    Anyone use a baby wrap/ sling carrier like the moby wrap or the other similar ones out there. Is it worth spending the money on?

    There have been some reports on infants suffocating in those, so I'm kinda of weary of them honestly.

    I have an Ergo Carrier that I got for my older daughter that I'm now using with my new DD. I use it all the time, and for me it was well worth the money. But I think the kind of carrier that's best depends on the mom. I have several friends who swear by the Moby wrap and some who love slings.

    Incidentally, it's the slings that have been linked to a handful of deaths over the past 20 years or so. When carrying a very small baby, you need to be careful not to obstruct the baby's airway with the fabric. Also you need to watch for babies being curled into a "C" position with their chin against their chests - this also happens in car seats, and you need to be careful of it happening in those as well. Neither of my DD's cared much for slings, so I never worried about it.
