    I had a carrier Wobbles, and TBH it was a pain in the ass! I couldnt pu tit on on my own, and it made my back ache.

    ALTHOUGH...that is probably just me!
    I have a pouch sling which was good for Charlie (only got it a few months back) and will be cool for new baby (hopefully) It didnt hurt my back and Charlie was comfy in it too.

    I had a carrier when Seren was tiny and hated it, such a faff and was so uncomfy (I hate carriers with a passion). Then I got a pouch sling similar to Hels' and loved that then got my babyhawk mei tei and I can still carry Seren in that and it feels comfy (though now I am pregnant and have probs with my hips and back I don't do it anymore). Its so easy to use.

    I am going for a wrap sling this time, like a hugabub or similar.

    I have just been looking on the site. I was so impressed with the changing bag (Kina has one) I am going to buy one and a sling too. Just need to decide what pattern.

    My sister in law leant us her BabyBjorn carrier and I bought a coorie pouch sling (similar to the one in your picture but made of fleece and it's like a tube shape that you fold in half so no front or back etc).

    DH preferred the baby carrier and I preferred the sling. This time I'll use the coorie pouch but found the material had too much give in it so I'm also looking at Emilia's slings as the design looks great. I think they work out about £22

    Thats why I love my babyhawk so much. We went for the double layer, I have my retro hula girls on one side and when OH wants to wear it he has his camo side showing. I sadly don't have a photo of OH in it, but I have this one of me with Seren in a back hold.

    and a front carry (not the best pic sorry)

    I am seriously thinking of getting another one, I love them so so much.

    I got mine direct from the company in the USA (the lady is great, so friendly and i got in 2 weeks - custom made) http://www.babyhawk.com/

    if you google babyhawk though there are some British sites that sell them.
