Advantages: comfort, ease of use, closeness and bonding, washable
Disadvantages: can get a bit hot
I am a parent of twins and needed a sling to enable me to have the option of using a single pushchair and sling instead of the tandem.
The Kari-Me is a single piece of fabric which is wrapped around the body and tied in one basic way. Once on, this is then adapted to carry a baby in four different ways. It can also be used to carry older children on your back- it is suitable for children up to 15kg. Although it is initially tricky to put on correctly, after a couple of goes, it really is very easy.
Both of my sons are immediately calmed by being carried in the sling and I sometimes use it to soothe them to sleep whilst I carry on with other activities. It is very comfortable to wear and you really don't notice the weight you are carrying because it is spread out over your upper body. It also has the advantage of being made of wide fabric which you can stretch out across your shoulders to spread the load even further.
I cannot recommend the Kari-Me highly enough and intend to keep using mine until my sons are just too big for it anymore!
Summary: excellent baby carrier, highly recommended
