We're expecting baby #2 in April 2012. I've been looking online for a baby sling/wrap and can't make up my mind. I used one occasionally with my first, but it was a bit too big for me and I could only use it when he got a bit older and could hold his head up on his own. I want to try a different one because I think it will come in handy when I'm chasing after a toddler and trying to care for a newborn.
I'm leaning towards the ring slings, as they look pretty easy to use in comparison to the wraps that use 50 feet (slight exaggeration) of fabric (my sister had one of those and it took two of use to get mom and baby wrapped properly).
Anyhow, just wondering what type of slings/wraps other moms have used? Did you find them comfortable? Did you feel that baby was secure? Did you buy one and then never open the box?
I know it's a bit early to be shopping, but any excuse to shop is a good excuse.
