    Default Help! What one to buy?!

    So many have recommended I buy a sling or carrier for DD (7 weeks old) as she's a terrible sleeper and I just cannot get a thing done through the day. Perfect night sleeper though! And would make school pick ups easier not pulling the pram out



    Anyhow, most have said Manduca?

    Im happy to spend up to $140 but that's really pushing the limit. I need something:

    * Both DF and myself can use (he is about 174cm and I'm 163cm)

    * He's slim build but I'm plus size (round size 20/22 or so...still carrying the pregnancy bulge).

    * Easy to put on alone... Simple and easy is best!

    * Doesn't need to be tied (have had a HAB before and hated it)


    So hit me with suggestions and best place to buy them

    I would absolutely recommend a manducca. You can pick them up 'slightly' cheaper (try your local sling group or "Baby Wearing Buy Swap Sell" on facebook).

    The only other thing I would suggest you consider would be a Mei Tai.

    I've seen them on Hugglebaby for $139 free shipping too.

    So it's a good but and a good carrier?

    Its an awesome carrier. I had the ergo and I found it was good but I could never get fully comfortable in it. Manduca is less bulky and no extra attachments needed, you can use from newborn to toddler. Very easy to use and adjust if your partner wants to wear it. Totally awesome!! Go for it!
