Best All Around Sling

I'm looking for advice on the best sling for a newborn on up. I used the standard Baby Bjorn with my daughter, which she loved. However, my back didn't love it. I thought about the new Baby Bjorn Air Carrier, however, I would also like to have something that cradles the newborn (sling) but can be converted to a sitting up carrier later. So far the one I see that offers a sling type deal (and can easily breastfeed discreetly) that converts to a carrier like the Bjorn is the Ergo Baby Carrier. Has anyone tried it? Any other recommendations? I would like to find one item that fits the bill to avoid buying mulitple slings/carriers.

I can't say enough good things about the Ergo, I love, love, love it.

Also good is a Mei Tai style carrier, a Moby or a Hot Sling. My favorite is the Ergo though. But it's not as stylish as the others if that's a consideration to you.

Try The Peanutshell or Hotslings. I'm not familiar with the 'Ergo', but it's worth a try to look into these. I've tried both, from newborn to just about a year now and liked both.
Good luck, there're soo many out there.

I have two ergos, the old style and the new style. I love love love my Ergo. I used it with my first from about 6mos until past 3 and with my second from newborn and up. The newborn carry takes some practice but it is possible. Also, I was able to nurse both in it.

I highly recommend it, plus www.ergobabycarrier.com has a great return policy if you aren't happy with it. Or search craigslist for a used one.

Good luck!

LOVE my Maya Wrap! Hated the Baby Bjorn when we used it for my son! Totally hurt my back. Tried the Maya Pouch with my son. Loved it while he was still small enough to use it. He grew out of it by 6 months. Bought a slightly used Maya Wrap from www.mayawrap.com for my DD before she was born. I used it daily from the time she was 3 weeks old to about 10 months. Now I just use it sporadically when she won't sit in her stroller or just wants extra snuggle time with Mommy when we are out and about. I also use it as a burp cloth or snuggle blanket when we are on the go and it folds up nicely into my diaper bag (or rather it gets shoved nicely into it) and it's wash and wear so easy to care for.

Kind of pricey, but you can google the pattern to make one if you are good at sewing.

I recommend the Over the Shoulder Baby Holder. It has shoulder padding which makes it comfortable on your shoulder. I have used mine for all three of my kids and they all love it. It can get kind of hot in the summer since it's padded but it has the most support for a newborn. I have another sling carrier that's not padded but it does not offer as much support for newborns.
I highly recommend the OSBH. It's light, comfortable (or as comfortable as they can get), and quite easy to used once you get used to it.
I've used the Bjorn too and it is too painful on the back.

I used two - I liked them both for different reasons. The native Carrier packs easily, and keeps baby really snug. Tough for little newborns - their heads get floppy in there, but they do make a pillow for it. I also used the Moby wrap. It is basically a really long piece of material that you wrap around you and your baby. I really liked that one, and used it until my baby was just over a year. This one is nice because there are many different holds it can be wrapped to accomodate - baby can be on your front, back, facing you or outward.
Good Luck!

I bought my sling from www.thingamasling.com. I love it. It is a ring sling, and the tail has pockets to hold cell phone, wallet, etc. It is one that has different positions for carrying your little one, and grows with baby. They are custom made (made for your height and weight, weight meaning length of the sling), have a variety of fabrics to choose from. The owner is great to work with, will listen to what you want/need, and will get you your order within a week. The owner told me that she went to Florida for a week, and used the sling for 10+ hours a day every day and did not bother her back at all. I don't have any problems with my back when I use the sling, but when I use a front pack, my back kills me with in a 1/2 hour. So I highly recommend this sling.

Good luck!

Hi M.,
I have a carrier soft structured carrier similar to the ERGO but, with a cute/stylish pattern called Angelpack LX. It is for babies 10-35 pounds and my baby loved it more than the New Native Sling. I loved it more than the Bjorn which caused me major back pain. I can carry my 18 pound 4 month old comfortably and it's easy to use. I have also carried my 32 pound 2 year old on my back with comfort. You can check the site for more info and retailers/ etailer http://www.angelpack.com/index.html

I tried a lot of slings and totally loved The Maya Wrap. I used it with both of my kids for years. You can use it with the smallest new born up to a bigger kid (my second wa in it at times at 4 and a half believe it or not). I loved them so much I used to distribute them but don't anymore. You can look online to find a distributor near you. By the way I think their new gently padded sling is really great and even easier to put on then the older one. Good luck, The sling was the most important piece of equipment I had, I don't know how people manage without them. M.

