With so many baby slings on the market (most of which are not cheap) it is a dilemma as to which one to choose. With Mimi I went for a Baby Bjorn. However I found it very difficult to use. It was uncomfortable to wear, even when she was small it hurt my back. Not only that but I found it fiddly to use and almost needed two of us to put her in and out of it. In the end I hardly used it. I found it more hassle than it was worth. This time round I was recently moaning about the Baby Bjorn to my friend who recommended the Caboo Closer Sling. She said it would be money well spent and I have to agree with her. It has taken some getting used to. I had to watch a you tube video on how to wear it. Now I have grasped it I wouldn’t look back. It is easy to put on and off, comfortable to wear and distributes the weight effectively. I use it almost everyday now for the playschool run, daily chores (when Harri doesn’t want to be put down) or for going round the supermarket. However I did find their instructions a little confusing and not very clear hence why I had to watch the you tube video.
I have also heard good reviews about the Ergo Baby Carrier which can be worn on your front and back. I am thinking of trying to pick one of these up at some point. Although having gone on their website I think you need to be careful not to end up with a fake one if you are buying secondhand.
