That is the truth. Have any of you seen what an OLD carrier looks like? Well I can't find the picture now, but pretty much a major death trap! There was no support at all besides one strap behind baby's back and it was a hip carrier. The thing was ugly and didn't look like it would hold a baby in place! Especially not a squishy newborn.
Earthslings will though. They make Slings which are great for a newborn because you can lie them in and they're fully supported.
I received the Stretch Drill carrier, I believe in the olive.
Sizing was a bit difficult at first. She's an Australian company so it was tough and I had to convert the sizes. I'm a US 4 so about an AU 8... So I said Small, but she said unless I have a narrow rib cage and shoulders and small breasts she would recommend a medium.
So I went with Medium. As long as I did the Shoulder Flip (makes it just a bit smaller) it fit with Avery's doll. But as baby gets bigger I can unflip it and it should fit for a long time! So I was glad she recommended the Medium and that I went with it. It fits great.
The drill is almost like a denim material. It's thick, but not overly so. It's easy enough to put on. There's no wrapping involved so it's quick and easy for a fussy baby. And it would be super easy to nurse in as well.
She also has wraps and ring slings as well.
Price: The Stretch Dill Sling is $60AUD So this is $57USD, which is reasonable!
