I have a K'Tan and I love it. So does Desmond. I haven't tried nursing in it though, but I usually just wear him around the house when he's in the mood to always be held. Desmond just likes to be where he can see. Although when I first used the K'tan I didn't have him in right and he squished my boob so I leaked all over him lol. Poor kid!

I don't have any wraps, but would like to maybe try one. Not in the budget though. I have been using a ring sling and a mai tai so far, but haven't nursed in either one yet. I attempted it in the ring sling, but couldn't get it worked out and I think I'm going to wait until he has more head control and is a little more sturdy.
Kelly, if you are interested in babywearing, there's a great group of very experienced and passionate baby-wearers on the baby-wearing board!
There have been days recently where Ella has spent hours in the moby. Upright against my chest With her legs froggied up It's the only thing that will stop the screaming! And the only way I can get anything done around the house. We also toured Ikea with the moby today! Lol. It's WAY too hot though, so I'm in the market for something else... Maybe a ring sling. And I plan to make a Mei tai at some point.
bought the sleepy wrap recently on babysteals......borrowed my friends with ds1 and we both loved it

My friend made me a wrap with Olivia and I loved it, and passed it on to another family member. So I picked out fabric to make a wrap for myself and another new mom friend. If you watch for sales on gauze and use a coupon at JoAnn's, you can make two wraps for less than $20.
I haven't nursed in it yet, because I'm still a little anxious about her air supply while eating in it. Maybe when she has more head control. I did nurse Olivia before, and I remember one time when I wasn't wearing breast pads, I was walking around, leaking on the other side. Oops!!! We have a ring sling too, and the wrap is more comfortable, but a little more hassle to get it on. ALso, I realized I've never had a newborn during the summer in Phoenix. Ick!
HEre is a pic of my DIY wrap that I'm using with Maddie. I accidently had one side twisted in the picture, but I really like the fabric. It's a light seersucker type because they were out of long pieces of gauze.
Thanks to this thread and subsequent googling and youtubing, I bought one. Can't wait to get it!
