    Default Wearing my baby??

    I have seen the term "wearing my baby" a few times on this forum. It seems to be a good idea. Can anyone please suggest a good and safe "nursing sling" for my DS?

    Sleeping baby productions has nice ring slings cheap. She also provides excellent safety information. I liked using a ring sling for nursing while out and about with an infant. Moby wraps also work well but are less convenient to pop on and off.

    I loved the Moby for my itty bitty baby. The ERGO for my older baby. I only bought the ERGO later so I can't actually speak to how well it works with a newborn. My cousin loves it though with her newborn.

    Check out the baby wearing forum! You'll get lots of answers in there about what could work best for you.

    I do like the Moby for the newborn phase, though I've heard that Sleepy Wrap and Baby K'tan are good with less fabric to mess with. I love our Beco Butterfly II and have since he was about 2 months old (he's 8 months now)...
