Searching for a sling...

Ok, so apparently I DO NOT have everything I need for this baby.

And, frankly, "need" is a big stretch of the phase I'm in right now. I want a sling. However, not just any sling. I'm not big on those huge 15-yards-of-material-need-an-engineering-degree-to-put-it-on types. I'm actually looking for a specific sling. I saw it a few years ago on a website that was about the infamous Duggar clan. One of the older girls had it on and had in it one of the babies. I have no idea what the website was/is but I want that sling. It had some type of back support.

I tried carrying Josh AND Drew both in a NoJo sling... they both HATED it. I don't blame them. They seem ridiculously lost in all that fabric. So I bought another called a New Native. It's non-adjustable. It sucks too. They all get squished up in a little ball.

Now they have all these recalls for slings b/c of this very thing that I hate about them -- they squish them into a ball so that they can't breathe.

So, anyone know of a sling that I should try? I want to be able and NEED to use my hands every now and then but want to keep my little Benjamin close... I'm lost... :( <>

Some slings have been recalled and no longer available because babies were being suffocated while in them. Moms not paying close enough attention and the babies faces would be covered and they couldn't breathe. It could be one of those that isn't made anymore.

I'm using the yards and yards of fabric one and also a Bjorn. I actually like both, but Noah has head control and so can be placed upright ...he digs looking around and seeing things...on the other, the Duggar's website endorses the Ergo carrier with an infant insert for newborns...
