Baby wearing (wraps)

 When my son was 3 months old I loved wearing him in the Moby Wrap but since then I've learned that it isnt the best wrap out there. I'm currently pregnant with our 2nd and due at the end of May. I would love to wear this baby but I'm not familiar with all the wraps. I really love the idea of a wrap but I want to get a safer (and cheap) wrap that will work better. Any idea's?

Woven wraps are great after the NB stage. Safer and hold more weight.

It depends on your budget. There are even DIY options. If you can give an example of how much you can spend that would help.

Also, your local LLL or natural parenting group may have a sling library that you could use for a lot less than buying one. It would also let you try a few options out before deciding to buy your own.

I want to try and stay under $60.

We live in a very small town and I would have to drive 2 hours if I could even find a sling library.

I'm not a babywearing expert but I would suggest a gauze or woven wrap, especially since it will be lighter weight for the summer.
