Moving on from a stretchy sling - recommendations please

Hi Ladies

Title says it all really. I've been using a Moby since my baby was 5 days old. We both love it however at almost 7 months old & 17lb I'm not finding it as supportive.

I'm looking for something lightweight & snug (but not so snug he can't have his arms out) like a sling but stronger (woven instead of stretchy?) ideally something which will last him another year or 2 and can be used on the back as well as the front.

I'd love to try a sling library but annoyingly our local one is only open 1 morning a week when we are at a class.

Tulas are nice. I have an Ergo and love it but if you're looking for something more lightweight, I think Tula is the way to go. Or Lenny Lamb.

I'd go with a woven. Didymos are great for a first one. They fit your description. Most are thin-medium and are easy to wrap with. I'm in the US so I can't help with retailers but I'm sure there are plenty in England. There are also buy, sell, trade Facebook pages.
