Infant Carriers

I Love Love Love my moby wrap. It's the most comfortable carrier ever, especially for long periods. But it's a total PITA to put on. I like to use a carrier when I go to pick up my DD1 from daycare so that I don't have to carry the carseat into school and then carry that, plus all of DD1's stuff out with me.

What carriers do you all use that you like?

I too enjoy the Moby but agree it's a PITA to get wrapped. I really want to try a ring sling when we have the spare $ for a similar style with the fabric but that will be easier to put on.

The only other carrier I've used is an Ergo. I loved it, DD wasn't so into it (though she likes the back carry now with DH). I have yet to use it with DS but I plan to soon as it would be so much easier for a lot of situations then dragging the carseat around.

I love my Beco Butterfly. Sarah has already spent a lot of time in it around the house because if she's fussy and I need to get things done, the carrier puts her to sleep!

Hmm... I have one that looks similar, it's called a Boba, but don't think it works for newborns. I was looking on their site today and it look like later versions of the carrier have a modification that makes it snap into a shorter carrier for newborn use. Sad I have the original. Ugg.

I was thinking ring sling too...

I have a 7sling (I think that's what it's called) that's really easy to put on and use. I love slings! Mia, for DS2, I bought a set of sling rings cheap online and then went to JoAnn Fabrics and had 2yards of fabric cut to make my own sling. I usually get coupons once a month so it made the fabric really cheap. They have tutorials on YouTube for making your own sling.

Yes my Beco has an infant insert that you velcro in for infants under a certain weight. Without it Sarah wouldn't be long enough to reach the top of the carrier.

I have an Ergo with the newborn insert and I love it so far!

I may need to do this. Ring and fabric slings are a racket! It's a crime that they charge $100 for something that probably costs them $5 to make.
