I wore my nanny kids right up until I had my son in October of 2009. When I started babywearing I had trouble figuring out how to wrap so I stuck to the Mei Hip for a while, but when I found out I was pregnant I was determined to use something cozier. I found a ring sling maker on Etsy who was selling simple dupioni silk ring slings and bought one... then two... then three of them, and Aidan lived in those slings for the first three months of his life. Eventually, I found my way to TheBabywearer.com and joined the community there and fell head over heels for wrapping.
