I couldn't pick just one pick... Mainly because if I look good, then she's looking somewhere else, and vice versa. So, these 3 are a group from last year. I like them for this photo meme thingy because it shows the ease with which parenting 3 kids can be when one is being worn, instead of needing my hands. Justin was changing from a Tiger scout to a Wolf Scout. A very important ceremony during which a parent (usually the mom) will meet their son at the end of a trail thing.
ANYWAY, I could do the changing of the hats, scarves, etc. without any problems. I do seem to have the sling on a bit low with the rings much lower than I like now, but that's just me being nit-picky.
I got "hooked" wearing my babies when Justin was a baby. I just used a front carrier and only until he was 6 or 7 months, but I could see how much easier it was to bring him places.
When Evan was born, I borrowed my sister's Nojo sling. Very big and bulky, with lots of padding. It was actually way too big for my small frame, but I carried Evan in it for months because I didn't know there were any other slings available!
Well. When Corinne was born, I again used the Nojo sling for her newborn days. Again, it was fine, but I found (through the lovely internet!) that there were so many more choices!!! I bought a Maya sling and still love it. I am a very frugal person, so buying a variety of colors and patterns is NOT my idea of a fun time. (Holy crap. Do you know how much they cost???) So I bought the nice bluejean looking wrap that matches everything. And we use it all the time. In fact, I plan on using the sling for the baby and the stroller to carry the car seats at the airport tomorrow! Much more practical, and she is very comfortable and relaxed in it.
Becoming a wolf... See the baby tucked in there? With her brother's hat on?
Me and my brood. Can't even see the poor baby under that hat!
