I have never been a big fan of baby carriers. I mean, I like the idea in principle, the idea of having the baby close to you at all times and reinforcing the bond between mother and baby, but the practical side...actually WEARING the thing is a nightmare. With my first baby, I borrowed a baby carrier from a friend. I only used it the once as I hated it. I hated the restriction of movement that I had and the strain that the sling put on my back. I was also really worried that if I was to fall over, It would do the baby a lot of good! By the time my second baby was born, I had noticed that a different type of carrier had come on the ...

I am writing this just to keep you all informed about how I am getting on with this sling. After my first child and the trials of using a Wilkinet (for a full explination read the review) I used dooyoo to try and decide which sling to buy. I opted for the Better Baby Sling. I bought it from NCT site on line - it sounded ideal - mainly due to the claim that you can EVEN breastfeed with it on! Baby no.2 is presently 4 months old. I admittedly haven't used the sling outside as much, as with my first child. This may be partly due to the fact I no longer have to rely on public transport, or live on the 8th floor with a dodgy lift to contend with! But in part ... Read the complete review

i gave the better baby sling a thumbs up a while ago, but didn't have time to post my opinion of it...so here goes. with my first child i had one of those Tomy jobbies...all very comfy (to begin with, when child weighs no more than 9 or 10 pounds!) and straps everywhere, but with my second child i was, happily, introduced to the joys of the better baby sling.....So fantastic to feel your baby "next" to you, the sling being part of your relationship with the baby as opposed to being a "way of carrying the baby around". You can breast-feed, then you can move on to the dreaded supermarket etc without disturbing the babe, and, as i have found, the ... Read the complete review

I got a sling from the Better Baby Sling Company with my first Child and will definately be using it with my next ( due in a month). I had a Tomy front carrier at first but I found that this really pulled on my neck and shoulders. Jake was quite a heavy boy ( still is in fact) and I think that your back takes a real pounding in pregnancy and afterwards as your stomach muscles aren't really there to help take the strain. It's even worse if you have a section... Anyway I thought I'd give this a go - after all I'd seen the Women in my village in Africa carrying babies for miles in fabric slings and I have to say I never heard one of those babies ...

I bought this sling when my daughter was born, but I wish I had not. I could not get on with it. The sling comes with a video on how to use it, and how to make your baby comfortable. It has padded shoulder strap, and large bucket to pull trough so you can adjust the size. Once I managed to put it on and get comfortable, it was a matter of making my daughter comfy, and that was not so easy. i would say this is for the smaller baby, because mine was 9lb 2oz and she was not happy in this sling. I also found it gave me back ache, but then she was 9lb 2oz and I may have had it on wrong. The sling its self can carry up to 32lb's, and is fully machine ... Read the complete review
