I'm going to make this post a sticky post and leave it at the top of the community. There hasn't been enough community traffic to continue a monthly ISO/FS post. So we can just use this one permanently. :)

If you are looking for or selling a sling or carrier, feel free to post about it here! If you own a shop and want to advertise sales on your slings and carriers, it can also be done here. Please keep all ISO and trades/sales in the comments of this post.

Please be sure to ask for feedback when making trades/sales. And always request a DC#!

Have fun!

I've loved my Ergo when my babies were small, but I have tall kiddos and a high waist, so I have trouble with a front carry once they're bigger.  The waist strap digs into my stomach when I try to do a back carry.  I'll take suggestions as to how to fix that, but I'm also interested in suggestions for a SSC to lust after that might alleviate those problems!

I'm not sure if there are any Moby fans in here, but Toys'r'Us is selling one for $FOUR-dollars(provided you ship to a store).
Figured it was too good not to sure with you ladies - Happy Holidays y'all :)

Okay, my newest little lovebug is a constant nurser. She is a pretty light sleeper and really likes to sleep nurse. With this being my third, I don't have the luxury of rocking and nursing her for 90% of the day. But I am terrible and always have been terrible at nursing in carriers. What carrier works the best for you to get to some approximation of hands-free nursing? What method of carry works best? I have a beco butterfly 2, a stretchy wrap and a woven ring sling (but again, I am terrible at ring slings). I've watched several videos on nursing in ring slings but it will not come together for me. I mean, how do you keep the baby close enough to kiss while nursing, for one thing? My breasts have not been that high since like 2000, heh.

You'd really think I'd've gotten the hang of this by now, but nope.

Thanks for the help! ETA: I will seriously consider buying another carrier if there is an idiot-proof way to nurse in it, so if you have a recommendation, lay it on me.

Does anyone have a used ergo and/or ring sling they're looking to sell?

So before I had my LO, I bought a ring sling from BabyEtte and I've loved it! However, I've found it a little cumbersome for around the house (the way weight is distributed isn't very ergonomic IMO). It's great for throwing on and doing quick trips into a store. So, I bought a gauze wrap from her and I'm in love! However, I can see why it's more advanced LOL. I've got the front wrap down... mostly :)

I have a few questions:

Help :DCollapse )

Thank you all!! :D

what would you use to carry a big kid -- like a big almost four year-old? my son still loves being carried in the ergo, but he has outgrown the weight limit and his feet fall asleep in it. i'm not really a wrapper, and my husband will be the primary person using the carrier (i usually am carrying our one year-old and would love to have the ergo back for that purpose!). external frame packs haven't been comfy for us in the past. is there a soft structured carrier that would work for such a big kid???

So, we went on a family outing to a lake on Friday, and we took my 3.5 week old baby with us. I mostly stayed in the shade with him, or carried an umbrella with me if I went to the water, but at one point, I found myself wearing him down at the water without my umbrella, watching the girls while my mom took a dip. The sun came out, and I wanted some shade for the baby, but the umbrella was too far to fetch and leave the girls unattended, so I grabbed my mom's sun visor and popped it around my neck. It worked great! It shaded his face from the sun, but gave him a gap for air, and it was curved, so I could still see him. If it was just a few inches longer (there seems to be a tiny wedge of skin showing), it would be perfect! Someone should market this...

My daughter is five weeks old and was just under six pounds the last time she was weighed. Her feet are really hard to keep warm. I have a woven wrap, and this week she decided she wants her feet out. Her feet were warm when froggied, but now I don't know how to keep them toasty. Socks won't stay on her feet and her feet are cold even with a footed sleeper. It is still around 70 during the day here.

I'm just wondering if there is anyone here in the SoCal Babywearers FB group :)
