I thought I would share this website. http://www.ukslinglibraries.co.uk/ and on facebook too https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=709966018#!/UKSLNetwork oh and www.naturalmamas.co.uk/forum is very good too. You can probably work out from my avatar photo that I used slings iwth baby number 1 and it is my intention to do the same with baby number 2. I'm also a trained babywearing consultant and alongside the teaching job run a sling library. It was hip health week last week and I know lots of people will probably buy a sling (BB, tomy etc) but they aren't best for baby or for wearer. I know they 'give you' the option of facing baby out but again this isn't supporting baby's hips and will become uncomfortable for you much quicker. I'm 35weeks pregnant, have a prolapsed disc and can still wear my 30lb 2year old comfortably for several hours if necessary in a woven wrap or a mei tai.
