Do you, or do you plan to babywear?
This is one of my ring slings I put him in fussy and he sleeps right away for hours.
I won a BabyKtan last week and exchanged it for a smaller size so cant wait to try it when it comes. I did the wrap thing with Madison and hated it.
For the stage where they can't situp without help I babywear a lot. Mostly because it's easier than carrying the baby in your arms, a stroller, heavy car seat, or grocery cart. As they get older I will continue to wear them for things like hikes or going to places where strollers don't work well, but I do it less at home, unless they are sick and/or need snuggles.
I love it for when I have to walk places in the wintertime, because I can put my coat over both of us and we keep each other warm. I always worry about my kids sitting in a stroller in the cold, because they aren't walking to keep warm the way I am.
Here's a picture of me barely pregnant with my older daughter and wearing my son.
I have a cheap toysrus wrap, and also a beautiful didymos, linen wrap, which is good for warmer weather. Sadly Colton hated being confined anywhere. Wraps, car seats, swaddling, etc. He screamed, still does in fact, I bought a sling to try with him, and he cried til I took him out of it. So Im going to have to find a good site to sell my wrap, it was only used a couple times, less than half an hour all together!!
Mom to Colton,Megan, Caitlyn, Nick, Brandon and 2 angels.

I wear both my boys at various times, ages, stages. When Liam was little we did the mei tai and the Ktan sometimes.
When kieran was smaller we had a ring sling we liked. And also used the Ktan and mei tai. Now that he is older we use the ergo and a wrap.
I feel I have basically every type of carrier I might want and just grab for whatever I am feeling at the time. Both my boys he liked it and continue to. Liam asks to be worn a lot. Kieran is out of necessity....since he is huge and not walking yet.
