Baby Slings

Hey there! I was wondering if anyone knows of a good baby sling to get. I saw a lady holding her baby in one...it looked so soft and comfortable for the baby...better than those "stiff" carriers. All the slings I'm seeing still look stiff. This one looked like a WAY soft cotton material...went over one sholder and under the other (it kinda had a sholder strap too I think) Anyways~ I should have asked her where she got it because I cant seem to find one anywhere. =(

Krista I came across an awesome sling at a little boutique in Montana. They are a little pricey but very chic and comfy! They are called "sprout pouch" here's their web site http://www.sproutpouch.com/index.html take out any dashes that may show up. The fit of the pouch is the most crucial part. But they are very comfy and can be used for several years from infant to toddler. They are made in Montana which is where I live but they have so many cute fabrics and they are reversable! Anyway, check them out I bought one and a regular front carrier too but plan on using my sprout pouch more often! Good luck!

another good one I found was hotslings.com. I bought one of their stretch cotton slings.

I've been looking into the sling too. I saw it at a flea market and haven't been back since, and I can't remember the company name. I just did a search on google for "baby slings" and I got plenty of hits, you could try that and find a retailer close to you so you can check them out.

I personally use a Maya Wrap ring-sling, and I LOVE it. Mei tais are also very popular. If "baby sling" doesn't give you what you're looking for, google "baby wearing" and see what it brings up. 1sttimemommy, as far as I know, the really good slings aren't sold in common retail stores. Not totally sure why, but there ya go. But, if you have a sewing machine, they are SUPER easy to make, and you can find free patterns on the internet.

I just bought one of the New Native baby slings from a seller on Ebay. My friend had one and it was really nice.