Hi M.,

I have a 5 month old. I started out with the baby bjorn & it hurt my back too. When she was 3 months I purchased the Ergo & love it; I highly recommend it. The Ergo does have an incert for a newborn, which you purchase separately. I go on daily walks with her in it for about an hour & it does not hurt my back (she is now up to 15 lbs). I also have one of those wrap slings called the Baby Pouch, which I also purchased when she was 3 months. I wished I had the Baby Pouch when she was born. Both are really comfortable for both me & my husband.
Similar & cheaper than the Baby Pouch is a wrap called the Moby. The difference is the Baby Pouch is made of a 4 way stretch fabric & the Moby, only a 2 way stretch. Being she was a little bigger when I purchased mine, I liked the 4 way stretch because it was easier to get her in & out of.

You might want to check out the Pump Station in Hollywood. They have a weekly carrier clinic where they demonstrate all of the available wraps & carriers. They will even help you out if you bring in your carrier & need help adjusting it. It helped me that I went when she was 3 months because I was able to try them with her, however I wish I went sooner!

My "baby" is 21 months now and around 26 pounds and I will still use it to carry him around when he doesn't feel like walking. It really is easy on your back!

I know that the majority of people like the ERGO, but just look at The Ultimate Baby Carrier. It has a lot of material, but, once you get the hang of it, it is just the most yummy for both you and the baby. All of the other carriers either put the weight of the baby on one shoulder or on both; the UBC distributes the weight equally. It wasn't available when I had my kids, but my SIL has raised four girls with this thing - as a lactation educator, I love it because it encourages natural feeding and allows for skin to skin contact.

The Ergo is awesome for older babies. My 10 month old loves it and it's great on my back. But when he was a newborn I started with the New Native Sling, then when he could hold his head up I moved into the Maya Wrap and alternated with the Over the shoulder baby holder. In these I could sit him crossed legged facing outward or have him reclined to nurse. Now I use the Ergo. Don't use a carrier that forces a babies legs apart and don't have him face outward without being able to look back to you for support. It can be scary if the baby is forced to look at strangers and can't turn his head back to you for comfort.
Good For you for wanting to wear your babies!!

Congrats on your upcoming baby! I have a few friends who loved the Hot Sling.. it was available at Target in the store or on-line. I bought one also..but my son (who was 10 pounds at birth) seemed huge in it.. HOWEVER.. after I returned it I was told I should've just used the next size bigger. According to their sizing chart, I was a medium..but a few people have told me they "upgraded" to the next size up.. it's good for breastfeeding & it's very cute & comfy! One last thing..my lactation consultant said it's not a good idea to use the baby bjorn for babies under 3 months of age..it forces their hips out in too far of an angle..Good luck & congrats again! (p.s. Now I use the bjorn..for our 6 month old, and have been since after 3 months-but obviously not for nursing.. :)

The Ergo is the most liberating thing I have tried. My daughter weighss 21 lbs and I do not feel the weight of her whatsoever! I can be hands free all the time when she is in it and I love having the option to carry her three ways. The snap on hoodie is great for head support and and she will typically fall asleep in it as soon as I snap it over her. I cannot say enough good things about this carrier.

I had a baby bjorn the first time around too and it killed my back. When my second son was born I used an ultimate baby wrap when he was tiny and an Ergo when he was older (the UBW is about the same price as the infant insert for the Ergo and comes in great colors - I have the bright orange one). I loved the UBW when my son was tiny but it is so stretch it is hard to use with a bigger baby. The Ergo worked great as my son got bigger. Both the UBW and the Ergo are much easier on my back than the baby bjorn. If there are any slings or carriers that work just as well for a newborn as a 2 y.o. I haven't seen them yet. I hope you find something that works. I do have a regular sling but I found it painful to use (too much weight on one shoulder) as my baby got older plus he was constantly trying to slip out of it which killed the hands free aspect. I didn't like using it when he was a newborn because I was always afraid he'd suffocate.

