there's my little guy. he's about 6 weeks old (or as i like to say 10.5 weeks corrected, he was a 42 weeker).

who has what kind of sling here, and how do you like it. i have a maya and a mei tai. i think i may want to get a pouch sling, how do they compare for nursing on the go?

i love the meitai but only for short trips where i do not have to nurse. i love the maya, but my baby has a heat rash problem, and the maya keeps him very bundled which i think is aggravtaing the problem.

for cding mamas: where do you find onesie extenders? or what brand of onesies fit over cd?

he is too cute, and lookit the CHUB!!!

I use a mei tai which I AM IN LOVE with!
but I also have a kelty carrier (bleh)
and a ring sling

the ring sling is more comfy now that hes bigger and doesnt get lost in it. would be grfeat for nursing because you can shift it around easily and theres enough room for baby to not be squished.

For onesies, we are using carters 3-6month ones and they fit great :)
so far I have noticed anuthing that snaps at the crotch and not the kind that come around to the front work good.

the carters 3-6 are way too narrow (in the bellah) and too short. maybe i need to go up a size. :(

yeah, I think they worked well for us becuase they are longer without being wider and Gage isnt really chubby yet

if you are interested in buying a ring sling my friend wants to sell one.

i have a maya sling... and it works well for me, i'm just worried about the heat factor.

i may be interested if it's made out of a super light cotton though. the maya i have is more of a thicker woven fabric.

holy crap he's cute! and such a chunky monkey!

Right now, I'm loving the wrap (I have a cuddlywrap which is pretty much like a moby, only by a Canadian family business) for my 11 week old. He's about 14 lbs. I haven't tried onesie extenders. I just hate onesies. They don't fit right over my fitteds/covers. I've been using babylegs and long sleeved tees with nice fleece covers or wool. I'm in the process of knitting longies because my brokeass can't afford them. All the longies and sleepers I got handed down to me have pretty much gone unused. Occasionally I use a sleeper at home, but it just fits strangely. I like having access to his big ol' butt, anyway.

BTW, icon love.

I love a fat baby!

We cloth diaper, and I have found the best solution is to buy onesies that are too large. He's in 3-6 or 6-9 months in most other clothes, but I put him in 9-12 month onesies, and they fit perfectly over his big ol' fluff butt.

I up-size onesies, Kyra is currently wearing Carter's Just One Year brand 6-9 months.

We have a Hotsling and are loving it. It's a little awkward to figure out how to nurse in, but once we had it down, we were good to go! She doesn't seem too hot in it, but upsize by one if you have a real big baby. I could wear a 5, but I bought a 6 and it fits so much better around my chunky girl (she passed 15.5 lbs a month ago)!

Chubby and CUTE!

I'm loving my Maya Wrap sling. I also have a New Native pouch, but he's still too small for it, I think. Or he was the last time I tried, anyway. He screamed every time I put him in. :-(

*Squeee!!* I love the chub!

I've got the maya wrap, and I also bought a long length of tee-shirt material to make a wrap similar to a Moby - you'll need at least 5.5 yards, and it's very cool, comfortable and versatile (not to mention inexpensive if you do it yourself). I think the babywearer.com has instructions on how to nurse in one.

Veronica is long and skinny, so we've only had to size up to the 3-6 month onesies for extra length. She's just now outgrowing her 3 month clothes at almost 5 months. I will warn you against any BabyGap jeans, should you be so inclined. They're awfully narrow.
