We're expecting a little boy on February 2. We haven't been down the newborn road for 6 years now and much has changed. Not with the newborns, of course, but with the newborn STUFF. God has provided most of the necessities that I have since given, sold, or donated away. BUT, one piece o' gear has caught my eye that wasn't "all the rage" when Roman was tiny. A sling!
My mom recently brought me some of my old doll clothes that she made for my babies when I was a little girl. And, in the mix was a little sling that I remember toting my babies in. I loved it! So, it seems like I might like toting Dane in a sling too. I'd use the one my mom brought, but something tells me it won't fit quite right.
Here's where you all come in. I need some input. I've not known anyone who loved their sling like I think I might. And, honestly, I haven't done much research at all, so I thought I'd start here. Please give me your opinion. If you know someone who has used/is using a sling they hate/like/love, let them know I need their feedback too.
I do know there are slings that are only for newborns and then there are ones that "grow" with the kid. I'm open to feedback about both. Because I'm practical, it makes sense to go for one that gives the most miles, but I realize that might not be the best option.
To date, I have only 2 responders to my posts (I think, maybe 3 tops), so if you are reading this and you have an opinion, please let me know. Your thoughts will be much appreciated!
