I have one of the infamous infantino bag sling. After watching the news today I am terrified of it. It does wrap DS into a ball like they said. So what sling is safe, easy to use, and won't break my wallet? He is one month old but is a preemie so is a little small. I would love to be able to nurse in it. And possibly some light cleaning.Answer Question

In addition to the Hotslings pouch, Moby, and Ergo which are all good carriers, for a ring sling option you may want to look at the Sleeping Baby slings which are excellently made, not too pricey, and (like other ring slings, and like the other carriers mentioned) they are quite safe and secure when used properly. The purse style "bag slings" like the Infantino are not safe - they're designed wrong on several points and you're quite right to get rid of it. Good for you for being a savvy mom!
Good solid info on the difference between the bag sling and other (safe) carriers is at the Baby Sling Safety page.
