I have a HotSling & an Ergo baby. Both are great for different reasons but I also purchased this evenflo baby go dash carrier and i LOVE IT TOO.
Hotsling--Very 'airy' and cool (i have the beach version) and u can cradle baby when very young or in hip carry VERy easily and VERY sylish. My hotsling actually makes ME look better when I wear it lol. Everyone asks me where I got it. Only for small outtings, like mall or grocery shopping, walks in the park. nothing like a hiking sling though, too much strain on the shoulder. I love my hotsling for walks.
Ergo baby--Its very supportive and is a little easier than a snuggli i had 4 years ago (i never figured it out and never wore it more than once, it was strappy, ugly and complicated). The ergo though, to me, seems better for babies a little older. My 8 month old is petite and ahs trouble keeping her head and arms up or she is blinded and wants to see so she fights and cries. I also don't like how ergo baby cant...
