    I'll be doing this next baby around I think I had a friend give up on wearing because she couldn't stand the insert. Now her ds is 8 months she's decided to buy another Tula and give it another go.

    I loved my hugabub stretchy wrap when my DD was tiny. She was always calm when in there and I lived how easy it was to get it nice and tight. I also liked that I could pre tie it. It helped that the weather was cooler too.

    Totally agree. The hug a bub was our gateway wrap into the woven world I loved it. I would put it on before leaving the house drive to the shops and just pop bub in once I got a woven I would literally use the double cross carry because it's the only one you could pre tie.

    Me too. I borrowed a friend's hugabub and am thanking my lucky stars that i havent seen her to return it yet. Im sick in bed with mastitis. 3 month old bub will only sleep if being held or worn - hubby came in and asked "have we got any babywearing devices that i can use so that i can take the boys out and he can sleep?" (Bless him!!) The ergo is on loan to a friend and my woven is too short for him (im a base 5. He's 6 foot). Gave him a quick tutorial on the hugabub and off they went. I did ask if he wanted me to look for a nice daddy carrier for him (i was thinking a boyish Tula or something) and he told me "I just want our back pack thingy one!!" (ergo) Wonder if i could use that as am excuse to get myself a Tula...

    I reckon you could! Lol. Hope you get better soon! I didn't have the pleasure of breastfeeding but I do know engorged boobs are painful I couldn't imagine what mastitis is like! Great hubby though!

    Hey Ladies i have been reading along and have a few questions that I was hoping you could help me with... I have a hugabub which I love (dd is around 7 1/2 months old) but am wondering if its getting a bit small and if I should upgrade to a woven wrap or ring sling? If a woven wrap which type/size would you recommend to start with? I am also going on a long haul flight by myself in 3 months time... Which do you think would be best for the plane? Thanks! xx

    I love my woven the best. I have a size 7 but find it too long. It depends on what sort of carry you want to do as they require different sizes.

    I used a ring sling at that age. I found it comfortable for the time frames i would carry. I used an angelpack and a mei tai too. Can you see if there id a sling meet near you, it would allow you to try different styles and carriers. I think size 5/6 seems to be a good start. For a long haul plane trip i am guessing a ring sling as you would need to take bub out through security (i think) as for starter brands i think little frog is a great affordable option.

    I stopped using the hubabub at around 4/5 months and used a mei tai. Now he's a year I also use my Tula for front carries and the mei tai for back carries because I can get him nice and high. We've been trying a woven wrap but it's not working. I've also been using a ring sling since about 7 months and I love them! Wish I used them from younger so quick and easy. We're also flying to Singapore in a week and a half so 8 hours and I'll be bringing the ring sling for quick ins and outs at the airport. Still undecided what I should use for the plane sleeps yet especially since it's overnight coming back.

    Honestly for a long flight I'd use an ssc or ring sling. A good base size to start in wovens is a size 6 depending on what size clothing you are. Anything under a size 12 i recommend a size 5 anything over a size 18 i recommend a size 7
