    Like this.


    And the Ergo baby (which I have) recommends you put it on in a similar way.
    And lots of carriers I was looking at but can't be bothered to list, are the same.
    They're fine when out for long periods but for a short run twice a day I will just lose patience with it.

    The ring slings are looking like an easier option all right.

    ^^ that is way too much effort haha so must easier to put them in on your shoulder. I do a shoulder one for my ergo no worries at all.

    ETA - but a RS is still the easiest for quick trips takes 20 seconds where as sometimes the SSC are a bit of a pain to get the shoulder buckle done up on your own

    Yeah, I found the ergo with infant insert a pita to put on so never used it in the newborn stage, ring sling is much easier, bub over your shoulder then feet in first and tucked up then adjust material. Ssc is much quicker when they're older and no need to worry about infant inserts.

    Thanks for your feedback everyone, sounds like a ring sling is definitely the way to go.
    Now I have another question ... has anyone tried the Walkabout ring sling? It's available on eBay and isn't as expensive as some of the others. It appears to be made by an Australian WAHM. Online reviews seems generally ok but thought I'd check with my BH friends!

    I tried one once and they're not that comfortable, I found it really painful on my shoulder.
    If you check out pixiemama or angelrock baby, they have little frog RS's for about $60
