OK I bought my sling on a complete whim during the beginning of my pregnancy because I simply thought it looked cool! I got it from http://www.hotmamaink.com/, and they make the coolest stuff! I got it thinking I wasted my money and never would use it. But I brought my Lucas home yesterday from the hospital, and put him in it and we both really like it! I love the freedom it gives me, and I don't need to be 2 places at once while wearing it!
Although, I Googled baby slinging and although the idea of attachment parenting seemed cool, some of those women on the message boards were frightening! I like the idea of slinging but I am no earth-mom and I don't want to be made to feel lesser because my kids are vaccinated and my son is on formula (I have a thyroid problem that inhibits milk production as well as being on meds that seep into the milk). I refuse to judge any mom on her lifestyle choices for her children! I am not afraid to say we go to McDonalds every now and again, and yes I support the evil Disney Corporation LOL!
