    Me too.. I'm in Brisbane too and used the Breeze Baby for my Jan babe.. Was very cool, adjustable thanks to the rings and mets the TICKS guidelines for safety. I wore DD in an upright, chest to chest position as a newborn as cradle carries are not recommended. I loved that position as I could quickly adjust for breastfeeding on the go

    We had two and I found them both awkward to get on and off.

    Some 1st aid courses will tell you they are high risk as they can create a position for bubs that blocks their airway. Some have died in slings according to my 1st aid instructor.

    If you go with one be vigilant.

    Babies have only died in bag slings which do not conform to the afore mentioned ticks guidelines
    Particularly the infantino sling which has since been recalled due to the obvious danger issues!

    OP, ring slings are super easy and convenient once you suss them out, and great because they 'grow' with the baby, rather than requiring updating

    But once it's a bit bigger, a structured carrier like a Manduca (or Tula) would be great for convenience and comfort

    Bag slings. Not the same as ring slings.

    This is a bag sling. Very dangerous, has been responsible for infant death.

    This is a ring sling, no deaths, very easy to use safely and correctly.

    Dave, baby wearing is a world unto itself. There are more carriers out there than you've had hot dinners

    I still carry my 12 month old (almost 12kg) in our ring sling sometimes and have yet to have it loosen on me. wovenwraps sell ring slings, as does nurturenest.

    Ok we had both types but used the ring one the wrong way. Had a couple of those seat things that you wear the same as the ring one. That worked well

    Yup, still carry my 14 month old in a ring sling. Great for a hip carry while breastfeeding!

    There's lots of styles of carries for ring slings, most often the "wrong" ones you see are newborns in the cradle position. There are loads of tutorials on youtube to help show how to use them.

    Okay so now I've been looking at the baby breeze slings, for those ladies that have used the baby breeze slings with the tummy to tummy position it says it's suitable from birth onwards, but would it give bub enough neck support? It also says that you can use it for the cradle hold position, is that a safe position to use with this type of sling or is there going to be the same chin to chest issue? I'd go for a more structured carrier but am worried about bub getting too hot in it during summer and I need something that is light and easy to store away when out and about with bub & my DS who will be 20months when bub arrives (as I only have a 1 seater pram as cannot justify the cost of getting a 2 seater pram at this stage).
