What is your favorite sling? I have a seven sling and I love it but I was wondering which ones are best for older babies as in 3 months and up.

Are you looking for a sling in particular or just a baby carrier in general?



Ring slings are great til about when they can start walking, and are adjustable to fit both parents. They can be worn on the hip or the back.

I have a moby wrap and another carrier. I am not good with tying the moby wrap right and I don't like the other carrier. I love my seven sling it just seems she probably wont be able to fit in it much longer. A ring sling sounds nice!

A ring sling is good for quick ups and downs. It might get a bit uncomfortable after a while depending on how big your child is though

Probably your best best as far as comfort and ease of use right now would be a soft structured carrier of some sort- Ergo or Boba 3g (If you get one of those two make SURE to order from an authorized retailer because there are a ton of fakes going around that aren't safe- especially Ergos.), possibly a standard Kinderpack although she might still be small enough for an infant sized one, or standard sized Tula just to name a few.
