Finally got around to taking some pics... so I think I'm wearing him pretty well. He certainly is comfortable and sleeps any time I put him in there!
I gotta say, a few weeks ago I was brushing up on using the RS properly, and I heard or read somewhere that most people wear their slings on their non-dominant shoulder. I'm pretty sure I usually wear on my dominant one- but largely because when DD is in the RS its in a hip carry, which I want on my non-dominant side- which means the sling is on the right shoulder, you know? I think this is just what I was used to with the RS....well, tonight we went for a walk, and I realized why you'd want to wear it on the non-dominant side (don't laugh at me if this is totally obvious to everyone else!)....I realized that my left arm had totally free, complete range of motion, whereas my right (dominant) is totally restrained by the sling! So I might try it on the other side next time I wear it!!
So, other than that... I have to say... I LOVE the linen for the cool factor! It is so much cooler than the Maya RS! So I am VERY glad I got it for that reason.
My only complaint, which is not just about the linen one, but about RSes in general...I can't get my rails to stay where they are meant to. That was one of the things I watched videos for... to make sure I was threading it right and then adjusting it correctly. Well, I only carry Z in that belly to belly carry that I am using in my pics... so I can mostly keep the outer rail where it should be... but the inner rail (meaning the one that is against my body in the carry, but actually on the outer edge of the rings), no matter what I do, will not stay on the outside at the rings... does that make sense? Even when I have JUST rethreaded it properly, as soon as I try to adjust it, that rail slides over the other fabric, bunching in toward the middle. This is happening with both my linen sling and my Maya. Any advice?
