Hi, I have lurked here a lot but never posted. A little about me....I am married and we have a 14yr son and almost 4yr daughter. We are TTC #3, probably will be using Clomid (I have an appt next month) because I have PCOS.

Anyway to get to my question...I am a big girl, size 24/26 depending on the brand and I want to try using a baby sling.
Does anyone know or has anyone tried baby slings? I have done some research and from what I have read the Moby is probably the best for plus sized women. But I wanted to get some first hand experienced views....

Haven't tried the Moby but I am a fan of the Baby K'tan. I'm a jeans size 24 now, a little smaller on top, and I have a size XL Baby K'tan. I think I would probably like the Moby too if I tried it. The only other one I've tried is the Maya and I didn't care for it too much but it would do in a pinch, and I might use it more when he is older.

i have a Baby K'tan as well and love it. their sizing has a pretty good range, so you should see if they have one that would fit you. i highly recommend it. it is a lot simpler to put on than a wrap, but it can be worn in all the same positions.

hi im just a lurker. you might want to look up the maya wrap. some of their styles come in extra large which i think would be more than enough for you (and me im the same size)

I have a Moby and I didn't like it.. Way to much fabric for me and I heard can be very uncomfortable during the summer months..

I use a Beco carrier and I love it.. Just snap and go.. I'm a size 20 and the Beco fits me just fine..
