[ha, I just realized I have been putting cora's arms in the wrong place...whoops!]
1. the boba [here] This carrier is hands down the most adorable one I've ever seen... Cora protests getting into it, but usually falls asleep once we start walking. It was about $75, from ecomom.com- cheapest I've found it for sale. The downside, which led me to purchase #2, is that she can't face outwards in it. Big bummer.
2. the infantino [here] This was super cheap at Babys R Us...$21.00..amazing! It's comfy, simple, and lets Cora sit outwards...the picture of us above. She could also sit facing towards me- but she loves observing this world- so outwards is her happiest right now. I am able to get things done around the house while she just contently watches.
3. the moby [here] This one our pediatrician recommended, to help Cora in her early weeks. She was and still is a fussy baby. His thought was to help her feel more like she was still in the womb. She hated it, I don't care for how tricky/time consuming it is to wrap. Cora doesn't like feeling confined, but likes to be close to us- so not a winner for this babe. Maybe the next baby will like it more. It was about $40 at target.
4. the sling [here] This one we have yet to use. It's super cute and simple. Also about $75. However, I have a large (the biggest size) and only recently does it actually fit me. I was too big post-pregnancy. I also had some worries about her suffocating in it if used improperly. But now that she is bigger I am looking forward to her sitting it with her upper body out. I think it will be that extra support for when she likes to sit on my hip.
