need sling recommendation
Thu, 08-17-2006 - 6:24pm
hi. i'm from the due in july board (soon to be a Sparklers Playgroup!!) I'm looking for a good sling recommendation that would be good for nursing. i bought the hotsling and i just think it's too small (i got a 3) so the baby hated it. i don't know if i had him in right (he's only 10 lbs and he seemed so smooshed). i was looking at a bigger size hotsling or the new native. your suggestions are appreciated.

I use Slinglings slings. I have 3 and each one is a different fabric. The babies are sorta smooshed when they are in the slings. You have to kinda jostle them in there. Rebekkah's arms had to be crossed over her chest. I included a pic of Rebekkah when she was like 1 month old.
