    This looks similar to the one on that program 'bringing up baby' which i liked the look of.

    Thank you for the link :D

    I have had 3 carriers and have worn Freya since she was born, I started with the Premax sling http://www.alongcamebaby.co.uk/acatalog ... MAodcEMoFA and she practically lived in it :D . I really dont know what I would have done witout it and was sad when she out grew it at about 4 months.
    Since then I have brought a Moby Wrap carrier, I love this too, it is similar to the Kari me, I believe, but about £10 cheaper, Freya is so comfy in it and I regret not buying it earlier http://www.baby-bean.com/moby-wrap-baby ... b9fa47dac4
    I also had a Tomy freestylye, but found it strained my back.
    I love wearing Freya and rarely use the expensive pram my mum brought me :oops:

    I've just been through the site and the kari-me looks fab! I think I'm going to get one of those instead of the bjorn active.
    Can I ask, is it fairly straightforward to put on?

    I was between the kari-me and the moby wraps. I PMed someone on PF who had both to ask which they preferred and they said the Moby so that's what I bought. I got it from Sasa Slings and I would recommend them. I got it in black as I figuered it goes with everything and was a bloke friendly colour (or shade) for OH but my mum has given me in to trouble as it's not a very baby colour :rotfl:
    I've only used it with a cuddly heffalump so far so I can't say what it's like with babies but it looks good and was easy to put on :D

    I have to say, when the moby first arrived I thought OMG how on earth do i put this on, but the instructions were excellent and I only had to look at them once.

    Ditto for the Kari-Me - I can't recommend it highly enough!
