    Default Hip carrier?

    Anyone have any recommendations on a nice hip carrier? I really want one for like doing laundry (we have to go to a laundry mat) I could try putting her in the baby hawk I guess but I just think she'd really like being on my hip. she is usually there anyway lol.

    Sounds like you're thinking of a ring sling! Here's a hip carry picture tut.

    I've seen some other carriers made especially for hip carries, but they're usually more expensive than a ring sling (or they're really poorly made and uncomfortable by this point). If you do go with a ring sling, I'd get one for toddlers, sleeping baby production (hip carry pics link above is from her site) has recommendations for those.

    You can do a hip carry with a mei tai. I've never tried it, but I found this (you'll have to scroll down the page to get to the hip carry instructions). I'm sure someone on youtube has video instructions too. I'd play around with this first since you already have a mei tai and if you get it to work, share pics with us on here!

    Yes, I find my ring sling to be great for a short-term hip carry if DD gets clingy while doing chores around the house. Easy in, easy out!

    No wonder I couldn't find anything other than stuff they sell at walmart for a hip carrier! Thanks!
    I think I tried to get Trevor to use the babyhawk as a hip carrier once now that you say that.. I can't remember how that turned out though.
