How The Heck Does This Baby Sling Work?

How does this sling actually WORK?

Every year on Black Friday I say I am not going to buy anything, and then inevitably I get lured in by online deals that sound too good to pass up.  This year was a little different than most.  Instead of looking at electronics and clothes, I found myself shopping on and buying holiday onesies.  Life has changed!

One of my purchases arrived yesterday … the Balboa Baby sling!  Now somebody tell me — how the HECK does this thing work? 

With all the babywearing I’ve been doing recently, I have really been wanting a sling — something easy and quick to put on when we’re out running errands or grocery shopping.  I love having Cullen on me, and he is so peaceful and content when snuggled on my chest.  But both my Ergo and my Moby wrap are a bit cumbersome for putting on quickly, and I have been hoping that a sling would solve that problem.  I manhandled him for about five minutes trying to find something that was comfortable for both me and Cullen, but I felt awkward and he looked squished and miserable.  The sling was a bust.

I’m not giving up completely yet, and might try watching some online videos of how to wear it better, but I’m so frustrated that the sling wasn’t a better solution!

In the meantime, it’s back to the Moby wrap.  (Hi Indy!)

I know some moms swear by the sling, so I’m hoping my problem is just user error.  Is there a trick to making this more comfortable?  Is my baby just not big enough yet?  I’m really hoping to find an easy and simple babywearing solution soon!
