Can anyone advice me on Baby Sling? I really like the idea of them, as they are a very natural and healthy way to carry your child. So any suggestion of slings or do's and don'ts would be greatly appreciated.

I would recommend ring slings, they are better and can be changed to many forms, the cheapest yet durable available in the market are the ones from Mamaway.com and Mothercare. You can also check Maya Wraps and Dolcino but they are really pricey.

I have heard some feedback and testimonials from my friends about Mei Tai but in the end they all (me too) preferred Dolcino and Mamaway.com Anyhow I will ask others their experience on Mei Tai. Smile

Post subject: Hi
Baby slings which are made of soft fabric can be a safe way to carry a baby. Although slings are easier way to carry a baby, but slings can pose two different hazards to a baby:

1.Because an infant has weak neck muscles and can't control her head, the sling's fabric can press against her nose and mouth, suffocating her in a minute or two.
2.Additionally. the sling keeps the infant in a curled position with her chin bent toward her chest, which can restrict her airways, limit oxygen supply, and suffocate her slowly.

Here are some safety tips :

1.Make sure your baby's face isn't covered by the fabric -- you should be able to see her at all times.
2.If you're nursing your baby in a sling, change his position after feeding so his head is facing up and clear of both the sling and your body.
3.Frequently check to make sure your baby is okay.
