    Slings...JMO

    Advertisements
    I am a mom of 3,,, and by far my sling is my favorite...
    I have the Bjorn,, but the weight limit always kicks me.
    The Mia Tie.. wow you litterly need 4 hands to put it on...
    but the sling is awsome... I have had mine now for about 4 months, Cole is a healthy 27lbs at 9 months.. It is perfect....
    Even my 2 year old like to "ride" in it...

    Yep, I love my sling for quick trips.

    The Mei Tei is easy once you practice with it, it's much better for longer trips out though!

    I like my sling but now that he is older it is harder to put on so I use the kelty carrier a lot.

    I didn't like the bjorn style carriers when Darian was little and by the time I had Jacob I knew they were bad for developing hip joints so I didn't bother getting one.

    I really want a Mai Tei. My favorite was my wrap though when he was little.

    Which sling would you guys suggest for a four month old, who is TINY! 14lbs 24inches.
    Also her head control isnt 100% soild, I would say its about 90%

    Ring slings are my fave for younger babies, and mei tais are my favorite for older babies and toddlers.

    the only issues that i've heard with ring slings are that they can cause some back problems for mom if it's used alot. i've got a moby to use since it goes over both shoulders and i've already got some back issues.
