Baby Sling?

I never had one with my son because I don't know where to get a good one. Where can I get a nice fitting sling, that I can use a lot? And I was wondering can I put my baby in a sling and nurse with out using my hands? That would be so great, because I have a little boy too. Anyways, I see pictures of them all the time, and I really want one. But I don't want one of those chunky ones. I want the wrap one I think is what it is.. I don't really know, Its thin and easy. But where can I find one?

  • You can get a Moby Wrap / Sleepy Wrap. Thats what Im planning to get. Their sold at Babies R Us for about $40, their perfect for nursing in public and keep the baby very close to you without padding or plastic.

  • My friend makes them and I love them Also, some people from my La Leche League make them as well. You can nurse without your hands when they get older, you can also nurse wthout your hands in a mei tai, or a wrap as well. Yes.. and do get the ones that hold the baby tightly to you.... never the ones where the baby is hanging..... those are actually dangerous.

  • Do not buy a Sling Ryder by Infantino!! It is really a bad sling. Too bulky and it doesn't sit well on you.
