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.
    Thank you so much for your reply. I have looked into the Ergo based on some other comments on this thread but there were lots to chose from within their range. It would be great to try them out as you mentioned. I think I'll try and find a local Wrgo stockist and try them on - just to get a basic idea before bubs comes... Assuming they got over my belly!

    There is such thing as a sling meet? So much to learn!!

    Haha yes! You get to try on different carriers and see different styles. Often there are vendors there selling stock too.

    Has anybody tried the mini monkey dynamic carrier? It looks similar to the ergo 360 as you can do a front carry but has an extra back strap and is quite a lot cheaper. I didn't get on so well with the infant insert with my ergo original and found it a bit lacking in head support. Got baby number 2 coming in 10 days and really want to be able to carry him around comfortably.

    No sorry. The only structured carrier I have used is a Tula.

    In due with my first so can't give experienced advice but I didn't like the look of the Ergo Insert either (although love it for when she's a bit bigger). Therefore after some research and advice I bought a Bykay Jersey wrap to use for the first few months. I like that it keeps Bub much closer than the Ergo insert does.
    Hope that helps xx

    Thanks. I had my little one on Monday and so far I've used my ringsling a few times and love it for a newborn. It keeps them so close they fall to sleep instantly and as he's so tiny at the moment it doesn't really strain your back at all. Only thing that worries me a bit is that he's all curled up so not sure how safe it is for long periods?! Anybody have any advice on this?
