Yeah, that's the only one I've heard of. Everyone I know uses the aluminum ones.

I ordered the nylon cause they seem like they would be more comfy, was that a bad choice?

I think they're both safe, but some people prefer the look of the aluminum.

I've never made one myself, but I've heard the best fabric to use for baby carriers (unless you're using a woven wrap ) is osnaburg fabric. The ladies in the babywearing love and support group could probably say for sure.

What about a jersy knit fabric?

I don't know about that. After the baby is more than...10 pounds or so it wouldn't be supportive and would be extremely uncomfortable for the wearer. I don't know if it would affect the safety.

Ok. My mom works in a peds office and she sees them a lot and she says they look stretchy so. Trying to find the right fabric is a pain lol.
