me and df have decided to buy a sling and we went to the maya website together and thought that their slings would be the best for our purposes. we are only 2 in apart in height so we can buy one and switch off between the two of us ( i think its so cool he is willing to wear it )

i was just wondering which you would prefer. i was originally looking at the sling with the excess fabric but when i saw the pouch i really likes that one. i like the fact they both can go up to about 35lbs so its just a matter of what is more convenient before i order this sling!

thanks for any advice and tips

I used the sling and loved it. I wasn't comfortable the first month or so and I did start with the Baby Bjorn. I felt like he was lost in the sling when he was a newborn. I don't think you'd have that problem with the pouch.

Well, I never used the pouch, so I can't really compare them. I have the sling because I thought it would be more versatile as she grew and could be adjusted more. I love it and haven't been disappointed. I've used it since the baby was born, she'd lay down in it. Now she's almost 4 months and sits up in it facing me with her legs dangling. Hope this helps. The company is really easy about returns, so maybe you should order one and see how you like it.

I have the pouch and really like it. One thing I have to say though is it's much easier to use once they can hold their head up on their own. Before that, it's kind of awkward and I ended having to hold her head myself so it didn't really leave me with two free hands. It is neat and compact and comfortable. After an hour or so my shoulder does start to ache a little bit but I just try to shift the weight a little. She seems to love it and looks so comfy cozy in it. She can face me or face out. I don't think you can hold them in there lying down though. That is kind of a bummer when they're newborns, so I just used a padded sling most of the time when she was first born. The best part of the pouch in my opinion is the popablility factor. It's so super easy to pop her in and out of it. No fuss, no trouble, no tying, so easy. Also it's adjustable so you can adjust it as they grow.
