One of the best things I ever bought for Charlie is his possum pouch. I know lots of people have lots of fancy slings, baby carriers, fill in device name here. I got mine for $15 at Marshall's at the beginning of summer. It's a 6 way carrier that works with baby facing in, out, can be a shopping cart cover, in place of a chair if there's no high chairs, baby can sit in it in the car seat if they're sleeping and it can also be worn as a back pack. Anyway, here's some shots of the pouch in use from last summer till now. It's been a good 7 months I'd say.
