I ordered this sling after experimenting with three other baby slings/wraps/carriers. I was in between sizes, so as the site recommends, I ordered up a size and wish that I hadn't. My mother, who is bigger than I am, has tried to use the sling with my son as well, and it seems big on her as well. The sling hangs considerably lower than pictured. The pocket of the sling is deep and has an excessive amount of fabric that surrounds the baby in the cradle position, making it difficult to get the baby out of (especially when sleeping). I have reserved writing a review for multiple months, as initially, I thought that perhaps my son was too small for the wrap, but even now that he is 4 months old and is able to support his head, the wrap seems big in not only the cradle position, but when he is on my hip as well. I am apprehensive about using the sling to hold the baby on my hip, for fear my son will slip as it seems to offer little support. The company's site offers multiple 'holds'/uses for the sling. When actually having the sling in your hands and experimenting with it, most of the holds end up being very similar, and those that are different lack feasibility in getting the baby in and out due to position and the very deep pocket. The sling is very light weight and seems to distribute weight better than some that I have tried. I'll give credit where credit is due and say that even encompassed with fabric and sunken into the pocket, my son seemed quite satisfied in the cradle hold as an infant. Now that he is bigger and more alert and aware, he does not enjoy not being able to see what is going on. I have experimented with the sling and recommend putting the tag farther back on your shoulder/back than the company recommends. It seems to work/fit better that way. I will continue to try this product with my son as he grows. I am interested to see if it will better accommodate him as he gets bigger. I would reserve recommendation of this product as of this point.
I purchased the HugaMonkey for myself in size large. It was actually too small for me so I gave it to a friend who absolutely loves it. She says its a great product and she nor the baby has any problem with it. She says it really comes in handy.
