    What a great choice, although I found it sooo difficult because there are so many fab designs, keep going back and seeing more I like!
    Still patiently waiting the arrival of mine, the postman must think I've got a crush on him because I'm always waiting for him and fling the door open excitedly :pray: BRING ME MY BABYHAWK!

    hey girls. ive been meaning to post this for a while.


    i really struggle to get her on my back n our mei tei. does anyone have any suggestions? alice finds it VERY funny though and cracks up the whole time. It just seems to take loads of adjusting to get her feeling 'safe' and even then im not sure if she is too high. How high/low is best?


    anyone made any new purchases? ive been very good and not even looked. although at the moment i can't use ours because it hurts me to carry alice to much still :( im hoping on friday when the stiches come out il be ok.

    Ok for me to help you both properly can you take a photo of the lo's on your back so i can see what you are doing and help you correct it if you need too :)

    It can feel really weird when you first wear a baby on your back though. Sometimes the carry is right its just that you arent used to the feeling so it feels wrong if that makes sense.

    If its the tying while baby is your back because they are a wiggler and wont lay down over your back for you to bring up the MT then you could try the hip scoot method.
    Have a look here for photo instructions http://s16.photobucket.com/albums/b19/m ... on%20back/

    i read this entire thread today - took about 20mins - lots of information but can someone tell me - very simply - which would be the best sling to start with - i have never been a baby wearer before even though this is my 4th. I am 5ft (does that even matter) and would like one that fulfills these requirements
    1. very easy to put on - i'm a bit thick about those kinds of things
    2. can use it to bfeed disreetly
    3. will leave my arms free (remember 1 have 3 other kids)
    4. easy to wash/dry in machine/tumble dryer - never hand wash if you can help it - thats the mantra of my life
    any advise would be helpful
    thanks thanks thanks (in anticipation fo course)

    i would say a ring sling then, as the long bit of the sling can be used to cover up while breast feeding, plus its very easy to wash and dry.

    no tieing etc so easy to put on, but i may be biased as i prefer them :rotfl:

    i have a normal one, as long as u spread the material over your whole shoulder its very comfy. and dries quicker when washing.

    which make one were u looking at?
