I am 5ft7 and 310 pounds. Reccomend a sling/carrier for me?

I want one as uncomplicated as possible, 1 piece preferred! To use from newborn. My foster son comes home from NICU maybe next week. He is now 6 pounds 4oz as of this morning. The ring slings scare me a little. Also it's Summer, I am big and get got easily, and live near Savannah! Don't want a million yards of heavy sweaty fabric weighing me down. Have 3 other fosters and 2 of my own to chase around. Lightweight, simple, sturdy, safe. Suggestions?

  • I am pretty thin and that thing seemed to small. You might contact the company and see if they have them a big bigger. My sister is about your size and she uses the cloth ones with the rings for her newborn twins. They really are nice and she doesn't get hot.

  • Why not just carry the baby?
    You might have to call someone to get a special one. Im small and those are tight .
