Anyone have any experience with either of these? Both look pretty good. I'm a little bit worried about using the infant insert on the Ergo b/c is looks so fleecy. It's clearly not designed for deep south summers. I swear, you can cut Arkansas air with a knife in august.
I've never heard of the catbird one but we have an ergo and love it. You can also get a light wrap. A ring sling or one similar to a hotsling. I can't recommend staying away from snuglis and baby Bjorns enough. They are not good for you or for your baby.
Oh and the insert is not really fleece it almost feels like a pillow. It doesn't need to be used for very long actually. I belive the beco has a built in infant insert but don't quote me as I am not sure. Oh and a baby ktan is a good option as well.
I looooove the ergo. We used it when DD was as little as two weeks. The infant insert isn't fleecy at all, it's pretty breathable cotton. It's better for long walks and the part that covers baby's head protects from the sun and wind, blocking out light but still leaving plenty of breathing room. Perfect for naps. I love the moby for snuggly babies, too. That was all I could wear her in for a long time because I could tie it above my c-section incision. The ergo sits pretty low on the hips. Later, when she was learning to walk and wanted down all the time, my favorite thing was a sling. We just got a handmade one that was a solid piece of fabric--no adjusting. It was really easy to pop her in and out of super quickly and it folded down to almost nothing to fit in my bag when we weren't using it.

I had the Beco which is similar to the Ergo I think. Ill be honest I never got use to using it. Maybe Im not a carrier person but I just never felt comfortable in it and I always felt like my son wasnt comfortable either.
I've never had any of these but it reminds me of a funny story. My close friend was expecting a niece and she bought the momma a money and to play with it, she put her little dog in it and carried it around. She loved it.
I have a Moby wrap and a Beco Butterfly. I had the worst time with carriers when I had my daughter, I bought so many until I found the two I liked. I didn't use the Beco when she was an infant because I hadn't bought it yet so I am excited to try it this time!
