I have never tried the munchkin sling, but I have a hotsling and I actually make pouch slings and they're pretty simple... I would guess it'd be hard to screw up the design, so the brand shouldn't matter too much. 

The one thing that may suffer for a cheaper sling is the quality of fabric.   So, one thing to think about.

You can find reasonably priced pouch slings handmade on etsy.com... I always support the little guy over the big guy!  :)

And I prefer my pouch to a wrap.  Wraps are just too much for me... too much fabric, too much tying, especially with tiny babies.  I really enjoyed my wrap with my older son when he was 2+, but not at all with my newborn... I may have to try and drag it out again now that my baby is older though... hmmm...

I'm not  sure I have seen those. I'll lok it up/


ETA: Which Munchkin sling are y wanting to get? The  jelly bean cargo sling looks exactly like the infantino that was recalled & I would NOT reccommend  it. The other ones are pouch slings & I can't reccommend them or not because I've never used one. If you want a wrap you can make your own without any sewing cheaper. (get 5-6 yards of jersy cotton that is at least 30 inches wide. If it's wider cut it to 30 inches & there you go, jsut google how to tie a wrap)

I mad one JUST like this and LOVED it. I had a New Native sling and i love my homemade wrap so much more. And no sewing was perfect for me. I stopped using it when she got too heavy since it was all stretchy and she would sink so low. But then i just bought a WAHM Mei Tai of of etsy and i love it too. I would have like it for when she was smaller as well. 2 great, inexpensive options.  I got my fabric at walmart for $10 and that made 2 wraps. And my mei tai was $30.

I love mine. You do have to be careful as to how you put baby in, so that they stay safe. Its easier when baby is older...right now, I can do the hip carry and its wonderful!
