So I went to a used clothing & equipment sale that my former MOM's club hosts each spring, and I was hoping to find a carrier. I found a ring sling, which is what I was really looking for, but it was a size medium, and I figure I'll need a L or XL, so I didn't buy it. But I did find an Eddie Bauer sling that came with a newborn insert - I paid $5 for it, so I figured that it was at least worth a try. Has anyone here tried this particular carrier? I can't really find much online - but I suspect it's this: http://www.thebabyplanetonline.com/52894.html, or something similar. It's got a lot of padding, and it appears to adjust similar to ring slings - it has a square adjuster with a strap that hangs down.
Anyway, since I have no babies, atm, to try it on, I'm just looking for anyone that has any experience with it. And I'm kind of wondering why a sling would need a newborn insert??
