I've used both a ring sling and a moby wrap. They both have their uses and you can nurse in both. If your very active (like when I'm chasing after my toddler), the moby wrap is more secure and the baby tends to fall asleep in it. I used the ring sling with my first born starting when he was 5 months. It worked great on vacations and tours. I also liked using the tail to cover me while nursing.
No matter what sling you choose, remember, there is a learning curve. It takes practice to use them.

I've used the Moby Wrap and the Sleepy Wrap. I preferred the wrap-style because it seems a lot safer for the baby, infinitely adjustable to the size of both baby and carrier and able to be configured any number of ways, including a nursing position. Of the two I prefer the Sleepy Wrap because of the stretchy material. My son liked being in the at first but started crying whenever he was put into it after about 2.5 months, until he was able to use the forward facing positions after 4-5 months. Now he loves it again.
