I love ring slings. LOVE them. They are easily adjustable, and double as a nursing cover (use the excess tail of the sling). You can wear baby in any number of ways....snuggled on your chest, facing out, nursing position, on your hip (my favorite), even on your back.
They don't give you back pain at all if they are used correctly. Just make sure that the sling is fanned out over your shoulder and carrying baby is effortless.
Warm snuggles AND hands free!!!! It's also a much better position for baby than a front pack is. I remember when Reagan was 7 weeks old I went on a walk to the park to watch Josh play softball. When I got to the park I realized that her feet were losing circulation in the pack!!! Her little feet were turning blue!!!!! I took her out of the front pack, and bought a sling....and I have never looked back. LOVE 'em.
Some people are so good at wearing their babies, that they can shop, clean, cook, or whatever while nursing!!!!!! I was never that good at it, but it is possible!
Baby wearing does take practice, but once you get the hang of it...it's great.
Slings I have tried, and love.......
