The Baby Sling Rider was an absolute necessity! My oldest son played football and I put my newborn in what we called "the bag". She would go right to sleep. At home, if she was fussy put her in and right out she'd go. Going to the grocery store - instead of carrying the car seat I put her in the sling and she'd sleep right through the whole shopping trip. It was comfortable to wear and came in black so it matched whatever I was wearing. It is sold at Walmart and Target and is much cheaper and sturdier then the ones you see in boutique stores. It is a must have!
