Was a success!! I ended up using the Tula. She slept on the bus on the way home and I successfully transferred her to the cot! First time she has slept in the Tula.
Hi! I have this pretty making its way to me, yippee. I haven't been a big babywearer, just used the manduca for my ds when the pram wasn't practical, but I fell in love with this print a couple of weeks ago and scored a new one tonight. I wanted a ringsling for bub due in november so I'll try justifying it that way
DH can never know about this... Hehe. ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1433071904.495113.jpg
Pretty!! I'll probably sell my RS. It's just not love.
I feel this is a slippery slope...
So glad I found this thread. I'm due in September and want to snuggle my baby close to my hear. There are so many slings, wraps and contraptions to chose from. Can you please tell me where to start? What's your favourite? Any hints or tips would be greatly appreciated. I do have some back problems so would love one that has some good support. Thank you ladies!
I think it really depends on each person as to which carrier works best. I also have lower back pain so although i enjoy baby wearing i can't do it for long periods. When ds1 was a baby I found a stretchy sling good then switched to a buckled carrier such as the ergo. I find the ergo very easy to put on and off in a hurry. When ds got a big bigger I bought a woven which can be very comfortable as you have a huge range of different carries you can try, but I just found it a but hassle so didn't really get on with it. Ended up making it into a ringsling instead which I used quite a lot with hip carries. I'm due in 4 weeks with new baby so I'm going to give the ringsling a try but havnt used it with a newborn yet.
I don't know about here but in the UK there are lots of sling libraries where you can hire different carriers to try as they can be pricey. As I've said everyone is different and what suits one person may not work for you.
