I looked around for another alternative. I was lucky enough to find the HugaMonkey organic sling; bonus, it was cheaper then my first sling! It was stretchy because of the organic fabric but also had a wider fabric style so it could accommodate a larger baby. I got the XS size after contacting the company to see how the sizes worked out. I usually opt for the smallest size for myself because I am fairly thin and just about 5"4'. I was very happy with my decision. The HugaMonkey sling allowed me to breastfeed comfortably and also fit Tubby a lot better. I used this sling for over a year; it went on vacation with us. Whenever we went anywhere my baby was happily snuggled and secure. Here we are waiting at the airport for our night flight to Sweden. I was hoping he would be lulled to sleep next to my chest but that plan failed miserably.
boba. It was perfect. It literally resembles a hiking backpack with padded straps, a chest clip and a padded hip/back supporting waist belt. I could not believe the relief and comfort of putting my heavy toddler in this carrier and walking around like a weight was lifted off my (one) shoulder. It was fantastic. Tubby loved it and I had tremendously more freedom of movement. We have used it around the house so I can get cooking or chores done when he is cranky. We have also used it on walks to Target or the library, both in warm weather and recently in the snow. Here is a picture of my sister using it. I don't think there is a single picture of me using the boba carrier because it is usually during the day when I am home alone.
