Check out Metrominis, it's a baby wearing store in my neighborhood and they sell online. They sell lots of carriers, I got my mei tei and boba there. They also have baby wearing classes and carrier fittings for anyone that can get there.

I have to share my favorite carrier of all time - "Minnie" (I anticipate wearing my grandbabies in this - and my oldest is only 6!!). DD still loves it, and she is over 2 1/2. Although I only wear her once in a blue moon now, Minnie is still going to Disney with us in 2 weeks and I anticipate wearing her when she is tired and needs to sleep.

We went on DCL when she was 9 months old, and quite literally in 1/2 the pictures she is in the carrier.

When she was 16 months, her big sis and I went to WDW. In the heat of August, I wore her for 1 1/2 hrs from Norway in Epcot to the Poly all while she slept. BOY was she hot, but I'll do anything for a sleeping baby!

Also, if you are looking for carriers, I HIGHLY recommend thebabywearer (TBW). I got several carriers on there for me and I have also sold several. The best thing about the carriers is they don't depreciate in value (at least from what I have found). Before I got Minnie (as a trade on TBW), my favorite was my Mei Tei from Wrapstar.

I do wish I had known about babywearing with my 1st (babywearing along with cloth diapers were the best things I figured out with my 2nd!)



And the sweetest picture...

I have a pink solarveil zolowear ring sling that I used last year. It's great for holding baby in line! It's also great for nursing, the tail can be used to help cover up. The solarveil is sort of see-thru, very thin material and was very cool. I wore DD everyday and she was 12 months. We often had her in the sling on rides, too. I think TSM she had to sit on the seat, but otherwise most rides she rode/slept thru.

If you're ok with buying used (normally excellent used condition), do a search on Facebook for "Babywearing Swap". You will find a VERY active swap group and you can get some great deals on carriers. Bobas come up very frequently, often for as low as $60 shipped.

I've gotten most of my carriers through the FB swap group and I've sold many carriers as well. Nobody ask how many carriers I own/have owned, please.

I highly recommend a wrap conversion MT, if you can swing it. I have a NuzzleMe Creations WCMT (from Didymos Eva) and it is rock solid and soft as butter. I also have a wrap conversion full buckle and I LOVE it, but I don't think the wrap part is as awesome in a FB as in a MT.

Vatanai Igloolik is the one wrap I would grab in a zombie invasion, if I could only grab one wrap. It's thin, soft, and wonderfully cool and airy. It isn't the most supportive wrap that I own, but it's still plenty comfortable in a mutli-layer carry. In fact, if I had to destash down to two wraps, I would go with Igloolik and Natibaby Afrika. Those are the wraps that will stay to carry my grandbabies one day.

No one asked, but if I could only have one carrier total, it would be a standard Kinderpack. LOVE that Kinderpack!!!

Would a wrap be better to wear DS while at WDW in the heat of May? I only have the Boba and find it great for wearing for long periods of time but I'm really worried about both of us over heating!
