others love ring slings. I might try it again now that my dd is a bit bigger. I think they're probably great once you get the idea of it.

    Yep, this. I work in paeds and all the paeds use them for their kids and I've even seen a paediatric ortho surgeon recommend a family use one to help correct very mild dysplasia.

    I've had a sleepy wrap (like a hugabub) a baby bjorn and now an ergo performance. I've liked them all for DS different sizes/stages. The sleepy wrap was amazing when he was a newborn and he hated the ergo until he was about 1 because of how it held his legs. He likes it now that his knees come to the end of the 'seat' bit and he is more comfortable.
