Do you love your baby wrap/sling- or do you wish you would have left it at the store?  What kind do you have?  Are you going to try to get one with this pregnancy??

I have a k'tan wrap, a pouch sling, and a bjorn carrier (that's more for DH when he finally comes around to the idea) - haven't tried them yet since she's still baking, but I love the concept!

Ok. I like the looks of it except it looks hot. Are they hot to wear?

I love all my carriers! I have used a sling & moby wrap for tiny babies, a have used my mei tai only for my older dd because I just got it. I love wearing my babies :)

I've never used mine in warm weather, so I'm not 100% sure. The fabric is pretty stretchy & breathable though.

It almost just feels like another shirt to me.

I couldn't have made it without my Hotsling.  My baby screamed whenever I put her down, and I literally carried that child every moment until she was 6 month old.  A Hotsling is less bulky that a lot of carriers and it enabled me to walk around the house and clean up.  It was also crucial for grocery shopping.  Whenever I hear babies crying in their carriers in a buggy, I just want to tell the mom that a sling is the secret to your baby NEVER crying in public!  They are just snuggling and sleeping when they are in there.
