    Default Sling Addicts, What are your FAVORITES in your collection?

    Sling Addicts, I was just reading the string where many of you have 5 or more slings! I currently have a Bjorn and I just got a Sutemi, which my DD is too young for. She is 4 months and soon will be strong enough to use it. The Bjorn works, but I would like to try something different. I am looking into other slings as I run lots of errands and I fear that DD is spending too much time in her infant carrier. Out of your collections, which ones do you use the most and why?

    Thanks for your input!!

    Ooh! ooh! That would be me...sling addict. ;-)

    I have said repeatedly, and will say it again, if I could only have two slings (perish the thought!), I would have a KK Adjustable Fleece Pouch, and a Zolowear Sling. If I could only have one, I'd bite my fingernails a lot and cry, but it'd be the KKAFP.

    I use them the most because I can carry both of my kids that get carried (the 3 year old and the 15 month old), with the same carrier, and in a wide variety of positons. Both are user friendly, both have very short learning curves, and compared to all other carriers I have owned/tried, they are undeniably more comfortable for everyday and extended use.

    I have a Mom & Me Creations hemp pouch, non-adjustable pouch from www.daisy-doodles.com, a Solarveil adjustable ring sling and a Zolowear sling.

    I have been reaching for the Zolo without fail since I got it. I love the adjustability, and the natural cotton is comfortable even in the summer. Come fall, I'm sure that I will use my hemp pouch a lot again, because I really do love it, but I also really like being able to "tweak" the rails without taking the sling off!

    I love my Zolo, but my "go to slings" are still the simple pouch style slings that I have made for myself. Since they fold down to nothing, they are so easy to have with you at all times. And since i made them myself, they fit me perfectly. :)

    I have narrowed it down to the Zolo (cotton) and the Sutemi (for back carry). I also owned the KKAFP and the Ergo. Liked them a lot too but just didn't work for me and DS.

    I have the KKACP, KKAFP, Bjorn & red cotton Zolo. My favorite for shopping/out & about is the Zolo. My fav. around the house is the KKAFP.

    Have fun,

    I'm currently trying to make this decision also...
    Why the KKAFP over the Zolo?
