I figured baby gear would be easy with my third child. I replaced the batteries in the bouncy seat, wiped down the swing and ordered new tubing for my breast pump. One product, however, had changed substantially in the eight years since I had my first son: the baby carrier.
The fleece sling I relied on those first few months with my first child had since been deemed a suffocation hazard. I was comfortable using a rigid front carrier (the Ergo) with an older, outward-facing infant but wanted something softer for a newborn.
