I am looking for a sling that is easy to get on- keep in mind I seem to be sling-challenged and have had a hard time with every sling I've tried. I'd also love to find a carrier that I can use while sitting down.... I have not had much success doing that with the Maya unless I sit down for a long period. But I'm usually up and down every 10 minutes or so.
I'd mostly be using the sling around the house, but this one looks like it would also be great for walks, grocery store, etc-- am I right?
CAN you use the Sutemi on both shoulders easily??
I'd also consider the Ergo, but I've noticed 2 drawbacks-- one is it doesn't seem to be able to have a side carry, and two, I've seen more positive reviews about the comfort of the sutemi, in comparison. Anyone disagree or have further comments...
I have a Maya wrap which I'm not so good at using, but I'm getting better. It does, however, get uncomfortable after awhile. I have a Baby Bjorn (which definatly hurts my back now), I have a wrap-type sling which I'm not so good at figuring out, and a Nojo which I haven't used in months. My son is 6 1/2 months old and around 17 pounds. I hope that is enough background
Thanks for your help!