Hi M.
I got the Ergo baby carrier on the advice of a Mom when my son was 4 months old and I have to say it it absolutely the BEST piece of baby equipment I have owned!!!! My son is now two and I still use it regularly when I am out and about, it is the only thing that keeps him from skipping off when we are in public places. I can also still carry him on the front (my son is light for his age) but this is so lovely because I feel like we get to have super close time. He loves it and I have travelled internationally several times over the two years and it was the perfect airport accessory. It is extremely comfortable and although I didn't have it when he was newborn I believe it has a newborn insert which I am sure works great. Can't say enough about it.

I used the Bjorn with my first child, but found the Ergo baby carrier when my second child was 4 months old. I thought it was pricey, but all of the on-line reviews were so positive. I've used it on many occassions (mostly in the front) and when my child was 5-months, we travelled away from home for about ten days. I discreetly breastfed my child, while shopping, eatting at buffets, and at a bonfire, without anyone aware of what I was doing. It's so sturdy and yet comfortable for both parent and child. The Bjorn and sling used to hurt my back, but the Ergo didn't cause any discomfort, even after hours of use. At 10-months old, my child is almost 22 pounds, so she's too big to discreetly feed using the Ergo now, but she loves being in it. I've used it, placing her on my back, doing chores and she often falls asleep with the motion. It can go up to holding up to 40 pounds or so, so you shouldn't need to buy more than one carrier. I highly recommend it.

They have a 90-day money back guarantee, so you can try it out and if you don't like it you can return it. That was critical for me because at the point when I ordered it, I had already tried 3 other baby carriers which I didn't like. Thankfully they were all hand-me-downs otherwise I would have been out a lot of money!

I had the same issues. I tried them all. Hotslings and Native Carrier are great when baby is little, and then later as a hip carrier and are great in a hurry and fold into nearly nothing. I had and still have a Hip Hammock which I used the other day for my 7 mos old and later with my 3 1/2 year old who was having a tantrum -so it's versatile and a great investment ($29 at target or wal-mart). I also received a Moby wrap as a gift and a Baby Pouch as a gift. I must say that these, by FAR are the most versatile and really easy to use. They are extremely long pieces of fabric that you wrap around your body and tie around your waste. I carried my newborn in it as a sling and as a pouch. I breastfed in them while walking around and making dinner. I have used it as a front rider with both the baby facing in and out. I will try it next as a back carrier. If I was to only have one carrier, I would have to say either the Movy Wrap or the Baby Pouch ($80 babypouch.biz). Good Luck!

I have an Ergo Carrier and LOVE IT! It is SOOO much better than the Baby Bjorn b/c the weight of the baby is not on your shoulders (like the Bjorn), but rather on your hips. We live at the beach and I'm able to walk much further with the Ergo than the Baby Bjorn. Supposedly they way the baby sits in the Ergo is better for their hips or something. =) For a newborn though you do need to buy an extra piece. If you want a tighter fitting sling for a newborn, I have one from the following website: http://www.sleepingbaby.net/
She only makes several each day so you just have to order when she has 'points' available...seems a bit confusing at first, but it's not and the lady making the slings was wonderful to work with. Good luck!

I use the maya wrap...at first it can be a little complicated but once you get the hang of it it is great! you can use if for nursing, cradling your baby, when he is older he can rest on your hip and be supported by the wrap, he can even be on your back when he is a toddler..it's great! My daughter is 11 months old and still uses it. My sister in law used her wrap for all three of her kids and used it on all until they turned 2 1/2. Hope this helps.

Hi Monkia, I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Ergo.
You have to buy an insert in order to carry a newborn, however. But later you can wear the baby in the front, on your side or even on your back. It is so much more comfortable than any other carrier ( I tried all of them!!)

If you want more of a sling until the baby is a little older, I also reccomend a really simple sling that you can get at Target. It has a padded shoulder strap and the sides of the sack-part are gathered. I can't remember the name of it, but it may be evenflo and I have seen them at the second hand store all the time.
Good luck!

I also love the Moby. I invested in almost every sling out there and this is by far the most comfortable for me and for baby.
