    I tried my daughter in a sling when she was born and I always felt like I was squishing her. With her being two when then new baby gets here. We are a pretty active family with dogs and now horses and such I am going to need help finding a sling that will keep the baby close and secure, and well wrapped so that we can still get out and do the things we like to. Baby isn't due until July so hopefully something that won't be too hot either.

    Thanks if you made it through all that... Any ideas?

    If you are going to be active with her, how about an Ergo or a mei tai? (You have to use the budda or kangaroo carry with the mei tai for a newborn.)

    I am loving my babyhawk!!! I have 3 slings (LOL) and find the babyhawk easy to put on/off and it feels comfy and secure. :thumbup:

    Id say a calin bleu gauze would be fab for you, lots of different ways to wrap it either in a cradle carry, or cross carry with legs tucked in, very lightweight and breezey for the summer too so no sweaty baby :)

    so like this

    or like this

    Theyre also very easy to come by second hand, and have a great resale price if you find you dont get on with it. Also more supportive than the moby as they arent as stretchy xx
