This is my first time posting in this forum - so a brief introduction. I'm Karen, Mum to one DS 2 yrs. and a baby girl who is 4 weeks old.
It seems that baby girl (4 weeks old) 'needs' to be held/carried a LOT. If she's awake, then it's carry her, as vertically as possible, or listen to her scream. (and WOW has she got some lungs!)
So I've been wearing her in the Moby a lot, which is comfortable, and she seems to like it, problem is, it's SO freakin' hot for both of us! (our apartment is way overheated, but that's a whole other issue )
So I want to get something else to carry her in . but what?
I thought maybe a ring sling? It seems like it would be cooler and definitely quicker to put on than the moby or a light weight woven (and I'm totally intimidated by woven wraps lol)
Is a RS a good option for a newborn?
What about a Mei tai style?
What do you prefer for newbies?
