Slings

Steph wants to see our favorite slings!

I have used only 3 different kinds of slings since my children have been born and the first one I ever used I don't use anymore. I have found better ones! These two pictures are of the Maya Wrap I have. Red still loves to be in the sling...he likes the mei tie better even if it is pink camo, I just don't have any pictures of him in it!
I also love the mei tai because it is just so comfortable for long days like we had at the children's museum. I was able to put her facing out so she could see everything or I could face her in so she could take a nap.


I would love to have more but I don't know how to make them and our budget doesn't allow me to get all the different ones I would love to own. And I can't seem to win any contests that are giving them away :)

They look so happy being worn! Popeye takes his best naps while being worn, and that's when I can get a little done around here:)

The mei tai has been a lifesaver for long days of carrying. And those are my two faves- ring sling and mei tai!

I'm mostly a pouch person because the ring slings intimidate me. They seem so confusing. Probably just me.
Great pics. The kids look so happy! :)

I love my ring sling, but I am anxious to try a mei tai too! You've had so much use out of your carriers - how wonderful!

Thanks for sharing! Hope you'll stop by and see my pics too.

I am in the same situation-our budget doesn't allow us to get tons of different slings either unless I can find great deals or get them free! (thus I only own two, one I bought, one a gift). I really want to get a ring sling though, now that I am reading how much all of you guys seem to love them!

Very cute photos, especially the last one! My littlepixie used to love napping in the the mei-tai, I think they feel so safe and snug being carried :)

I get some serious chores done with Suzi in our Ellaroo Mei Tai. Especially when she falls asleep! I like how you tucked her legs in on front; I can't stand to have my baby hanging from her crotch, so she normally just rides facing me.

Isn't it true that we have fewer pictures of US since Mothers are usually the photographers of the family?

Cute pics, though! I loved my sling... Wish I had another one to put in it... :(

Great slings. I never got the hang of the ring sling myself :(

I have used the baby carriers, but I have never been able to figure out the sling!! Maybe with #4??
