Sling - Menifee,CA
I would like to try a sling this time when I have my baby but I have NO idea which ones are good. I am particularly interested in ones that say they are good for nursing tho I don't really understand how that works b/c it seems like the baby sits lower than that. Any recommendations?

I wished I would have used a sling with my first 2 babies. it truely is a god sent! I bought the slingrider at babies r us for 30.00 and used it for 6 months with my 3rd baby. I could nurse while walking around disneyland! I wasn't slowed down by having to stop and nurse every 2 hours and no one knew. it was also great on my back because I wasn't trying to carry the baby around when she would cry at the gocery store or whatever errand I had to take her on. get one get one get one it takes getting use to so practice using it at home first. good luck

I nursed in a Kangaroo Pouch, Maya Sling and Ergo Carrier. It can be done.
I would see if you have a local retailer near you so you can go in and check out the different styles.
With my next I think I may try the Moby Wrap. But my favorite with a newborn was my adjustable pouch then when they were a little bigger the Ergo (which I still use with my almost 3 year old - on my back). You can use the Ergo from birth - teenager (just kidding but the weight limit is something crazy like 65lbs!) Go to http://www.ergobabycarrier.com/ and you can watch video of a newborn in the carrier and all the different ways to carry the baby once they have head control.
I just noticed you live in Menifee - Not sure how far Redlands is from you but it would be worth it I'm sure to drive to Kissui, check out the site:http://shopkissui.com/index.php?cPath=33&osCsid=7662f...
