    Anyone using a baby carrier/sling. What type do you use?

    I really want a Moby....I think they have some of the best reviews. I found the Sevensling today and they offer the sling free (type "candie" under discount) with S&H ($11.95), but not sure about those.

    I use a baby k'tan and I love it. My kids are on the bigger side and it works perfect for them.

    I also use a front carrier from infantino. It's the same thing as like a baby bjorn. I like it a lot, but it's not as versatile as the k'tan.

    I had a baby bjorn w/DD1 and for some reason couldn't stand it. I really want a moby, but not sure I want to spend the $$$$ in case LO hates it. Hoping to find one on craigslist or consignment sale. I am going to look into the k'tan. :)

    I know that Target carries the moby and k'tan cheaper than most places, but you have to get them in black or white. I got my k'tan $20 cheaper than what the actual manufacturer website had. Might as well get a used one though if you can find it!

    Ooh, Ooh....I just got a BRU coupon in the new sale booklet for a Moby for $31.99 and I think I have a $10 off coupon. I'm going to call and see if I can use both. :)

    BRU is crappy about coupons! I hope they let you but I really doubt it!

    I have a question for both of you . . . I never used a carrier with DD1 and would love one for DD2, but she is already 15lb 9oz. Would it be worth getting one when she is already so big?! I don't know much about them, but I would need a front carrier at this point (for her head control) . . . Any thoughts?

    I still tote my 2 year old around in our baby k'tan, and she is 32 pounds! The baby is almost 14 lbs and I'm using both the k'tan and the front carrier with him. I guess it's all about how you want to use it! I would totally say it's worth it, but I've always toted my kids around rather than using the stroller.

    The k'tan can be used as a front carrier as well as many other positions. For bigger kids it's like a hip hold.

    You were right....UGH...if I didn't love BRU so much I would quit going!!!
