    Default recommend me a sling/wrap/carrier!

    I need help!

    dd is 3 weeks old and we have a wedding in 2 weeks that she will be going to with us, I have planned on wearing her so she sleeps and to keep hands away

    Currently I have a ergo, but its so hot and bulky I was hoping to get something more ******lined (and hopefully something that sort of looks ok wiht a formal dress on!)

    I did have both a hug-a-bub and a kleinsmekker meitai with dd1 but I found there was alot of fabric left over after tying so I sold them.

    So, Can anyone suggest something easy to use safely, not to hot/bulky thats sutible for a 5ft3 size 8 to wear a 4 week old in?

    Or any shops in adelaide I can go to try some on? I would have gone down to natures cradle, but now that it's closed I have no idea if there is a simular shop!

    Thanks in advance

    I don't have any practical experience but have you looked into a peanut (erm not sure if its a peanut carrier or if there's another word in the title but I'm sure googling peanut carrier would set you on the right way. Toys r us sells them) or perhaps a nurture sling?

    Hi hun if I was you I would go for a ring sling made from a woven wrap. Super easy to put on once you get the hang of it. YouTube will teach you all you need to know when it comes to wearing a ring sling and getting the positioning right for you and bub. Have a look at a Facebook site call Baby wearing buy sell swap, feel free to ask for advice on there to. They will also be able to help you find a Babywearing group near you if you ever want some hands on advice or to try on a ring sling before you buy have fun!

    Peanut shell carrier (for the PP)

    I would look at a mesh ring sling like the Breeze Baby or similar- very light.

    I think a ring sling would be lovely. That's what I wear when I'm going somewhere nice.

    Look up Adelaide Babywearers on fb, there's a big group of them and you'd be able to try a few things out at a meet before deciding what to buy

    For something useful, light, easy to clean, and packs down to nothing, try the breeze baby sling. I've got a red one but they also come in black and in white. Very useful. Not as comfy as a carrier that sits on both shoulders but it's still a sling that lives in the nappy bag and is used every day. Got mine from an online baby shop based in Brisbane, but they're made in the USA.
