Baby wearing

Those of you who do baby wearing, what is/are the best slings and wraps for different ages? My husband got me this ultimate baby wrap with my last baby and I only found one position that worked well for breastfeeding, but it did not feel comfortable to me at all. I've been looking for a good sling for a newborn since I'm expecting my 3r, but have no idea which ones are best.

I had the ultimate baby wrap and gave it away after my second because it only was really good for whne they were tiny and weighed little. So, then I got a sing sling, and that worked from newborn up to now I carry my 25 poiunder in it. The only issue is that it hurts my shoulder if I do it all day, but its easy to take on and off and adjust. I had a mei tai that I would wear my kids in, but not newborns, and that worked really well for all day things (like the fiar, beach, zoo, Disneyland). I just now got an ergo, and I'm so excited!  I borrowed one for a week and loved it, but it can be expensive, I think well worth the money though!

The slings are great.  Just be cautious using one with a young baby because the sling tends to push their head down into their chest and cause suffocation.

I like the Moby (or similar) wrap for the first few months and then switch to a soft structured carrier such as Boba, Beco, or Ergo.

I just got a maya wrap ring sling for this baby that I have heard great reviews about.

I love wraps for little babies and the Boba for bigger babies. But honestly with my last baby I used a Boba from very early on!

Wraps when younger, meitai/ssc when older....
slings for quick carries from beginning to end.
