i’ve never used a baby sling, but i’m planning to get one for baby #2. they seem like a good option for baby young babies, but probably aren’t the best choice for a carrier beyond like 3 months…seven slings seems to have that special all the time, so don’t feel like you have to rush to catch it. it’ll come back up!

I not a mom but worked in a daycare for several years, we tended to use the baby carriers almost like the sling, but more like a backpack/ with straps to buckle the baby in. They are awesome, and we noticed for the smaller babies it kept them more calm then sitting in a stroller when we went to the park. I also have friends with kids, and when going to mall or an outing it makes it easier to get around then the stroller.

No babies here, but DH’s cousin had a sling for their LO and they loved it.  He said it was the greatest thing ’cause baby could be all snug and the parent has both hands.  He also said he felt it was quite secure and was never scared about baby slipping out.  Pretty sure like harmonyeee mentioned, they only used it for the first few months.

I sister loved hers. ( I am currently 13wks) and she used it for a very long time because you can put the baby in there so many different ways. I plan on getting two. One like you posted and one that is a big wrap and you can put the baby in there a ton of different ways!

Those don’t look that secure to me.  I’ve seen a lot of moms use other slings, but they tend to encompass a lot of the torso.  Someone said there are some that are unsafe.  There are manufacturers jumping on the bandwagon but not making them safe.

I got one of those slings and I have not used it at all!  A friend gave me her Moby and I have used that a lot.

I’ve heard the Moby’s are very good and very safe.  I couldn’t remember the brand name when I was posting earlier, but that is it!

I would think for a little bit here and there it would be fine. For long time wear I would want something that carries evenly. Ever carry a backpack on one shoulder? It gets really heavy and uncomfortable after awhile.
